So I’m not necessarily *excited* about the car, but then again, it’s not a car I bought for the sake of excitement. It’ll definitely get good mileage. I bought it from a known source that I know isn’t trying to scam me. It was cheap enough that if it spontaneously combusts RIGHT NOW, I’ll recover financially.
This isn’t about Plan B. This is about my having looked at, like, seven houses today and most of them being variations on awful that I hadn’t necessarily considered possible. The sloped rooms and all. I mean, really. Here are the seven…
When I was back up in the Greater Seattle Area over Christmas, my dad was in the throes of a scanning-old-photos bender. So I ended up seeing a lot of old photos while I was up there. It’s interesting to see what your parents used to look like long before you ever knew them. Sort of makes the rest of the story to-date make more sense seeing what the beginning looked like.
I have no idea where I’m going to be living after the road trip (speaking of which, several updates on the other blog since last time I mentioned it). A couple months to decide, o’ course, but figure it’d at least be worthwhile to have some criteria set up: Rents < $1,000 for a place

The new living room. The place comes furnished, btw. It’s nice, eclectic stuff. The view out the front door. The boardwalk at
Or at least that’s my current operating theory. It was interesting to see how various people at work reacted to the news. Some surprised, some not so much. Me? Not surprised… Jadedly, bkd
Due to a specific and herewith unnamed set of circumstances, I’m moving (again) next weekend, this time to Laguna Beach.

And what a richer world we’d live in if I ever did…: “Spam Trap Wisdom” — It’s sort of interesting what blog spammers are using now to try and break through. “Keys to a Successful Life” — This post is finished already. I’m going to publish it one day, but I’m not sure whether it’s
