My Car Has Catitude..

Yes I know I haven't written in a few days. Its been a rather long few days. Nothing major has happpened, however I have came to some conclusions after doing a wee bit of much needed soul searching. I am also finally over my headache. Word of warning. When ordering at a McDrive-thru make sure your order is correct before you take off. The auditorily challanged dingbat at this McGreasepit mistook my 'large regular Coke' for Large Diet Coke. Did I mention NutraSweet and me get along about as well as a pair of stallions trapped in the same pasture. Ugh..

Work was uneventful, however after work I nearly didn't make it home. (Well I exaggerate a bit, but hey its my story). I left work at 5, and went to my car. Insert key turn and --- nothing, nada not even a rururur, or a puttputt. oh great. I check, nothing has been on as far as I can tell, I try once more, my car gives a half ass death rattle and "She's dead Jim". Oh wonderful I am thinking. I have 2 pennies to my name, and I have to get home and get back to work tommorrow, not to mention everything else I have to do this week and so on. I debate walking to a phone and calling someone, praying that a jump start is enough. See I have had this happen before, and sometimes it tries to start and just when I think Iam sunk she roars to life laughing at me. (I have a car with an evil sense of humor). So I decide to just chill for awhile and maybe my car will start. (Miracles do happen, or some one I know will come by and I can try jumping from them, as Yes I do carry jumper cables I just need a car that works to connect to). So I wait and finally S****, one of my friends from work and school comes by. She nearly junps her skin when I honk at her, but she gladly drove around in front of me and we connect the cables. I cross my toes and eyes and ta da, old Lumina comes to life like nothing was ever wrong. I swear that car was snickering at me. Hopefully she will have a good nite and not be too vengeful this weekend as I have to work and run errands.

On a more meaningless note, I am in the running for a contest to win a Dr. Who audio CD, so if you get a chance, say a glancing good Word for me. Its trivial, but I hardly ever win anything, and I plan to keep trying at this site till I win, no matter how long it takes. And if they say anything about my address, well no where in the rules does it say the contest is limited to residents of the UK.

Tonight has been another wasted night. I came home crashed for a bit, totally bummed as the blasted child support hasn't come thru, and after paying al the bills so far, minus my student loan, I have approximately enough money left to either buy a weeks worth or Ramen noodles or a Gallon of gas for my car. So unless Mike comes thru, Warren and I may be living on macaroni and hamburger till the 15th. However I have no idea what I will do for cat food and kitty litter, not to mention unmentionables. (I stock up and freeze meat and such when it is on sale and I have the money, so I am not with out when things get tight.). However Warren needs a BS shirt for his Wolf Pack meetings etc.. I never got back when they called Wed. I was too damn tired to go answer the phone. The leaders meeting is Sunday, I just dont know if I will be able to volunteer this year. I always attend all his meeting and work on badges with him, but leading a pack is just bite than I can chew. Warren won't be able to be in the parade this weekend either. I just plain forgot about it. *sigh.. well time to go to bed, and prepare for another lousy day tommorow. I am debating rather or not to rent movies again this weekend (I still have that Blockbuster card from the Company picnic). Last time I watched movies I grew roots out my arse and couldn't separate my self from the sofa. I really need to be vertical this weekend so as to tunnel my way thru the crap here before trash day. (Monday). so.....

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
