Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!


I felt accomplished yesterday. I changed the horrible wipers on my MINI (the ones that were SUPPOSED to be changed when I took it in for servicing. The ones they TOLD me they changed, which NEVER WORKED until I changed them yesterday) and cleaned the nozzles on the windshield wiper fluid shooting thingies. They were clogged so only two of the four were working; coupled with the wipers whose rubber was actually coming off, my windows looked like CRAP at any given time, including right after I'd washed them at the gas station.

As an added bonus, after changing the wipers yesterday, it rained today. I can predict tha' futah'! It's starting to feel a little more like Halloween; it was still muggy after the rain, but the sun wasn't nearly so blinding, which was nice. I'm so ready for some more rainy weather.

Also, I failed a major work-related test (Insurance Adjuster Licensing for the state of California, natch) I was supposed to take. I was, like, uber-depressed about it, until I found out only 3 of the 14 people passed, and I was the only one who failed by TWO FUCKING QUESTIONS OUT OF A HUNDRED OMFG. That made me feel a little better especially considering I only studied a few hours at the material was kind of insane, aheheheh whoops. But fuck me. Now I have to go all the way out to LA again to retake it. Won't be happening anytime soon, that's for sure. At least I sort of understand car and home insurance now! When I call MINI Motoring Insurance to see if I want to change over, I'll sound like I know what I'm talking about!

Oh, and Idgie's taking me to see ~Neil Gaiman~ next week! He's in Santa Monica on his Graveyard Book tour, reading from the new book. I'm gonna get Stardust and Absolute Sandman Vol. 1 signed wheeeeeeee~!!! And try to convince Idgie to rent a hotel room instead of driving all the way home so late at night ;O;.

...Other than that life is boring. How about you guys?

[joins you w00t!] The sad part is the guy who taught us was one of our legal guys who also teaches a class on how to pass this same test at one of the colleges around here. He told us what kind of stuff was on the test when he took it, and our supervisor had to sub for him a couple days but HE took the test three different times and also said it was the exact same test as he was telling us about, and yet we still all failed. Laaaame.

[happily accepts; it was 102 yesterday, so hot I actually drove with my windows up and air conditioner on. as opposed to today, when it was 92 and I rolled all my windows down like usual. :Db] That is EXACTLY what it's going to be like on Monday. Exactly. You can predict the future!

As long as we're together, that's fine with me!

Oh well. ^_^;;; I'll get another chance to try again, even if it means going into LA to do it. :P

Yeah, it wasn't exactly comfortable! But this area's still not as bad as my old home, I moved here from Memphis and while it didn't usually get quite that hot, it was often in the 90s AND the humidity was at, like, 80%. THAT was intolerable. XPPPP Death Valley is too, we've passed through there on the way to Vegas and obviously there's no humidity but it ends up in, like, 110s and 120s in the dead of summer.

There's always predicting the lottery... I'd totally split the winnings with you if you gave me the numbers. :Db

...Did I inadvertently quote HSM? Dear Tallest NO. O_O
