RIP Gary Coleman

I enjoyed watching you on Different Strokes when I was growing up.

Well...

Went to watch my friend perform with his circus group. My 7 mates and I parked our cars (3 incl my mini) in a parking lot across the road from the theatre. There was a sign which stated "Reserved for customers of Brunswick Central". We presumed that the Theatre and the surrounding shops were part of this "Brunswick Central". We came back an hour and a half later and my friends' cars were not in sight. (we were told later that the second we cross one of the roads around the parking lot, if we are not back in 30 min they call the tow truck)

Oh... Balls...

Called up the tow truck place, 1300 WE TOW U, and sure enough they just towed my friends' cars. For some reason I was chosen to not get towed... yet. I saw a tow truck move towards my car so I ran for it, hoped in and drove to another parking lot. In the time we waited to figure out our game plan we watched as 7 more cars got towed. There was a stream of tow trucks... and 4 guys on foot with lil wheel jacks so they could slide the cars out of their spots, ready for the next truck.

$400 PER CAR, and the impound lot was a 45 min drive away, which we had to do twice as I have no back seats.

end rant.

We I'm sorry to hear that. From now on I'm never parking in a lot like that.

Birthday Cancelled...

Sorry I'd attend yours but you're probably xxxx miles away. Happy Birthday Shanaynay ! Uh I peaked at your profile which showed your birthdate :x Have a great birthday and many more to come! :]

Rant: Why is it so hard to get into a university these days? It's so competitive out there...On the radio this lady is in 100k debt for school (NYC) and she's making $22 an hour.......there's no hope. Big population and so little opportunities for us. It's hot out in Modesto today, well probably 80's but that's hot. I can't stand the heat.
Sucks being in a low income family. Stepdad pressured me to get a car because our other two commuter cars that has 100 - 200K miles on it. I got my MINI..I love it, but now I'm in debt. GREAT. On top of that now I'm pressured to go back to school and get a BA. Ooh the potholes of living. Sometimes I don't even think it's worth living, too many problems everywhere.

When the hell are they going to fix that oil spill? I'm still waiting on the that to affect the gas prices.

Think I may have got caught speeding Middle of nowhere, sunny dry day, camera van parked up with a tripod mounted gun, came round the corner saw it and hit the brakes, the question is did she see me before I saw her? Wasn't going mega quick so I hope my brakes did the job in time... got a nice 14 day wait for them to issue me with a notice of intent to prosecute,

Just got my car tuned with a head and cam made 260 and got pulled over for 78 in a 45, I just did traffic school for 80 in a 65. I got pulled over both times because my exhaust made them notice me.

My MacBook pro is being stupid once again. It is not wanting to connect to my wireless. I think he heard me lusting for the ipad and is sensing it's coming realocation of duties
