- Cars, money, and life.
- December 11th, 2008
It's been a while since I've last posted. No, please, hold your applause. I know I've many fans here on the intarwebs but you'll all have to wait until I'm done before I start signing autographs.
Anyway, down to the meat and potatoes. I'm buying a car. An almost new car. Not right away, but within the year. I'm looking at the Ford Fusion. :) Looks nice, good reviews and decent gas mileage. Also it's called a "fusion". The only hitch is that it's 12-15 thousand dollars. Ugh. Stupid life.
I'm excited though. Up to this point I've just spent my money on frivolous stuff like computer parts so I could have a game rape machine sitting on my desk. Now I'll be buying something useful and more of a standard status symbol than just an e peen on the internet. Let's be honest, no one really cares about how awesome my computer is except for some of my more computery friends and perhaps my father. I dunno. It will be cool to actually have a nice car. Also as soon as I'm ready to buy the fusion I'll be selling my car, which while not "nice" per se, is a solid piece of equipment, at least for the poor starving college student that I know the vast majority of my friends are :) It's a 1998 Plymouth Breeze with about 130K miles on it.
Anyway enough of cars. Christmas is coming! Again! It comes faster every year. Stupid relative experience. I have no idea what i want. Does anyone else ever have that particular problem? I hate answering the question: "What do you want for Christmas?" I never know. There's not really a lot that I can think of right now. My primary interests are computers, gaming, and star trek and I have pretty much all that I want out of those categories. One of the problems of having disposable income... you dispose of it on the things that you want. *pats belly* mostly on stuff you don't need.
Which brings me to another point: I need a workout buddy. I don't care who you are but I want someone to go swimming/running with at forest park in teh mornings. I've tried to motivate myself, but it's harder alone. If someone would like to tag along then I'll feel better. Preferably someone who is more athletic than I am (not saying much) I just need top get rid of this gut of mine. God I sound like a teenage girl. If you volunteer for this duty there will be either cookies, lunch, or booze in it for you. Your choice :).
Holy shit I wrote a lot more than I intended. Damn. Welp... I guess that just leaves the standard "I'm doing fine" and yes, I still work at Boeing. Which is actually going well for a change. Being on schedule is so strange...
Anyways.. I'll try to touch base with you guys more often.. though I don't really know how many of you still check up on the journals that we were all so fond of back in high school. Until next time.
