1. Someone dinged my car yesterday. I know it was yesterday because I cleaned water spots off the car before I pulled it out of the garage, and it was perfect. I made a few stops and at one of them some punk ass hit my back fender with their door. Is it really so hard to get in and out of your car without slamming your door into the car next to you? And from the height of the dent, Id say it had to be a friggin’ Hummer or something. If you insist on driving a car that doesn’t fit into a normal parking space, then do the rest of the world a favor and don’t shove yourself into a spot that only leaves 3 inches between the cars. Thankfully, my dealership does this paintless dent repair thats super cheap and pretty amazing—and it should come as a surprise to no one who knows me that the appointment to have this blemish repaired has already been made.
2. While my car was probably being dinged, I was having a sandwich at a little cafe that is a popular spot for people to bring their laptops, books, etc. and just lounge for hours. The ladies at the table next to me were obviously students of medicine or nursing because they were studying VERY LOUDLY. Now, I know they were probably immune to such talk, but really…I did NOT need a lesson on how bacterial infections occur whilst munching my chicken salad sandwich.
3. My little brother celebrated his 18th birthday this past weekend. Congratulations to dad and stepmom for ushering the last of their children into the age of majority. It’s seems like just yesterday that he was forcing us all into watching Thomas the Tank Engine, we were playing demolition derby in the hallway(how many times did I rebuild a K’nex dragster??), and he was crawling under the table at every restaurant we went to to dirty his diaper. (what the hell was it that was relaxing about being under a table??) It’s rare that a kid can get to that age without ever getting into trouble unless they are simultaneously the biggest dork in the world–but he has managed.
4. I had a wonderfully lazy weekend. I did absolutely nothing and loved it! That’s not entirely true. The Easter Bunny (AKA my outlaws) sent The Price is Right game for the Wii. And I played the hell out of that…much to my dismay, I am not very good at it, but I did manage to win a Chevy once. It looks like something that would be a lot more fun with a group of friends than the one-player mode I was on…Wii party anyone?
