So you know how last week I was a mere nine chapters behind and I thought that was okay because I intended to catch up in time for THIS week?
Instead, I moved into an apartment of my own and will now attempt to distract you from the paucity of my reading with pictures!
|Day 0! Observe how clean and tidy everything is!|
|Day 1: Moving makes me feel like a hoarder.|
|Day 2: What you don't see is the giant stacks of boxes in the corners.|
But wait! I do have gifs for you, and a personal story (tm).
During the move, I parked my car in a neighbor's parking spot so we could unload the moving van directly into my house. And there it sat until yesterday afternoon because it refused to start.
And then the AAA guy listened to it and said it was probably a starter problem, which is something I can afford to fix even though I moved, so maybe things are okay? So he towed it to a mechanic whom my apartment manager recommended. I called this morning and again the afternoon: nothing except the threat of a blown head gasket, which will cost more than the car is worth to fix, not to mention more dollars than I currently have access to. AND THEN I looked said mechanic up on Yelp and he's fairly well-known for dickish mechanic behavior, so I might have to have AAA tow my car to another mechanic down the road.
See, I didn't need to do the reading to experience the Human Condition.
Bravo, 2012. YOU WIN AGAIN.
