Four new tires. That was the latest car expense, as of today. But now driving my car doesn’t feel like I’m pedaling it through mud. In fact, I found myself going ten miles over the speed limit on the expressway home tonight — which isn’t good, I try to drive the speed limit. So I kept having to slow down.
Anyway, I needed the tires — the old ones were on their last bit of tread, and I drive too much these days to risk bald tires or cheap retreads like I used to when I lived in Miami. Fortunately the tiny tires my car takes aren’t that expensive. But I’ll be watching my pennies for a while.
In other news: seven attempts to upgrade my WordPress install via the automatic thingie failed today, probably because everyone is trying to do the same thing. So I gave up and downloaded the files and at some point this weekend will be doing it the old-fashioned way. So if at some point you get to this site and get some weird message or something, it’s probably just me deleting old files and uploading new ones so wait a few minutes and try again.
In other news, I have the day off tomorrow, so I’ve decided to bathe the cat. She’s getting that “stinky cat” smell. Also it will piss her off which is hilarious. I may film her with my Kodak all damp and angry.* Heh heh. I’ve become extremely bored with the internet, so I may actually do some real reading of paper books, or may work on one of the several stories I have cooking. Or I may just sleep all day.
*Just added to clarify: my Kodak will not be damp and angry; my cat will. My Kodak is actually rather placid, even sluggish at times. If I got it damp, however, it would probably be sort of… well, dead, as it is not the waterproof model. I will not get my Kodak damp.
