Bad Karma Is Fun

I was bummed because none of the people I voted for won, but things weren’t that bad for the country.

I was minding my own business reading tweets and blogs Saturday morning When a guy in a U-haul truck came through my drive way at 11:42AM CST and pulled down the coax cable connecting me with the real world outside of Xanth. A call to the Internet provider resulted in a tentative 5PM appointment on Sunday. I got lucky as an appointment opened up at 11AM and a new cable was connected and working in 20 minutes. I was informed by e-mail that the charge would be $75. Naturally U-haul guy didn’t stop and tell me what had happened. (I have cameras around the house)

Then the car had issues and wouldn’t start. As the battery seemed to go out every 5 years, the battery needed changing based only on the time, so the $150 wasn’t wasted, but that wasn’t the problem. Based on the collective best guess $75 dollars later I have a new starter coming on Wednesday.

I am already looking at a $275 car insurance renewal payment in a week, so Christmas is going to be sparse this year. After fifteen years things are bound to break. If I win a lottery I’m buying an electric vehicle that isn’t a Tesla.
