BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

6 days.

Wow. 6 days into December and this is my first post. Can you tell I've been swamped?

Okay. That's not exactly true. Why I have been busy with end of the semester stuff, you can blame books for my big absence. I've been a real bookworm lately. I think I read 5 books this past week. I was off to buy Eclipse today and start it when my car decided to break down. God bless the kind man and his wife who stopped to give me a hand. Seriously, the kindness of strangers is amazing. People like him really help me believe that humanity isn't a complete wreck.

The man who stopped to help said he thinks it's my clutch. But of course, it's Saturday, and the shops were all but closed by the time I got a hold of a towing company. And they aren't open on Sundays, which really doesn't make any sense to me. People need to drive on Sundays, too!

So, I am currently car-less and Eclipse-less. I wanted to get a bunch of Christmas shopping done today, but I am stranded at home and my poor car is stranded in a parking lot in town. And I was going to go to urgent care to get my hand x-rayed (I have a big, and I mean BIG, bump that has been growing) but I couldn't do that, either.

Geez, I really didn't mean for this to turn into a vent-fest. Things could really be worse! It's just bad timing, that's all. Christmas time when my parents are already strapped for money... yikes.

But I'm still alive, in case you were worried. (:
