Albuquerque is for spellers

I stole this from my sister's blog. It's awesome! You can type in whatever you want and it becomes a sign:

Bad Car-ma

I just had to leave my car in a Target parking lot overnight, causing waves of stress and grouchiness. Luckily, it only meant buying a new battery, which is under 100 bucks and easy to install. It also inspired me to look for a "Basics in Car Repair" class, because I'm just about the most clueless person on the planet when it comes to cars. I've never even checked my oil. But on the plus side, I have a very good relationship with my mechanic!

Sometimes I imagine myself buying all the right tools and spending a couple hours on a Saturday morning tinkering with my car, alone with my thoughts, Hank Hill style. Then I think about shopping at IKEA instead, and just dropping off the car to let someone else do it. And it sounds a lot better.

Cupcake fever

Today I spent $10 on two cupcakes and a bottle of milk. The cupcake WAS pretty delicious, but worth $3.25? Prob not. Apparently cupcakes are all the rage now. There are going to be 3 in Scottsdale alone. The verdict is in: cupcakes are the new gelato.

Jury Doodie

First time at jury duty. So far nothing has happened except I'm sitting in a room full of slightly annoyed people. And the cafeteria is in another building or something, and requires another pass through security to get back. No juice for me I suppose. Oh, now we're watching a movie about jury duty. I'll check back in later.


Well, after sitting the entire morning without being called, I finally joined a group after lunch. It had something to do with guns, and apparently I'm not the gun-lovin type so I didn't get picked. However, I DID get to sit all day in a government building on my precious day off. The system works.

Ways to spend your Saturday

Things I'm excited for:
Trip to Orlando in two weeks
My birthday June 2. I'll be 24. A good age I think.
The new Batman movie, though it won't be out for a while.
Adding egg to pizza
Summer camping trips

Things I'm not excited for:
Jury duty on Monday. My first time. I predict it will be a big waste of 6-8 hours
Summer heat that makes it so I can't roll down the window.
Cleaning out the litter box
HOA fees kicking in soon
