So it ends up that I need to have the brake lines in my car, not only replaced, but completely rebuilt. Apparently they rusted or rotted out, or whatever it is that brake lines do, because I live so close to the water. I mean, doesn't everyone in this neighborhood, or I mean, even on this Island kinda live close to the water? But then, there's no saying what the previous owner did with the car either. Maybe s/he let it sit on the beach all day and night. Anyway, so this is going to be pretty costly. And then I have to get the trunk refinished, too, because there was a fault in the original finish, and now it's rusting through.

Everyone's going to get cheap Christmas gifts this year. >_>


Yesterday at work, Lao Shir came in with her big black cat. I brought her cat up front to her and we got to talking. She looks and sounds great, and it's always so heartening for me to see her looking so well. We talked a while about Kung Fu in general and about the tournament (she's still pissed that Chris got robbed the way he did,) and about the cancelled (possibly postponed?) dinner.

After that, an old friend of mine, Dwayne, who was one of my bestest buddies about ten years ago, came in to pay his bill. He didn't believe me that it actually was ten years ago that we used to hand out every wednesday at his and Raven's house. He also said that he must remember me wrong, because he'd have sworn that I was a good four inches taller than he was. This mystified me until he asked if I used to wear heels, and then I remembered that I did frequently wear four inch platforms back then. It was good to see him. I used to be madly in love with him. But, he enver liked me back, not in that way.

Today was Hula and then Kung Fu with Tristan. He was kind of brutal, like he can sometimes be, and I'm sure I won't be able to move my arms tomorrow. But I do love when we have classes like that, because it really gives me a feeling of accomplishment. After that, we had the option of--for an extra ten dollars--staying on another hour and learning some trapping and locking techniques and practising them. They were actually loads of fun.

And right after that was my second-cousin Branden's 8th birthday party at Chrissie's house, and that's where I just was. Damn, I've still got loads to do, like clean the bird cages, take Pendragon out, dye my hair and take a shower.

Le sigh. More to follow in a locked post.
