TRICK OR TREAT!

There's this kid downstairs who has Down's syndrome. Today he came in with an orange shirt on and his hair dyed orange. BRIGHT orange. SAFETY orange. It's pretty funny. His personal trainer type person said "hey, you're in the spirit today! Happy Halloween!" and he said "yeah" (like rain man) and then he smiled and said "YEAH!" It was pretty funny.

Today we stopped at the gas station for breakfast. All healthy breakfasts come from the gas station. I got one of those cherry cinnamon rolls (even though it's not cinnamon, maybe you know what I mean) and a thing of orange juice. When we got in the car, Tandra said she had a donut and chocolate milk. Immediately her breakfast sounded better than mine. That's ok though, I'm having the same breakfast today that I had every day in high school. Good times. Sticky though.

I'm feeling pretty good about cars today. My starter and alternator are fine, I just need a new battery. He fixed the brake lights and turn signals for $50. We took Tandra's car out to her cousin's last night and he was able to get the window rolled up. This is all very good stuff.

Every day when my computer starts up, Strong Bad says to me "hello, stupid, and welcome to your crappy computer." And every time there's a critical stop or error message he says "holy craaaap". <insert "reading Dick and Jane novel" voice>I like Strong Bad. He is funny. Strong Bad makes me laugh.</Dick and Jane>

I'm going to download Thriller and Monster Mash now. Bye bye.

I don't know if I'm just in a good mood or what, but this made me laugh my ASS off. One teaser - giant crab with Darth Vader's head. Extra Credit to anyone who can tell me what any of the songs in this are.

This one's pretty good too. Imagine a British version of Weird Al doing Destiny's Child. Pretty funny shit.

Right, so Breathe by Telepop Musik is on the Mitsubishi Outlander commercial, not the Montero.

You knew what I meant.

So tonight we will probably go pick up the SIXTEEN ROLLS of pictures we got developed. This means that most of my day tomorrow will probably consist of the following:

Feels like Friday.

I now have in my possession a car which is 100% functional. This has not been the case for many moons. I feel good about that, despite the additional load it's putting on my budget. At least it's out of the way.

Tandra's car is 95% functional as it needs a new radio, seat belt holding dealie, and climate control panel.

We both need tires. Bleh to that.
