Ooooh! A three part post!! On things COMPLETELY unrelated to each other!

Part 1
Piss off, Kia. My Kia Rio has an ANNOYING "feature" where if you lock the doors using the keyless thingy, and then use the key to open the trunk, the car alarm goes off. WTF?? Argh. Because EVERYONE knows that if you someone is using the keys to open the trunk of a locked car, THEY MUST BE A CAR THIEF!! Argh.

Okay, I thought maybe it was an overlooked little thing, BUT NO. THEY TALK ABOUT IT IN THE USER MANUAL! SEE?



JEEZ! In the stages of planning/designing this, I think the conversation went like this:
Engineer 1 - Oops! The alarm goes off when you open the trunk! Crap, I don't wanna have to fix that!
Engineer 2 - Ah, don't sweat it dude. We'll just stick a little blurb in the user's manual and tell everyone it's a "feature".
Engineer 1 - Awesome! Then we can go smoke a bowl! Plus, everyone knows that anyone trying to get into the trunk of a locked car is up to no good anyway. No way that they would be someone with their hands full of things to put into said trunk.
Engineer 2 - Exactly! What was that you said about smoking a bowl? I was going to design a button to open the trunk onto the remote start and fix the front fog lights so they stopped falling off whenever you looked at them funny, but your plan sounds a lot more fun!

There, writing that little thingy amused me and now I'm not as annoyed at being embarrassed by the Mikey Mobile making a racket when I tried to put something in the trunk this afternoon.

WTF?? South Dakota is the second "free-est" state?? SOUTH DAKOTA??? Whatever! They must have somehow overlooked the fact that we've tried to OUTLAW abortion like 3 times, and that we've tried to get something passed to outlaw gay marriage? *facepalm*

Part 3
I KNOW that everyone's got this lil Turtle pet thingy, but I wanted to make one :D

Well, I got a call back from the guy who smashed my car. Thankfully, he DOES have car insurance, so that's a relief. Now I just have to wait for the adjuster to call me back and I can get the Mikey Mobile fixied :D Yay!

Well, it's my 30th birthday today. Wow. I'm old.

Last night, at about 12:30AM, my dad called down to Jenn & my room, telling me that someone had hit my car. ARGH. AGAIN.

Long story short, some drunk driver was going down the street I live on (I park on the side of the road) Thankfully, the person who was behind them saw them and called the police and followed them. The police pulled the drunk over down the road and arrested him for drunk driving.

I called the police today and they said he was also cited for no proof of insurance. ARGH. I have his name and phone number, so I called him and left him a message. I REALLY hope he just didn't have his proof of insurance with him and that he isn't some numbnuts who is driving without insurance. *sigh*

That was depressing... here! this will cheer me up!



There, at least now I'm smiling a little :)

Hi all,
I am back from my trip to Utah. I am overwhelmed with stuffs to do, so if you have an LJ entry that you posted between Friday April 17th and Tuesday April 27th that you want me to read, PLEASE TELL ME!! (either via comment here or email or PM) I will not be catching up with my f-list, but I will keep up from today on. If you have an LJ entry where I am mentioned/tagged/etc please tell me and I'll read it. (Even if it's a meme, I like to see stuff about me, because like most humans, I'm ego-centric ;)

Here's about my trip:
Breakdowns, Inlaws, & Vodka, oh my! )

Ok, here's an update:

+ My Kia is still broked :( poor baby. I'm going to look at it and see how hard it will be to repair myself. It's just putting a new side mirror in after all.

+ The blood came out of my pajama pants. Yay! :)

+ Regarding this post about United. I called later that week (I think thursday night) and finally got someone who would help me. They changed our tickets to the correct date, so that's thankful. Thank God for small miracles. I guess it just took calling several times until I got someone who was willing to help me. (Either that or they got sick of me bugging them)
The scary thing is they still haven't charged the difference in ticket fares to [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy's card yet, so I'm still geared up to kick some ass if they overcharge. That's why i didn't post earlier, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. However, they HAVE updated the info on united.com, so at least that's good. I will print the tickets from there and then I will have them. Who knows, maybe they reviewed the calls and saw how frustrated I was and decided to be nice and not charge me anything more. (yeah right)

hi all,
I haven't looked thru my f-list, but I wanted to post this morning about the evilness which happened this morning. You know my new car? My orange Kia? The Mikey-Mobile? SOME BASTARD HIT IT LAST NIGHT! %^#+@%#+$@!!! I was parked on the street in front of my house like I always do. They sideswiped my baby and knocked the driver's side mirror out and knocked out a chunk of the plastic casing. ARGH. They left no note, so I have no idea who did it, so it's gunna come out of my hide. ROWR! I keel them. I keel them until they are DEAD. *sai* I know any sympathy I get is going to be tainted with "well you shouldn't be parking on such a busy street. You need to move" and all that bulls#i+. I just want someone to hold me and lie to me and tell me it's not my fault and that those people who hit me are bad nyars. *whines* Meybee my Jenn-Jenn will do so when I gets home. :(

cut for girly bad stuff and ickiness )

On top of that, I'm moody and I have a headache the size of Zimbabwe. Grrr. Maybe it's a good thing the bastard from this morning didn't leave a note, I might have called them up and screamed at them.

Dude... SO much to report. 2 BIG things from Monday

+ I GOT MY NEW CAR YESTERDAY!!!! *squeees* It's a 2008 Kia Rio SX
- I was sad to see my Mondo (my 1990 toyota corolla that I've had since 1999) go... I've had a lot of happy memories with that car.
- The new car has not earned itself a name yet, but I'm leaning towards Michaelangelo ;)
- This is the 1st car I've really bought all by myself. It's scary.
- My payments are $250 a month. Hopefully I can get them down after a while. I have a 11.85% interest rate. Does anyone know how soon I should look into refinancing that down to a lower rate? (I have a high rate because I have no real credit history) 6 months? a year?
- I just wanted to give a lot of luvs to Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy). She has been SO supportive thru this process and she even stayed up with me Monday night when I was freaking out over the fact that I had just spent a whole year's salary. *HUGS* Thank you SO much Jennifer *HUGS*
- Is it normal to freak out and wonder if you should have bought the thing after you buy something this expensive? I just dont know because I've never bought anything this big before... *sweatdrop*
- It's ORANGE YAY!!!!! :D
- Jennifer also helped me out financially with the downpayment a little. It was SO nice of her, especially when I know shes in financial straits herself somewhat.
- My insurance is $80 a month, which is okay, I hope it will go down after I show that I pay on time. Any one have any ideas on what I can do to clean/check my driving record so the price of insurance will go down?
- Taxes are almost $500. I'm going to have to liquidate some assets (sell some stuff) to pay for that in time... does anyone have any particular TMNT item they are looking for? I would prolly be willing to sell it to you! *cheese-eating grin*


+ Jennifer got a job!! :D Yay!
- It's data entry @ citibank :) It's like God sent this job just for her, which is BEYOND awesome!
- It's also the same hours my job is, so I can easily give her rides there and back. Like I said, this job is custom-made for Jenn ;)


And additionally:

+ Jenn and I got Super Smash Brothers Brawl for Wii. It is so fun!! :)
+ Olive garden is YUMMY! Monday night was the first time I had eaten there. It is good! Thanks for introducing it to me, Jenn! :D

Nyar!
Well, Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) is flying home to Utah for a visit starting on thursday night. I am going to miss her terribly.

Here's the big news:

Sometime this next month, I am getting a NEW CAR and then I'm driving out to Salt Lake City and picking up Jenn and her stuff and moving it back here. ... It will certainly be interesting driving 15 hours by myself out there. I hope I don't go completely batshart.

NE1 have any suggestions on what car I should buy? (or NOT buy) I'm looking at a Toyota matrix or a chevy aveo, but I'm open to suggestions.

Also, the BIG thing I hate about selling my old car is giving up my cool bumper sticker!



Does anyone have a sticker like this they are willing to sell or know someone who does?? PLEASSSEEE?

*hugs* to all my buds! ;D
