Stuff of the Day

Update: So, yeah, my former plans for regularish updates of the site again . . . weren’t fruitful.  Lots of shit happening, major pain in the ass illness, busy-ness, procrastination, laziness, and so forth.   Anyway.  After work today, I went to The Wine Rack, and bought $32.19 in beer.  2 six-packs, and 4 individual bottles (of varying sizes) of beer, representing 6 different countries.  Most of it is for my dad for Father’s day.  Throwing in some Irish brew I have left from this last weekend, there’ll be 7 countries worth of beer for him.  Out of the stuff that I do get to sample . . . I have to say, I like the Xingu.  It’s a Brazilian black beer, somewhat similar to Shiner’s Bohemian Black.  It’s better than the Shiner, which says a ton for me.  It’s also more expensive.  About 50% more per six.

My car, on Sunday, developed a noise.  Sort of a buzz, or a rapid rattle, inside the car.  Outside the car, it’s clearly something metal rattling.  It’s got me concerned, as it’s started happening more and more.  Something is probably loose.  I hope it’s an easy fix.  But even if it is, it’s an unwelcome expense with sucky timing.  I’m trying to save up some blasted money for GenCon in August, dammit.  Of course, spending money on food out 3 times this week, then $30 on something I truly don’t need (but is extremely cool, a 50mw green laser pointer) and $32 on beer doesn’t help that situation any.  Or $25 going to the doctor yesterday morning for her to basically tell me “you look fine, take Tylenol and gargle with salt water” because my throat was starting to itch again, and Jade came down on Monday with what seems to be the same thing that had me horribly sick before and I feared I was still contagious.

I was supposed to take it in to Jimmie’s shop Friday morning.  But because I’ve got to get up stupid early for a work trip to Amarillo Friday morning, I had to reschedule.  To the following Thursday, the soonest they can get me in now, because they’re so busy.  Grr.  I really hope something on my car doesn’t explode or fall off before then.
