Workin' Girl

I got the job!!!!! I start April 11th.

Now I just need to right my letter of resignation at the church. It's bad timing since one of the youth pastors and a custodian (not the creepy one) just quit.

I woke up too late to shower and am really disgusting. After work I plan to run out to Khol's for some new gym shoes and then head out to the gym to test them out. Then shower off all this filth.

Today, I'm going to look on line at some more Mini Coopers (which I really can't afford unless I live at home for at least 6(?) more months), computers, and a cruise for next summer to take with Laura for her graduation from rock school.

Car/computer/cruise suggestions/advice are much appreciated. :)

    get a Mini, MM. Especially with gas as it is. You can look so cool tooling around in it.

    i looked and honda civics(?) actually get better gas milage. but minis keep their value really well, i looked at some 2002s and the price only goes down about $2,000. i though a few years generally drops the price (compared to a new car) a lot more. is that not true?

    i would look damn cool

    Check out Dell computers or Mac, depending on your preference. I beleive that both of them are supposed to be really good at helping you find the computer perfect for you. I also hear that Best Buy has some good deals.

    mac's scare me, but dell seems friendly. but i probably find everything with enough advertising "friendly"

    thanks! hopefully it will lead to an la trip in the not so far future :)

    CONGRATS GIRL! Glad to hear the good news. As for cars, you have permission to take my father car shopping. He may be the most thorough and unflappable car shopper in the history of time. Computers, I love my Dell laptop. Highly recommend it. Macs are great, a little pricier. Cruise... Go somewhere "rocky," right? Maybe one on of those that stops off around Mayan ruins? Or you could go to Alaska :). CONGRATS AGAIN!

    sarah- i'm going to link you whenever i get around to it

    j- maybe dad would come with me if i got him some lunch or something. my dad is in charge of car shopping in my family, so i guess i'll try him out first.

    a dell lap top is sounding good. macs seem to have some caompability problems and harder to find bootleg programs for, but maybe that's just my impression. i'm not used to them, so i wouldn't get one.

    the cruise will be to some place warm. you know eddie is taking an AK one this summer, right?

    I think you should skip the cruise, get the mini and a lap top- plan a road trip and research it on your new said possibly Dell laptop computer, pack up your hot new Mini and trek cross country.
    Yup. I don't know.. I am nuts today

    pink- that might be the best idea ever.

    but where would we go? does anyone want to go anywhere in a mini??
