Mar. 25th, 2003 @ 12:11 am All hail the Subaru!

Friday afternoon, golfball sized hail. The 2003 Forester has an aluminum alloy roof to save weight, which is a good idea. However, it makes particularly nasty deep hailstone prints on the hood. Yeah, the roof's a little bit dented too, but they're much smaller, I can't normally see the roof, and the sunroof takes up enough of the roof that it's not bad at all. So now we settle with the insurance company and figure out what to repair (my gut feeling is to just replace the hood--it's should be cheap (just the part and some labor, and live with the other dents) and how much we'll get.

It's so sad though, the new car, dented. What can you do? Maybe I shouldn't care. I just read Nickel and Dimed: on (Not) Getting By in America by Barbara Ehrenreich, which is a stunning book on how the minimum wage is a sham and poor people really get shafted. So dents in my car don't really matter.

Also, obviously, some people in the world have much more to worry about than their new car getting dented.

So forget I even posted about this.

Hey Uncle Mike, it's your nephew, Mike. Feel free to read my LiveJournal if you feel so inclined, or my DeadJournal too. It's not really interesting, and I don't even post anymore. If you read anything objectionable, it's part of growing up. And don't tell my dad incase he hasn't already found out...if there's anything in there that I shouldn't be doing, trust me, I don't do it anymore. I had my moments, (first semester, senior year), but I walked away with a 3.5 so I'd say I'm doing pretty good. I still haven't taken the ACT and I have no idea what I'm doing with my life after the next few months are over.

Just curious

How'd ya find me? I mean, it's no secret, but I'm wondering how you stumbled upon it.

Take the ACT. Just do it. I don't care if you go to college or not, just don't shut out your options. I think you should go to college and you'd get something out of it, or cooking school. If you want to make pizza all your life, then go ahead, just do it better than everyone else.

Anyway, I won't tell if you dont.
