Year End Bad Karma Clearance

[ #9689 ]

Bad things that have happened on this holiday:

  • Left house keys at the last place we stayed.
  • Pulled over by cops when we almost turned the wrong way onto a one-way street. Since we were not drunk, they let us go.
  • Pulled over by cops for making an illegal U-turn. Since we were not drunk they let us go.
  • Locked keys in car.
  • Waiting for tow truck to take car with brand new but defective clutch to nearest dealer---over an hour away.
  • Very bad muscle strain in shoulder from recurring sports injury.
  • Florida National Guard mobilizes. The list of available units is getting short.
  • Bailed on Lord of the Rings after seeing a very long line to get in. We bought tickets earlier, but were not expecting people to camp out to see it. There is not much else to do here though.
  • I lost every game of hearts tonight.
  • My partner's computer needed an OS re-install (although her brother is an Apple dude with a couple of iPods just for that reason).
  • I cannot get GD to install correctly.

Still, no one was shooting at me, no one was bleeding, and I was not wet, cold, tired, hungry, or sleeping in mud. Any day I can walk away from is a good day.
