I need new tires. The mechanic really didn't want to let me drive away after he rotated them. But I don't really have a choice. I have no money for tires right now. I have my registration renewal and Drive Clean emissions test coming up on my birthday so I'm taking my car in for servicing tomorrow. Hopefully that won't add more money to the VISA bill this month. Basically, I'm working to pay for the stinkin' car. I might ask my parents to buy me new tires for my birthday this year. They didn't do anything special last year so I don't feel so bad asking this year for something so important. In the meantime, I'll be on foot.

I emailed W and asked him to call me. I told him I was free for dinner on Friday and Saturday because A will be at wedding events both nights. For some reason, I woke up this morning not mad anymore and realized that I need to work on the way I deal with disappointment. It's the only feeling that continues to make me feel more frustrated than is necessary. I've learned to loosen my grip on most other aspects of my life so this should be easier too. I can't remember at what point in my life I became such a control freak.

Anyway, I think it's going to be leftover dim sum for dinner tonight.

I know the feeling. I just passed the e-check and renewed my registration but I need brakes badly. So, if your parents have any generosity left over, please ask them to send me a check.

I was worried about passing the drivers' license renewal, and even went so far as to get glasses for the first time in my life, but then passed the eye exam without needing them.

Operating a car is a bitch. I wish we had real public transportation in this state.

And what state would that be?

Have I mentioned that I'm a total sucker for a pair of glasses?
