Adjusting to life in Maryland is not the smoothest piece of work I’ve ever sunk myself in to. The issues with in-laws are sorting themselves out. I’ve had a few job interviews. Things are proceeding apace.

Yeah, that’s right: Dead. Apparently it needs a new engine. Well fine then…I guess I’ll just take that $5000 we had saved away and…oh yeah, that’s right. We don’t HAVE $5000 dollars. Fucking fuck. Well, thank goodness the warranty is…hmmmm? Excuse me? Did you just say that the warrany is actually void becaussssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss…………….
