Mood: frustrated
Music: Black Kids - Hit the Heartbrakes

We were just 45 minutes out of Chicago when we were hit by a car. It hit the right rear of the car, totally smashing the trunk. This was just feet behind me. Almost all of my worldly possessions were in that trunk. Although I've been rather achy since the accident, nobody was hurt. The car was (probably) totalled. Fortunately, nothing was destroyed. We were lucky. Of course, this kind of put a damper on my return home, and we need to go back to Indiana early tomorrow morning to return the rental car. I have to go because I'm the only person with any semblance of navigating skills in the family.

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to getting (and staying) the fuck out of Indiana.

In other news, I am the proud owner of a new, fairly inexpensive laptop (Lenovo IdeaPad). It's amazing. And beautiful. I think I may be forced to bear its children. Plus, the speakers are ridiculously amazing, which is always a plus. I mean, we're talking fucking amazing speakers here. I practically came in my boxers when I first turned these puppies on.

So, now that I'm actually able to see the screen without a flashlight - what's up? I haven't read my friends page in over a week and I'm not planning to go back through it. Summarize your week. Tell me all the dirty details. I'm curious, I'm bored, I'm in pain, and I'm in a really shitty mood, so make it funny... or else.

Thanks! Aww, I like being in a "good reads" filter. I don't have filters myself, but I always read your entries whenever I see 'em. :)

Aw, that sucks about your half brother! Hopefully he'll get up the guts to visit sooner or later. Where are you from - Florida, right? (I'm basing this on your LJ profile.) I've never really thought of that as the south (more like "that phallic symbol hanging off of Georgia" hahahaha) but hey, at least you got to experience the north! I'm in the opposite position of you - I've never experienced the south. Well, except for West Virginia. And one day in Kentucky, which really doesn't count. What was so different about the north? I like Pennsylvania quite a bit... well, okay, parts of Pennsylvania, and definitely NOT the highways. The drivers in that state are insane. But yeah, the differences between small towns and big cities are crazy. In the last few months I've spent significant amounts of time in towns ranging from 800 people to a few million... but variety is the spice of life. :)

My last two laptops (ugh, I have horrible luck with computers) had AWFUL speakers. This laptop seriously sounds like a stereo. And it shakes with the bass! Very hardcore, haha.

Yeah, I pick favorites, and I like your style. Haha.
I think my brother will come around sooner or later. I tried to put myself in his situation and I don't think I'd be ready yet either. I should have expected it, but I guess I was just too excited.
& Florida IS the south, hahah. The differences between here and PA were insane. Like not only the weather (in 24 hours there it was like all of Florida's seasons in one day, haha) but the people were different. I don't know how to explain that one, I just had a weird feeling. Maybe being in a small town was the difference since I'm a city person. The honor system thing was a huge shock to me. The mountains were beautiful. I've never seen mountains before last week. Seeing deer (I've never seen those either). I saw a sign that said I was 2000 ft above sea level. I couldn't believe it!!! Haha. My ears were popping while we drove down the road. It was just a totally new experience.

haha, very cool ;)

I know what you mean about the differences between small towns/cities - I grew up (around) Chicago, and I go to school in a small town... I know people who don't even lock their doors. The only crimes that ever happen are stolen bicycles. Oh, and I LOVE mountains. So much better than beaches (imho). And you've never seen a deer? Jeez... imagine if you'd seen a bear. :o!

Well, I'm glad you got to experience it... hopefully you'll go back one day :)
