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.

damn! glad that you are okay AND everyone else AND your stuff made it out all right. the car being totalled does suck though- in hindsight, that really isn't too bad. but scary as fuck- I am personally terrified of accidents and every time I travel that fear is hanging over every aspect. feel better, though!

and do you have the Black Kids album? is it good? I may buy it tomorrow, that's why I ask!

thanks! yeah, I'm really glad everyone's okay and none of my stuff was destroyed - although my printer was literally inches away from being destroyed. If it had been just a couple inches over, it would've been smashed to pieces. I honestly don't know if the accident made me MORE interested in getting a license or LESS interested. More interested because, fuck, I KNOW I'm a better driver than my father. Less interested because, fuck, I don't want to get in an accident!

I actually just bought the Black Kids album 30 minutes ago. I've been listening to 5 out of the 10 songs on repeat for the last three months. I love them. I'd recommend buying it if you get the chance. :)
