"I don't know who this anonymous guy was, but he sure said a lot!"

It sure is easy to shoot off a bitchy comment and hide behind that great big guy, Anonymous. And cowardly, not to mention mean. Yes, its so easy to be mean when you don't have to suffer the consequences. No, maybe not suffer the's just easier to be mean.

When I'm mean, at least I put my signature on it.

'Nuff said.

I don't have much to say. I'm in a funk. I wish I were a hack who had to write for a living. Then I would just shrug off the doldrums and do my job!!

I don't feel it.

I bought a car this week. It was a big deal because in the mid-nineteen nineties I was laid off and my hard earned credit rating took a nose dive. I contemplated declaring bankruptcy, but one of my buddies poo-pooed the idea telling me I did not owe enough. Yet, it was enough to ruin me. I have been clawing and fighting back for a long time. Paying this debt off, then that one. I took on my whole student loan (which those bastards claimed I defaulted, took all my payments for nearly five years, added a 25% total loan value penalty and said PAY ME!!) and paid it off in three years. Then I tackled some other things...too morbid and boring to re-tell, but it was hell working with third party collectors.

I only have myself to blame.

So, imagine my surprise, pleasant surprise when I bought a brand new car (my down payment may have helped) and got a loan...easy, good rate. (And nearly nine years with the same company didn't hurt.)

Sorry to hear some twit is twatting. Unwanted comments are why I went to comment moderation, plus the fact I couldn't figure out how to delete the darn things. Don't give them any energy though. Many of those anonymous types just want the drama.

Do you have sitemeter, site tracking up? Sometimes you can get a little info from that... not that it matters...

So...tell us about the new car! Is it a Mazda Miata or something similarly midlife-crisis? :D
