but anyway! so car. i don't particularly want to get another car. i mean, i do and i don't. they are sure convenient sometimes, and i sure am lazy sometimes, and it would allow for things like spontaneous friend visits. on the other hand, they're fuckin expensive and a pain to maintain and pollute and etc and i can just take the bus where i want to go 90% of the time. i wish zipcar weren't so facemeltingly overpriced, because that is otherwise a pretty excellent model. and it's certainly a plus to not have to go job hunting (tho i would have to go car hunting instead). and going out to buy a car, even a cheap shitty one, for a job that pays around 10k/yr might be a tactical error.
oh well, i guess i should wait to see if anything actually comes of this before i give it much worry.
on the plus side of jobbity, i finally have insurance again, after being without for about a year and a half. which is good since my prescription ran out like a month and a half ago and my dr wouldn't rewrite it without giving me a physical. which, why the hell is that? i mean, i can see her encouraging more checkups but i don't see what meds have to do with it. i looked at the drug factsheet thing, and it seems like the only side effects that would show up in a physical are dire enough that i will damn well notice them myself. but whatev, i have it again now and that is good. i was getting pretty miserable. i forget, when i am medicated and doing better, what a difference it's actually making. it's not just like i get sadder otherwise, or sad more often, or whatever. it's enveloping. i can't think right and i feel like i have this weight in my stomach. it exacerbates all my worst qualities.
meanwhile, bach is in a tizzy. i won't get into it because i'm sick of talking about it, but basically we have a major cash shortage. how can a corp that has $1.5 million in property have trouble with a phone bill? money is fuckin weird. but yeah, here is a halfway accurate but kind of contextless article on the situation. bach is not in mortal danger, we're not going to close up shop, but this could become a fuckin lot of mess. my current feel of the situation is we are likely to sell one of the houses and buy 2 on the west side. not because of this, per se; this kind of spurred us into taking more seriously things we'd been discussing/looking at/planning for a long time. but i really have no idea how things will develop, esp in the short term.
of course, considering all the economic news, we've done about as well a job of running this place as the professional educated managers of billion dollar multinationals and government finance ministers. so hey, good for us.
okay, here's another article about the co-ops, which i mostly recommend for the fantastic opening paragraph. apparently we are a very important subject lately. wolf blitzer should interview us.
i am sick of typing this, and jamie is on the way over, so let me just end by saying credo sucks and i want to go back to t-mobile, and that flickr still hasn't responded to me, so they can go fuck themselves. i'm migrating my onliney photos to facebook. my only major complaint with facebook photo-ing is the same as my main facebook complaint in general: it's too locked down. i don't want only members in my network to see my profile! i want anyone who is looking for me to see it, regardless of where they live or if they have a facebook of their own. i mean, it's swell that they give the options of more security for people who want them, but let me turn the damn watchdogs off.
