so it would appear that my luck has run out

…and parking enforcement has finally caught up with me.


earlier this week, i had spent the entire day parked on campus WITHOUT a permit because i had moved it to my other car and then forgot to move it back. if i had noticed it in the morning, i could have just asked for a temporary permit, but i didn’t even realize it until the end of the day!! i always park head out (= more obvious if i don’t have a permit) and luckily, i didn’t get a ticket. %%-

later on, i went to go pick up some cupcakes, and parked my car in a metered lot. you’re supposed to note your space number, then pay for the space at an automated machine (that by the way takes credit card… gotta love beverly hills). stupid me, i put the wrong number and paid for someone else’s parking space. i realized when i got back to my car that the number on my receipt was not the same as the number of my parking space. #-o

so, after the laker game, we got back to the car and was greeted by a white envelope and slip timestamped 10:12p which was only a few minutes before we got there… and it wasn’t even for PARKING. it was because i don’t have a front license plate. UGH… REALLY?!?! X( unfortunately, i got my car from the dealer without a license plate mount on the front, and was not about to drill holes myself into my lexus. WTF is parking enforcement doing driving around at 10:00? :cens: meters stop running at 6:00. i guess the city is so hard up for cash that they have to LOOK for dumbest reasons to give tickets out.

N900 camera vs N82 camera

Tuesday, December 08, 2009 @ 01:55pm

i’m still trying to get used to my new phone/OS/etc. but i thought i’d try out the camera. the camera on the N82 was the main reason i loved the phone so much, but i’ve had it for over a year and a half which is longer than normal. “out with the old…” as they say. the top photo was taken with the N900; the bottom was taken with the N82.

just testing this out...

new office

the N900 really falls short as far as the camera is concerned… hoping the rest of the phone makes up for it.

i have lindsey!

Monday, December 07, 2009 @ 08:03am

(well, i will soon…)

this morning, temptation got the best of me and i hit BIN on a lindsey american girl doll.  i’ve been wanting one for a while, watching ebay, but it was always more than i was willing to pay.  this morning i found one in new condition (hair looks great, too), in her complete meet outfit (including the elusive red barette), for as good a price as i think i will ever find.  EXCITING!!

making a list…

Friday, November 27, 2009 @ 08:47am

so today is black friday. i have no plans of even leaving the house today (unless it’s something like going to the grocery store this afternoon to pick up a gallon of milk). for the most part we’ve decided what we’re getting everyone, and we’re doing most (if not all) of our shopping online. sitting in front of the computer while in my pajamas and sipping hot cocoa sure beats fighting over parking spaces and $4 sweats.

in celebration of the biggest shopping day of the year, i’m making my list of (random) things “i want for christmas”…

  • perfect brownie baking pan
  • box grater
  • rice krispies treats cereal, delivered twice a month :P
  • mandoline slicer that doesn’t suck
  • pau gasol away jersey (junior fit)

new toys!

Sunday, April 19, 2009 @ 08:31pm

so, while i was here at home splitting my time between throwing up :-& and trying to sleep off my pounding headache, jon ran some errands with the kids, and then came home with these for me:

my new toys

i’d been wanting damaged king for a while now but didn’t want to pay inflated prices at frank & sons. the other one, marco, jarron picked out for me and told jon i wanted (which i really did). :x

cars diecasts i wish mattel would make (or maybe they already have and i’m just completely clueless :-?? ):

  • ghostlight mater… there’s a ghostlight ramone – why isn’t there a ghostlight mater?? i imagine him with a frightened expression and of course the blue lantern hanging from his tow hook
  • damaged fabulous hudson hornet… like on the newspaper picture. :(
  • chick hicks fans mia & tia… they seem to have made every other mia & tia… except maybe for “car-hop” mia & tia, which i wouldn’t mind either.
  • dirt track doc hudson… or is there such a thing already? with dirt on the bottom and on the tires like the dirt track mcqueen has?

llama! emily as chrissa
somehow, i imagined the chrissa doll with the original face-mold, and not the josefina face-mold, so i’ve got emily playing chrissa here… LOVE the llama.
