@annecara I've always felt a little bad for Draco (ok not ALWAYS). He grew up in a household that promoted the evils of Voldemort, but he is a bit of a wimp at heart. Seriously where would he be without henchmen? Draco just always struck me as pulled in a lot of different directions without a really strong sense of self.
@andnowlights I called! They will get back to me about an appointment.
@LookUponMyWorks The suck up approach? I don't hate it!
Great Philly weekend that was on budget expect for gas money, which I perpetually under estimate. Friday: Had already spent $13 on booze and was off work. I rode, ran and did yoga before hitting the road. Spent $30 on gas. Got to Philly and my friend and I drove to the art museum to hit up a beer garden. $6 on a cheese steak, $6 on beer. Then we went home to drink wine and watch 'For a Good Time, Call', which was fairly amusing. Saturday we drove into center city and saw The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, City Hall, and the LOVE statue. Spent $9 on souvlaki and a donut at Reading Terminal market. Got a $26 parking ticket that I plan to contest (taking suggestions on how to tell a sob story on why I parked longer than 2 hours...). Free tour and samples at Yards brewery. We split up and I went to another friends house and basically had a big college friends reunion. Spent $8 on pizza. Sunday I spent $7 at Dunkin and $30 on gas, but it was cheaper than my area, so all ok. I spent $60 on gas, $50 on food and drink, possibly $26 on this ticket. And I have decided to call my local Plasma center TODAY so non of this kills my truck budget!
@PicNic I think we can officially call your roommate a brat.
@andnowlights SOMETIMES I THINK SO
@ATF I really hope everything works out and the girls can move in somewhere safe and clean! Good on you for your support.
@ThatJenn That is awesome that you have a turtle! I spent a few years of my childhood in Africa and we had two pet turtles adopted my school grounds who lived in a similar pen. They were little tykes, but if they are still alive today they'd be 100 lbs and big enough for a child to sit on.
I am leaving ASAP for Philly!! On the way I will stop at Kohl's since I have a $10 gift card, and hopefully not spend more than that (I really just want a bigger cooking pot). I have already purchased $13 additional booze for the weekend, so hopefully keeping my food with friends, transportation and other costs under $40! And inevitably spending $30 on gas as well. Avoiding the toll roads through so that'll save me a couple dollars.
@PicNic Do not feel bad! I would get the hell out of that car too and report it.
