Don't touch me, I'm cursed.

I left my apartment 7:35 and walked one block to my car.

It's 11:40 and I just got home.

Mind you, as you could read from lolitasir's post in this very journal, I haven't actually gone anywhere in that time.

It looks like either the starter broke, or I have a short somewhere. I'll know more tomorrow, once I call the mechanic where they towed my car.

I wanted to tell you all these funny stories about my 3 hours one block away, like how I discovered that Dominoes will in fact deliver to your car.

But I can't because I got home and attempted to turn on my air conditioner.

Which just broke.

I'm gonna go kill myself now, thanks.

Edit: Aaaaannnnd I just found a dead mouse underneath my air conditioner.

OMG, maybe it's a Donnie Darko type thing. The tree was supposed to fall on the van, but didn't. And now all kinds of weird shit is going to happen until the timeline is set right.

I totally think the trees are Ents, and they are conspiring to destroy my car one way or another. They missed with the falling branch, so they broke in and broke my starter. I wonder what's next...

Well.... if you need to vent some frustration on a tree. I'm always available.

A broken air conditioner in NYC in the middle of summer is so not funny. I'm sorry. :-(

I am impressed that you had the guts to touch your computer after your track record with technology today! (j/k) I hope that things start looking up for you.

Burn some sage, call a priest, buy some holy water, get a live chicken, find the pinky bone of a Catholic Saint, silver, white oak, garlic, a crucifix, a star of David and an Ankh.

And for heaven's sake - DON'T TOUCH NOTHIN!

I'm sorry to hear about the day. Perhaps you could fire this day as well!

I'll think happy thoughts for low repair costs and good luck with the A/C

As a note: Cursed or not, I'd touch you anyway. :-)

Sorry about your van :(

Fuck the mouse. I'm a former exterminator. I see another one, I'm going into slaughter mode.

You have my sympathies. I just got my car back from the mechanic where I'm certain the six million dollar man could have been repaired for less.

Well, you have your 3 knocked out so it can only get better, right?

Wishing you an excellent outlet for your frustration... well, after you've moved past your run of breaking things. ;)

Perhaps the mouse broke the car and the a/c and then killed itself out of remorse....

Or it's just genetic and you should be used to it by now. You knwo, if it weren't for bad luck and all?

Seriously, I hope today is better for you and things improve.
Hugs,
your loving auntie

tell me when your own personal Mercury in Retrograde is all over.

I scare you? You don't know how nervous I was when I woke up this morning!

I once had an apartment AC unit die b/c of a dead gecko. Ants were feeding on the gecko, and had covered all the important connectors.

Hope yours is just as easily fixed!

Box that energy

Man, it's not your week.

I'm definitely on board with the Donnie Darko theory.

It probably won't help if I tell you that bad things tend to happen in threes, huh?

I'm hoping the dead mouse is the 3rd. 'Cause if it isn't, I'm in trouble.

I hope it all gets straightened out. At least you have fun times coming up!
