    That's fair. Hopefully I won't be there that long to see.

    Oh... So get this. I found a new place... It's similar to the setup I was just at - four bedroom house rented out to four people. (All guys both before and now). I was just moving some stuff to my room and I was talking to the other guy in the 2nd BR upstairs. (Other two guys are downstairs) So he goes - I don't know if you noticed but there aren't any vents up here on the 2nd floor for heat. (Window unit AC, which that I knew, and while I'm sick to death of window units, it's whatever.) So the 2nd floor doesn't have heat. Not sure how I feel about that. Electric is included in the rent... And I have a room heater thing that works crazy well, but I don't sleep with it on. On the flip side, my plan is just to be here until the fall, but I'm not gonna kid myself and not think even the best laid plans get pushed around. I just keep thinking that the lower rent will allow me to make the move I wanna make in the fall then if I'm paying twice as much for a nicer place now. (Which I don't care how nice it is - it's not my Endgame sorta speak) I wonder what the legalities are of renting space that isn't heated. /Vent

    I can verify that. People are super rude up here... Which I dunno... Maybe everyone just hated their life because it sucks up here... Rinse and repeat. I'd love to live in a small town where everyone knows your name. Just hard to make a living in places like that. (I'd imagine)

    Just went to D&D for a bagel and some guy was standing outside... Looked maybe 25.. he asked if I could get him something to eat. Life kindof sucks right now, and I can totally relate, so I got him what he wanted. I am much more inclined to do something like that - food or drink - then to give money. Granted, they could then take the money and buy food, but I know people also do that as a way to make money. Faking being homeless/poor. Good deed for the day. [emoji106]

    Nope, nothing yet. A friend is going on vacation tomorrow so I'm going to borrow his car the week. Next weekend I have a camping trip scheduled and I'm going to get a ride there... So at least for the next 10 days or so I'm good. It's the little things. [emoji23]

    It takes Pluto 248 years to make one orbit around the sun. It hasn't even made a complete orbit since it was discovered. #funfactoftheday

    I agree with that... That being said, i can see the advantage of having one for emergencies. I don't, but wouldn't mind having one tbh.

    It's insane how much money banks make off fees.

    I remember when you didn't get charged to use an ATM machine... Those were the days. Lol My bank is actually pretty good. As long as I don't bounce a check, I have no fees. My debit card will not work if I have no money in my account, so no over draft fees. A $3 snack won't turn into an extra $25 for going into a negative balance... It just declines the purchase. I still don't like the industry as a whole though. I also don't like waiting on contractors to pay invoices. I'm going to start adding extra to my bids, because, I'm not a bank. Lol

    I think it's stupid. Banks around here also charge to cash a check if you don't have an account. So if you write me a check, and I go to your bank to cash it, I have to pay.. $5-$7 is average here. Banks are the biggest rip offs in the world.

    I was kindof leaning towards Honda.. I've never had one but a friend of mine did and it served him well. My mom's and sister's cats like to drink out of the fish bowl. For some reason I find it funny. Lol Between my mom and my sister there are 4 cats... I'm certain of at least two of them doing it... Not sure of the other two. But... They have food and water bowls... Maybe the fish taste is appealing to them??? [emoji38]2

    So if I'm going to be looking for a new used car - the past few have been trucks... So if anyone has some ideas of a decent but something that should be inexpensive, car to suggest I'd appreciate it. I drive a ton doing estimates all over the area so I need it to be sonewhat dependable but I only need it for this summer until I get more jobs, have more money, and can get something better. Thx

    I have the 3.0 engine in the truck. Just went by the shop... They are going to price out a used engine... It is running rough... Which it started doing last weekend... I changed the plugs and it ran tons better... But maybe that was just masking the issue?? Another day in Paradise. Lol
