When it rains – it pours*

* Money out of your account in order to buy tires and a new dryer.  I guess with the 70k mi. milestone under my belt it’s only fair that I buy a couple of new tires.  Oh, and the dryer stopped spinning and making wet clothes dry last night. 

It’s now official.  Dryers are cheaper to replace than fix.  If you have ever run out of ink in your printer, you know what I’m talking about.  Just like printer cartridges cost $35 each (B/W & Color) and you can buy a new printer (with included ink) for $50 or 60.  Likewise, you can buy a new dryer for $200 instead of sticking in $397 in parts to fix the stupid one you got.

Go figure.

70,000

Well- the Civic hit 70,000 miles yesterday.  And they’re all mine!  These are the most miles I’ve ever put on one car.

If I had prepared this better, I would have had some factoids about how far 70,000 miles is and given some examples of stuff like ‘how many times around the Earth I could have traveled’.  Stuff like that.

But I didn’t prepare.  Sorry about that.

Blog renamed

I’ve renamed this blog.  This service was initially launched in Japan for testing.  That didn’t stop me from setting up this blog- I just couldn’t read any of the screen so I didn’t know what to click to post new messages and the like.  Now that it’s available here in America I’ve changed the name from "I Can’t Read This" to "Jason’s Tiki-Lounge".  With that, my blogger site will go inactive (not that it was ‘active’ by any stretch of the imagination).  I understand there may be some interaction between this site and MSN Messenger version 7.  That’s still rumor I think.  At any rate, this is my new official blog.

MSN Spaces is up!

And most importantly, it’s in English.  Which means I can read what I type.

(This has been available in Japan for a few months.  I created one on that server but couldn’t read the crazy talk they do over there in Japandia.)

More on MSN blogging later.
