Oh my gosh it is ironic that you should mention the lottery adn your car cuz I just bought a lotto ticket for the first time today!!! Don't usually play because i am one of those unlucky people that NEVER win ANYTHING. But I am so hard up on cash that I need $$ so I played. If I won a lot of money I would totally buy a whole bunch of those peta tickets and all of you would be my guests, We would all sit at the best table right next to Kim BAsinger, ALec baldiwn, Charlize Theron, Joaquin Pheonix, and other famous animal lovers!!! We would be royalty for one night!!! Then I would take us all to Cancun Mexico from there cuz I love cancun even though I almost drowned there.
And as far as cars, my mustang (nobody get excited - it is only a four banger) recently started dying. Something about a timing belt slipping and breaking a tooth, pistons, cylinders, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I have no clue about. Anyway, I took it to one mechanic who said that it was pretty much in need of a partial engine rebuild, which would cost upwards of $2000. Not worth it cuz my car is a 1993 with a black book value of probably not even a thousand. So luckily my dad's long lost cousin who is also a mechanic fixed it up for me for $850 just enough so I can get another year out of it - until I am done school for good.
I HATE spending money on car trouble. I want to have my cake and eat it too I guess - driving and not paying for it!!!
But my car has seen me through 13 good years with no major let downs so I cannot complain. She is a good girl. I call her Stella.
Stella wants to retire
- but I hope she can give me another year.
