The time machine

I know how to go back in time. It's easy. Just sell or put into storage everything you have, leave the country for many moons and come back with $0. Follow these simple steps and you too can feel like you're 16 again!

I've been living at home with my parents without a vehicle. This means that I often have to ask to borrow the car or get a ride. Poof! 16, like magic!

Today, though, all that is a thing of the past. Today I bought my freedom (and a car) !!!


His name is The Dusty Detective!

I bought him from a mechanic that works for the city police and bought the car off them. Which means that it's only been used for detectives to ride around in solving crimes. I'm like 1 degree of separation away from Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars!

Awesome!

This is also a good example of putting what you want out in the world. Only last week I mentioned to my uncle, the car genius, that I was really getting ready to buy a car. And then he found this one in great shape and for a reasonable price. Next up, universe, I'd like to have slightly less of a sugar belly and, more importantly, a lovely apartment for the Gentleman Caller and I. Ok? GO!

Woohoo!! I hated being in my twenties and needing to ask my parents for a car. We were so close to me being in my 30s and having to ask our parents for a car when ours died earlier. Does it still count as asking your parents for a car, if they were the ones giving you the loan? Oh well.
Good luck with the apartment hunt! We know a couple in Regina who are looking and finding very little. As much as Boardwalk is the evil corporate option, I was reasonably satisfied with them while we were there.
