Looks like my car needs a new engine. Sheesh. May be driving a new (to me) car by next week. Perhaps a Hyundai. Hmm. Boooring.

Haven’t heard any good news about jobs lately. Hmmph. Am applying for a promotion at B&N, but don’t hold out much hope. Apparently, everyone in the department is applying for it, and I’m the newest one there. So it doesn’t look good. But if I did get it, I’d at least make sort of enough money to last for a little while. Perhaps even enough to give cheap Christmas presents to my nearest and dearest. I hope.
