So I spent several thousand dollars picking up the car from the garage yesterday, and boy was it worth it. Runs like a champion, and I had been considering looking for a “new” used car later on in the year, finances allowing, and the guy told me that would be stupid because I can get several more years of quality driving out of my car. That’s great news, because I love how it rides. Love my Subaru.
At any rate, went to the garage this morning, started the car to go to the post office, and… the garage door apparently died.
I just said to hell with it, went back upstairs, and went back to bed. This basically sums up 2010 in a nutshell for me. Started with a broken shoulder that disabled me for months, went into a series of appliance and computer failures, followed by multiple deaths of friends and family, a car failure, and now this. 2011 can’t get here soon enough.
I’ve also grown concerned that this is what getting old is all about. You spend the rest of your life discovering new pains, rehabilitating or replacing body parts and things on you house and car, burying friends and family, and building grievances until you say fuck it all and just die.

In the positive category, I can state that my penis was not amputated because of a medical error. So I got that going for me.
