Karma is ...

I swear I've been crafting, I swear. I just have no photographic evidence to share with you. But I still felt the need to blog a bit about life. And I guess when I say blog a bit, I mean bitch a lot. Because life, like karma,  has been a bitch this past week.

Last Wednesday I got a call from Curt's boss saying he wasn't feeling well and could I please pick him up... it was 6:30 in the morning and we live about 45 minutes from his work. So I talked to Curt to get the whole scoop. Seems he stretched and pulled a muscle in his neck. He couldn't move it and was in a lot of pain, but he decided to drive himself home. I ended up getting out of work so I could drive him around town to interview guitar players for the band later in the day. We did the same thing after my shift on Thursday.

I made fun of his lack of neck function the whole time. He had to turn his whole body to look to either side, and it was just too cute not to laugh about. Let it be known that I would not make fun of him if he was seriously injured, but I knew he would survive, so the jokes ensued.

Enter my neck injury.

Yesterday while driving to meet Curt and the rest of the band for rehearsal and errands, I was rear-ended. I was turning left {coincidentally onto the wrong street} when I heard screeching brakes behind me. I looked into the rearview mirror just in time to see a pick up truck swerving to the right to [try to] avoid me. *cRaSh* there goes my car. I was able to drive to a nearby parking lot to examine the damage. The truck's front end was smashed into the front left wheel so he was stuck there on the side of the road. Police were called and a very friendly Captain Hill of Berry Hill gave the guy a ticket and made sure I didn't need an ambulance.

Damn it all.

I've been successfully driving that car for 4 years and then some idiot comes out of no where, not paying attention, and totally wrecks it. Who knows what insurance will say, whether we will be able to have the car fixed or if we will need to buy a new one. {We really, really, can't buy a new car right now.} Thankfully the guy swerved, but he took out my back right side, rearranging the bumper and making the tail light disappear.

I now have limited use of my neck, looking right is just not a possibility. So thank you karma, for being such a pain in my neck. Pun intended, obviously.

In completely unrelated news ... The Hills has got me really worried. What if Spencer & Heidi actually do reproduce? The publicity stunts, the drama, the eventual demon spawn of Spencer... it's just too crazy. Almost as crazy as that Jayde girl Brody is doing - what is her problem?! That girl needs some serious medication. And how much work has she had done? Her face looks like the Barbie lady, and I'm sure she chose her cup size.
Also, I think it's funny they use Superchick music for the preview of next week's episode.

Tomorrow I go back to work lifting heavy trays to deliver endless soup and salad refills. Neck, don't fail me now.
