Just a Spot of Bad Luck

Boy when it rains it pours. Lets take it from the top. It all started right before a trip to Catalina on my dad's boat. Purely pleasure for me and semi-vacation for Mrs. TV. She had to work on a school project during our trip but that wasn't the problem. She need access to the internet while on the island. My laptop's internal wireless just stopped working all of a sudden. After getting reassurance that his laptop works my car burns up. What I get from the mechanic is that a couple of things broke at the same time so there was no warning that my car severely overheated. So the engine fried. I had to pay for a new engine for a 2005 Mitsubishi Galant.

Pause on the bad stuff: It was a great trip to Catalina, the seas were ok on the way over. We hiked, swam, and drank at the Isthmus (Two Harbors).

Play: We got back from Catalina and my car is finished. I start in for work and guess what...the radiator splits. So now I have to shovel out for a new radiator (same car). Next my desktop starts acting up, and by acting up, I mean the "Blue Screen of Death."


Finally my lawn mower breaks down. Not that I even like doing the lawns but now my equipment won't work.

I need to meditate...uuummmmm ummmmm ummmmm. It's not working.

Car repairs suck! The Tri Gods are obviously conspiring to get you to get on your bike and ride.
