I feel: numbnumb
I'm listening to: Death Cab For Cutie - Soul Meets Body

After 3 years of credit card debt, I finally paid it off! The funny thing is, it wasn't even planned. I was just saving my money lately, not really for any reason...it's just that I was working a lot so I didn't really have time to shop or go out.

Then one day, I looked at my bank account and thought "Why don't I just pay off my credit card?" And then, boom... all my credit card debt erased in one fell swoop.

I tell ya, I've never felt both relieved and awful at the same time in my life. Right before I clicked the little button that confirmed my payment to the credit card company (I used online banking), I looked away as I did it and asked my brother, who was sitting right there, if it happened.

"I don't wanna look....did I just do what I thought I did?"


"Well, if you would open your eyes then you'd see that I was nodding my head yes."

I LOVE Johnny Depp. I didn't think he would outdo his Jack Sparrow role from Pirates... but he does in this movie. Oh my god does he ever. What a brilliant performance.

So after the movie, we went to check out the Harry Potter craziness at Chapters. It was midnight so officially the book had just launched.

And holy crap, it was MAYHEM in there. The front doors were decorated and it said "Diagon Alley" on it. The walls were decorated with thunderbolts. There were people dressed up in Harry Potter gear. The Chapters staff were donned in black robes and Gryffindor scarfs. The lineup was RIDICULOUS. It started at the entrance, went around all the way to the other side, and then back again. Ash and I wanted to get a book on shooters, but we opted not to 'cuz we weren't in the mood to wait in line for an hour. Plus, we'd just look stupid 'cuz everyone in line was holding 1 or 2 (sometimes 3) copies of the Harry Potter book.

On the plus side, we got a free gift card (sorry...a "magic card") handed out by a Gryffindor person on the way out. =)

Okay so about 10 pm on the same day my car got hit, my dad and I went to the police station on Blair only to find out that that station was closed so we were told to goto a new station down on St. Joseph and Tenth Line. So back to Orleans we go, only to find out they close at 9 pm. Then we were told that the only police station that is open 24 hours is downtown on Elgin so downtown we go. Then we had to wait for another half-hour or so because the officer that was there was working on a big accident case so we had to wait until the next guy came in. So finally, I filled out a report and statement and we were done at around midnight!

So I get a call today from an officer saying that he called the driver that hit my car and both the father and daughter were being very billigerent and denying everything. Stupid dumb bitch. Now I might have to go to small claims court and get that spoiled bitch to pay up. There were 3 witnesses who saw her hit my car!!! Stupid, stupid, people. They think they're gonna get away with this. We'll see about that.

I was at work today, restocking our retail section, bored out of my mind.... when suddenly...

My manager: Oh my god Brenda!! Somebody just hit your car!!

Me: WHAT?!!

I quickly run over to the window to see.

My manager: That gray car that's pulling away just hit your car!

I ran out of the store, and chased after the car. Luckily, to exit Blockbuster you have to turn around again and wait at the trafiic lights, so I was able to cut across and yell at her while her window was down.


She was with her friends. She looks at me and then turns her head the other way, obviously ignoring me... and then drives off. I squinted my eyes trying to get a good look at the license plate but I couldn't see it without my glasses. So I make my way back to the store.

Guy who was repairing the store signs: Miss! Miss! We got the license plate. Here you go.

He hands me a card with the plate number on the back and then he gives me his business card.

Guy who was repairing the store signs: And if you need a witness, here is my card.

Me: Thank you so much.

My manager, at this point is now outside with me.

My manager: Wow this is so exciting! Sorry, I know your car got hit, but this is so exciting!!

So I was pretty lucky to have my manager watching the parking lot, so I can run out and scream like a maniac. And I was pretty lucky to have the nice sign guys take down the information for me.

A couple of hours later....

Co-worker: Do you guys hear that? That guy outside our parking lot was screaming really loud and he was like pulling that woman's hair and shoving her and stuff.

My manager and I go over to the window and sure enough, there's this guy who's screaming at the top of his lungs and hitting and shoving this woman. She's just sitting on the curb looking really upset. It seems they were searching for something because they kept scanning the ground. Must've been pretty damn important whatever it was because he was pissed off outta his mind and blaming it on the girl.

Me: Should we do something?

My manager: I dunno.... but this is really exciting!!

Suddenly out of NOWHERE, a cop car comes speeding into our parking lot. My manager looks at me:

My manager: Did you call the cops?

Me: No. You didn't?

My manager: No.

Suddenly, the oc transpo "cops"/security also comes speeding into our parking lot. I guess because there's a bus station right next to our store.

My manager: Ah, the fake cops are here.

So the guy is frisked and taken into the cop car while the other officers interrogate the woman.

My manager: It's really bad that we're just standing here watching.

Me: Yeah....

My manager: But I don't care! This is exciting!

So then another police cruiser pulls in.

My manager: Oh, look there's another one coming.

Me: Hmmm....... backup?

My manager: For this?

Me: Y'know, while the police are here.... you think they'll run a license plate check for me?

At this point my shift had ended so I just went home. With my dented car.

Needless to say.... it was an "exciting day".
