My week: good and bad
The good: Obama!
The bad: My computer died Wednesday night– I am borrowing time on BT’s computer right now. We will have to buy a new one for the house. Until then, no pictures! Sorry.
Thursday I had kind of a crappy day at work, which started with me walking around with the zipper down on my skirt for who-knows-how-long. Then I went out for a fun night at First Thursday and ended up with a jaywalking ticket. YES, that’s right. I’m vacillating over whether to contest it or just pay the darned thing– I don’t really have time to go to court, but I am reluctant to hand over the ONE-HUNDRED FIFTY-THREE DOLLAR fine to the City of Austin. I am particularly upset considering my first experience with Austin cops, which was my car accident in 2001. Not only did the officer (just one officer, note) fail to test the other driver’s alcohol level (which, I’m guessing, would have sent her to jail), but they didn’t even write her a ticket for crossing the median on I-35 and hitting someone going the opposite direction. I had to write APD a letter asking them to send her a ticket. Now, I walk across a street 10 feet from the crosswalk and end up with FOUR OFFICERS stopping two of us and handing out $153 tickets? Not cool.
