Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
Yesterday when I got home from work my landlord’s truck was blocking the sole entrance to our underground parking lot. I didn’ t care. He was guiding workmen in prepping one of his units for rent. I parked up the street.
Today I had a later shift, so I walked out into the afternoon to start my car. And there. Under the windshield wiper. Wrapped in a plastic baggy. A ticket.
A parking ticket for $41 for parking up the street from my garage. I know that on the other side of the street, the street sweeping takes place on the first Monday of the month, but I neglected to recognize that on my side of the street, the street sweeping takes place on the first Tuesday of the month. And of course, the meter maid would be making his or her rounds while I’m happily taking care of business inside my apartment, when I could have gone out pretty much at any time to move my car.
Le boo, le sigh.
On the plus side, today happened to be Freebie Tuesday! Y’know that ShopSeen Aritzia contest I blogged about? So basically, I won it. Because I am like a pig to truffles when it comes to finding compelling content. Freals. Hire me! Now I can buy one-seventh of the jeans I wanted! Yippee!
I just got a new Speck Fitted case for my iPod Touch that looks super slick. Yay diagonal pinstripes! It also fits much better with my Power Supply Anti-Glare Film than the Speck SeeThru. Okay, </nerd>
(I don’t know why I have all that ribbon on my nightstand, either.)
