i haven't heard back from amy about the warehouse space in oakland. i don't think i got it... which is a severe bummer, i got myself seriously hyped about that place. but i've found an in-law cottage for rent in hayward for $900/mo with a $600 deposit- looks promising enough. i'm gonna try and go see it on sunday.
while i *do* like the idea of an inlaw cottage... one space, and it's all mine, and no connecting walls so i can be a little more liberal with music volume without bothering anyone... i dunno. as much of a pain in the ass as roommates in general can be (and no, i'm not thinking about the 6408 crowd here, so chill guys ;), i wonder how healthy it will be for me to live somewhere like this... where there won't always be someone for me to talk to around... but now that i think about it, i don't really tend to share how i'm feeling that much anyway, do i? i guess the thing that i found the most comfortable about 6408 was just that there were people *there*. i guess that's probably strange, but i don't think it's bad to have friends as a security blanket.
the deposit check has arrived, and i'm getting a little over $700 from it- nice to know my guesstimate was pretty close. i *finally* got an email back from the guy who wants my mkIV-look lights as well- i'm trying to arrange to meet up with him on sunday before i go look at the hayward cottage. so between that and my next paycheck (which i don't have to worry about rent from), i should have about $2500... i'm gonna *need* to put at least $1500 of that into a new savings account, or i know i'm gonna blow it all. my VR6 needs new brakes, and i still need the sentra towed and re-keyed and i still need a new timing belt and wheel bearings on the 16v (and i might as well do the front brake upgrade on that as well, since otherwise i'd be paying for the same labor/parts twice).
and finally, FUCK UPS. their drivers are IDIOTS. the guy who has my tires has been trying to deliver them, apparently to the wrong address, two days in a row. i just called UPS and apparently he tried to re-deliver this morning and had the same result... no such person at address. OBVIOUSLY the guy had the wrong address the fucking FIRST time... did he think i was gonna magically appear there the next morning? WHAT THE FUCK! i'm getting *really* sick of driving around on nearly-bald fucking tires. so if you're a UPS driver and reading this, USE SOME COMMON FUCKING SENSE, monkeyboy.
