one more chapter in life closed

so, I finally paid some guy to tow away the old Mazda. trusty rusty is out of my driveway now. sniff… I think I hear Taps playing… (sobs) she was a good car… but now she’s gonna be pepsi cans!

and on that note, off in my new car to the winter school in St.-Emile-de-Suffolk. à tantôt tous les amis!

carstairs carruthers

blah car garbage. I gotta sell my old car to get it out of the driveway, and get the license plates on the new one changed. what the. grumble grumblesmurf.


woohoo I have a car! I have a car! I have a car! I have a car! I have a car! I have a car! I have a car! I have a car! I have a car!

nice tings

tomorrow the car comes, unless something wack happens like it gets hit by a meteorite. I also have to get up before 10 AM because that’s when the 19-day feast is scheduled. 😛 er, I mean 🙂


hey, the community had a really phat meeting with the Quebec Bahá’í Council tonight. It was really positive with lots of great energy and encouragement. I sense a lot of good things are going to come in the months ahead. And OH MY GOD! The phattest of the phat news! Someone new just declared her faith in Bahá’u’lláh this week in Drummondville. And she’s cool, too. I met her. She’s a youth, I think about my age, and she’s a friend of one of the Bahá’í youth in the town. Cool cool cool cool 🙂 Now that brings up the number of Bahá’ís in Drummondville to… 6 I think? 6 is a GOOD NUMBER because it’s only 3 away from 9 🙂 That brings it a little closer to home, when someone you’ve met becomes Bahá’í, because you can tell when a person is open and searching for the message of Bahá’u’lláh, and you know you want that person to get connected, you just wonder how it’ll come about. This person met and talked to a lot of Bahá’ís the one time I saw her, and it must have had an effect. Man. Good stuff… I’m happy. Drummondville is doing good stuff. I want to work with them more. That reminds me, I have some emails to do.

Anyway, I’m having some toast and going to bed. g’night. Hey, where am I supposed to get cheap halloween candy? anybody know? I checked at the local pharmacy and it wasn’t quite as rebated as I thought it would be. You’d think it’d be pretty cheap after Halloween. anyway, peace out. peace. peace out. take it easy. peace out. hi there. bye there. peace out.

cars cars cars cars

well, miracles of miracles, I have car insurance… now all I need is a car. That’s due for delivery sunday. 😉

what the hey. that was fairly easy. now all I need is to get myself another job so I can start actually making more money than I dish out. ohhhhhhh well. I’ll keep an eye out in the papers. maybe I should start my own business or something.

man. I need ice cream. but all the stores are about to close! 🙁 sad

hey, I think this has been the scariest Halloween I’ve ever had… spending all day talking to insurance salesmen… brrr.

my car’s dead!

ok, so technically it’s not dead. and technically it’s not my car either. it’s actually my dad’s car, but he was letting me use it. unfortunately, I took it in for an inspection (so that I could change the Ontario license plates to spiffy Quebec plates), and it got a big fat REFUSED. too many defects. Apparently the repairs would take many hundreds of dollars. Like the several hundred dollars before that… and the several hundred before that… and the… you get the point. it was just time to put my foot down, and not on the gas.

so, as of 11h15 tomorrow morning, I’m not allowed to drive that car. sad, but oh well. it’s lived its life and done me a lot of good, and for that I’m grateful. thanks, car. heheh. I decided to call it trusty rusty. coz it’s got 389400 km of mileage on it and boy is it rusty!

anyway, apparently my sister is okay with letting me use her car instead, since it’s just sitting in my parents’ driveway right now gathering dust (and snow). It’s a 1997 Saturn SL1. I think it has a CD player, too. OMG. Luxury. What the! I guess I got too used to the tape player that mangles and never plays anything, and the radio with the messed-up display.

et mille mercis à tous ceux qui ont déjà répondu à mon appel pour de l’aide avec l’assurance-auto! je crois que je comprends un peu mieux les démarches à suivre maintenant.

all that’s left now is to get insurance for the car and my parents have said they’re ready to bring it up on the weekend. How cool is that! I love my parents. Big ups. 🙂
