Boo, hoo, my life is so hard...

I had intended to hit the road running on the blogging front today, and to do lots of horror movie reviews this month in honor of Halloween.

However, this morning I went out and my car was absolutely dead. Didn't turn over, or anything. This after a battery of recent car repairs, and my leaky roof finally in the process of getting fixed this week. I was pretty much busted before this latest problem, so now I get to go into actual debt getting my car fixed, again.

So when I eventually wend my way home tonight, presumably via some kind soul here at work, I'll have to call AAA and get my car towed in to my garage, and take it from there.

Anyway, I feel sort of morose at the moment, and if there is a temporary decline (like that doesn't happen anyway) in my blogging, that's why. Hopefully in a few days my spirits will be back up again.

What a wimp. God forfend my life ever really takes a turn for the worse.

Your post is still Halloween-ish. It features death and sorrow, and what could be more horrible than that?

In Danse Macabre (a book he should definately write a sequel too), Stephen King talks of the original Amityville Horror as basically a terrific horror film in economic terms, preying on the financial fears of the fiscally unstable lower middle class. He argues (as I remember) that the pivotal scare scene of the movie is the House disappears the family's down-payment money.

I'm starting to get way too good a grasp of what he was talking about.

Sorry to hear about the recent troubles, hope things get better for you.

Actually, the money from Amittyville was to pay for a wedding caterer, but the principle is the same: you need it, now, and it suddenly isn't there.

There you go. I probably should have hunted down a copy of the book before I commented on it, although the purpose of the money doesn't really matter much.

Car repairs will be slightly under $200, at least, so it's not good, but it could have been worse. (Of course, they also found another $300 job that they suggest I take care of soon...)
