My life.... So much YAYness!

So week before last, I was out to get a hamburger because I had no protein in the house and the doctor said PROTEIN, BITCH! As I toodled along, trying to be all bouncy and shite, this oncoming car crossed over the line. I swerved to miss it. It kept on going. I popped onto the shoulder and lost control of the car. I spun out like Vin Diesel on crack. I hit a tree.

I had made one payment on this car.

One.

ONE.

And it is totalled. And I may have a hairline fracture in a rib, though it's probably just bruising.

Nationwide is paying off the whole loan, or at least most of it. I'm hoping that Carmax will let me take any spillage there might be and add it to a different vehicle. This means my payment will go up and I'll probably lose my TV, but I rarely watch it anyway. If I need noise, I've got movies to keep me warm.

I'm trying to be positive about all this.

But with the cycles of grief that keep bombarding me, along with the fantabulous bout of luck I've been enjoying now for months, it's really rather difficult.

So, in about two weeks' time, I've lost my computer and my car. Next the house will burn down and I'll be struck by lightning.

That last bit is good luck.

Nooooooooo! That's ridiculous. Poor old you - that's way too much bad luck for one person.
I was thinking as much, but I really don't want to come across as navel-gazing. If I do start navel-gazing, I think I deserve a little bit of slack for it. haha

Oh Dear!

Isn't there some form of insurance, I mean, if that was not you causing the accident?

Bruises will heal, the main thing is that you are still walking...

Hoping that all will sort out in the end.

Best of wishes from over here.

Re: My life...
If the other car had stopped and the driver owned up to their gaffe, yeah, their insurance would cover it. But, as it stands, it is essentially a one car accident, which means I am liable. The policeman who came to the scene totally believed me when I told him what had happened. He said it happens more than I may realise. *sigh* Just getting really tired of this hoo-ha, Mr. O. If the other side of luck is on my side, though, I may be able to get this car: http://www.carmax.com/enus/view-car/default.html?AVi=26&id=8514985&D=30&zip=29334&sP=10000-12000&pD=0&pI=0&pT=400&pC=200&pB=0&No=20&Ep=homepage:homepage MultiChoice&Rp=R&PP=20&sV=List&Us=14&CD=14+966+240+190+398+15+9&Q=36b6220c-7ab0-40c7-9e05-b1d791f9ad17
Now that would be beyond sweet. Always have I wanted a Smartcar ever since I saw them in England.
Yeah, whatever jackass was driving the other car was probably on something, or had a bench warrant, or no license/no insurance. </p>

Or maybe...they were the protagonist in a Guy Ritchie-style caper, and hitting you made them just late enough that they defaulted on Vinnie the Killer's loan, and the impact sent Pavel Regatti, Vinnie's lieutenant (who was tied up and gagged in their boot), into shock, and your driver opened the lid on an horrible surprise.

About now, he's having the middle fingernail on his left hand torn off with old pliers in a warehouse down in Charleston.

You *have* been having the worst time, though, yeah? Hope you can get everything sorted.

You see? It's your vile imagination that makes me love you so. I can so see that happening to the other guy and, trust me, I'm relishing in the vision.
Shit dude, that really sucks.

Is there anyone you know that does Reiki? It's pretty light weight stuff, but it might help soothe your soul after all you've been through.
Yeah, I know three people who do it, but I'm not certain that would help, dig? I've never had Reiki, and I'm such a doubting Thomas, I have no idea how or if it would work for me.
You could ask them though. At this stage, what could it hurt? I mean, I've turned quite the doubting thomas myself but sometimes, well sometimes the world goes to so much crap I'll take any help I can get, even if I'm not sure it'll actually do anything more than blow smoke up my ass.
You're right. I might reach out to either Kathleen or Lady Neith, and see what they can do.
Christ, what a...I don't even know what to call it...I guess "fucking mess" will do. So sorry!

But I do hope you get your Smart, that would be sweeeeeet. :)
That happened to me once, only I swerved and hit a corner of a building. Other driver just went on his merry way.

I hope your rib is going to be okay. And how is your new knee? Two accidents since you got that thing installed - must be bionic.

I do Reiki. Let me know if you ever want a distance session performed. I have a pic of you to use. I could light a candle and send you some concentrated goodness. T'would be my pleasure. Just email me with a time that's good.

Smart cars are cute. I always think they should have a carrying handle on top. Not good for where I'm located though - we get deep snow here. Roller skates make as much sense to me as a Smart Car in a Canadian winter.

Take heart Darlin'. The tide has to turn soon. Nothing, not even bad luck, lasts forever.
Thank you, dahlink. Once I'm fully back at the house, I will definitely cyber-jab you about that Reiki. I'm pretty much spending most of my time at Diane's right now. It's a bit of a long story, so I may write you a letter when I can.

I can see why a Smart wouldn't be very feasible in the Great White North. Still, it sucks that you aren't able to grab one (by the handle on top) because of weather concerns. Since I'm alone now and never need much room for anything I'm transporting, I think a Smartie would be perfect. If that works out, I may have to hire a herd of clowns to see how many can fit inside. haha
That sucks, m'dear.

You are and will continue to be in my prayers...
