Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

I found out Friday that it will take $1,000 worth of repairs to get my car to pass its State inspections.  This song has been running on a loop in my head ever since.

Oh man, that sucks.

You can always make a few extra bucks as a seamstress.
I'd pay for one of your designs.

Bummer Gwen. If you do have to get a new car though it's the best time ever to buy one.

Maybe it would be cheaper to move to a state with less restrictive tests :)

If I had a little money...I'd say F the overtime next weekend, and I'd head to your house. :(

And i'd send you some, too.

We need hugs, don't we Gwennie.

I will offer you as much as $4 to sleep with me, which isn't much, but given how long I last, would translate to like $16,000 per hour.

I just had something similar happen to me. except it is only something like a $250 repair. I was heartbroken after paying 2 years of property taxes on it.

FARK! That really does suck! But then, so does Abba...

I love that video! Maybe it's because I'm flying high at the moment, but MAN!!! That video isAWESOME!

Boo, that sucks.

Maybe the Bosnian bakery can do a bake sale to raise the moolah for you?

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Oooh steep.. well, maybe a cute mechanic can hook you up for a lesser fee?? Alittle batting of the eyelashes(false ones?), a hair toss, and some charming wit works wonders.

Abba rocks!

ABBA really is the voice of a generation. A broke-ass generation.

You should go play the Christian Bale F-bomb dance remix a few times. That should lift your spirits.

Son of a Thomas said...

Sorry we don't live closer. I'd do the repairs for you.

Cowguy said...

I watched the ABBA video, I read of your financial woes... I am so depressed I'm going in a dark room and beat myself up and I'm not coming out until I'm not moving.

Wait....

Oh, new pic? The mysterious hotness.

Gwen, that sucks..I hate MO as a state thats why I live in IL

I guess your car is as old as the music running through your head. Too bad. I don't know what color the sticker for 2009 is in MO but maybe you can just buy a magic marker instead. (do they even use different color stickers there?)

Suze said...

I have some coupons that might help. Well it's for chocolate, but at least you would be feeding your inner self while sleeping with Pistols for the money :)

Renaissance Woman said...

Maybe you could sing that song to the people doing repairs...maybe they would knock off a few pennies. Sucks!

Grant Miller said...

Skip the repairs and get some headbands like those. They rock.
