about smartcookie

i write about what goes on in my life. i write about things i think are funny. i write nonsense. i write about bodily functions.

i have a boyfriend/husband named nathan who loves video games. we get along great. about 7% of the time. any percentage greater is purely a curious statistical anomaly.
aww i love nate!

and as our story progresses, you may wonder who i'm talking about.

aside from courageous nathan, our main characters include:
oh. and i teach dance and like accounting. the end.

poor carl is going to explode

here is an email i sent to my dad yesterday.. which sounds more like a Dear Abby letter than a daddy dearest:

to: sales manager extrodinaire
from: your daughter
subject: hello on wednesday

"and the Civic Saga continues...

so in addition to the weird thumping noise the wheels are making when i turn (now determined to be the back wheels only), my car is now LEAKING GASOLINE. here are the facts:

1. after filling it up last week, the gas gauge is at a little above half and i've going 47 miles (one tank usually lasts 260-300 miles depending on highways etc)

2. it smells like gas outside the car

3. there were two puddles underneath the car - a friend said it looks like there's only one leak but the drip is hitting something and running down a pipe and dripping there too. the main puddle was about midway in the car (laterally and vertically)

4. tonight when i drove back* from dance, i got out of the car and it smelled strongly near the actual gas filler-hole (cap? - can't think of the word) and i got on my knees to look under the car. using my flashlight keychain, the only thing i could see that was abnormal (not sure if it really is abnormal) was there is a "tank" looking thing 1 foot in from the side of the car that looked like it was wet on half of it. Is this the gas tank? would it get wet just from driving around through a puddle? could this be gas? am i going to blow up if i start my car? what should i do?"
