Paul McCartney jams with monkeys

Uncirculated deutchmarks shredded to make fertilizer and asphalt

And to think, I didn't know who Beckham or what a Jaffa cake was until I started reading Ananova

This is $68million in engineering.

The hanging gardens of ath-ylon

This is not a good day. First, I go home to pick up my car insurance bill, and it's not there. Lost. Great. I called up the company, they gave me the balance, said it'd be cool for me to just send in a money order with my policy number on it. I head to the bank, that actually went well. Then, I get lunch. Go through the drive through, hand the snide chick a $20, she gives me a barely identifiable wad of change that definitely could not have come from a register. Only upon returning to the office do I notice that I've been shortchanged by $10. Fuck, my food's going to get cold. Went back, talked to the manager, he gave me my $10 back. Yes, my food was cold. No sauce, either. Oh yeah, remember the figures I ordered? still not here, no response to my email this morning. No phone number listed anywhere in the site, and the yellow pages has no listing for them. Their address is a PO box. Fuck. I called the place I'm getting my side mirror from, they "forgot" to call me to say that my mirror is in, and the same goes for the people who I'm getting my rim cap from. Christ, you'd think I could rely on people I'm giving money to.

Sad, isn't it? Its because of the lack of dependable people that I refuse to take the chance of sending cash across seas anymore. When I won a copy of Diatribe's "nothing" from Sweden, it took the guy three months to get it to me, and he never e-mailed me or kept in contact.

Sad. Truly sad.

Whenever going in for car repairs, dress in your finest itallian-style buisness suits & accent. Make sure toothpick is in your mouth at all times.

Even the most morinic mechanic can get that message in.

If they still give you shit, just wait for a nice long pause and say, "Mister Tirelli is going be extreamly displeased when he finds out that something bad has happened to his car."
