I can't say I entirely understand the validity behind a UN panel on Battlestar Galactica but I'll take any opportunity to see Mary McDonnell and Edward James Olmos. You can, too, here.

I have a very long and involved story involving the first day of the year I put the top down on my car, a fabulous run in a park, and a tow truck. I'll spare you and leave it at this: despite paying for repairs on my car, I currently have a 1982 loaner BMW in my driveway instead of my car. Quite frankly, between this and the basement ceiling collapse/leak, I am quite the trooper these days.

Tonight we celebrated my friend's daughter's adoption day and, afterward, I stocked up on wine and some food for this weekend with [livejournal.com profile] carta, [livejournal.com profile] kiffle and [livejournal.com profile] anamchara!!! (I hope you're all feeling well SOON!) Now I'm settled in with Sally and Criminal Minds.

Oh! And today, at work, I went to a money school session on budgeting. It was an awesome reminder of things I know but aren't currently doing. I should, for example, put money away monthly for regular expenses like car insurance & home owners insurance. I also want to add money to my savings in the amount of four months tenant rent so, if my tenants leave, I don't have to dip into my current savings to cover the float until I find new tenants. It's a bunch of little things that add up to a slightly better sense of control over my finances in this crazy uncontrollable economy.

ETA: I at an unthinkable amount of food today. SO. FULL.
