The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Today has been very productive.

I got up about 8am, lazed about a bit, and took a shower at 9am. A little before 10am I put my clothes from the washer to the dryer and headed to the bank and made a deposit (75.05). After that I went to Wal-mart, got a new wiper for the driver side of my car (2.46) and a gallon of Rain-X/De-Icer (1.50) using a gift card (5$) my sister had given me for bringing her the gallon of gas yesterday. From there I went to the Wal-mart gas station and used the gift card I got from the Papa Johns Christmas party (25$) and the remainder of the other gift card (0.43) to almost fill up my tank.

When I got home and had my car under the car port I spent about 10 minutes getting the old wiper off and the new one on. From there I needed to drain my windshield wiper reservoir since the Rain-X bottle says "Do Not Dilute" and it was almost completely full from the last time I filled it with water. That took a wrench to unbolt the reservoir and a little twisting so I didn't have to take the wires off, but finally got it almost completely empty. From there I emptied the entire Rain-X bottle into it. After I got it bolted back on I realized I meant to wipe some on the side windows and especially the back window. I then let it squirt out on the front window, wiped it onto a paper towel, and then wiped it on the other windows.

Once I was done with that I washed my hands and got online to check my bank account and then pay my cell phone bill (which, thankfully, did not have a late charge on it). I then went to the kitchen and put a fish sticks frozen dinner in the microwave and checked the house phone for missed calls. I noticed the last cal was from "Ed America", my school loan lender. I got my account number and called them back. I explained my situation and said I wouldn't be able to pay them until I got paid on the 5th of January. She said she could put a note about that but I would still get a few calls and letters, or she could use some of my forbearance time to push ahead the December payment to January. After a little round-about of questions I decided to go with the forbearance time and also change my due date from the fourth to the eighth of each month.

Once that was done I took a few bites of my food and brought it upstairs along with some soda. From there I got my clothes out of the dryer, brought them up to my room, and hung/folded them. I'm now eating and writing this entry. Once I post this I'm going to respond to some LiveJournal comments that I've gotten on my previous posts. I don't have to get ready for work until 3:30pm so I still have plenty of time.

I'll update about work another time.

Thanks. I like to be as exact as possible so there's as little confusion as possible. :-)

Of course sometimes that means people are likely to get bored with all the little details, but... eh. *shrug*

My comment is about your icon as well. No wonder you have the boys after you.you know, there's a slight resemblance to Harry Potter from that side and that size.

All of the icons of myself hide the half a dozen moles (four of which are on the right side), the red spots, the indentions, and all the other various blemishes on my face. >.>

Yeah, it's not that bad, but it's certainly not "cute". Not that I'd get any of you to agree with me (until you actually saw me in person, maybe), but that's fine.

This particular icon was taken quite some time ago. At the time I had long hair (for me anyway) and had grown out sideburns and what-not for a few weeks. I haven't done that since. I prefer my hair considerably shorter (although maybe not as short as I got it last time).

It's alright. Finding the exact house numbers is a pain in the butt (I need to get a high-powered light) but the work isn't hard. I don't see myself doing this in the long term, though, except maybe as a part-time thing (3-4 days a week). The money is alright and is going to pay my bills so that's enough for me for now.
