So... after three whole days of nothing chaotic or awful happening in my life; today I was in a car accident. Not a serious one - just a fender-bender. No injuries, no legal stuff, damage only (appears) superficial, etc; but a nice reminder from The Universe that there seems to either be no great transcendant force looking out for you OR that there is a great transcendant force and it doesn't like you very much. After all, what could be a nicer thing to have than car repair bills while you're in the process of moving-into and furnishing an apartment, right?
Egh. I know, I know - could be MUCH worse, could've gotten hurt, someone else could've gotten hurt, etc; but still... not what I needed, on top of everything else.
In any case, if you don't see "The Big Picture" go up on this blog at the usual time (it should be up on The Escapist as regularly-scheduled, though) tomorrow; that's why: After spending (probably) all morning dealing with automotive business I'll be out all day doing two preview-screenings - one is based on one of my all-time favorite fictional characters, the other is a crude lowbrow comedy seemingly built around a single joke, and my anticipation of them could not be more reversed from where you'd generally expect them to be. Joy.
