it hurts to grow up'
i'm tasting more of the responsibilities of grown-up life- yesterday i transferred the lease on our townhouse to my name, meaning i now have to come up with the hefty sum for the pool key and the cleaning deposit. i also applied for health insurance on tuesday and need to be looking into getting off my dad's car insurance and onto my own [can geico really save me 15% or more? we'll find out].
but the cruelest rub comes from the demon of the cable situation [i call him 'cablor']: in an effort to save costs, our homeowners association has opted to move from comcast to mstar. they have worked out some nice rates, except for those of us who have come to love our dvr--currently mstar doesn't offer dvr or hd, but when they do in a few months, for me to get the equivilent of what i get now for $20/month, i will have to pay roughly $80/month. the company skimmed over this at the town meeting last night, but rest assured, my voice will be raised now.
and i need to start looking for a new roommate, and my rent costs will go up anyway.
on the up side, i may actually get a decent deal on getting internet in my house.
dang....that sounds like a fantasy after not having it here for the last few weeks.
so much for those pumas i was going to get.
last night i was thinking about how an electron is attracted to a proton though an electromagnetic charge. yet when a proton overcomes the electromagnetic repulsion to another proton, the strong nuclear forces take control and the two are held together by a bond much strong than that between the opposing particles.
