    It's the Occupy crap. They were just egging the cops on and then chanting stuff like -"look at us.. look at us.. death to banks..we own these streets". There was nothing peaceful about it. There's more about it here - the photo's from #4 through #13, and the video clip were downstairs my building. You can actually see the camera man in my picture in the upper right. It seriously makes me feel very unsafe going outside. A couple hours ago I went to Sephora and I took one foot out the door and a lady 3 feet in front of me got pepper sprayed! It's really messed up. Alot of the businesses had to close early too, like Nordstrom.

    Really? Everyone that's camped out here has been very peaceful. They are very nice to talk to.

    That's great and how it should be! Last month they were camped out here in Downtown and it was fine, not really causing any disturbances like going and sitting in the middle of the streets during rush hour. But recently they got pushed up to the Seattle Central Campus which is like a 15 minute walk away, not really any businesses up there, but it just seems like it's getting worse out. CrAzyy.

    Hmm, sounds like they are just looking for attention. It's people like that that give protesters a bad name. What ever happened to good old fashioned protests. We did those all the time when I was in high school.

    Waiting for Dan to get here so we can go to the insurance office and pick up our check. We recently got word back that our car was officially totaled. Sucks. I really don't want to go car shopping.. I've only done it once, so I don't really know what to expect, or ask.

    Car shopping is hard, especially if you're buying something older. Be sure to get a Car Fax report, but remember it will only have stuff on it that was reported to an insurance company. Take the car to a mechanic and have a buyer's check done. They will check all the important stuff to make sure there isn't anything obviously wrong with the car.

    I think we're going to buy a "certified" used car from a dealership, which means I wouldn't have to take it anywhere else to get it checked out (right? ) Then it would come with the warranty, gone through inspection and all that good stuff. One thing I'm trying to figure out is to whether or not to pay cash. I do not want payments, but more importantly I don't want to get full coverage insurance which you have to do if you're taking a loan out on a car. That's like an extra $150 a month or something. The reason why I don't want full coverage is because I never drive. I really don't want to pay full coverage on a car that I'm only going to drive once maybe not a all per week. And from what I read online, the dealers hate it when you pay cash because then they don't get their commission on the loan or something and aren't willing to go down as much on the price.

    Oh wow, those certified used cars can be so expensive. My parents looked at them and it added quite a bit to the blue book price. They finally settled on a non-certified car. It was preowned by a car rental company and was a 2011 model. They got a way better deal. Anyway, even if it is certified, I would be tempted to have someone else look at it. If you can pay in cash, I would definitely do it. Actually, some places will give you the better deal if you do pay cash. It just depends on if they have their own financing or if you would be going through a 3rd party. It's best to wait until the end of the month, when sales people are looking to make their quotas. They will be more willing to bargain.

    I think I'm going to hold off on buying a car for right now. Maybe I'll wait until December. That's when a lot of car companies mark down last years models right :) I mean, they are getting one year older...

    I should be packing my bags right now.. .. leaving for Victoria in exactly 40 minutes. Dan and I are going up there to celebrate our 9 year dating anniversary.
