I just saved 400 bucks a year by switching to GEICO. For realzies this time. Progressive wanted to raise my rates by more than $100/year, for no discernable reason. I tried esurance, but they wanted almost $1400 per friggin year (what). Erin esurance isn't that hot of a cartoon character. In the end the stack of money with googly eyes and trance-mix Jermaine Jackson won me over (okay, it was the price).

My dog decided to render my rug and carpet and security deposit utterly null and void this week, so I am having steam cleaners come in (again). I don't know if I'll get another dog after this one. I just don't know if I can handle it, honestly.

Apparently I didn't cash my first paycheck at UMaryland a year and a half ago, and the lady asked me if I wanted my money. I almost said no, because I honestly think that either they won't give it to me anyway and I don't have the time or energy to jump through hoops, even for several hundred bucks. I just don't care.

The only good news I know of is the scientific section of the new stimulus package (almost $18billion for 'research'). That's good, and maybe it will motivate me to finish my grant application. We'll see.
