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.

did you check with State Farm,they're supposed to be the lowest around.

Now the question is did you keep full coverage or decide to gamble with liability only?

State Farm was also a little higher than Geico, and geico's nat'l... plus the gecko talks, man, he talks!!

Actually I got rid of collision some time ago and only had liability, underinsured, PIP, and comprehensive, so I kept all those again and didn't get collision. I dunno if I need collision on my old-ass truck. But I priced it and even with it it was still much cheaper than my old one w/o it, so I might get it later if I get paranoid.
