it is = it is

Walked outside the college today and into the faculty parking lot, where I saw my car had been… booted. It’s been a while since I’ve had that feeling of my heart sinking, but I think I handled it reasonably well… called the number on the window sticker, took the Red Line down to Addison, then hopped on the Addison bus over to the city revenue office to set up a payment plan for my tickets. It was a pain in the ass, but nothing to get too worked up about. I knew this would come sooner or later (as a city employee, I’m not supposed to have unpaid tickets* — and I’ve been getting Official Warning Letters threatening wage garnishment), so I can’t be too angry they found my car when it was, uh, parked in a city lot.

The Green-Eyed Boy is coming over in half an hour — he chairs a meeting tonight, and afterward we’re off to Sex and the City. Did I mention how awesome it is to have a boyfriend willing to see that movie with me? Now, I’m off to shave my legs… ooh la la!

*bribes, ghost payrolls, and patronage are OK, though
