To all of my LJ friends who have paid accounts: is it worth it? I'm really starting to be irked by the ads, especially the ones that temporarily reroute me. I was just wondering what people's thoughts and opinions were as far as paid accounts went, and if I should just shell out the cash so that I be done with the ads.
Doing some further research, I figure that if I get the 12 month paid account, that evens out to about $1.66 month for more user pics and no ads. For a year. And it'll be automatically billed. So far I'm leaning towards "yes" rather than "no" for a paid account, going with the yearly option instead of the six month or two month option.
Now to the actual blog post. I'm going with my friend Maria to Zillah tomorrow to tutor her kitten, Raja. Since most of the vet clinics around here charge well over $100 for just the operation and the clinic in Zillah is less than $100 for the operation, blood work, and a full check-up, we figure it's worth the gas money to go to Zillah, which is an hour away from where we live.
We're not sure whose car we're taking yet, but I'm lobbying for mine, especially since my husband and I just gave it its monthly check-up. Oil is fine. Coolant is fine. One tire is a little low, so I'll get that taken care of before too long (currently too hot to do, thanks). Besides, mine also has the better stereo and the blue-tooth connectivity for my phone. Also, since we're going to spend the day up in Ellensburg and I actually sort of know my way around town, we decided that I would be driving in E-burg anyway
. Since I figure my car is road trip worthy, it'll probably be safer to take my car.
Since I had to run over to the auditors office this morning to renew my tabs, I took advantage of the close proximity to the Fred Meyer fuel station and gassed up, followed by a stop at the car wash because we've been having dust storms. There's still a very fine layer of dirt on my car, so I'll probably end up having to use the brush on my car next time, but it's looking better than it did.
My car is smaller than Maria's, but I don't think we really need a ton of room for two people and a kitten. We had also invited another friend to come along, but we haven't heard anything from her, so we've taken the radio silence to mean that she either forgot about it, or can't make it. Either way, it's no big deal. We're heading out early tomorrow morning (leaving the TC proper no later than 7:15) so I'll be showering tonight and attempting to go to bed early (we'll see how well that works out).
Well, I think I need to hydrate myself properly before heading back out into the heat so I can inflate my tire.
