"POW!", "BAM!", "ZONK!"

What's happening to me right now made me think of the TV series Batman (the one with Adam West). "POW!", "BAM!", "ZONK!" As in it's punches, but whatever, it won't kill me.

- My furnace inspector found a crack in the furnace (and I felt it). I will need a new furnace. As my air conditioning is also old and crap, I'll need to replace both at one time. Supposedly if I buy certain types, I'll get $1,500 tax credit and up to $2,000 from the state. That's off of approximately $10,000. Luckily they have payment plans, and I have some money saved.
- I am having two crowns put in without the benefit of the pre-tax thingie. I should have waited until January. I didn't wait because I thought I would get a job and have to move out quickly. Duh. High hopes.
- One side of my mouth I cannot chew on. Which means something is going wrong. So I have to go get a consult from someone who would have to do a root canal. More money.

Oh, BTW, I still hate my hair, and I spent a lot of money on it.

One final note, in searching for an image of the Batman fights, I found a very disturbing term that's in the urban dictionary. Batman bang. I refuse to put a link here because I don't want psychos coming to my block. Beware if you look it up. OMG.

I'm off to California tomorrow early early, so I might not post until December! Likely will meet Laura B in person - don't you dare take photos of me... :-) All the best to you all.

That sucks. I hate when I have to spend money on unfun things. I'm jealous of your trip to California, though. I would love to meet Laura B. in person.

Thanks Susan!
Squirrel, ah well. and it should be "OOF"
Churlita, it's a good thing I used frequent flier miles for the trip, else I'd be moaning and groaning about spending money. I will let you know how she is. ;-)

Oh have a great time! (Do me a favor and give the dancing bear a big hug for me.) What fun.

The money things... ouch! Same goes for the tooth issue. Yikes.

Houses and mouths are expensive propositions. It's hard when it hits all at once like this. Sounds like you are very on top of things though.

Can't wait to meet you!

Oh, and I think I will avoid looking up 'batman bangs'. There are a number of things that come to mind, none of them good.

I'm so sorry, things that cost money piss me off, especially when they aren't fun things like annoying home repairs and medical bills.

I have no clue what a Batman Bang is but it sounds hilarious. I think I will look it up, haha, I'm just laughing thinking about it, I bet it's going to have me laughing all night.

I can't say I'd be thrilled about the furnace and dentist and....

But can I wish you good things and blessing for this Thanksgiving.

OMG I hate it when I pay a fortune for a haircut and then i hate it. i begin to think that if I wash it three times a day it will sooner than later change and be better.
