The good, the bad, and the painful

This weeks been fairly blahblahblah.  I finally gave in to my parents incessant nagging to go look for a new car to replace my broken one with.  I dont want them paying for it because it'll bug me forever.  My last car I paid for.  If I dont pay for it then its not mine.  But whatever, I'll pay them back after I find a job.  So went around for a couple hours to a few places.

Saw some decent stuff, saw some horrid stuff, and saw some stupid designs that current cars seem to love doing with some brands.  The front is more sloped down, because of a european design choice.  So when I got into a couple cars I was interested in, I looked forward and couldnt see the front of the car, just the first bit of the bonnet before nothing.  How the hell do you judge your parking like this!  I cant do it.  I know in the first 30seconds of testing a car whether I'll possibly damage it at some stage.  My previous 2 cars, thats all I spent in them during the test before I was happy.  Over 20 years driving, not 1 accident.  And there were a few moments I still cant believe I avoided.  If you're confident in your car, you're confident in your driving skills.  In these ones, no.  I'll smash into something for sure.  So my choices are more limited in what to find.

That day it was particularly hotter then usual.  Its stupid hot here but the sun was even more painful.  I've also got super pale skin.  I hate the sun and the sun hates me.  Its a mutual thing.  And I'm pleased to say the bastard gave me sun burn, so my hatred for it is justified.  I wasnt even in the sun that long.  You can see a perfect separation on my skin where its white and then red.  The side of my neck somehow managed to get the worst of it.  I really dont like this.  To my skins credit I'm surprised it didnt blister.  Thats what happened last time I got sun burnt.  Who knows maybe its a little slow since this is only the next day right now.  Tomorrow it might be a little worse.  Fuck you sun.

My other joyous part that keeps me from crying from pain because of my skin is that I FINALLY completed 1 piece of my collection!  I've been after a Harley Quinn statue for YEARS.  One where shes in her classic outfit.  But I've never liked any enough to buy them.  Quite a few have been released but they werent for me.  So I've waited and waited and omg waited and finally one came!  I grabbed it instantly!

The pictures dont do the figure justice.  The colours are super vibrant, more then I've seen many statues and figures have.  I'm super happy I have it.  Shes now placed next to my Batman.  I still havent found a superman statue I'm happy with so thats an empty part still.  Will admit I'd love the blue energy version of him.  Maybe one day.  I also still need a Huntress statue.  Love the character, but she doesnt get enough love despite being in plenty of comics and even in some of the tv shows.  One day.  Those are my main ones.  There are some amazing ones of other characters, but I have to be selective because of A) Space, B) Money.  Now if I had plenty of money and my own place, one room would just be filled with statues and figures.  One can dream...
