Well got some good news and some bad news, so I am going to start with the good news first.

Just got back from the Renaissance Festival and got me a new 2011 collectors edition Stein to go with my one from 2010.

Next to each other,



New one



Now for the awesome bit, it was in the freezer at the front desk where they are sold and was for sale with beer so I got it and found out it was #001 of 888 made and was like So I then found out that they guy who designed them is at the fair so I tracked him down and got a signature!









Now the bad news, I get to go into work and pull the back bumper off to see if there is any damage to it as I got rear ended AGAIN!

Doesnt look like there will be to much damage since the damage on the outside isnt as bad as it could be.

^^ It can always be worse but if my last accident was any indication of how bad it can be makes me a little worried. The last time was a little worse as far as scratches go but the costs were over $1800 in damages. Granted this was a low speed collision but you know how newer cars are with the crumple zones and stuff.

Well I had an interesting drive home. I turned into My complex a bit faster than usual, and bottomed out a bit(not unusual lately, My struts have been screwed since FocusFest), and I don't think anything of it until I need to brake....and My pedal goes soft. I had enough brake left to limp into a parking spot near My building, but pressure is almost completely gone. Now I'm 10 miles from the closest shop, so it looks like I'll be taking this little glitch on Myself. Sure hope I have put in enough karma hours with the management to keep them from giving Me too much grief over it.
