The guy from the city called me yesterday and after a brief parlay, we came to the conclusion that fighting my ticket would be a waste of my time, his time and the court's time. So he threw it out.
Of course, if I get another ticket (in the same area) I'll have to pay it, but I'll know for next time.
I also found $10 on the sidewalk the other day, so this week has actually been pretty decent, all things concidered.
To top things off, I finally found a store that had Apples To Apples in stock, so I bought it with my parking ticket money. I'm hoping to play it a bit at work on the weekend or next week. We need some fun things to keep us from getting cabin fever this winter!
