Why do I have no luck with tires?

Naturally, I woke up this morning to discover one of my tires was completely flat. I got a ride with the other guys who are on the trip (who had to turn around halfway to base to pick me up, but it beat showing up without our code) and put in a pretty good day of work, then came back, called the rental company, got someone to put on the spare tire (there was a jack, but no tire iron... brilliant), and got the tire fixed at Wall Market. The rental company may be reimbursing me for various expenses... and the service guy who changed the tire just got the car's info and no payment info. Maybe it's being charged to the company? I'll have to see where this leads... if the rental car expense is more than was cleared, I may have problems getting reimbursed, but there's no way I'm paying a service fee for a car that I'm only renting because the government made me.

While I was waiting, I finished reading the first RahXephon novel at long last, still having no idea what went on most of the time due to the constant character changes, and started reading the first Chibi Vampire novel. MUCH better. And the characters are more memorable, perhaps because I'm still reading the manga and watching the anime. It's a fun story. Rather implausible, even in the realm of reverse vampires, but a good read nonetheless. Fast, too... I'm beginning to wish I'd brought a bigger book, although I still haven't touched the four issues of Viz Media magazines I brought with me. I'll get to them eventually, I'm sure.
