This is a good sign. Maybe I will get my car back sometime this year after all. In another week, it'll have been 2 months since the accident, and my car is somewhere being "put back together."

I'm digging the Mini, but there's nothing pretty about me driving a stick in the rain. There are a lot of girly shrieks followed by cries of "OMG We're going to die!" and "I'm trying! I'm trying!" when I stall the damn thing, which fortunately isn't often now.

Seriously, what is the draw to manual transmissions? I cry now every time I see a STOP sign, and I've never done as many California Stops as I have in the past week.

The novelty of a manual transmission wears off after like 5 minutes. It's so NOT like Xbox at all (Xbox doesn't lunge). I can't ever change the radio station or even scratch an itch. Hands, both feet—it's like a full body workout.

Sadly, apparently my car's in the shop for yet another week. I asked the nice lady at the car rental place to please find me an automatic Mini. She was supposed to call me back but never did. We hate her now.

I guess at least the rain stopped.

Post 10 anonymous things about users on your friends list but don't say whom they're about.

  1. OMG I hate you. You've just been on my friends list so long I can't take you off.
  2. Get over it already! At least 3 other people have posted the same thing about you in private entries, and I don't think you even know it.
  3. Are you ever happy?!
  4. You post way too much.
  5. You whine too much.
  6. You're so vain.
  7. I bet you think this meme is about you.
  8. Don't you?
  9. Don't you?
  10. Actually, none of these is about anyone. I totally pulled them out of my butt without looking at my friends list (that was the twist). :-D

My friend Jay just sent me this link.

I can't believe this is from Norelco


I'm still laughing, and my jaw is still on the floor. Be sure to choose "Extra Inch" from the menu once the intro is done.

Cher Stamp

Squee! You can make your own stamps! (Except, I can't remember the last time I used a stamp.)

Hmmm... it's a good thing I still like this song. LaunchCAST seems to play it a lot. Can I go home yet?

Bush is one of the worst disasters to hit the U.S.

Tell me again that Bush and his Christian Taliban in this country aren't out of control....

"Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag a people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works in every country" —Herman Goering (18 April 1946), Nazi Reichsmarshall and Luftwaffe-Chief
