I had trouble in getting to Solla Sollew

I went to deposit some checks at the local branch of our bank and it turned out the branch was closed because it had been robbed. This is a mall branch. Go figure. After work, Casey took me over to Saturn to pick up my car. When I called earlier in the afternoon, I was […]

A long night’s sleep

I finally got up at 7:30 having slept for over 13 hours. I headed to IHOP for breakfast and then came over to Saturn to bring my car in for scheduled maintenance. I managed to write about 500 words while sitting here. Still waiting for my car at this point.

GTD, day 1

I was up at 7:30 AM in order to take my car into Saturn. I was scheduled to have the door check link replaced on the driver’s side door. I also asked them to check my brakes, which were squeaking. They fixed my door and brakes (only the front brakes needed fixing), resurfaced the rotors, […]

Errands and toys

I was up at 8 AM this morning and headed up to IHOP for a quick breakfast. From there, I headed to Saturn to have my car services (it was time for it’s 108,000 mile service, but since I’m driving up to Albany tomorrow, I wanted to make sure everything was in good working order […]

Friday night/Saturday morning

I went to happy hour after work last night with several people from work. We went to Chammps and we were there until just about 8 PM. I was home just before 9 PM and I tried to read for a little while but I was pretty tired and I went to bed soon after. […]

Wrap up

I spent about 6-7 hours today working on interfaces for my book collection/reading list databases. It’s possible that by tomorrow I will have enough in place to make some of this more public so that people who are curious can take a look. I’m quitting for the night on this, and I’m just going to […]

Everybody’s working on the weekend

I was up at 8 AM this morning and took my car into Saturn for my 9 AM service appointment. Last night, while in the shower, I had the strong urge to seriously consider buying a new car today, but the urge passed and sanity returned, and instead, I had my car serviced and never […]

The lights were off

When I got back to the Metro station this evening, I was relieved to see that I did not leave my car lights on. They were off and I got home just fine.

A near photographic memory for headlights?

When I got on the train this morning, I realized that I might have left my headlights on, and rather than worry about it all day, I figured I’d write about it and forget it until I get back to the train station this afternoon. I have 2 things in my favor: 1. Muscle memory. […]

Car wash

After taking a break earlier this afternoon, I went back out and gave my car a thorough washing and waxing–the first time I’ve done this since last spring, I think. The car looks so clean now, it almost shines and even looks kind of new-ish in my eyes, but that’s probably because it had been […]
