T: Oh I get it, it's very clever.
N: Thank you.
T: How's that working out for you?
T: Being clever.
T: Keep it up then... Right up.
- Fight Club - how is it that I had not seen this movie before this week? How had the movie not been utterly spoiled for me? If you've seen the movie, go to IMDB and check out the trivia about it. Plenty of little stuff. I guess other people got something out of the movie, too.
- Interview with the Vampire - I also (thank you NetFlix) finally got around to watching this. I was expecting something more, I think. I guess I've never been a huge fan of vampires. I did like the scene where Kirsten Dunst's hair grows back.
- Car - not a movie, the actual conveyance normally parked in my carport. I hit 90,000 miles on the thing, and I figured it was about time to have it looked at. Right about the same time, I notice a good sized crack in the windshield. And shortly thereafter, a rock gets kicked up at my face by a truck, which blossoms into a new crack, right in front of my face.
So, let's get it all fixed. Yesterday, I take it in to the dealership (cha ching, sigh) and they look it over. Oh, every seal in the engine is leaking oil. Good. The dashboard light that I need replaced is a super-special one. Made of unobtanium, one would imagine. Yeesh. Oh, and I probably need new tires. Good thing I work from home.
While they have my car, I've got a 2005 Subaru Outback - it's nicer than my car by a fair amount, and not just because it's cleaner. I have no interest in trading in my old beast, though. For one thing, I don't care for the new shape of the Outbacks. Sure, I'm a fuddy-duddy, but the new cars are too streamlined for me. I like the rounder shape of the 2000-ish era Outbacks.
- stress much? - so this morning, I wake up with huge knots in my back and shoulders. Is this because I'm trying to get a good amount of work done for work, and am frustrated with stuff that seems like it should be working? Is it because I'm upset that the car is requiring far more to keep running than I had expected? Is it any number of other little things? Perhaps.
And yet, I've recently made good progress on several projects, including that Serenity Mosaic and that servo thing. That's good.
