Car Issues ...

Recently I've been having car issues. The first place that I took my car to told me that I needed $750 in repairs. Because I thought that was too much, I took it to a second place for another estimate which told me that I just needed a new radiator cap and that he did that for free.

At this point I am not sure who to believe. There a coolant liquid leak coming from the bottom and my dad and I thought it might the plastic reserve container, so we went to the junk yard to pick up a replacement. Oh man, that was an adventure. There doesn't seem to be a leak anymore, but I am not going to drive the car anywhere until I am sure that I take it to another place and make sure that I know exactly everything that is wrong.

Most of my days are spent suit and tie and behind a desk. Today I was in a big dirt lot with thousands of junk cars, pulling parts that I needed. This was actually a lot of fun, but something that I would not want to do on a frequent basis.

Maybe as I should take up car mechanic as a hobby. Certainly a useful hobby.

No big deal. Seriously, why is the media making such a big deal out of it? There was no major damage and everyone is fine. I was on the 4th floor of a downtown L.A. building and I barely moved.

No doubt, it WAS scary, and I WAS scared, but it's over. Time to move on.

Need to deal now with the injunctive relief allowed by Washington state consumer protection laws that will provide for class certification under FRCP 23(b)(2).

Any ideas???

Stolen Poem ...

Guess I am feeling artsy tonight. The following is a poem I stole from Randi's Facebook profile.

Por una mirada, un mundo,
por una sonrisa, un cielo,
por un beso..., yo no sé
que te diera por un beso.
-Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer


For a look, a world
for a smile, a sky
for a kiss, I don't know
what I would give you for a kiss

A Story (sorta) ...

I was bored and wrote a little short story. Not even a story since nothing happens, more like tib-bit of a stream of conscience plastered on a computer screen.

DISCLAIMER: The author hereby disclaims all implications that the following is autobiographical in any way. The characters and events depicted in this story are fictions. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

He sits there, quietly, pondering his life. “How did I reach this point in my life?” He wondered. While at the same time he knew the answer. Love is at fault, but he dare not even whisper this idea, for only a cynic blames love for the hardships in life.

Is he heartbroken?

How many things about her must he love before he can say, “I love you?” How many moments of bliss must he experience with her, before he can call it love? How many moments of anguish must he feel in her absence to label it love?

Yes, he’s heartbroken! She refuses his advances. He will never survive this.

Ring! Ring!

A call …

It’s an old friend; she wants to get together for lunch. Then he remembers, he loves this one too! She’s single now. All is well again ….

I've been neglecting my blog. If my blog was a child, social services would be pounding on my door already.

For the most my life has evolved around work. I have been hanging out with Andy more, but every time we decide to do something fun, something happens that forces us to change plans. Last night it was car issues (as in overheating!), and were forced to cancel our original party plans.

Less than a month before school starts.

This week I also got my degree audit paperwork. I have 27 units left. I will be taking 14 units in the Fall, 2 units in the new intercession term, and 11 units in the Spring. It's looking like I will working at KBK two days a week, Wednesdays and Fridays.

One more year and I graduate.
