1. So, the Honda dealership somehow managed to get my car back to me after working on it, basically, for two days. This worries me. They replaced 60-some individual parts. I basically have no confidence in the car I loved now. So, trying really hard to decide if I should just trade it in or not. Test drove a few things over the weekend, including a BMW that I LOVE. Now, I live very near the United States BMW plant. Their employees get some great perks, including dirt cheap use of their products. So I’ve never wanted a BMW because everyone and their cleaning lady here has one. But, damn, this one I have picked out is purty! And drives like a dream. Mmmm…what to do, what to do?
2. Had a great New Year’s weekend. Rang in the new year at a house party, where something called Jim Jones punch nearly got the better of me. An old friend and his partner visited my little town for the weekend, was great catching up and showing them around. We had dinner at a Persian restaurant I’ve been wanting to try. Basically, there was very little on the menu that sounded familiar to me, but I tried a sampling of kabobs that were incredible—particularly something called a Kabob Torsh, which is beef tenderloin in a pomegranite and walnut marinade. Very good stuff! We did some barhopping before and after dinner. Had a great time, though at our last stop the old Honey and the new Sweetie (yes, faithful readers, there is one) came face to face. Awkward for all, but I guess it’s good to have that over with.
3. Had three showings of the Plastic Palace last week, including one who came back for a second look. I smell an offer…and I think 2010 is gonna be a great year so long as work stays steady enough that I can keep a paycheck. Still not seeing anything but the dimmest glimmer of that light at the end of the economic tunnel.
4. There’s no cable at my temporary residence, but my roomie has a huge collection of movies and TV shows on DVD. He has gotten me hooked on “How I Met Your Mother“…I love all the cast members, and the storylines are great–I’d call it the “Friends” of the 2000’s. Anyone else a fan?
