I still hate cars, but slightly less

Well, my car’s fixed now. Broken camshaft. If you don’t know what that is, it’s more than $600. If you want to know how it works, check out this link on How Stuff Works. This is possibly the coolest site I’ve seen on the ‘net in quite a while. It explains how a lot of stuff works in easy-to-understand detail, and not just machines like cars. Cars, money, people, health, entertainment, etc. Very cool. I could just spend hours there learning how stuff works.

In other news, Megs and I just saw The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Extended Edition on DVD. Very cool. We just watched the feature, not any of the extras. I’m not sure if next we will see some of the bonus features on discs three and four, or watch the feature again with some kind of audio commentary. I really liked the cast commentary on Fellowship, so I’m looking forward to it.

Oh, and get this–IT FREAKIN’ SNOWED IN EUGENE TODAY!!! It’s been a while since this kind of meterological event has occured around here so it was quite the scene at work. Most of the office went outside for at least a little while this afternoon while it was going on. Most of the snow gone by now, but it’s supposed to continue to be cold this week so perhaps we will get more. The clouds are still here. =)

Well, I think that’s it. If you love me and more importantly if you love my car, you’ll send money! 😉 Take care!

    It’s snowing here! It’s snowing and it’s sticking and I’m happy, oh so happy, well, maybe until I actually have to go out into the stuff.

    I’m sorry about your car, Chrissyfur. =(
    Miss you lots, say hi to Megs for me. Maybe we can go to brunch one of these days…

    Ok Chris- why do I get a ‘Forbidden’ page when I try to go to Kimi’s site?

    You’ve got an old bookmark. Kimi’s page used to live on my gladstone account. It was set up to auto-forward to her gladstone account after she got one, but recently my gladstone account was killed off (I graduated or something), so that forward isn’t there anymore.

    Kim’s actual site is at:
    http://gladstone.uoregon.edu/~kbrunner

    Then doesn’t it make the “comment on this” button a bit superfluous? (Hehehe, I said “superfluous”…)
