Smack Dat Penguin!

February 3, 2004

OK, I’d better start off by explaining that headline before I get into other stuff. For a penguin-smacking good time, check out this here link. Just think of winter baseball. All you gotta do is click the mouse at the right time. I’ll let y’all figure the rest out on your own.

In other news, I’m in a much better mood than I was earlier. I was upset about my car because it smelled like burning plastic, which is rarely a sign of a happy, healthy vehicle. I feared that it was some kind of electrical short, which would end in “Gee, that’s gonna cost ya!” from my mechanic on the scale of $1200 or something. But NO! As the first sentence of this paragraph suggests, this was not the case. As I was walking back to my car at the end of the day, I chanced to see something under the car. At first, I thought it was the lights of the garage reflecting in a puddle under the car, so I was “Aw what the crap! Now my car’s leaking!” But upon further inspection, it turns out that I had driven over a plastic grocery bag the other day and the heat of my exhaust pipeline had melted it to itself, thus the wretched smell! Ah ha! I was no closer to eliminating the problem, but at least it’s not serious. I also learned that it’s really difficult to get to the exact middle of the underside of a car without a jack or by flipping it upside down, neither of which I was willing to do. So there it remains, but it’ll die eventually, and I am a happy Chris. ^.^

In closing, go see my forum.
