I Don’t Feel Sorry For Car Salesmen

I almost typed salesemen. It’s a subtle difference. So I went to look at Dodge Neons at the Denny Hecker’s Dodge. Well, Neons or Hyundais or anything that would be a decent deal, but I had a pretty good idea what I wanted. Well. You know. If I’m not getting a Lotus Elise, what I would want. At first I was pretty happy with the sales guy because he was willing to walk me through the lot and show me cars, but unfortunately the cars were shitty. We finally got back to the front door, and I said that I was sorry that they didn’t have anything that I was interested in, so he said that he could look up anything in the Denny Hecker system. Anyways he came back and said that they could fix up the Neon on the lot to my requirements. It took forever for me to get a real number from the guy, price-wise, and when I did, it was at least 1500 over book. Amazing. I’m thinking of going back and making an offer three grand under book. When the salesman acts all hurt and says that he has to eat and feed his family, I would just reply with the deepest chagrin:
I’m a poor car salesman, and I can’t afford…” — except in the voice.

Moving To Anoka?

Yes, it’s pretty certain that I will be moving to Anoka as soon as I get transportation ironed out again. I know that I have made my views on the suburbs plain, but Cake Woman works in Anoka and already lives two blocks from work. She would like to continue walking to work.

Dear Art-A-Whirl That I Miss Every Year

I think that you know where this letter is going…

I did, however, get to Kate and Pete’s wedding, where I took a few pictures.

One, Two, Stadium’s Coming For You

Twins ballpark nightmare comes true

“How can you sleep?” asked Jerry Bell, the Minnesota Twins chief stadium negotiator. That’s a good question. Didn’t all the parents of the neighborhood lock the stadium in the boiler room and set it on fire? Now it’s back to haunt our dreams — except they’re real!

Gallery Updates

I’m pretty sure that most of my bandwidth goes to making downloads of gallery available to the wild internets. I have transferred about half a terabyte since September 2004 to May of 2005. Wow. That’s a ton of data (if each byte weighs about 1.65015943 micrograms).

Welcome, Wisconsinites


We cleaned up here at work in honor of some visitors from Wisconsin, so I cleaned our jar of alien fetus.

Not that these have posted yet, but I looked them up in GRIT, so they must be right:
CSCI 3081 89.755% B+
CSCI 4131 98.629% A
CSCI 5403 86.100% B+
CSCI 5421 85.850% B+

Wow. Not only did my head not implode, but I’m even satisfied with those grades. I got 100% on my 4131 final.

It’s Friday, I’m In Booze

Paul is graduating, and Friday was his last day. Every day up until Friday I blinded myself to the immediacy of his departure. I just put it out of my mind because he has been such an essential part of me not losing my shit every day at work. I mean, work itself is not terribly stressful, but it seems to be the fulcrum of the giant lever being operated on by school and my home life. Zach does his part with psychotic psychadelic music and the ensuance of hilarity. Paul is the original other half of Team Kickass, so even gerrymandering to allocate a district of Team Kickass to Zach can’t close the hole.
