Saturday, March 28, 2009's been a few days...

I've treating this whole "car in the shop" thing as somewhat of an experiment. Can I live without a car of my own? Of course, the answer is yes; but would I like it? That answer would be no. Even though I haven't been driving my car that much since I moved to the D.C. area, it's still nice to have. Just being without her since Monday has me feigning for a cruise...

After all that, I still foresee the GTI going bye bye within a years time. I'm not sure if a refinance will get her payments down to what I want it to be. So, with school looming ever closer and closer each day, I think it's time to do something I haven't done yet...and that's buy used!

We'll see...

I knew it would happen

That I would join Twitter and not post on the blog as much. Well, at least that's what it appears is happening. In reality, not much is going on. I did finally drop my car off at the body shop today, so I should be car-less here for a week or more. I also wanted to share a picture from when my Grandparent's visited the weekend before last. It's a bit blurry, but you get the idea.

I could've used this last summer...

From Engadget:

"...(they) found an option to enable the "Find My iPhone" service in the MobileMe settings. Unfortunately, that's all we've got, but we wouldn't put it past Cupertino to build some location tracker that'd be the envy of Orwell himself -- hey, that'd be pretty useful if you accidentally left the mobile in a taxi."

Oh man.

It was only a matter of time

In the down time between hanging out with my Grandparent's yesterday, I went to Clarendon and made a quick purchase. You knew it was coming, and if you look at the Twitter feed, you may have already guessed it. Because when I got to hold one, I was sold.

Another cool video

I happen to really like the car too:

How's this for timing?

So everyone knows I'm reading the Chronicles of Narnia, right? Well, after meeting with my other friend just last night for our little book club, I ran across an awesome deal. So, I do my daily check on Amazon, and see that the Deal of the Day is the 2 Narnia films on Blu-Ray for $30! That would normally be around the price of just one...needless to say the order has been placed. :)

Talk about strange timing though...

Can I see your ID?

Can you believe, I was actually carded when buying a video game today!? I'm actually glad to see this happening...and of course, stoked someone thought I looked too young to buy a "Mature"-rated game.

Twitter feed

So, I'm going to try the whole Twitter experiment. It's basically a website where you input whatever you're doing in order to update your friends. I placed a feed on the blog for now which you can find right above my picture.
