Colorless Green Ideas
Unintentionally Amusing In Person

Friday, January 10, 2003  

This week...

I bought a 1998 Honda Civic DX from a dealer (6 month 6,000 mile warranty!) for less money than I would have paid the snotty private seller of the same car in worse condition. Ha ha, you snotty snotty girl! I hope your timing belt breaks—that'll show you that the 60k service and drive belt replacement falls under the heading of standard service that should be deducted from Blue Book!

I have begun to be distressed by the number of people who are referred to my site by searches for “nd0e chl1dren” (I am hoping than this post, using Davezilla’s “pr0n” trick, does not aggravate the problem). Just so everyone is clear, chl1d pr0n is not a regular feature of this web site.

And, for once, I have been consistently busy at work, which is really rather nice. It makes my days go much quicker.

Have a nice weekend, all.

Even the pr0n surfers…

Used-Car Horror

When the person you’re trying to buy a car from says “You do realize that this is a used car, don’t you?”, it’s not a good sign.

And I do realize it, but that does not mean that I want to absorb all of the service and repair costs either.

Grumpy Monday

I woke up at 3am both Saturday night and last night, and was unable to get properly back to sleep. Therefore, I am tired and exquisitely aware of how completely stupid everyone and everything is.

Plus, we are currently in the annoying finding-the-problems-and-dickering-on-the-price stage of (hopefully) buying a new (to us) car from a pretty nice-seeming lady in town. I really hope that:

a) the mechanic doesn’t find anything really wrong with the car, as all the current issues are pretty superficial


b) the woman who’s selling the car agrees to the price I want to pay

because I would really like to not have to go through this process again. It’s stressful and horrid and I hate trying to dicker.

I think that I may be reduced to going home early because I’m tired…

Stupid stupid everything…
