Nescafe rabbit

He ran into my knife ten times!

Woke up with the alarm this morning, at 5:45 like a good girl. I didn't want to, and in all honesty I didn't get out of bed until nearly 7, but I did awaken and stay mostly so until then. Made plans to leave at 7 so that we'd actually get out the door just in time to drop off Michel-Ange at Fox and Fox. They're going to fix his alignment and ball joints - hopefully so that he stops going >klunk< when I turn or go over one of the ubiquitous potholes on my way to absolutely anywhere. That would be nice; the noise is really rather unnerving.

So we dropped off Michel-Ange and Angel dropped me off at school after napping on my lap for 20 minutes or so. And I suddenly wondered: when did I learn to like eating oranges? Up until not so long ago, I shunned all things orange (perhaps a subtle rebellion of the poet in me; no use for anything that doesn't rhyme) - but now, of late, I find them quite yummy. Had an orange this morning, foregoing my yoghurt for it. Was good. Plus, fruit is good for you. And oranges, whole, are a good bit of fibre.

Too bad I'm so sleepy; Dr. Lee plans to finish her lecture in lab too. Why can't they schedule this stuff right?

Ow. *sobs*

Got the estimate on Michel-Ange. Somewhere between $7 and $800, it appears, and that's all what he referred to as a "priority list".
Ball joints loose and alignment - before the ball joints give out and the car dies.
Fix the boot over the passenger's side drive shaft that's been ripped open, and replace the drive shaft.
Replace some funny link in the bit that keeps the wheels level when you turn - the source of the >klunk< and something that Should Be Fixed.
Ow. I bought the car for only twice this much. But he's a good car. I love him. I just wanted to have a little room to breathe in the next few months' budget. With the downpayment looming, we're running on empty...

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

Sitting in Fox and Fox, waiting for Michel-Ange to get done. No point in having Jim take me home, just to have to find a ride back again.
Shouldn't be long; he said half an hour or so. Angel: why don't you do some notes? I should've brought my keyboard - it would be way more practical to do them then.

*ponders* Thínk I'm going to go read a book.
