Minor warning for the easily motion-sick; the camera is not terribly stable, and does shudder a bit.

So. This new place I'm in.

It's kind've a long story.

A really long story. )

Or, Wherein the MINI Narrowly Escapes Hail Damage.



As soon as I pulled the cover on, this happened.

Good:

I am done with finals.

I go home on Sunday.

I will hopefully be bringing Voodoo back with me when I return to SLO.

Bad:

I'm pretty sure I failed my OCHEM final. Which means I may have to repeat the class. Again.

The gas home will likely cost $60+.

The mechanic at Sears probably took about 5 years of life off the MINI's clutch today, as he refused to fully disengage the pedal when he drove it onto the ramp. The sound was horrible, and I don't know why they hire people like that to handle people's cars.

Yep

Today, I managed to get solid green lights all the way down Higuera and halfway up Foothill.

The MINI took it all fairly well, cruising along in second the whole way... but I just couldn't help but think that Voodoo would have really gotten a kick out of that much uninterrupted road.

Heard outside my window:

*skritch-SCRAPE THUD*

Guess what kiffies got this weekend?

Hint: It's small, round, and looks like a bean.

It's probably a bean. )

Dirty bum.

If you haven't met Voodoo yet, you're probably very new around here. Practically every other post is Voodoo-related. X3

Shiny Bum

And, of course, there was Jeeves. Elibeens named him. He was the best Jeeves. :3

The other cars... not so much. We would just call them by their model: "The Taurus" or "the Rabbit"... My dad's new car is simply "the Civic."

Of course, with the incoming MINI, I might have to figure out something there. Hissy has taken to referring to it as "Archimedes," which I do like, but I did have a bike named Archie and he was kind've a handful. I think passing on a name would be interesting, but also very odd. We shall see.

Update!

The MINI comes in next Saturday!

Which means Voodoo will be going home next week.

I've spent the last month or so getting her ready for the move -- new wipers, new seals on her quarter windows and doors, new right caliper, tuning, overhauls, and patching a hole in her exhaust. There are still things that need to be done, of course, but right now I'm content that she's in working order.

I'm gonna miss the little money pit. Whenever I felt down, I could just hop in and go, knowing I wasn't wasting too much gas or taking up too much space on the road. The MINI isn't going to be like that -- it's a station wagon, after all. It's a hauler, not a sportscar. No more afternoon drives just for the hell of it. Ah well.

My mom will be taking care of Voodoo until I'm out of school in... four years? Five? Then, maybe, I'll get her back and we can go back to normal again.
