Moo Cards &amp;amp; the New Car

Posted by james on Oct. 26, 2007


12 pictures.

I'm ordering moo mini-cards from <a href="http://moo.com/">Moo.com</a> to use as business cards. Below are the pictures I chose, I hope they come soon! I needed something to pass out that is not a handwritten number on a napkin (no matter how useful that may be for picking up guys in the Mews... Danielle). I think my favorite one is the pumpkin twins. Lauren and I found them that way, someone had thought to stack them. Of course. What else would you do with two pumpkins?

I've been mostly silent since returning to RI. I really haven't been doing much; not working much, just hanging out with Lauren, not accomplishing all the little projects I always wished I had time for (and now I finally do). I guess I get into empty times every once in a while, and this was a down time.

I did get a car though! It's a black 1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD - just like my black & white car in HI (the Rat, not to be confused with the Rat-car) except that one was Front-wheel-drive only. I can't wait to try this one out in the snow this winter. I had to drive all the way to NH to get it (three times!), but it's in remarkably good shape. I've seen a bunch of other similar cars around RI, and all of them were promised to be in "great" shape... whichapparently around here means "great except there's no paint", or "great except there's no seats", or "great except it doesn't run and I took the A/C out because I don't know what I'm doing and someone said that makes it faster". So many sad, destroyed and neglected cars. I have yet to name this one.

I just landed in some more work, which is great. I've been itching to get back into programming and I've finally gotten it. Looks like a fun project too, so I'm sure that'll keep me busy for a while. I also have a couple more projects that may happen soon, although these jobs seem to be like C.S. Lewis... "I call all times soon". So whenever that is, I may have a lot of work to do which is better than just sitting around waiting all the time.

I've been able to enjoy the Fall a bit, which is great because it's the best time in RI. It smells amazing, and when the sun's out it's just a completely different world. Even at night it's nice, since it's not cold enough to make you hate the state, but still fun. Tonight was a full moon that acted like a spot light, and I keep wishing I could stay out looking at the stars or go walking on the beach at 11pm again in near-twilight.

Hopefully I'll update things a bit more here, and my goal is to start taking more pictures (at least one every day).

For absolutely no reason, my current desktop background. I've been listening to Relient K a lot recently.

Update on the ratcar (with pictures!)

Posted by james on Sept. 6, 2007


8 pictures.

A while back I posted about the mice that had infested the car I'm driving (the purple Saturn, aka "The Ratcar"). Here's some pics of the first mouse, the first nest, and the third nest I just found. The second nest was found in the air filter by the friendly people at Midas, who suggested I may have a rodent problem. I told them they were wrong and liars, and then ran out crying.

That'll teach them.
