Nice to meet you Carlos.
No, I said “car-less”.
Oh, that’s very different.
Today I am without wheels, well, at least motorized ones.
I returned the Fiat yesterday and I’ve yet to hear back from Peach Auto about the Jackmobile so I am in auto limbo. The timing of being carless wasn’t too bad for yesterday because I needed to spend (the lovely Sunday) at work trying to get some shit working before I check out for the week on Wednesday; I only wish that it had gone better. I had prepared to spend the night in the office, packing a change of clothes in addition to my Therm-a-Rest and sleeping bag, and spend the night I did. My plan to walk up to LA Fitness early this morning to work out and shower never materialized, so I showered in the office’s fitness room in a shower lacking sufficient hot water.
On Friday I test drove a 2014 Subaru Crosstrek. On Friday I determined, because of its inability to get to highway speed in a jiffy, that this will not be the car I choose if I am going to replace the Jackmobile. I’m a man who requires acceleration and the Subaru’s just didn’t cut it for me.
I’m hoping that things around the office go much better today so that I can sneak away and test drive a Mazda 6 after (hopefully) picking up the Jackmobile.
I am mentally prepared to move on from the Jackmobile, at least until I see what my increased insurance rate will be.
A Lovely Time Was Had By All
It was fun hanging with the Raleigh Royalty over the Thanksgiving break. I spent most of Wednesday through Saturday with them, hence my need for a car to get me to Tucker and back on a daily basis.
On Saturday the gang headed out to Dave & Buster’s where I played many a game, watched Georgia Tech give away the game to Georgia and then take it back twice, and saw some of the game in which my beloved Florida Gators couldn’t make FSU pay for their sins.
My mission, in addition to getting as many tickets as possible for the four kids who split the booty, was to practice for my office Christmas party which will be held at the same Dave & Buster’s a week from Wednesday.
Okay, need to get back to work.
