Another of my resolutions was car-related; take better care of the car. Well, it's about to demand it, it sounds like. The dealer said the tires were "shot;" that I needed new ones, all four of them. $400 for the tires, >$100 to mount, balance, and align them. I should find out what, say, NTB would want to do that work. And if they'd do it "while you wait." Who knows? But I think I believe the dealer when they say the tires are shot. The car just hasn't been handling like it used to. I wonder what would cause that though. Did I drive it too hard? Parallel park poorly one time too many? I should ask whoever I get my second opinion from. At least they'll have taken care of the 30000-mile service and the headlights and stuff like that. One fewer thing to worry about... That's probably over $100 of work right there, though.
I gotta start to remember, driving the car costs money, beyond gas money... It costs money, and it costs the world. If I can keep that in mind, I'll be better about not using the car willy-nilly.
In other news, that awkward in-between time when changing bank accounts is almost over, finally... *whew*
I wish I had someone cute and cuddly to hang out with tonight. I feel tired, and that makes me need contact a bit more, generally. I think I'll end up bugging out of work early and playing some Final Fantasy X or something instead... Maybe work on getting more photos into iPhoto. One last set remains to be gotten - the ones that languish on my old ThinkPad's hard drive. This'll be a good chance to clear off all the data from that system in preparation for sending it to my dad, actually. So there it is, a plan. Get the cobwebs out of the brain by throwing it at an easy problem.
