You know life is getting strange when your own mother suggests that you should get a sports car to try and attract women. I told her "I don't think my Taurus is the reason I don't have a girlfriend", and she said "well, you know, it's the total package...". Yikes.
Things are kind of weird right now. Rehearsals have started for Trial By Jury/H.M.S. Pinafore; they have been frustrating on multiple levels (some related to the actual show, some completely unrelated).
I had an annoying adventure with Best Buy over the weekend; I went in on Saturday to buy Gran Turismo 4, and accidentally bought the open box for the demo disc. So I brought it back on Sunday to exchange for a box with the actual game in it, and it took entirely too long to get somebody who figured out I wasn't trying to rip them off. They won in the end anyway, since on Saturday, they did NOT have a Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel/pedals combo in stock, and on Sunday they did. So, I've been having some fun with that this week, although I'm forcing myself to learn how to drive with a) manual transmission and b) no TCS or ASM, which means I can no longer just plow into corners and let the computer handle things, I have to actually have some skills. Braking skills....shifting skills....gosh.
Soon I should have photographs to show off; I have five rolls to scan and tweak and get the best ones posted to Flickr. Some might be friends-only, but again, if you friend me I more than likely will friend you.
I am looking forward to Saturday, when copious quantities of steak and wine shall be consumed, along with some other stuff, probably. Vote in the poll and help me decide.
