So I'm back from Ohio for a week, first week at the new job was phenomonal. Plus, I've managed to find us a place to live, big bonus. As for rental cars, I had a Dodge Avenger R/T, quite well-optioned for a rental. And I needed those heated seats on Friday, when it dropped to a crisp 35 degrees outside. Only one real complaint about the car, they have a chrome inset on top of the shifter that perfectly reflects the sun into ones eyes on those bright days we had until Friday. Still, quite zippy, comfortable for a smaller car, and Avis was nice enough to let me drop it in a different place than I picked it up. I'd give the car a solid B+.
Not much news on the weekend, worked on packing the garage and breaking down shelves, I'm going to be Sir Gimpsalot by the time you read this, I'm sure. Oh, and I broke down and actually bought a car. I still think it's an impulse, though Lori thinks that the years I've been ogling new cars constitutes a measured purchase.
This week in movies, La Bev quickly identified last week's quote from The Addams Family. I was always a fan of the original show, when it was on in syndication between Bugs Bunny cartoons and The Munsters. Loved the Sonnenfeld films, they gave the characters a slightly darker feel, as I think Charles Addams originally intended.
As for this week, I'm tired and quite sick of fighting with the computer, so I'm forgoing the quote this week. Let's just call it an Ohiatus. Because that's how I roll.
Oh, Just Shut Up and Lie Down Somewhere
