he thinks he'll be alright but he doesn't know for sure, like every other unindicted coconspirator

Many things have occurred in the last two days. Phred has had his Windows washed, and everything reinstalled; Ethel is getting the same treatment. I have 200 gigs of free space divided between the various HDs now. Wooo! Man, I remember when a computer with a lot of storage had a tape drive.... cassette tape, that is.

I suspect I will be buying a Honda soon. Possibly one born this millennium, as I am really just waiting on the garage getting around to telling me that Eunice is officially DNR.

I hope I can find one that's not silver or gold. It seems as if nearly all Hondas are silver or gold...

In other news, netcurmudgeon and ashacat and evynrude and I did a very little hiking today, the first, super-easy dry run in Project Kilimanjaro. Species noted include Solomon's seal, asters, shagbark hickory, eastern newt efts, a brown-hooded owlet caterpillar (eating the asters), an eastern cottontail wabbit, and a baby milksnake that ashacat rescued from the cement stairwell of Heublein Tower, where it had somehow gotten stranded.

netcurmudgeon has some  photos of the mountain (pretty), the rest of the gang (charming), and one or two including me (at my least attractive) up over here,

Why not silver? It has amazing dirt-hiding abilities.
Because I don't really like it?
Good reason!
She could always be a bottle redhead.

I'm sure they have paint shops in Arizona.
Hmm. You may have spotted a trend, there.
*g* He is, of course, named for the Doonesbury character....

Ignatz is pretty awesome.
There are other colors. I, for example, drive a dark blue Accord.
My friend Karen has a black one!
I've got an ice-blue Civic Hybrid.
Me too!
I had a white Honda Civic Station Wagon for 10 years. When my arthritus wouldn't let me park it anymore (no power steering) I got a VW Golf, also white. I have to haul boxes of stuff. It is a good car, sturdy and all that. Have had it for 7 years, so it is still a youngster. It does have a fault tho. Every so often it thinks I am stealing it and it honks wildly. I have noticed that no one pays any attention. I have taken it in to have a honkectomy, but they just sneer at me at the garage.
If you haven't encountered Shaenon K. Garrity's other work, I highly recommend her Mad Science webcomic Narbonic. It all starts here: http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=9763 (and the art does indeed improve with time).
Thank you.
