New Car!

Wow. Interesting day, today. For the second time this week I returned to Longview to go to a car dealership with my parents. After much waiting and telling them what I wanted, long (presumably thoughtful) pauses by my parents about what to buy, what price to pay, and what they thought I needed were held in front of the car salesman (who was very young for a car salesman, it seems). Eventually, they decided to buy me the car. I do not have this car in my possession as of now because they had to get it from a place near Houston. They didn't have the car I wanted in the color I wanted with the options I wanted. Apparently, there were only three such cars which fitted all of my conditions in the state of Texas. I can't help but feel a small twinge of pride about that. The car will be anxiously awaiting my return from Key West. Anyway, if you want to see the car, go here.

After I got back from Longview, I had the absolute joy of taking care of a few animals for my grandfather while he is in Arkansas. Why, you may ask, is this an absolute joy for a person who despises taking care of outside animals? The answer is very simple: he pays me $20 a day to do a job that takes less than an hour to complete. After the obligatory "you don't have to pay me that much" objection, I gladly took the money and, today, went to work.

And now I need to type up some stuff that I promised some people I would type up in order to not feel like a lazy piece of crap.
