Last night Barb and I went to dinner at La Toscana, which I will recommend only to those who have disposable income. It is far too pretentious for a restaurant in a mall, but they had the most amazing chocolate dessert thingy.
After that, over to Hollyweird Video for a DVD gathering session. We got Chicago, Brotherhood of the Wolf, and a cute little movie about midget vampires called Ankle Biters. I'm so looking forward to that one.
We watched Brotherhood, and promptly passed out from exhaustion. Sorry paperhands.
And I still haven't heard back about the Explorer.
Now on to work!

Your SaniTest(TM) Results

Your score is:122
For easier understanding, the HPLHS SaniTest assessment algorithm converts your raw score to a scale of 1 to 10. This number is your INSANITY INDEX.

INSANITY INDEX 6.66 Your SaniTest(TM) score suggests that you are quite unhinged. Although some scientists believe this condition is genetic, others theorize that it is induced through exposure to unnatural stress. But these 'scientists,' apparently, do not hear the voices. Others who scored at this level include occultist/drug fiend Aliester Crowley and US senator Jesse Helms.

So I got the truck back with an estimate for repairs.
A little over $1200.00.

Sigh.

Wheel bearing. Ball joint. New shocks. New tires.

Bugger.
