Yesterday, I learned (at a pretty inopportune moment) that my 2000 Galant with ~146000 miles will have to be let go. It's not dead by any means but it'll just cost way over the value of the car to get in solid shape. At the moment it won't hold a charge - not $$$$ fix but I swear I replaced the alternator no more than 2 years ago. Plus there's another $1200+ in fixes it needs (probably a good bit more).

Last week my boss [gently] cornered me and got me involved in a painful IT/CRM related project that I previously knew little about (given a peer here was much more involved and sidestepped for unexplained reasons). Now just moments ago I was asked to get involved in a 2nd IT related project. As these rarely go anywhere and won't lead to any chances to impress the right people, I politely...
Stumbled across Tinariwen on NPR. Pretty great guitar work
About half way through the fictionalized account of Valentino Achak Deng's journey from South Sudan to USA. Very funny and harrowing (frequently at the same time). This is a ginormous book. Just started it for when I want a break from What is the What. A little dry at the moment so I hope things pick up when the political/board room power grabs start.
amusing video but he's kind of a jackass
