MANLY thing I did today:
in 30 minutes this morning I opened up the wife's car and replaced the brake switch and hood latch, then topped off the washer fluid and oil and checked. All the error messages are gone now.
I built a bed frame the other night retrofitting a futon frame onto two platforms I assembled. The thing is completely solid, firm, and supportive. The height is perfect for storing my boxes underneath and getting in/out of bed.
Not the prettiest thing but it's functional and perfectly fits the tight space that I have it in. There is seriously no room for a normal bed frame and I don't have a box spring to use those generic metal ones (little ability to store under those anyways). All in all it cost me $20 for the futon frame and everything else I scavenged.
I'll build a nicer bed frame when I move to a larger place, thinking something along the lines of this but in walnut:
