In the Words of Brother Bob…

…who never once said, “Boo-yah!!”

My car is even now being fixed. The scary transmission is being replaced by one of joy and love. Really.
Ok – they initially wanted $1625.37 to replace the transmission. I, in the gentle, delicate way that I have, told them to perform biological impossibilities upon their grandmothers. Furthermore, I said, you can keep the car.

“whoa!” they replied. “Let’s not be hasty…let’s get the owner of the company on the line.”

Long story short — they are going to fix the transmission on the car as if it was under warranty –AND– they are letting me have a loaner car for the duration of the fix.

Chevy Cavalier (’97)
I like the loaner better than the stupid car that I am buying. Am now pondering the probability of Them letting me swap for the Metro.

In other news ::::

Talislanta game — large bonus points. Even if all the people, plants and animals are green, purple &/or lizard derived. Might be the guy running it though.

My game — first time DM. Running a 2nd ed. Al-Quadim adventure. Have everything all ready, getting PC character submissions evaluated. Nervous as hell. But still…looking forward to it.

Am also considering putting together a Friendly Get-Together Nite @ the Hoose once or twice a month; weekly if it turns out well. I’d prefer that the nights be for things like Scrabble, Clue, poker, gin, canasta, Monopoly and etc. Maybe some of the Cheap-Ass Games too. I like the idea of friends, family showing up and playing games and eating popcorn. *ponder, ponder*
