Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Cha Ching....
So: Saturday morning was a dark-cold-pouring-rain-after-the-holidays-no-excuse-to-get-out-of-bed-before noon- kinda day. A true "read some of the stuff you got for Xmas, dammit !" kinda day (will post on these later).

This actually means - try to hide under the comforter from the cats between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00, and then make coffee, head to the study, and catch up on e-mail, blogs, and my Russian.

So...... I'm drinking coffee, surfing Car Max (максимум автомобиля - see? I was studying my Russian!!!) and fantasizing about a BMW 325ci, to replace the '97 Jetta with 72,000 miles on it, that's been paid for since 2000. (note - I take the Metro to work and this is the third Jetta I've owned - dating back to 1988 - yes, - I'm that old. )

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the current car - other than the fact that it's a '97.

While I was fantasizing a new car, the phone rang, and it was Kevin from the company that installed my windows last spring. You see, I got such "good" (read- really $$$$) windows, I could only afford to get the windows in the back of the house replaced last spring, but had the presence of mind to lock in the pricing to get the remainder of the windows in the house done during the next 12 months.

Wouldn't you know they would call while I was car shopping? During a downpour?

Given that my kitchen window was draining into a bucket, I quietly said "Yes, Please..." to Kevin and closed the browser to максимум автомобиля ....
