More Haste, Less Speed

I decided that I should go ahead and get an oil change 200 miles early becuase I'm about to head off on a 1500-mile road trip to Oregon and back, so I stopped by Jiffy Lube on the way to work. The good news was that they were not busy and I went right in, and that I had qualified for a half-price oil change through their frequent-buyer program. The bad news was that the rear differential and automatic transmission fluids were also both due for changing. With a long trip ahead of me, it seemed prudent to go ahead and do those changes. With the discounts, the total damage was under $200, but I still wish I could have spread the charges over a longer period of time. Money is going to be very tight for me for the next week or two. It's probably just as well that I'm not going to be at BayCon.

I still had to be in the office today, as there were things that needed to get cleaned up. At least lunch was free: I cashed in that ticket to the A's-Giants game for a free Round Table Pizza on the way to work.

Now to get things here into shape so that I can leave them be for three weeks. I'll be using these computers, of course, albeit remotely from Oregon.
