Holy molee what a difference some new strut mounts do for my car! So I took my car in to a VW dealership that I've dealt with a couple times before, and really didn't like. Got there at 7:30, which was quite the change of pace, as usually I would have been at work already. They took it in right away, so that was cool. About an hour later the guy came over and told me that the knocking yesterday was most likely ice built up where my strut mounts should be, and that the mounts were 70% gone. So it was a good thing that it was really crappy cold and snowy Sunday night, otherwise I may not have been aware of the problem until the mounts failed altogether and my struts shot right through into the engine bay! I always thought that my car was bouncy through pot holes because it has sport suspension (stiffened suspension). Boy was I wrong! What a fantastically smooth ride over train tracks and through pot holes and so on! On top of getting new mounts, and a repaired tire, total out of pocket cost was $0.00!!! See, I bought my car certified, so even though the partial warranty had long expired, the certification is still good, so overall what would have been $6-700 in parts and labor was free for me today!!! YAY! Double YAY! Hot diggidy damn yay!

Work was just busy enough at the office to make the hours fly by. Plus, I didn't get there until 10:30, so that may have had something to do with it too... Job two, however, was slow as molasses in winter. Two drivers, three deliveries in four hours. Monica wants me to make up some of the hours I lost last night, and that's okay with me, at least I don't have to close tomorrow, just work the dinner rush. Plus, everybody is getting new coupons in the mail tomorrow, so that should help at least a little bit.

The only shows worth watching tonight are over, and I can't watch them until they are online. But the X-Files movie was released on DVD today, as well as Wanted, both of which I am itching to see! So my shows might have to wait until the weekend. One more thing I miss about not having cable, no dvr, boo. Why should getting cable have to do with your credit? Even if you have good credit, they still take your stuff if you don't pay the bill, so what's the difference? Oh well.

On that note, I'm going to see what is available to watch online, and bid this post ado. I hope you all had a good Tuesday, and I love those of you who read this and are related to me. To all the rest, I don't love you, but that doesn't mean I dislike you! And to those I do dislike, good riddance!

Well, since I already knew about your car, I guess I really don't have much to say, but I can't leave you just hanging around wondering whether anyone had read your blog, so here I am, helping lower your stress level. Happy Wednesday!
WEIKI! (looks Hawaiian, huh?)
