Repairing the imac

Would it have killed them to make the broken hard drive slightly more accessible?

Long Night and Long Day

So we bought a new car, fixed the imac by replacing the hard drive, got a replacement part for the furnace and today the oven and television repair guys are coming. What is next?

-- Well, the oven repair guy just came. Of course, when he got here the oven is no longer locking itself and and making the F43 locked door shriek. He is ordering us a new controller and lock that should come in 10 days.

The television guy is yet to come. Eventually, this will all be done. I can't wait, then again I seriously worked till like 4am. Luckily, I enjoyed what I was doing to some degree.

This morning National Grid called because the tenants downstairs at Nonna's never transferred the electricity over to their name and they want me to let them in to shut down the power today - friday.

How can the tenants be so dumb to let this happen. They will have no heat. Tony told me they have known about this for months. He also said National Grid threatened to turn it off at the pole which I can't understand. Wouldn't that shut off electricity to the whole house?

Tonight at midnight is my birthday and I still have no plans/ideas. There was honestly nothing I wanted or wanted to do. I hope 34 doesn't suck.

Traveling to lockport

It was totally worth the trip back and forth to Lockport. First of all because the furnace is now fixed but secondly because I tot to order 24 smoked chicken wings from One-eyed Jack's on the way home. Even (e:terry) liked em and he does not even eat wings.

Noteslate - electro notepad for tiny

This thing seems like it has a lot of potenital for $99. I would totally replace paper with something like this - especially if it lives up to its 180 hour battery life.

NoteSlate is low cost tablet device with true one colour display, real paper look design, long life battery (180h !), together with very handy usage and very simple and helpful interface for pen and paper. This easy, compact and portable gadget is used anywhere you want to make any notes, drafts, sketches, any ideas for future reference. Paper for everyone! Write a note and check it later, save it, or delete it. Maybe send it after. Just one colour is enough to express the basics. Keep your life simple. You will love it. For $99.

Broken Everything

I was just saying how everything is broken on (e:leetee)'s journal. Today the furnace decided to shut down too. That makes a broken stove, broken tv, broken car, broken furnace. I seriously can't take one more thing.

At noon we get the new car. This is totally overshadowed by the lack of heat. Unfortunately, I can't get a hold of our friend that installed the furnace. Anyone know a good company I can call?

wood floor twist

I really like this twist in the upstairs bedroom floor. I have a feeling the floor under the current floor in the dining room and living room is something similar.

Old Malibu, new malibu; done

I can't believe they gave us $1000 trade in on the old Malibu. It has no dash lights, no heat, a rusting out falling off gastank and enough dings that I can't count them.

First we went to the Ford store. The focus felt crappy compared to our old Malibu. Then we were going to go see the Honda accords but I didn't want to risk the drive out to transit in our about to die heatless car so we went right to the Padlock Chevy dealer on deleware in Kenmore. My parents bought their cars there and suggested it.

Like 5 minutes after we got there we settled on a certified 2009 Malibu LS with 14,000 miles with perfect carfax and 4 year warranty. The inside was nice and roomy for 3 unlike the cobalt

I was determined to make it a one day shopping experience and I did it!

New Car Time

I need a new car. Our car is ten years old. We treated it like crap and its totally not taking it anymore. In fact I don't think we every washed the inside which at this point is like haunted house dusty.

When we bought it, it was the most expensive thing we had ever purchased. For like two weeks we treasured it and then we bumped it the first time. After that it was always like the red-headed stepchild car.

Unfortunately, this is the worst time of year to go car shopping. Especially, considering our vehicle drinks about 1 gallon of coolant per trip, even in this extreme cold.

I wish car shopping involved no haggling. It always makes me want to kill the other person when there is wheeling and dealing involved.

Mezza Restaurant

Mezza restaurant in the former Elmwood Soda shop location has some amazing food. I feel like this time it was even better than on previous visits. Their salads have the most delicious crunchy bits of pita and it is great for both carnivores and vegetarians.

I hope it breaks the curse on that location.
