Back to the apartment

I’m back to the Pine St apartment for my second weekend here.  A lot still needs to be done to get it in order.  I’m glad I took the extra day off last week to get it in a somewhat livable shape.  I’m just hoping I can sell the items that need to be sold soon.  Which reminds me, I need to list them on Craigslist first.

I returned the Mazdaspeed6 a little while ago.  *sigh* I will miss it.  It was a great car, certainly one of the most unappreciated sport-sedans in the market.  Rocking fast, accelerated quick, spacious, good sound system, decent nav located in the best place a nav could be.  The transmission was rough, especially for novice drivers, but that’s the point, right? It had a smooth ride, and (atleast to my eye) looked great. Goodbye GKV3747

I am, however, looking forward to 2 years with the MINI.  Welcome, Big Red.

Upgraded Wordpress

I upgraded the blog engine to WordPress 2.6.1.  As usual I started with a little trepidation. I couldn’t remember how to access cPanel on my site, and was unsure about how to back up the posts, etc etc.  But true to their word, WordPress is easy to upgrade!  Just follow instructions here and bam!  Awesome.

I stayed in today, and watched some Olympics.  In years past, I remember watching a lot more than I have this time around.  I give credit to the state of flux in my housing sitation for that.  However, things are (*fingers crossed*) somewhat settled now.  What has struck me the most about these games is how young some atheletes seem to be.  Notwithstanding the controversy surrounding the Chinese gymnasts’ age, a ton of others are between the ages of 15 and 18.  Maybe I’m just really old.  *sigh*
