The new car has plates, but not the ones we wanted as the old plates are still in Betty's name for reasons we haven't figured out yet. (We had the registration and plates changed when we bought the Isuzu from her, but promptly got NC plates as insurance rates there were better at the time.)

Since he wanted to get plates today (the temp tags are good for another month), we have fugly green-sky plates for the Thunderbird. I am not so happy about it, but we compromised and he's agreed not to cover the back in bumper stickers again, which I think looks like ass. (No offense meant, mountain_hiker.)

After our in-town errands (DMV, gas, and acquiring a new scraper/brush) we headed down to Robert's grandparents to pull the stereo and other items we left from the Isuzu, only to find it wasn't there. We left a message and decided to hit the Asian markets at Alameda Square in search of that adzuki bean ice cream I've been craving since August.

An hour and a half later, we went off in search of dinner with a quart of ice cream, three flavors of Pocky, a bag of milk candy, several pairs of plastic chopsticks to keep in the car and assorted seasonings and sauces to restock what I'd depleted in attempting to cook gonzo-style.

Laurel was napping when we got home, but when she woke up and heard "Pocky", she was all sweetness and affection until she was ready for bed a few hours later. She'll be even happier tomorrow when she finds out we got her a jar of sliced pickled ginger -- and when we finish it, we've agreed the 3-gallon jar at Pacfic Ocean International Supermarket is our next stop.

I'm only partway through picking and prepping the best <40 photos from October to put up on oddharmonic.org. Immediately after answering my sister's call asking how long until they'd be up, my brother said "you can take photos of my car I'm selling as soon as it's back from the shop, right?" There's no way I can say no since the other *good* digital camera (the HP 612 new to me last Christmas) is down at my sister's and if I do say no, Dad will Catholic guilt trip me into it anyway. Expect to see a blurb mentioning a 1991 Acura Integra for sale in denver in a few weeks.

Hehe. I like the "That was Zen, this is Tao" sticker. :)

It's from Northern Sun, as were all the bumper stickers on the car at the time I took that photo. I later covered the Nobody for President sticker with a "Native" sticker from Colorado Mountain Stickers; we have another copy for the new car and are debating getting a complementary one that says "Save An Elk / Shoot A Land Developer".

Oh, Sarah Vowell's on? Dammit. I'll have to make sure I watch it on Comedy Central then. She's dreamy.

Yep. She was plugging the paperback of The Partly Cloudy Patriot.

Oh, was it a rerun, then? Or was it just where she was on to "plug" the "book", where it's more "Hey, let's have Sarah Vowell on! She's dreamy!"? Cause the paperback's been out forever, and it is awesome, also. Cause I like how Conan will get guests. Like how occasionally TMBG will be on, say, plugging No!, even though it came out, what, last year?

I think it was a "plug" since Will Ferrell was the first guest and he was plugging Elf (which opens sometime this month).

Any excuse to have TMBG on is good enough for me. (:

Oh yeah, I'm not complaining by any means. It's awesome that they do that. Conan rocks.

Or rather, his booking agents do.

Well, he does also.

Goddammit, I forgot it was on until 7pm. Which is exactly 1 hour after the show starts. Sumbitch.
