As I was leaving work tonight the Check Engine light came on in my car. Bah. Last time it came on it went off after a little while. When I called the dealership and they said that it was probably just a false reading due to the weather and I should ignore it unless it came on again. The light eventually went off tonight so I'm going to hope it was just weather related. That's a much more positive outcome than some expensive engine related problem.
I'm getting close to done with Christmas/etc shopping. I got three boxes in the mail yesterday and one today. Many more are yet to arrive. It's kind of frustrating that I shouldn't wrap the stuff I have for my family since I'm going to be flying and they prefer to be able to fully investigate everything you have with you these days. Sadly I couldn't find one of the things I was looking for tonight. I've seen them recently but dawdled ("He who hesitates is raped by capitalism" or so I hear).
I bought a new clock radio thing at Target tonight from dortz. It's bright orange and plays cds. Unfortunately according to the directions it gives up after about an hour (the alarm stops after an hour, I think that includes snooze time so if the alarm first goes off at 7am it will give up at 8am.) That's not really good enough for me, I need an alarm clock with much more dedication. It does have an interesting feature where you can have the alarm only go off on weekdays.
Generic s-video/vga converter and X-Box specific. I should really replace my monitor because it's been making some unpleasant popping noises recently. I'd like to get a 17" LCD screen but those are really expensive compared to CRTs still. It'd also be something of a waste if I do end up buying an iMac or something to replace my Cube sometime next year.
Oh, I also got my Psychopop Xmas Album in the mail tonight along with a christmas card from heidiz.
I think there was more that I meant to post, but it's getting late.
