Gettin' There

I'm in a sleazy muffler shop on Oakland road, where they're dicing up part of my catalytic converter to replace it with another length of pipe.

This is the second sleazy muffler shop I've tried. The first one was mostly outside - this one at least has concrete floors.

Though I left the first one mainly because no-one could be bothered to pay attention to me.

I don't know why, but I really like places like this. They're real, in a way standard offices can't even approach. And I've always liked the smell of arc welding.

So yes, I've at least started one of the things I wanted to do today. Not exactly in the morning, mind you, but it looks like they'll be done taking a sawzall and welder to my car within a half hour.

Then I can got get my new tires, and hopefully be done with auto maintenance for a couple of months.

I'm sadly going to have to start considering getting a new vehicle. I'm quite fond of my little gay Escort, but the repairs are starting to pile up...

arc welding ... one good memory, one geeky trailer:
my grandpa had an arc welding rig
JJ Abrams seems to think he's making a Christmas release movie about arc welding
