in exchange for homemade stir-fry, i took tiff out to teach her manual transmission. after 2 hours in the parking lot, she drove home, so i'd call it a success. i'm either a good teacher or it's damn easy to learn to drive stick on the aspire. probably more the latter.
now i'm here at work and there's a moderate amount of work to do, i have a 3am and 5am maintenance, and i got in early. my feelings on the Obvious Topic are pretty much summed up today by frankensteela.
