So, two things are done today, sort of.

1. The stuff I was getting rid of is at the goodwill. Goodbye to the first stereo I ever had and to my Virginia Tech library chairs, all my albums and cassettes, I am now exclusively a CD collector. *sniff*

2. I bought another Ford Aspire.
2a. swartzdk is buying a '97 Ford Aspire in Norfolk, and I am paying him back for it when I get paid out from the insurance company. It has 56K miles on it. It has a radio. I think he said it's red, which is maybe good. Maybe drunk drivers will see me better.

Now I am packing like a fiend and a huge load has been taken off my mind. I am glad that my parents were so keen on me not making car payments, so keen in fact that they are helping me out in this way.

Now I need to find someone willing to drive me to Norfolk next Thursday or Friday. Anyone have some time to spare? Heh... :-/

At least the dang thing is a different color...

I could maybe drive down there Friday night if I were feeling craaaazy. And stuff. =)

if necessary, i am sure my parents will facilitate a stopover...

by that time i may be able to debate renting a car one-way, too... we'll see. but they can't drive the car up like last time. well, they are doing enough :)

Hmm, how long is that drive?

Re: Hmm...
Given a stop and sane speeds, 4 hours. The stretch between Richmond and DC is the part that inevitably causes trouble seemingly at any time of day or night in either direction.

Re: Hmm...
Urk, that's a bit longer than I was expecting. I'm off Thursday and Friday this week, but I normally drive Julie to and from work when I'm off and she is not (to avoid Dupont Circle parking frustration), and I was hoping Norfolk was a short enough haul (say, two hours) to go there and back during her shift. I could still do it if nobody/nothing else is available, though.

Of course, if you mean Thursday or Friday of next week, I work those days and the point is moot. I've had confusion with some people before over differing implementations of the word "next". I bet there's an rfc on this topic.

Re: Hmm...
There should be an RFC on the topic. I meant not the Thursday and Friday that are about to happen, but the ones after those. :) Oops!! Thanks for even considering it though. If nothing else comes up I bet it's not that expensive to rent a compact car one way. :)

Yay! I'm so glad the car stress has been taken alleviated!
And really how can you possibly go wrong geting the car you already know and love?
Both of the cars I've owned have been 1981 Toyotas, so I know about going with the known good thing :)

I'm so happy for you, this sounds like the best possible outcome.

Some people might think I am crazy, but I totally just did a happy dance in the living room.
Oct. 22nd, 2002 12:47 pm (UTC)
YAY!! I'm so happy for you!!!

*Joins in on the happy dance*

Also, congrats on getting that schtuff to Goodwill. That must be a huge load off.

Yay! That was very nice of swartzdk, and congrats
on your moving progress.

You could hitch a ride with the sniper... He seems to be comutting up and down I95 regularly. At this point he could probably use someone to split the gas costs.
