The Ongoing Distraction

Posted by Dirck on 11 April, 2012

I’ve but a moment today, because I am at last finalizing the new vehicle purchase I’ve been on about since February.  I find that I can get a bit of a bargain through the car-selling wing of The Regular Job’s diverse aspects, but it has necessarily been a slow process.  Yesterday, the people needed and the vehicle were all in the same city, and one would have thought that would finish the matter.  However, the fellow representing the car-selling branch said this:

You should just take it home overnight, drive it around, make sure it’s what you really want.

Isn’t that a rare development?  Free use of a rather expensive pile of carefully machined parts!  That statement came very near the end of the lunch hour otherwise taken up with discussing the matter, and thus the rather short and arcane entry.  Terry Pratchett fans will have gotten all the references, of course, and while I will leave Borrowing to terrifyingly powerful and (hopefully) fictional witches, I do have the necessary powers to borrow a vehicle.

Although… that degree of responsibility makes me nervous.  “Nah, I’m not buying this one.  Someone set fire to it last night.”  In any event, this whole affair should be squared away in the next day or so, and I’ll be able to concentrate on the important things in life; pellet cups and sac nipples.

Today’s pen: Parker 75 Insignia (hey, I got my page written in less than a week!)
Today’s ink: Quink black
