A few late night musings from Kat while on the road.
Automatics suck. I’m sorry. It’s just that simple. I have apparently crossed that invisible border in most manual drivers’ lives where they just can’t go back to an automatic anymore. Seriously. Everytime I get into a rental car, I tell myself that maybe this time, the automatic transmission will be different. It’ll be better. Instead, I wind up disappointed every time. We’re not talking sucky Malibu Maxx type cars, either. This week’s car is a Subaru Tribeca. It’s a great car. The transmission sucks in it. It doesn’t know how to handle accelaration and gear ratios apparently. Either way, I’m already itching to drive a manual again.
Denver needs to get a good alternative radio station. One that can be heard everywhere in Denver. The Denver airport is up in the northeast portion of town. I work in the southwest portion of Denver. As a result, everytime I drive from the airport to my hotel or vice versa, I am stuck switching radio stations every 5 – 10 minutes because whatever meager station I’ve found to deal with is already fading out.
A harpist playing Nothing Else Matters by Metallica is actually quite good. Seriously. In my above mentioned radio station searching, I came across a radio station that was playing Nothing Else Matters, with a harp. I swear I’m not going crazy and yes, I took my meds.
Katamari Damacy is an evil game. Misty and Stephen are evil for telling us about this game. I played it late last night and all day today until I had to catch my flight. The songs are officially stuck in my head and I’m dying to get back home so that I can play it again. How do weird, quirky games l
It’s really late. I forgot that I just lost an hour flying from Phoenix to Denver. Welcome back to Daylight Savings Time. I’ve got to be up at 6am. I really should get some sleep. It’s going to be a long day tomorrow.
