More dull car milage wibbling

Back on 7/1/2003, I posted that my car had reached 58,000 miles. Today it hit 80K.

So...50 weeks...22,000 miles. I'm not trying hard enough. Think I can go 3000 miles between now and 7/1/2004 so that I'm going around the Earth in a year?

Well, we missed Marcon, or that would have been a big chunk of the 3000 miles.

Want to go to Florida?

Want? Sure. Need? Not so much, especially if we're driving.

I'll be over Florida next month, on my way to Aruba. Not driving, though. I don't have an amphibious vehicle.

I don't have an amphibious vehicle.

Are you sure? Only one way to find out!

I'm sure.

FYI, you don't have to be a bastard all the time. If you feel like you're getting out of practice, I recommend ferret juggling.

I tried teaching them to juggle, but they just weren't any good at it.

I recommend you get them a hedgehog, and see if they can find the toy surprise inside. Test their learning curve.

Actually, I was just explaining to Jim the other day that they are capable of learning. Sugar is figuring out different tricks to try to get treats from me and Q, or to steal treats from the other ferrets. The other ferrets are learning how to thwart her tricks.

They'll be using tools next. It's scary.

If only they had thumbs.

Wait, I'm sure Rick has tried to bite off thumbs before. So it's only a matter of time until he has some.

You might want to make sure 25K isn't a magic auto-insurance-rate threshold first. Or rather, you should determine the price you're willing to pay for nifty milestones first. :-)

Yeah, I wasn't exactly serious. I expect that I'll go another thousand miles, or even maybe 1200, but 3000 would involve a serious road trip.

Choose an easier latitude
Hey, stop being so equator-centric, it's not equitible to the nortically inclined and you wouldn't wan to be non-PC. If you pick an easier latitude you have been around it once already... 8-)

Re: Choose an easier latitude
Aah, a comment from Nanook of the North. You're just jealous that you no longer live south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

But a note for the latitudinally challenged: it's a freakin' globe! A sphere! (Okay, well, it's an oblate spheroid, but I digress.) Assume we're going 'round the long way when I say 25K miles, 'kay? *noogie* 8^)

Re: Choose an easier latitude
Well, arn't we all awash in the dystopic practicality...

I prefer any short-cut that Pointcare cares to offer...

(Now I am just being unnecessarily obscure... but I enjoy that sort of thing... 8-)

PS Now that I can write PDF's, do you want a copy of my book for your PDA?

Well, aren't we taking our vocabulary out for a test drive...

I would love a copy of your book in PDF for my PDA, PDQ. Since we're moving, I've packed all of my books and I am totally out of things to read. It's driving me crazy.

The URL of the Book
The "cleverly hidden" URL of my book has been mailed to your comcast email address.
