Much eye candy at Starbucks, though. The Pear Ave branch is a magnet. Used to be the El Camino @ Monte Vista was, but lately the pickings have been obese. And old. Like me. :-(
Started the day at Magnusen Toyota, was shown the Costco price for a 2008 Corolla LE - $200 over invoice, but they gave me the most amazing BS about my trade-in that I stomped out in a huff. The idiot salescreature had the audacity to say that the new paint job decreased the value of the car, and offered the same usurious $2k as Sunnyvale Toyota did before it was painted. After showing me that low trade-in bluebook was $3800. Sheesh.
I am thinking that one car = 3 trips to Thailand. Or 2 trips to Thailand + 2 trips to the UK. The car works fine, why buy a new one? I think I'll drive it till it dies. But first I think I'll look into consignment or "cash for used cars" places.
Plans for tomorrow:
Maybe go to the movies for matinée, except I don't think there's anything playing I want to see in the theaters.
Bike? Nah, too hot.
Relax. Yeah, that sounds good. Domino has become a lot more affectionate lately, and it's no longer rare for her to sit on the left arm of the easy chair while Pumpkin commandeers the right arm. Makes it tough to reach the remote, but I'm willing to suffer.
