Under Construction
San Francisco Gay Pride Parade

Have Any Passengers
A long day, but a nice lunch at a pretty good restaurant near Jack London square, the check picked up by another group at the office to thank us for our brilliant and undying efforts on their behalf.

That's it? Lunch?

I did get a call on the car today. The CD changer was being installed and the salesman called to let me know it's mounted under one of the passenger seats. I was wondering about that. Didn't want to lose any cargo space what with the mounds of crap I'll undoubtedly be ferrying between here and wherever it is I might be going. I probably don't need a CD changer, but it's one of those things you want whether you really want one or not; whether they work worth a damn on the road or not. I have no idea if I'll ever again buy another (new) car. Get it now, cause you ain't gonna get it later.

Who gives a fuck about your CD changer?

Well, it's been a difficult dull day that went by in the flash. Yes, I did get a call from the salesman today, yes they were installing the device even as we spoke. My guess is this is a well thought out tactic in their sales plan in an effort to keep my blood pumping. I made a partial down payment with a credit card and I guess I could get out of the deal if I really wanted so they're covering their bases: Keep the customer excited. I don't want to get out of it. I'm looking forward to driving this weird looking metal box to wherever it is I'm going to be driving it to on these coming long weekends, camera beside me, wind blowing through the moon roof that is conveniently located over the back seats and the cargo area. Why locate a moon roof over the back seats and the cargo area when I rarely have any passengers?
