A busy afternoon

The Car: Doesn’t have ABS. Ferman Mazda cut their usual diagnostic fee in half because there was really very little to diagnose. So I called the insurance company and informed them that the car doesn’t have ABS. I also found out they thought it had an anti-theft system. Since I have no reason to believe this, I asked them to remove that discount as well. This means I might pay an extra $9/mo for car insurance, but it also means that I’m being honest and therefore (a) am doing what I ought to, ethically, and (b) will be able to get a claim approved in the future should that become necessary.

The Chocolate: Tell Bryony to stand well clear of the intercontinental trebuchet, DaveyP. I found Green and Black’s Organic 70% Cocoa at the local SuperTarget for $3.50 (£2). Of course, this means I will have to go buy some more Lindt 70% Cocoa for a proper comparison. The things I do for science!

The Stand Mixer: I ordered it as soon as I got home. It should arrive at the office December 23. I might not even be in town by then, but then it might come early.

BLACK!

    Judy will vouch for that stuff. :) I dislike the bitter dark but she loves it.

    That isn’t too bad a price – it sells for about £1.60/£1.70 here (about $3). If you like it, try the one with cherries in it if you can find it. It is pretty much the sexiest bar they do… If you like it but kind find the others, send an address in Dave’s direction and we’ll soon scupper the diet ;)

    By the way – black is definitely the good choice – woof!
