Well, we could always talk about how no one has submitted anything for the next Crap Writing Group, being as the deadline is Tuesday.

Humanity i love you
because you would rather black the boots of
success than enquire whose soul dangles from his
watch-chain which would be embarrassing for both

parties and because you
unflinchingly applaud all
songs containing the words country home and
mother when sung at the old howard

Humanity i love you because
when you're hard up you pawn your
intelligence to buy a drink and when
you're flush pride keeps

you from the pawn shops and
because you are continually committing
nuisances but more
especially in your own house

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it's there and sitting down

on it
and because you are
forever making poems in the lap
of death Humanity

i hate you

I love my nerd wife.

So Jen is in the ER tonight.  She is on a 24 hour shift and won't get home until tomorrow at 10 AM.  She just called me a minute ago, its 1:45 AM.  This is the conversation:

Ring Ring.

Me:  "Forget something?"

Jen:  "Yes, you know in Star Trek, when Kirk has this impossible situatio...

Me:  "Kobeyashi Maru"

Jen: "Yes, thanks."

Me:  "That it?"

Jen:  "That's it"

Google wants to call it "Kobayashi Maru", not "Kobeyashi".


.. but then again, nitpicking that is missing your point by a large margin. I approve of this star trek female.

I'm Bobomir on Eoner. I've got the backpack, a 6-slot, an 8-slot, and a 6-slot ammo bag. So I can take one more bag for sure, then whatever's better than what I already have.

So, new topic: cars and car salesmen.

[blog]

Christy and I went to a Honda dealership yesterday (not buying yet, just looking), and we test drove a Pilot, a CRV, and an Element.  I honestly wasn't a big fan of the Element (they look odd), but when I drove it I was really surprised.  Amazing headroom and crazy legroom in the back seats, storage space everywhere, the back seats fold up so you get a full cargo bay in back...plus instead of carpet it's got a rubberized floor.  I'd imagine that would be pretty good for babies, since you can just wipe things right up or sweep them right out the door.  Hell, the seats are waterproofed, so that's even better.  So when we go to buy, that will probably be what we get.

I was reminded again of my plan of action when we go to buy a car.  We were dealing with this really nice lady who showed us all the cars and was very personable.  Only thing wrong with her was a tendency to say things like "Yeah, that's cool, but not as cool as the new truck we have coming out!  It has a trunk in the bed!"

We finish test driving, then we go back in to get some brochures.  The lady brings over Doug.  Doug is the salesman who crushes people's hands because he thinks it will get him more money on the sale or something.  We had mentioned that we would be trading in my pickup, but that we didn't drive it there (on purpose).  He gave us the classic "Is there any way that you could bring it in, just so we could give you a good deal on your trade-in?  We've got great incentives right now!"

No, Doug, I'm not giving you my truck so you can hold it hostage and pressure sell me.  I'll buy my car when I'm good and damn ready, Doug.  Goodbye, Doug.

When I go to buy, Christy and I will take separate cars.  We will have already taken the truck to several places to see what they'll give us for it, and will have found out what interest rates the bank will give us on loans.  I will give the salesman what is very clearly a spare key to the truck, and let him price the trade-in value for us.  

After he gives me a value on the truck and tells me what he'll sell me the Element for, along with financing, I'll tell him that we're going to head home to crunch some numbers.  If he tries to hold the truck, I'll let him know that we'll just head home in Christy's car and report it as stolen property.  After that, we'll head home and crunch numbers.  We'll call him to let him know what our offer is.  If he's not okay with that, we'll let him know that we can find another dealership nearby.

[/blog]

After the last time I bought a car, I'm not going to get suckered with bullshit.  I really hate car salesmen and I've heard too many recent horror stories to not be prepared for it.

Jibble, I know next to nothing about car buying - I've never heard about this holding-your-vehicle-hostage stuff. Do they really do that? Because that's appalling. What's their rationale and how can they get away with it? What are they doing with it that they have to have it for any length of time?

When I bought my car I did it online. I found the best price through autoweb.com, then we called around and talked to car dealerships and found that the price I got, which was some kind of wholesaler price I think, was lower than what we would have paid walking into a dealership. When we told the dealer how we were buying it (through autoweb.com) it was handled like a wholesaler, so there was no haggling or anything like that. Pretty easy to do, and I'd do it that way again.

Having car shopped in texas, yeah, they do that. Pretty much all the damn time.


But I've never spent longer than 2 hours from first walking in to driving off the lot in my new car. I dunno if i'm just lucky or what, but It's knowing what you want, and walking at the first sign of bullshit.

I've heard all kinds of crazy stories about it, and had the displeasure of experiencing it to a small degree at a Mazda dealership back in College Station.  Their rationale is the same as that of torture...hold someone long enough and they're bound to snap and just buy the damn car to get away.

For the sake of amusement:

The last time I bought a car, I paid cash.  The guy tried to go up from the sticker price.  He asked for an extra $100 after I wrote the check.  Fucking jackass.

So, any thoughts on tonight's Oscars? I've only seen one of the films nominated for Best Picture. I went and saw "The Aviator". I liked the film, DiCaprio gave a hell of a performance, but I must say that I don't think it was Scorcese's best work, and probably not the best picture of the year. Scorcese does so many different things in his pictures with the camera and the narrative, and I just didn't see that in this picture. It was probably his most "accessible" film.If he does win (and I want him to), it will definitely be for his body of work, and not specifically for this picture.

Yeah, that's what I wondered. I don't understand why you have to turn your vehicle over to them at all before you actually sign the papers to buy the car. I don't know enough about the car buying experience to know what's going on there and why they need it. They have to actually take it somewhere else for the appraisal process or something?

We have Oscar parties every year with about 20 other people.  Lots of food and winning dvd's with answers to movie trivia make the long show more enjoyable.

I'm Bobomir on Eoner. I've got the backpack, a 6-slot, an 8-slot, and a 6-slot ammo bag. So I can take one more bag for sure, then whatever's better than what I already have.

I have a  bunch of silk right now, so I'll send a couple over to you.

Just buy a Saturn, Jibble - it mostly does away with the bullshist.  I say mostly because when I bought mine, I was trading in my pickup and they tried to tell me that my truck had been in an accident.  I bought it new, straight off the lot when it came in, and no it hadn't been in any accident.  "Well, our guy noticed a line where some tape had probably been put down to paint."  So?  "Well, they usually do that when they're repairing a car."  And they don't do it for custom paint jobs?  I bought this truck off the lot next door, which had been customed by the dealer for the showroom.  What say we go over there and ask them?  "Well, ok, well....ok, ok.  Well, here's what we can do."  Back and forth a little ping-pong, and it was resolved.

Oh, and lwf - yeah, I have plenty written.  I just have to choose what fits the theme the best and what I want to submit.  I might seriously do a WoW fanfic - I was not joking.  I need that intervention.
