I'll update later about the great time I had for Thanksgiving. For now, the latest:

Disadvantage of having an exotic late year performance car

Had smelled something bad toward the end of the big drive, so I swore I would check the fluids before we departed on the 700 mile return; did so this morning. The WRX was low on Manual Transmission Fluid. Damn. Quoth the guy at AutoZone: "Even if I knew what you needed, I probably wouldn't have it; even if I had it, I probably wouldn't sell it to you". Apparently, despite it being the hot tuner car of the moment, Subaru isn't releasing any of the information about stuff like the fluid. My manual just tells me to only use the same stuff as is in there; it was the guy's bet (backed by $$) that it is some crazy synthetic. And if I put the wrong stuff in there, Bad Stuff. And, probably, if I drove it too much without enough, more Bad Stuff.

So, I'm at Dartmouth, doing work. There is a dealership about a mile from my parents' place, and they'll be open tomorrow morning. Ugh. The code I've been working on for work may be important for the latest Paper (Thursday deadline). Have a problem set I'm almost finished with, due Tuesday. Have a final project paper, and presentation, on Thursday.

And corvisdog is no longer barking at my Dad.

If I had called, would you have even bothered to meet us?

It all depends on the when and where, which as I pointed out, I was never informed about.

Of course it depends. You didn't particularly schedule yourself around my no-show, either. I would actually feel bad if you had.

Remind me again how I should schedule my time when you never told me anything at all about when and where anything was happening?

I fly a thousand miles, drive to Philly, and it depends?

Your arm wasn't broken, Geoff. You could have shown some incentive and called me.

Well, given that I know nothing about the parameters, it is hard to say much. I suspect that there wouldn't have been any problems, but I have nothing to go on.

I could have called you... if I had your number. Your cell-phone isn't listed on your web page.

I can also choose to turn that around and ask, you flew thousand miles, and drove to Philly, and you didn't consider calling?

I'll also point out that I didn't have net access at home at that point, so it is immaterial what contact info is listed on your web page.

daemonv has my number. He also has reticello's number. You could've gotten either from him.

Exuding negativity isn't going to get you very far, Geoff.

Which doesn't really matter given that neither of you wanted to hear from me anway.

Try living my life.
