It amazes me when people are surprised at different time zones. I can't even count the amount of people that are flabbergasted when they call and I tell them it's only 7:00 here. I've even had people get *mad* about it. They get pissed off if the person they need to speak with doesn't get in until 7:30 or 8:00. I'm always tempted to return the snideness and ask what time they start their day... but so far, I've refrained.

The egg mobile finally went into the shop. Luckily, it didn't cost as much as I had been fearing. It did effectively cancel my vacation plans though and my car is still running a bit rough. If the trade-in amount for the Chevy wasn't so pathetic, I might have considered moving up my plans to get a new vehicle. But as long as my piece of $#!t will last until the dental work is done, I'll wait.
