good news, the dealership cleaned the outside, so now it's all shiney. also i think it runs a bit better.
bad news, it ended up needing a new fan, and costing my 'rents $450. *gasp*
i was only late for work about 20 min, which was easy to make up.
i need a bath now. i want to just listen to some good music and soak away today. mayhaps i'll do a bit of reading while there... hmm... i wish i had a cd player for the shower/bath, that would be SO nice...
