Car update: So it turns out I need *another* new radiator. Imagine my joy. Apparently, at some point over the last few days, I’ve had some kind of collision that bent my radiator into my air compressor. The bad news is that because this is external damage, the radiator’s lifetime warranty doesn’t apply. The good news, if it can be called that, is that my insurance will probably cover the repairs, even though I can’t remember running into anything recently. Grr.
One thing that has cheered me up a bit is reading about Eric the Eel, also known as Eric Moussambani of Equatorial Guinea. According to Yahoo! news, he “was given the nickname after swimming very, very slowly at the Sydney Games four years ago.” Apparently he was the belle of the ball and I’ve never even heard of him. But I am well amused anyway.
