What a day! I picked up my new/used car this afternoon - a 2008 Subaru Outback wagon - and spent more than 2 hours at the dealer's with the whole process. Knowing that it would probably take a while, I was prepared with handwork: sewing the 1-1/2" sleeve onto my SDA entry while I waited. Interestingly enough, all the males who worked or hung out at the dealership's showroom (including you-know-what male I live with) had a very clear idea of what this piece was about. ANd YOU? What do you think it is about? It needs a name. I have to send it off tomorrow because the postmark date is March 1. Unfortunately, March 1 is a SUNDAY and I don't know about SDA's post office, but MINE is CLOSED. So, if they don't take it, they don't take it. Why on earth somebody didn't look at the calendar for 2009 when the Surface Design Association was deciding on a postmark date is beyond me. I am not running to the post office by midnight tonight because my post office closed at 8:pm and doesn't open till Monday, which is past the sell-by/send-by date. Meantime, I did my bit this week for stimulating the economy (according to MLG, I spent enough for the entire state of NJ to sit back and relax). I bought a car, a new phone for the kitchen, and a digital camera for my grandson Josh's birthday. Even tuna fish for dinner every night won't make up for it - and we will get mercury poisoning, besides. March will be a very long month, starting with a forecast for snow. We'll see if the AWD will make life easier. Don't forget to drop a name for the above piece into the suggestion box!
