Song mood: Just like Heaven by the Cure.
Last night was about getting caught up with sleep and I went to bed early. I walked in place for a while listening to Dervla McTiernan’s The Roommate, a Cormac Reilly novella. I listened to McTiernan’s The Sisters while I traveled from London to Paris and finished the book on my way back from Paris. Her stories take place in Dublin. I may yet listen to a Cormac Reilly novel.
On que for listening is Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Followed by The Science Fiction of Edgar Allan Poe, which is a collection of short stories and essays Poe wrote that deal with science fiction.
One more long day and two more short ones, and then I’m on vacation or whatever it is I’m calling it.
The new auto part is coming tomorrow. This time I talked with a live person. It turns out that the part I got before, not only did it not fit, but was not even the part that needed to be replaced. There are two sensors, one the crankshaft position sensor and the other the camshaft position sensor. Half of the online autoparts stores has the later as the replacement part for the former. So the bolt that I stripped was for the camshaft position sensor and I need to replace the crankshaft position sensor. I may have lucked out.
Still no clue what I’m going to do for my birthday. I’m thinking of getting a hotel in Lincoln and ordering a pizza by the Mellow Mushroom. It’s a thought, but I’m not really sure. I wish there were mountains or ocean that were two hours drive from where I live, I am in need of mountains and ocean.
I have my birthday book, yay, not that it matters. I think I need to write a lit of things that I will do next week that I’ll completely ignore. I will tell myself that I’m going to do these things, but I pretty sure they will be ignored. Which is okay, if something far more interesting happens. I should surprise some people and write out full murder mystery. I think if I did that, it would be I that had the heart attack from the shock.
So this is just me talking out what I’m thinking. Maybe I’ll do a Wild Safari Tour in Ashland, NE. I saw the website today and thought it may be a cool thing to do in the area. Anyway. I’m excited for all the walking and reading I will be doing soon.
