I think it's time to get a new bike. Mine is ten years old, has over two thousand miles on it, and it's wearing out. The tune-up and the new wheel will take care of what's immediately wrong, and I can keep it for a back-up. I could use a back-up right now, considering I'm not getting the old bike back until the 29th. Actually, I could have a new bike long before the 29th. Hmmm. Time to start shopping.
Picked up Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on DVD, and watched that tonight. (The latest Angel is still downloading.) I liked it better than the first one. Spirited Away is also just out, so I got a copy of that, too. Tomorrow or Friday for that, I think.
Still working my way through Master and Commander at lunch. I dunno. I don't much like Aubrey. I suspect I will like Maturin better, just because he seems smarter than just about every other person on the ship. I say seems, because so far all O'Brian has done with him is use him as a surrogate for the reader while the author explains in excruciating detail what, where, and how every piece of rope, wood, and canvas on the ship is used. Man, was Nutty ever right about that. I am liking the first battle, though.
Sigh, Angel still at only 84%. Have to watch in the morning. Now it's off to see how Wimsey is making out at the ad agency before I drop off.
