Oh, humanity, you tricky beast. M.s. and I are reviewing hotels for our little weekend getaway in L.A. I've narrowed it down to six, and he is reading customer reviews. In the past, I would just find one and book it. This research thing is new for me, I'm still feeling it out.

Today I'll be picking up my car from the shop. Those guys at Smitty's are awesome. Honest, cheap, effective, good, and most of all, friendly. I will totally be taking my car back there to be serviced in the future (thank you to Carol for the referral!)
What's today, Tuesday? I've got a lot to do, cleaning and typing and fetching my car, but fucking A, I love that I am able to do it all on my own time. There's something to be said for setting your own hours.
