10/25/01 -- How's this for random? Today I called our Volkswagen dealer about an
idiot light that had come on, and he asked if my car was already in for service. I
said no, and he said there was already an Audi owned by an Eric Means in for service
there. Also, there was apparently an Erick Means who went to high school in Martinsville,
IN (where my grandma lives) the same years I went to high school. Coincidence? You
be the judge. ;)
Also, tomorrow is the Big Day, when we find out about JSF. Cross your fingers.
My knee is apparently just sprained, not torn or broken or anything. Doctor's
appointment to make absolutely sure on Monday, but it feels better, the swelling is
down, etc… phew.

10/23/01 -- I dislocated my knee last night playing hockey. Tip for those of
you reading this: don't dislocate your knee. It sucks. Fortunately it
popped itself back into place about 30 seconds later, but it hurt like a mofo for a
while, and now it's all stiff and swollen. Hopefully I didn't tear my ACL or anything
awful like that -- I have a doctor's appointment at 3 today to find out.

10/15/01 -- Okay, so the big news was that Jen and I bought a car. We wanted to
surprise people, was why no posting. We bought a brand-spanking-new 2002
Passat GLS. With the "luxury" package (sun/moon roof, etc). 5-speed, traction control,
about 30 airbags, nice warranties, in-dash CD and
cassette player, enough trunk space to hide an elephant… I love this car. It's so
much fun to drive it's insane.
