On the road again...

Went to the Table Rock fantasy faire. My gods, near thermonuclear heat, but it was nice enough. I feel the same way about the Table Rock faire that I feel going to a small independent retail store--guilty that I'm not taking more stuff home with me. But I'd never buy food, and the leather stuff is just a bit too pricey, the costuming tends to be either for women or very high-end men's garments (like these wonderful posh french-colonial jackets...gurgle, beautiful) So I ended up walking away with a complete set of "Bilge Pump Singers" albums, a pirate band. One of the members plays didjeredoo, not that this is a challenge, but it still makes me perky.

Butterfly has been letting me borrow her car--it drives pretty well, though it's a big beast and a touch difficult to steer, so I need to use two hands for the steering wheel. She's had this car for about two years, it's a pretty typical late 80's-style family sedan with cracked vinyl seats.

Today, owing to my unique ability to cause system havoc in cars, we discovered--after church--that the car has an alarm system. No evidence of this for two years, it certainly wasn't something the dealer mentioned, but here I try to unlock it with my copy of the key, and it starts honking uncontrollably.

This is so typical...

That unnaounced alarm seems to be a trait common in any car you're allowed to drive.

I seem to recall an alarm going off on the Diamante at random times, too.

Are not all alarms, by nature.. unanounced? Letting people know before they went off would depreciate the life of many an alarm.. it's 4 am. :/

The diamante alarm was designed to catch the polite thief. You can get into the trunk, but when you close it the alarm goes off

It also doubles as an alarm clock! I know you didn't want to sleep in past 4:00 AM...BEEP BEEP BEEP!!!

I still want to know what you've been doing to my car to make it scream so :)

This is way off topic, but Butterfly, could you email me at jschulze at myrealbox dot com? Wanted to see how you were doing with your shiny new.. completely legal copy there. Maybe you'd like to exchange homes or whatnot? I've been way to busy building lately.. :/
