[#] [2]
great news! i just sent toyota trixie's last payment, a year earlier than expected! trixie was my last (and largest) debt: i financed $22,500 for her in 2001 and still had about $17,000 to pay off when i moved to portland, so i am very glad to have that over with! (is it too disloyal to be lusting after the new priuses after just paying trixie off? though i doubt i'll ever be able to afford a new car again.)

this comes on the heels of my third californiaversary yesterday, the annual celebration of the day i fled san diego and began my journey north to portland. many thanks to my upstairs neighbor jennifer, dan norton, my cousin nikki, the getty, ben, leeann & dean for harbouring me during my exodus. sunday will mark my portlandiversary, the day i arrived in portland to find michaelmas, amelia & a plate of warm cookies waiting for me.

unfortunately, these significant events were dimmed by slicing my finger open while making soup tonight. i bought a ceramic slicer, but it mistook the tip of my index finger for a carrot and i was still bleeding an hour later. i am typing this with my middle fingers.

hmmm, maybe an ironed grilled cheese sandwich will make me feel better. :)

Comments:
Congrats on getting Trixie all paid up -- that is such a good feeling, isn't it. (now take those car payments you were paying and put them in the fund to fix the car -- well, it's not quite that bad, but sometimes it seems like it.)

That ceramic slicer looked dangerously awesome. We have a ceramic vegetable peeler that I can't do without -- I'm never going back to metal again. I am going to hide the next Chef's catalog from Scott -- he'll want to buy that slicer. (and we have no more room to put stuff until we get rid of stuff. I think he has some sort of disorder when it comes to buying kitchen stuff! but then, sometimes he does get something that is just soo cool, like the ceramic peeler.)

word verification: rkjje -- I kept wanting to type "rilke" for some reason.
 
i'm hoping as a charmed prius it won't have any problems ever until it decides to expire with a little sigh at about the same time as we buy a new flying car. :)

i wasn't impressed w/ that slicer even before it bit me; it did poorly on tomatoes & mushrooms, barely managed an onion, and its hand guard is a joke. if my dad gets me another gift certificate, i might get the oxo, but none of the slicers look like they handle small carrots well...
