ex machina

ending what quite possibly could be the longest, most drawn out purchasing decision in the history of purchasing decisions, kris and i bought a new car today.

and the final decision will surprise anyone familiar with the whole ordeal that's coming up on a two year anniversary. it wasn't the toyota highlander which had been a top contender. nor was it the subaru forester . and despite our brief flirtation buying american, we didn't end up with the saturn vue . you didn't really think i was going to get the ford f250 diesel, did you? no. these and all other contestants fell by the wayside and were felled by a late entrant.

we're the proud new ownwers of a jetta tdi wagon . that's right, it's diesel baby! and it holds the promise of getting over 700 miles to a tank.

i gave up a little leg room [ at over 6 foot 4 this is no small compromise ], but i'll trade leg room for biodiesel and "chipping" engine mods. whoohoo!

i might wait on printing up the tdi club business cards . then again.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
