Poker

Dom was the big winner, winning over a hundred bucks! It was definitely his turn ;) Sean, on the other hand, couldn't win a hand all night.

I started out really well, but ended up about $7 down. That's me - average! No complaints, though, I've previously had some very good nights.

Car Troubles

About 2 months ago, my 2003 Rav4 started making 'old car' noises. My problem is that I didn't have a mechanic that I could really trust. (I have trust issues.)

Anyway, long story short, I took a trip out with Sean to see his and Renato's mechanic friend. Remo was awesome - he showed me everything that was wrong and gave me a quote to fix it, and a loaner car (an old Pontiac minivan that Sean and I picked up from the auction lot) while he did the work. Total bill was just north of a thousand bucks, but the car is working AWESOME now - noticeably better and no noise.

Brake pads, rotors, water pump, belts, filters, fluids, rustproofing, etc.
