breaking and unbreaking

I managed to somehow be in the way of a small rock that was flying along I-40 and managed to put a small chip in the window of my dads truck. So thats two damaged windows in about two weeks. Somehow I managed to avoid ever breaking a window in about 17 years of driving, and break/damage two in less than a month.

Went over to Carrboro to check out Tommy Gun for one of there last shows (Geoff is moving to San Diego). Excellent show.

After words, I ended up helping a friend of a friend get their Mercedes 309 diesel truck started. Somehow the ignition switch had disassembled itself inside the dash, so much fishing around the dash and figuring out how the switch fit back together. But it eventually ran.

I break windows of all sort

I managed to break the passenger side window in my dads truck that I was borrowing. Not sure how exactly, it just shattered when I shut the door.

Any recomendations for window replacement in the Raleigh area? Campus area even better.


Per a discussion with margarita-5, I present a short
list of my “Best X Food In The Raleigh, NC Area”

Best Hushpuppies: Ole Time Barbecue.
Not only do they taste the best, they are free with the meal, and all you can eat. And I can eat a lot of them.

Best Sushi: Sushi Tsune
Pretty much everyone disagrees with me on this one, but I like it. Sushi Blues is probably second place.

Best Burger: Chargrill
That was easy. Mojoe’s in second.

Best Thai: Thai Villa
If you include RTP, I’d say the thai place in rtp whose name I can never remember. Helpful aren’t I?

Best Pizza: Capital Creations
In particular, the pesky chicken (chicken on a pesto pizza). Second place to Lillys.

Best place to get a pound or two of deep fried shrimp for lunch: Farmers Market restaurant

More as I think of them.
