Gettin things done  
I done canceled my ticket to Israel. Got a hefty fee but hey that's international travel. Now it's on to deciding where exactly I'm going within the next year. A few ideas on the table are:
  • Paris since I haven't been there for almost a decade and to visit Hannah
  • Japan some time early next year because it is Japan but I would have to find certain people with whom to go
  • London because I kind of have to go through there anyway since I have credit with British Airways?
Despite having canceled my JFK-TLV ticket, there's still the whole JFK thing. I COULD just not go to JFK because missing work for even a day is enough to make up for the amount that I won't be getting back, or I could decide about when to book a returning flight and spend something like a week in New York with family and Hannah and other friends. I think I deserve a vacation, anyway. Anyone around the area want to hang out some time after July 6?

I am also getting big repairs done on the car I'm currently driving - my late stepmom's Jaguar X-Type. Gosh I don't like driving it because it's big and gets 19MPG but I gotta spruce it up to sell it - because I'm going to buy a Prius!

Heck yes I have put down a deposit for a Prius which will be arriving within 3-6 weeks. Looking to get the #2 package (which has cute things like keyless entry and aux audio input and a reverse camera), and looking to get it in a bright color, preferably white (for safety reasons - most visible on the road). Now for a dude, a white Prius isn't especially a fashion statement. But heck I don't care, I'd really rather get 45MPG instead of 19MPG (with premium fuel). Sure, almost every other car you see in Marin is a Prius. That's a good thing.

'Sides that, I'm meeting cool new people and going cool new places. I'm probably sticking around in Marin for longer than I expected mostly because I like the job I'm at a whole lot. I'm making enough money that transportation shouldn't be a barrier for me, in my mid-20's, to be a social dude. And despite my plans to get a car, I'm looking to take the bus as much as possible as well. I took GG Transit into SF the other day and it worked like a charm. I also got to catch up on my video podcasts on the bus.

Back to work. Hooray!
