I went up to Berkeley today and had sushi with Sarah Lowe. It's nice to have people to see. We went and watched The Seven Samurai at a local theater afterward. I hadn't seen it before. It was quite good, though then ending was more than slightly abrupt.
But I guess that's kinda the point. It was a movie that emphasized realism over plot and pacing in several places, and I respect that, even when it's a bit frustrating.

The motorcycle thing turned out to be a problem of tools and enlightenment. I have acheived greater oneness with the vice-grip nature, and the shiny black oil is draining even now.

Shortly, clean shiny yellowy-brown synthetic oil will take its place. In the mean time, I believe I'll go have a burrito.

So there I was, in latex gloves, rubbing a specially-formulated oil-based lube onto the edge of a (prelubricated) filter to reduce entry friction...

And it struck me that to better understand the whole link between cars and sex that people seem to have, I should do less driving and more maintenance.
