CAR UPDATE….I know everyone is dying to know what happened last night, so here’s the answer: turns out I had a dead battery. How banal. Apparently the car’s onboard computer goes into bozo mode when the juice is low, which accounts for the peculiar behavior. A new battery is being installed as we speak, and in the meantime I’m now back at the computer and ready to blog. Anything going on today?
