I passed! I passed!

Good news for me and my car: earlier today I passed the bi-annual emissions test that the Department of Environmental Quality requires for cars in the Portland area. So now I have renewed tags good through November 2007.

Much better day than the last time I did the DEQ emissions test. That was January 2004. I did the test in the morning, went home, went to work that afternoon, and then learned that I was fired. First time in my life I got fired from a paying job. So I'm glad that there's no drama like that now.

Before the test, I treated myself to comics (back issues of Caitlin R. Kiernan's The Dreaming and Peter David's Fallen Angel) at Things From Another World in Milwaukie. My treat afterwards was from Krispy Kreme: a blueberry fritter and a really good key lime-filled doughnut.

In other news, beef jerky can get mold. I had some that my grandma Dorothy's caretakers had given me. I had been enjoying it. Now the mold is. So now the mold can enjoy that jerky in the trash.

Out later to watch the University of Oregon-Oregon State University football game. Play well, boys.
