I definitely know Eastern Time!

Car-based errands this afternoon, done in a great circle route through Southeast Portland: dropping off donated goods (books, toys, cushions, videos and such) at Goodwill, stopping at an ATM, shopping at Music Millennium (I bought the Patton Oswalt CD with his routine about TiVo), getting quick groceries at Fred Meyer (I almost wrote "making groceries," like a New Orleanian would say), and getting a haircut.

Goofy thing for the moment about my new-to-me car: the radio refuses to let me adjust the hour on its clock. It will, however, let me adjust the minutes. I can't yet figure out how to adjust the hour (and the instructions are especially opaque, even for stereo instructions), and the hour's three hours ahead of here. I finally decided "the heck with it, for now" and left it three hours ahead. The car's ready for whenever I drive it to the East Coast!
