Back To School Time

Waiting To Board The Bus, originally uploaded by macfixer.

  • I work at a college, and "the crunch" is most definitely upon us. This year is especially challenging because of construction, faculty and students coming back at the same time.
  • Mason is headed back to school on Tuesday, which means...I won't lie...someone's going to be looking after him. It's hard to work and watch after a bored kid at the same time.
  • My wife got some startling news from a recent doctor's visit. I'll update you more when we know for sure, but it's definitely bigger than the common cold treatment she went in for.
  • My summer was good -- got a chance to take a couple of weekend trips. I still have too much vacation time left over. Rats.
That's it for now. No, I never heard back from the "Car Talk" folks, other than an apology for not getting back to me. I'm now in "wait and see mode" and I'll go from there.

Holy Crap! I Submitted A Question To The "Car Talk" Guys! (UPDATE 2)

I was finally able to get through to a producer over at "Car Talk" and they said they'd call me back on Tuesday to get me all set up for Wednesday. This is mighty cool, since it could mean I'd be in the show by that weekend.

I'm so excited!

Holy Crap! I Submitted A Question To The "Car Talk" Guys! (UPDATE)

Car Talk emailed me back!

What's that? You have no idea what I'm talking about? Sheesh, I thought you guys were more faithful at reading this blog! Way back in June,
I submitted a question regarding one of our cars (I'm not going to tell you what I called about, because I want you guys to listen to the episode!) to the Car Talk line. Apparently, they liked what I had to say (must be all of my drama training from high school, thanks Mr. Kirby...) because they wrote back:
Hey, we got your call and we liked it.
Now...we need to talk to you further.  And then...maybe we can get your question onto Car Talk!

I'm so excited. I hope that I make it to the next round... I'll post more info once I get it...
