Here are a couple of pictures taken last night (well, OK, early this morning) in my 2006 Scion xB:

I bought the car new on 12 September 2005. You do the math. :)

Cool! I play just enough dulcimer to know (1) that it's a lot of fun, and (2) that I wish I were better at it. Good luck with your study!

Generally leading the life of an itinerant musician, and simultaneously that of a programmer who has not always had short commutes. At various times, I commuted from Poughkeepsie to Irvington and Albany to White Plains, not to mention the regular trips to NJ and farther afield for gigs.

And in a couple of weeks, it's off to Princeton, IL for summer stock. Oddly enough, this car has never yet been to Pennsic.

Hey Marnen, why do you have pictures of your Scion clock?
Is there something I'm missing?

I'm getting really scared; less than two weeks till Rosalee's wedding and Tersha still hasn't finished my gown... *bites lip*

Oh, we watched "Into the Woods" tonight for movie night, you would have enjoyed it I think; Sondheim is just.. well.. Sondheim.

So I'll see you in a little bit, hope the gigs are going well..

Look below the clock. That's more significant.

I love Into the Woods -- I got to see it on Broadway, even. Never seen the film, though; how is it?

That's a lot of mileage! (At least I think it's mileage?) The movie is really great! It has Bernadette Peters in it, who is , in my opinion, one of the best "Witch" performers. The only thing that I found distracting about the movie was the constant clapping after each performer sang; I guess it was done live, but personally as a performer, all the clapping after each would ruin my concentration. Regardless, the acting and singing were very well done. I recommend it if you ever have the time.

I was glad to introduce the play to both Virgina and Shelly both had never seen it before.

I can sort of relate. My Civic Hybrid was bought in late November 2003 and has about 127,000 - 130,000 miles on it now. Not quite as significant as your's, but way higher than most people can believe. I make it through my hour-long commute to/from work with a stereo with a Bluetooth speaker phone (for unexpectedly receiving calls -- I try to avoid making calls while driving) and AUX input abilities. I've been using an iPod since the first, Mac-only, $400 model. Podcasts and Creative Commons music are so very useful.
