I got tired of looking at seed catalogs and decided to check out a Nissan dealer the other day that had several 370Z's in stock. I was thinking the 370Z Sport when I went in but the Nismo isn't all that much more money, especially when you consider it's got all the goodies on it to begin with so you wouldn't need to spend anything on additional accessories or go-faster parts. Color choices are limited on the Nismo, so red it is. The 370Z comes in a black cherry and a metallic gray, both of which I like the looks of, but the red Nismo speaks to me. When the weather warms up I'll take another run up that way and take one for a test drive.
These are the new manual milling machines that just came in to the lab at the college. They're a Taiwan made Bridgeport knock-off but they look pretty spiffy in there - much better than the crappy cell phone picture would lead you to believe. I'm anxious to see what the rest of the equipment is going to look like. If I'm going to buy a fancy-ass sports car, I'm going to have to work a bit longer. With all the new machine tools coming in, I just might want to keep working whether I buy a car or not.
Biggest issue today, however, is going to be keeping warm. Looks like a record breaking day with the cold temperatures being forecast. If it's got to be cold, might as well break the record. Normal average for this time of the year is mid-thirties - far cry from these negative numbers. Just glad I don't have to work outside in this.
