Doo Dah

I was going to go to the Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena on Sunday, but we had a Sunday School teacher's meeting so we missed it. That's one wacky parade. Whereas the Rose Parade is the classic grand daddy of all parades, the Doo Dah parade is a nonreverential black sheep of parades. There are all sorts of weird things to see there.

I'm still waiting for Lost and Battlestar Galactica to start again. Damn this writer's strike.

Saturday, I helped Andy move from his Downtown loft to Fullerton. We also stopped by his parent's place to pick up some more furniture in Monrovia. I helped him move for 12 hours. He needed a new place for his bride-to-be when they get married on March 22, 2008.

Andy was cool enough to give me his Xbox 360. Now, I have to get a HDTV, because I can hardly see the small words on my standard definition television. Already, my eyes are getting noticeably worse than before. I'm not sure what is better to get, an LCD or a plasma tv.

I had to get my Hyundai fixed too, because my "Check Engine" light came on. I replaced 2 O2 sensors and replaced my front wheel axle. It cost me about $400. They say I should get a head gasket job done too which would cost me about $900. The repair costs are starting to add up now that my Hyundai has over 100,000 miles on it. It still is cheaper than buying a new car.

I own a Hyundai too! I am currently at 79,000 miles. What should I be on the lookout for?

Hey Abbagirl,

Hyundai's are cool! Go Korean Pride!

I didn't have any real problems with my Hyundai before 100,000 miles. I want to drive it until I get the record for the most miles on a Hyundai.

Before, Sarah said that she had problems with the trunk lid not closing and the driver's side door handle breaking off. A couple years ago, I had to replace the front automatic window motors, both right and left side. I replaced all the belts, water pump, tires, and all the other things that require replacement at the correct intervals. My Hyundai has never let me down by stranding me anywhere. . .cross my fingers.

I like the sound of the Doo Dah parade!

How are you? I'll try to go to the Rose Parade and the Doo Dah Parade next year.
