inspection, appletime

As I watched my car get inspected today, it occured to me that in the almost 20 years I’ve owned a car, I’ve never had a failed inspection. Keep in mind I’ve never owned a new car, and some of the cars I’ve driven have entered ghetto stage because of my inability/disinterest in fixing things that were slowing wearing out (present car excluded – perhaps I’m all growed up now). Is the whole car inspection thing a scam? How shitty does your car have to be before it fails? Just wondering.

I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new, shiny white MacBook. I’ve never owned a Mac, so this should be interesting. This was a big purchase, but it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for years. I have a late-90s IBM ThinkPad that works great for sitting in a coffee shop and posing. I mean writing. But as I travel more and more and as city-wide wifi approaches (thanks Bill White!), I decided it was time to move up to something a little more current. Since I have three or four short plays to write before the production this fall, perhaps my shiny laptop will give me a goose. I need one.
