Frank is back in good health.  
My "Car of the Future" (Frank) almost exploded a radiator yesterday - 8 hours of work, about $750 of repairs, and two massive headaches later, the oil and coolant leaks are fixed - and I have new radiator. I have now officially paid more in repairs for this car than my family paid to buy it. I have to convince my dad to trade the title to me, so that the next time something breaks, I can trade it in for a newer car.

1. What's the most daring thing you've ever done?

I have no idea. The notion of "daring" has little weight to somebody

2. What one thing would you like to try that your mother/friend/significant other would never approve of?

A vision quest of some kind.

3. On a scale of 1-10, what's your risk factor? (1=never take risks, 10=it's a lifestyle)

5 - I take calculated risks, and find this question silly.

4. What's the best thing that's ever happened to you as a result of being bold/risky?

I got into a good college, and it has kept me alive a number of times.

5. ... and what's the worst?

Um, dating. Fuck off, nameless Friday Five person! Fuck off, says I!

I will get back to scheduled meme-slinging as time permits.

oh my. I positively hate cars. they just announced but have not yet issued a recall on my car, and 1.4 million cars of the same brand/year, for ignition switches that can start the car on fire.

Sounds like a big puddle of fun!

Why is it the car of the future again?

Damn it, I want my flying car.

No analog switches, pseudo-futuristic interface designs, and engineers were dumb then.

First, you will need your flying/driving license.

No, no...I get the license when the vehicle is acquired.

I am fully aware that if a flying car is ever invented, your husband will just have to mop up the floor wherever he happens to be standing, and pick it up on its way home.

Until then, no driver's license?

Not unless we a) move away from the busline, or b) acquire a vehicle of some sort.
