Rachel got a new car! A 2009 Honda Fit Base Automatic – a distinct upgrade from the 1988 Toyota Corolla FX. The safety improvement is incredible, let along all the other modern features! The biggest problem was me forgetting my checkbook when we went to pick it up. The economy is definitely having issues though as we got this for a hundred bucks under invoice, which is fairly amazing for a Honda. Of course even the famed honda reliability has limits, my 95 accord had the front rotors warp fairly badly so I just had to get those replaced which was annoyingly expensive as they are press fit rotors which require extra effort. Anyway super happy with the fit, it’s fun to drive, exceptionally roomy (which is amazing given it is only an inch longer than the FX it replaces.) and generally awesome!
We participated in the 2008 San Francisco SantaCon this year and had a blast. We started at pier 39 with several hundred other santas and roamed the city from there, providing SF tourists with some good stories and holiday cheer. Many photos were taken, view a selection of them here in the Santacon SF Gallery. Enjoy the video clip of santas dancing at 4pm in a north beach club, watch it now! Don’t forget about going to Santacon next year.
