Car now has new battery. And, unfortunately, needed new tires, so I'm out quite a lot more than I expected. Fortunately, these days I don't live paycheck-to-paycheck, so the pain was bearable. Of course, in the process, I ended up with quite a bit less sleep than normal (had to not only stay up late to get the car there, had to get up early to pick it up, and slept quite badly in the meanwhile), so I'm very tired. Grump.
Ate Korean for the first time in my life. Was... Interesting. There will be futher experiments.
