Prius turned over 1000 miles today. Squee.
Gave it its first bath, too; I park it in an enclosed garage here, but at work it gets baked in the sun, covered with pollen, and occasional bird droppings and sap and such. Finally got too much, and since I had to wait for washing machines in the laundromat anyway, it got a bath. Squee.
I didn't write down the details from the first tank I filled (average was either 42.3 or 43mpg), but the second tank was:
2005-05-13 11:10: odometer=702mi, trip=411.5mi, comp=411mi, avg=45.8mpg, fill=9.55gal
I'm averaging just over 46 mpg so far on this tank; I'll have to refill it this weekend before J & S, and hopefully chancellor_d, arrive.
This last weekend was pleasantly laid back; bob_and_natalie came over Saturday evening to hit Ranchos and Obee's, which meant that we ate well and I had an excuse to put the front room in order. Tony (bartender at Obee's) gave us a weird look for playing Trivial Pursuit: 90s Time Capsule Version ("...the most trivial of decades..."). Natalie won. *sulk*
Then I spent most of Sunday afternoon working on last year's World Puzzle Foundation's sample puzzles. I got about 80% of them done, and I got about 60% correct. There were a few that I just got fed up with: there is some cleverness involved in reducing the search space, but at that point you just have to proceed by trial and error, and if I'm not going to solve it on the computer, I'm damned if I'm gonna do it with pencil and paper.
Not that I'm still wound up about it or anything.
Anyway, this week is finishing getting the house in order for guests this coming weekend. Yay! If anyone here in San Diego (or L.A. or Phoenix or however far you care to drive) and at loose ends, we're likely going to do touristy things and maybe spend some time on the beach and such. Others are welcome to join us.
