I was dissapointed to learn that my car is not compatible with the newly available E85 fuel. It's better for the environment and significantly cheaper. Most of the vehicles that are compatible are trucks. Those of you with Ford Rangers may want to check it out, but it may not be all that beneficial because there aren't any suppliers around here; most of them are in western Iowa.

I have read the first chapter of the new HP book. I read it last night right after I finished the 5th book. I was going to run last night after helping Shauna celebrate her new job, but I was sooo tired and had such a nice headache that I decided sitting in bed drinking water and reading was a better choice.

My bus comes soon, so I better get ready to go play with other peoples blood!

That's really gross.

I was reading on J.K. Rowling's website that she's been trying to put some form of that chapter into all the books so far, and it just never fit before.

I really enjoyed it, but someone I work with was complaining that it had nothing to do with the rest of the book, but I think it has everything to do with the whole series. I have always wondered how the Muggle and Wizarding communities worked together.

I finished the second chapter on the bus ride to work.

I am extracting DNA from the blood we used for clinical testing so it can be used for research. Some of it is pretty gross because it is old.

I think it helped transition the last book into this one. The last one had such a tone of desperation, and this one didn't so much. The Other Minister reminded us of that, but then let her roam a little looser with the tension levels.
