The other news, aside from N. Carter's engagement, is that I'm getting a new car. This coming Monday I'll be trading in my 1998 Mercury Mystique (the only car I've owned named after an X-Man character) for a Mini Cooper S.
Very cool, and something I've been wanting for a number of years. So I'm quite excited by the whole thing. That I'll get to drive my brother's new Audi A4 to Vancouver and then drive my Mini back just adds to the slickness factor of the whole deal.
