Advanced mathematics

7 days without a Ricardipus post makes one week.

She is absolutely right. There will be a quiz next week, so make sure that you remember that "7 days" is the correct answer.

In the meantime, I will have something to post about later this week, as I'm going to be flying off to California for a couple of days, including a visit to the same place as before. This time, the vehicle booked for my convenience is a none-too-mighty Ford Focus, although I can still hope for an upgrade again.

Before heading to that part of Southern California, I'll be spending a day at a company near San Francisco, which should be fun since I've never been there. No time to look around though. And still no freakin' flowers in my hair, in case anyone's wondering.

Two other notes. First, Zoe's got a book which you should all go and buy. Right now. Just don't worry about receiving it for a while... you know, like Harry Potter. Buy now and beat the rush.

Second, I'm thinking about another Obscure Song Quiz, like this one and this one. But since those two were, um, slightly less than wildly popular, I'm open to suggestions as to whether or not I should bother.

And you wonder why there hasn't been a post for a week (seven days, remember?). There's nowt going on. A metric nowt, which is approximately 2.2 Imperial nowts. I really must go and take some more photos of something or other to fill up the blog... and Flickr is beginning to whimper a bit from all of the neglect. I'll do my best, and with luck it won't be another seven days before next time.

nrrkiicp - My thoughts on anyone BUT ME getting to go to California or anywhere WARM right now.

I've rented a focus before now. If you get a decent sized engine, and a windy (as in bendy, not as in gusty) road, then it'll really come into it's own.

Rik - good to know. The Dodge Charger I had last time was a blimp. Would have been ok with the big Hemi V8 engine, probably, but they don't offer that on rental cars unfortunately.

That's like asking for the Focus RS... it's a performance version, whereas they only offer standard ones. I have to admit, I'd be dubious abou the US levels of Octane, but still, you can do worse.

I had a Focus rental the last time I smashed my car. Didn't care for it much--the back window is so small it's hard to see where the tailgaters are...

Seven Days - isn't that Bob Dylan? Couldn't that have been the "obscure" song for those of us who have to turn to google for everything?

(I don't like your rules!)

exafrica - that's too obscure, even for me. Well done.

There's a song called "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies, but I guess that's not exactly relevant...
