Weekend Words

Plans can change in an instance.

Take Saturday, for example. Our original goal was to
hit Renfaire. R. wanted to exchange a pewter mug and
have a ring custom-made. Instead, after a quick
breakfast, we visited--again--the local Carmax to
check out another Acura RL. I also wanted to
test-drive a Cadillac STS and an Infiniti G35.

The RL has an interesting history. I was already aware
of it, showing up on Carmax's website. But not only
was it priced above my price range, but it was out of

But fate interviewed. Someone wanted a closer look at
the luxury sedan and paid to have it transferred to
the Irvine store. You would think, then, they'd bother
to show up.

Nope. When we were checking out the car, I found
"hold" paperwork in the passenger row, showing the
time had come and gone. R. later speculated that they
had purchased another car in the interim.

Thus, unlike the last RL I test-drove (which was being
transferred to another store whose requestors did buy
it), I did not feel restrained when I test-drove the
new one.

I purchased the 2006 Acura RL shortly afterwards*.

We grabbed an early dinner since it was too late to
make Renfaire. Since it had been a while--and I wanted
to continue driving the RL--we heading to Huntington
Beach to visit DVD Planet and Barnes & Noble. We took
a scenic route, though: instead of hopping on the
freeway, we took Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).

The rest of the evening was spent reading.

Sunday R. was on-call. I ran errands, including
dipping into a local Acura dealership to get some
aftermarket information. Unfortunately, the service
department was closed. Rest of the night was spent on
housework. I did, though, take the car out for a spin
around midnight.

Overall, a...productive weekend.

*NOTE: Still have mixed feelings on my decision.
That's subject to another post, though.

  • Congratulations on the news (used) car! I know this has been a long decision, but I think you made the correct one.
