The day started off with me dropping my car off for its 75,000 mile check up. Seeing that it had 45,000 miles on it when I bought it in 2006, I guess 30,000 miles in three years is not too bad. The dealership wanted $280 for the check up but since I've had a difficult time scheduling (they're only open during work hours) I opted to take it to the place I bought my tires from. Twenty-three bucks for the same check up! I was quite happy about that. Since my warranty has expired I won't be using the dealership anymore. Also a friend of mine at work told me about this other mechanic she used to bring her Volvo to. I was going to go there but they have limited hours as well.
After dropping my car off, we headed to the Fair. Going the back way we avoided all the traffic and the mud soaked parking lots. We had a great time. Here are some pictures.

Can't believe I went on this!
After all that came home and took Bandit for a walk where we bumped into the annual Zombie-walk. Unfortunately, these pictures didn't come out that great.
Finally, the night was topped off, at the local pub for dinner and drinks whilst watching the Bruin's roar back from 3 to nothing to win against the New York Islanders.
