My poor little car

Jeff was in for a roadworthy today so I can actually try and sell him.

He didn't pass, unfortunately. There's a small list of things that must be fixed before I am allowed to sell him privately. The list is:
  • Rear wheel cylinders require replacing - $290

  • Brake pedal pad - $116

  • Tappet cover gasket leaking - $137

  • Oil filter cap leaking - $16

  • Washer hose split and requires replacing - $40

  • 3 new tyres


For a grand total of $599 for everything except the tyres, as I'll be getting them elsewhere for less than the service centre would charge, $59 each instead of $129 each. Money that I would really rather not spend, but it's money that I have to spend if I want to try and sell it privately before I leave. As a result, he's booked in again for Monday.

Oh well.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
