the bmw is ours

March 24, 2002

Picked up the car yesterday (thanks to Jim for driving me over to the dealership). It’s amazing. I “accidently” took the long way home to get a taste of how it behaves on the road. I’m in love. It’s really quite amazing. Never in my life did I want to own a BMW, and the test drive on this cream-puff changed me. Completely responsive amd solid. The little extras are a big change from the Escort GT (which up ’til now has been the best car I’ve owned).The Gophers beat Colorado College and will next play Michigan in the frozen Four at the Xcel Arena next weekend. I’m excited and think the Gophers have a legitimate shot at winning the whole thing (knocking on wood).

Mr. Soldiers of God (after a brief interrogation regarding an abortion clinic firebombing) – “For do I persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. Galatians 1.10”

Sipowicz (after looking at his watch) – “Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. Sipowicz 10:42.”
