Badass Batteries

I've been really impressed with the set of Sanyo Eneloop NiMH batteries we bought in Japan earlier this year. Happy to report that Costco is now carrying a starter set for around $26, 8 AAs + 8 AAAs + charger. Holds useful charge for a long time. Highly recommended.

These moments are always a little bittersweet, but
the girl
*completely* overshot that and went DEFCON 1 when I told her the car was going away.

And here I quote: "I want the Porsche forever and ever!!! (Banshee wail) (Kicks legs)"
