happiness is a good cup of french press coffee, a solar shower and a man who knows how to make cars run on water. my friend joe is here, we just filled up all his cubies full of grease to power his veggie car by cover of night and now like a mad scientist, he's building a hydrogen on demand system for my van. it's all about reducing dependence on petro chemicals. he's done some networking in the neighborhood as well, i don't know how he does it, but he's already met two of the people who live across the alley from me and they apparently think i'm cool. they've been looking out for me and watching my stuff and that makes me feel warm and fuzzy. i thought everyone thought i was a weirdo, but the truth is they are worried about me. joe talked to terry, the woman who lives across the alley with the big black dog and she even offered to rent me a room in her house for the amount i'm paying to rent the space for the van. she said the neighbors all wonder about me, but they like me because i'm quiet and respectful. hmmm, i guess i have some street cred in the hood. cool.
