Crackling Wheel

I had my brakes resurfaced last Friday. Brakes are not part of warranty so we had it done by an independent shop. Actually it was done in one of the service centers of a very famous car dealership. The job was done that same day too.

When my husband was driving the van home, he noticed some noise when he gets to a bumpy road. He told me that I better test drive it since I am the one who uses the van everyday to check if that noise is something unusual. So the next day, I drove it and i heard the noise. We were suspecting something related to the shock absorber. I told my husband I will call the dealership Monday when i get to work.

So today Monday, on my way to work with the van, as I was within the vicinity of my job, I heard the noise getting louder and louder. I stepped on the brakes and I felt the scariest thing .....

One thing I am excited about Friday is that we are going to watch Date Night Movie starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Date Night’s release date is this coming Friday April 9th, 2010.

So what is all about this movie “Date Night?” First, it is about a couple who lives in New Jersey, in a town 10 minutes from where we live. The Fosters always have their weekly date night in a local restaurant but one night they decided to change the venue and go to New York City’s hottest restaurant. From New Jersey, you only have to cross the bridge to go to Manhattan. So the Fosters went to a restaurant without any reservations and s…
