I came home and there was a 650i parked in the garage.

The Nissan is coming out in me again. I need a KA-T or the Miata needs more boost.

Still not feeling any of those GT3 paint schemes. The white one would be cool if the font on the black rail stripe was not so goofy.

It seems like Porsche decided the paint schemes had to be as obnoxious as possible so others could see from a mile away that it is a GT3.

Oh and....getting rid of the NA, LAME! Just messing dude, congrads on the nice car.


It's just really dirty, needs major detailing. The shocks are worn out, tires are shot and the alignment is off. All easy stuff to take care of. The motor is strong though, and the trans is silky smooth. It only has 103k on it.

I saw some little plastic toy cars at target today that said "v-tech" on them and I though I had wandered into a Honda dealership on accident.

10:30 pm, the sun went down an hour and a half ago, and the heat index is still 97 degrees. I hate August.

Just checked into the Radisson across the street from USC in LA. Room 101.

Anybody read 1984?


Sidebar: I feel really old right now. In a meeting on campus at the new student center, I made a joke that referenced the game show "Press Your Luck". Nobody got it. Then I realized that nobody in that room had even been born when that show went off the air in 1986.

Anybody have drive-through frozen alcoholic drink places near them? I just had a 20oz long island iced tea from one here in Lake Charles and am pretty drunk. I wish there were places like "Caribbean Hut" in Texas.

Inception was excellent, the 8-10 early high school kids behind me were not. Nor were the people in front of me texting the whole time. Now I recall why I don't see movies much anymore. Expensive and always loads of bullshit people to deal with.

Yes, a long time ago. Very disturbing book in that it is at least a metaphor if not a paraphrase of a lot of current aspects of our culture. It is overused in that respect by the modern media perhaps, but it is still quite relevant.

I hate it when that happens. Even when the joke is explained, it is still no good. Like I cracked the 'little chocolate donuts - breakfast of champions' joke the other day and no one knew WTF I was talking about. If it was not for that Kim Kar-flash-a-man chick no one would probably know who Jenner is.
Belushi skit on little chocolate donuts.
