Go Tirerack!!! Made an order yesterday morning (Wed 4th) at about 4am, and the tires are already out for delivery today. Talk about fast service, even with standard UPS ground. Should be on my porch by 2pm, so only about 34 hours from order till in my hands, on an 84lb, oversized package.

Arby's would be good, it's just down the street. But I typically go to Noodles and Co. in these situations.

I liked ATL better before the recent renovation of terminals A and B, when the smaller tunnel was still open. That was kind of a neat little secret space you could drop down into and have actual peace and quiet.

I don't dislike ATL, I just don't feel strongly positive about it.

Now CLD, on the other hand, is a cool airport. It was cooler a few years ago when the "terminal building" was a trailer (literally), but I still like it even now that it's all growed up. Just wish somebody would come back in and restore service to PHX or some other more easterly hub.

Hmm what airports have I found t obe awesome.

Ahh San Jose is pretty cool. They have a bunch of interesting sculptures and the building has super high ceilings which is nice.

Regan DC airport is also great because every time I've been there, the airport is pretty much empty.

Ever peek into the window and watch the Arby's crew shave that big, spinning ball of meat? It's ghastly.

Peek into what window? Are you creeping around the back doors of fast food restaurants?

Nah, I just looked in the drive-thru window and could see the big meat ball being shaved. I was so grossed-out that I just drove off.

Broba Fett, you and I both know there's a HUGE difference in the meat. I've lived in Europe for extended periods, I know a lot about shaved meat.

Went back to picking apart the inside of this ******* house again and after getting mouse **** and **** all over myself, I finally found this weeks payoff.

A ******* heavy *** canvas bag filled with foreign coins and ingots from the mints, still in the wrap with boxes and certificates. I came to roughly $2000 worth of stuff, and that's a conservative number.

As we're going through the bag we started talking about my commission and eBay/PayPal fees. Talking turned into yelling and eventually it ended by me telling the guy to go **** himself and good luck selling it.

The guy doesn't understand that I need to list some stuff ASAP to get some money coming in for BOTH of us before I move on. Its really a stupid move on my part cause that's an easy $1k in my wallet. Not to mention we've only been through maybe 5% of the house so far. Unfortunately, I cant take it back and it might have cost me big time.

I'm hoping that we can both have some time to think and come to a mutual agreement so I can get back to work. As of right now I'm not listing a thing for him until we settle this first.

I really ******* need to have a contract written out and signed before I even start working for someone.

What was in it reference to? Maybe I can search for it.

I have a contract I revised from legalzoom but I haven't finished it yet. Everyone thus far has been through word of mouth, so you'd think you could just go off a verbal agreement.

I'm going to swallow my pride here and just start working on this stuff tonight. I already have a good bit of work put into the house so to walk away would be foolish. Especially now after finding that bag.

I wish I took before pictures of this place, although its still just as bad only now it has a path to walk through. I need a mask and gloves though cause the amount of **** and **** in this place is unreal. I still feel sick just from breathing inside for the hour we were there.

What a coincidence, I like my meat to be shaved European style. Small world.

I liked DIA as well. The horse of the apocalypse is fabulous and just the fact that I can sit in the terminal and look out and the Rockies is fine with me. Plus it gets extra points from me because I actually got decent food last time I was there. had to grab a to-go sandwich from Rock Bottom because I was in a hurry and it was mucho yum. I normally grab those to-go sandwiches and hate them but have no choice.

I can't really think of too many airports I like. Well, MSP is good for a layover. Lots of food and shop choices and you can walk for miles and ride the little train. Every time I go to LAX, it smells. JFK is hell for transfers between terminals. CDG is always cold. LHR has terrrrrbile food after security. I could go on, far too much time spent in airports.
