I (re)introduced myself at the Mitty, by the GRM tent, top of the hill at the end of the day. You and "kermit" were hanging out talking about doing the parade laps. I was driving the Silver NA with the rspeed/chapparral wheels.
I clearly remember now
I didn't realize you had the FE...dammit and i wanted to see it too!

I've got a good assortment of beer in the fridge. Since you're being my buddy and mowing my yard for me, feel free to help yourself.

PS, I've flushed my coolant system twice now, and it's looking good again. My griffin rad should be here today hopefully, and I'm going to stop by HF on the way home to get a 1/2 NPT tap. Some new rad hoses and an oil cap should be here any time now. If all goes well, I'll be working until the wee hours with the rad swap and oil drain.

I can understand, but looking for a job can be a full time job in itself.

Thanks dude. It didn't show today. Maybe tomorrow evening at Mazmart? The upper rad hose didn't come today, so I should have it in the morning. I got a lower hose off a 20k 00. It looks like it should work fine, and remove some complication.

I just had fricking 7 interviews with carmax for the last two month to have them tell me to "no thanks."

Thanks for wasting my time, and hope of having an auction pass FTMFL

Oh well i have an interview for a different grade coming up.

My interview for my summer internship consisted of four guys including the president of the company grilling me for about an hour with all personality questions. It was brutal, but I got the job.

you should have told me, I was with carmax for a few years, and know some of the corporate players. might not have helped with you in Texas, but couldn't have hurt.

they were a thoroughly decent company to work for, and I made 30k/yr working only weekends while in college.

Until I received the offer for the job I started today I interviewed with 7 companies in a 3 week period. I had 1 more scheduled and canceled soon as I received/accepted the offer to work at my job. So sick of interviews it isn't funny.
Good lucky getting the job, hope it goes well.

well to be honest I had some inside info. They loved me. The only problem was I had a commitment at 8:30 on saturday night and that blew my interview with the VP i think.

I told them I could open every saturday for all I cared. Oh well, might be doing 6th grade instead of 7th next year. Maybe that will drop some stress.

Stress, pay (hard to play with cars due to time, money)

But
