Immoral Minority Bait Immoral Minority Bait

Stumbled onto this while looking at anything cheap with a manual to replace the RallyMetro.

Cat. In a cabinet. Cat. In a cabinet.

Lets balance out all this derg with a big fuzzy moose cat, surveying his kingdom from the safety of the pantry.

I have some bad news ... (car related, important things are fine) I have some bad news ... (car related, important things are fine)

So, I’ve been waiting to tell you all this, because I wanted to do a proper write-up. Work had been crazy, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing up anytime soon, so I’m just going to come out with it already.

To all those who said ... To all those who said ...

“Is Shop Teacher disappointed that he doesn’t have a son to work in the garage with him?”

I think we may have a new track record here, folks I think we may have a new track record here, folks

I stole these pics from the Gambler 500-Illinois FB group, and put the poster of them as the photo credit.

No kitty!  That's my pot pie! No kitty!  That's my pot pie!

The big fuzzy moose was actually going after the celery.  He’s been getting ... bold ... lately.

I wants it. Bad. It’s $1000, it needs a speedo gear and the headlight wiring fixes, but look at it! LOOK AT IT!!!!

Stuck here for Parent Teacher Conferences for the next 5 hours, AMA ... also, new jig saw Stuck here for Parent Teacher Conferences for the next 5 hours, AMA ... also, new jig saw

I have 18 five minute conferences scheduled over the next five hours. Of course they are spaced just awkwardly enough that I won’t get anything productive done tonight. AMA.

Because I am perpetually looking at garbage cars for potential future Gamblers, I clicked on a link for a $700 Oldsmobile 88. I like these cars, and I don’t care what anybody else says to the contrary. Imagine my surprise when I found this picture of a car which is listed in “good” condition.

I took the RallyMetro to work today, so it could officially fail its emissions test after work. It’s getting pulled off the road. If it survives rallycrossing long enough to run next year’s Gambler 500, I’ll use that paperwork to buy a 7-day drive away permit. The old girl was a big hit at the emissions testing…

MOTHER F@#$&#!!!!!! MOTHER F@#$&#!!!!!!

I haven’t been able to get much done on the kitchen lately, and I finally carved out the bulk of a weekend to start working on the trim. Two pietin, and I dropped my trusty old jig saw. It’s an old DeWalt that I paid $25 for, but it’s been a great tool. And now I’ve murdered it. The shoe is bent into oblivion.

I just whitnessed a true American hero

No SR20, because driving, but I just saw dude driving a Plum Crazy Purple Challenger, towing an approximately 6x12 utility trailer full of building materials, including a fiberglass extension ladder. It was freaking glorious.

We have faucet. Repeat, we have faucet. This is not a drill! We have faucet. Repeat, we have faucet. This is not a drill!

After waiting the requisite 24 hours before hooking up the plumbing and getting our fawnsay new granite wet, it was time to hook up our also fawnsay new faucet.

Granite installers are here, AMA UPDATE: DONE! Granite installers are here, AMA UPDATE: DONE!

Sitting here drinking coffee, watching the granite countertops get installed. I wish I spoke Polish. AMA

Changing perspectives. Changing perspectives.

Yesterday afternoon I took a little 12 mile or so ride on my scooter. The odo rolled over 4k miles while I was out, which means I’ve ridden this silly wonderful little thing over a thousand miles in the scant three months I’ve owned it. Granted, nearly half of those were last weekend running it in the Gambler…

I'm supposed to wake up in 3-1/2 hours to head to the Gambler 500-Illinois, but I'm too excited to sleep. AMA. I'm supposed to wake up in 3-1/2 hours to head to the Gambler 500-Illinois, but I'm too excited to sleep. AMA.

As some of you know, I bought a janky ‘87 Honda Helix to run in this year’s Gambler. That’s officially going to have to be a winter project, because something is really not working on that. So, I’m going to do the only reasonable thing a 350 pound man can do ... Send a 125cc scooter 500 miles this weekend. I installed…
