it's only Tuesday

What the hell's wrong with my LJ client? Why won't it log in? Why do I get the tremendously helpful error message of "error"?

I'm cranky this morning. Maybe my car issues are catching up to me, or maybe I'm just tired, or maybe I'm annoyed at being late every day. Even though it's my fault.

Last night we went to school to make up the test we missed last week. I'm pretty sure I scored a 100%. Maybe not, actually, but close. Then we went to my parents house because my grandparents from South Dakota were there. No one told me they were coming, I had to find out from my brother YESTERDAY that they were on the way and would be there in a matter of hours. Then last night I took apart my clippers and can-of-aired them and used rubbing alcohol to get all the little hairs off the blades and then put them back together and oiled them... voila! Super vibrating cutting like brand new clippers, and I can shave again. Well done to me.

Now tonight we have Speech class. At least we don't have to give any speeches this week... I'm not in the mood today. I have to study for my Econ exam also.

Leah, I'm interested in my Eddie Izzard tape. When does that come out?

Props to poetryslam for this... You know, it really wouldn't surprise me to see that done in seriousness. There are billboards between here and Kansas City that say "Accept Jesus Christ...OR REGRET IT FOREVER!!" Can you believe that shit?

Plain non-flavored oatmeal is disgusting. I threw all the packets of "Original Flavor" (as though to imply that the taste in your mouth when you eat is qualifies as a flavor) in the trash.

Thanks to poetryslam I now have America by Simon & Garfunkel stuck in my head. Good song though. There are worse things I could have stuck in my head.


I like this one.

    tired as hell

me (9:41:09 AM): Friday at 2:00 we're having a company picnic
tandra (9:41:23 AM): ok
tandra (9:41:29 AM): you want me to come or something?
me (9:41:45 AM): they're raising money by offering nominations for 25 cents each or 5 for a dollar
me (9:41:53 AM): when you nominate someone it's actually a vote
tandra (9:42:03 AM): a vote for what?
me (9:42:11 AM): the five people with the highest vote totals are the targets
me (9:42:29 AM): at the picnic, you pay money to have someone put a blindfold on you and throw water balloons at the targets
tandra (9:42:35 AM): the targets for what, archery practice? Ooo, count me in, I vote for Darla
me (9:42:57 AM): Darla's in fourth
me (9:43:03 AM): the person with the highest count right now has 200
me (9:43:05 AM): that's $40
me (9:43:17 AM): I WANT LINDA.
tandra (9:43:22 AM): I know you do
me (9:43:38 AM): but she only has 25 and I'm not spending $50 on that
tandra (9:44:14 AM): Oh, come on, you know it will be worth the 50
me (9:44:26 AM): if I had the 50 to drop I'd do it in a heartbeat
tandra (9:44:40 AM): I bet
me (9:44:49 AM): and then I'd pelt her with water balloons
tandra (9:45:04 AM): lets pelt her with water balloons anyway

I love my girlfriend


My car is broken. My fiancee is at a job fair. Hence I am stuck here on my lunch hour. I hate that.

She was kind enough to bring me lunch though, that's cool.

Guess I'll look up cars.

bad: our internet keeps going up and down

SUPER HELLA HAPPY GOOD: I got Samples tickets for the 19th... for THIRTY BUCKS for TWO! haha, I am victorious.

That's right, I said "hella".

Tandra might get a job back at CCH again. That's the place I blew off and just quit going. They liked her there though. Hope she gets it. She is interviewing right now.

I'm making a spreadsheet of info on cars I want. So far I'm looking at the following:

94 Acura Integra GS-R
98 Dodge Neon R/T
00 Focus ZX3
96 Honda Civic DX (underpowered)
94 Honda Prelude VTEC
91 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 (AWD, not likely)
96 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX (AWD, Turbo)
95 Volkswagen GTI VR6

And just for fun I've included:

01 Dodge Stratus R/T
00 Honda S2000
98 Toyota Supra

just to get the specs down.

What is the standard way to figure a power to weight ratio? Currently I'm using (horsepower/weight)*100, so I'm ending up with figures like 6.37, 6.07, 9.29 (on the Supra), 4.77 (on the Civic), etc. How do I do that correctly?

P.S. - Focus ZX3 is 5.1, Focus SVT is 6.66.

P.P.S. - Someone please kill me. Someone in the office is humming "Annie's Song" by John Denver with a horrible vibrato and no concept of tempo.

trannymobile update

Sounds like no new car for Joshy. I guess it was just a leaky seal which let all the fluid go away.

Which is freaking weird because I checked that shit and it was full. Maybe I'm incompetent.
