6 months ago, I was promoted and got my own office. I'm not saying that being able to shamelessly drop a fart whenever you feel like it is the very best thing about having your own office... but it is pretty high on up on the list.

I'd consider that a negative.  Nothing like a nice dusting of the coworkers then blaming it on the new person.

On the same subject: My wife told me that today, in the grocery store, she carried our 2 year old son on her hip, with her hand under his butt. He then produced a machine gun fart, threw his hands up and yelled: "Haha! Fajteded mommys hand!"

Why is it so easy to teach him this stuff, but impossible to teach him to help pick up his toys?

For the same reason you will spend all weekend changing a part on your worthless project car, while driving the minivan without stepping on the brakes, due to the noise from the squealers.

One is just for E36 M3s and giggles, and is  fun.  The other is required, and is not fun.

I'm pretty sure farts never lose their appeal no matter how old we are.

It made me bleed from two more places and cost me another $100 in tools, but I got the harmonic balancer off the Mini after failing miserably last weekend.

The triumph of man over machine continues.

This evening we start our next road trip.. it'll end tomorrow morning in a different location than she's expecting, and it'll end with me popping the question. I'm beyond excited, and hopeful that I'll stop dreaming I forgot the ring at home after tomorrow morning..

I drove the last 5.5 hours, from 11pm-430 am. She woke up in the city we met in, instead if in my parents driveway like she thought was the plan. Executed perfectly. I dont think I could have driven another minute.

She said yes

Not religious at all, but I'll gladly accept having Good Friday off. First day off I've had all year and I could really use it coming off a few 60+ hour weeks.

Coming home from work to find shiney new racecar parts waiting for you is pretty nice.

(Front accessory brackets and motor mount adapter plates for the GTA LS swap, f body LS1 pan is on its way.  Now I just need an engine and trans)

Our sketchy neighbor is loading a moving truck. She's been here the whole 19 years we've been here. She's clearly dealt with a lot of E36 M3 during that time, and I empathize with her struggle, but holy cow will it make the neighborhood better if she's actually going. Mrs. Deuce and I are sitting on the porch fantasizing about buying the lot, getting rid of the single wide, and just cleaning it up. Plant a garden there maybe?

DO IT. I had "keep to themselves" type neighbors for a while and I wished I could have talked to them more. Their house went for sale, cheap, and I decided I didn't have the energy for dealing with another house renovation. Then an shiny happy person moved in and now I wish like hell I'd bought it. Life would be much better for me if I had.

On the other hand, aren't you the guy with like 17 cars in the yard?

In reply to Knurled. :

I have one of the nicer yards in the neighborhood. Even with the cars. Neoghbor in question hasn't mowed in over a year. If I lived in a HOA neighborhood I'd be the guy you were trying to kicked out, but here I'm the good guy. I really don't want to but another house and I really don't want to be a landlord.

I ain't makin' any judgement.  Yet, I've also had to deal with people who figured that anybody who had more than one car was some sort of sleazeball.

 

Eveybody's someone else's....

 

Today's win:  The lights on my trailer now work, and I have Pierogie for dinner.
