So the pet scan machine lives at the hospital, but they have to bring in dye doses individually as needed? What kind of brainless ducking executive came up with that bullE36 M3? 

I'm not going to get any more polite the longer you make me wait without breakfast, so hurry the berkeley up and get your dipE36 M3 driver over here with my dye.

People suck. Be careful out there, especially when choosing who you let into your circle. 

Now I am trying to get someone to make a decision I'm not sure I'd be able to make if our roles were reversed.

If you drive a pickup hauling air, then there is a 50% chance you are mad at me for simply driving an EV.

If your pickup is diesel, and hauling only air, that chance rises to 75%

If it's a Dodge Ram diesel, hauling only air, that chance rises to 85%

If it's a modified diesel pickup, hauling air, especially if it's the black smoke variety, I am going to make sure you can't run me off the road, which may involve easily outrunning you, which will likely make you more mad.

I'm pretty sure my substandard, overpriced hotel room has mold in it.

Ridiculous

berkeley VWs and their electrical systems.

Cayman's battery is dead and the frunk has no easy to get to manual release. So, if the jumper in the fuse box does not pop the hood you have to take apart the inner fender on the drivers front and pull a wire.

A berkeleying wire that could have been terminated in the berkeleying cabin.
 

Bigger battery box is charging for round 2.

I swear to Saint Ferdinand that I do love Porsches though. Frustrating pieces of expensive E36 M3.

I am just... done... for the day. About all I've been able to do for myself for the last few days has been going to the Chiropractor today and (though saying it was for myself is pushing it a bit) spending 40 minutes or so trying to clean/organize the garage (though not really, because the whole time was spent pulling nails out of the trim that was pulled from our basement when they put the new flooring down after it flooded last year so I could safely store it up in the rafters because The Dancer wanted to save it to potentially use when we built on our newer property) and I'm just physically and mentally exhausted. 

I have a hundred things that I should do tomorrow while The Dancer is at rehearsals, but I am planning to say 'berk it' to most of them and spend at least a few hours cleaning and waxing the convertible and hopefully putting in the upgraded speakers for it that I've had for over a year but just not had time to install.

The battery in my wife's Golf died the other day. In the manual, it said to make sure the car was unlocked before swapping the battery or it might engage the security system. I am honestly, not sure how I would get the hood open with the car locked, but it sure would suck for the security system to go off whilst connecting the battery.  LOL VW

Well as I was taking my morning constitutional in preparation for my shower, the hotel fire alarm went off. I finished my business and got in the shower. The alarm was still going off when I got out of my shower.

My room was on the 4th floor. I figured burning to death was a risk I was willing to take in order to make my flight this morning.

The strobes were still going off 45 minutes later when I checked out.

The clerk at the desk asked me how my stay was. My reaction was equivalent to this:

I have nasty allergies. Everybody in the house does. This is a bad time of year for that.

And we live downwind of the grass seed capital of the world.

And we're all sick again for I kid you not the fourth damn time since Thanksgiving, coughing up all the stuff, costing us sleep we really can't afford to lose and threatening to give me a hernia-and-cracked-rib unhappy meal that, not to sound ungrateful, I could really do without.

And the school year is wrapping up. Summer is coming. None of us are summer people in any way whatsoever, and we're either going to be stuck with each other indoors for months on end or squinting and burning our way from one sunlit torture test to the next, trying like hell not to kill the "Yaaay, SUMMER!" vibe that the rest of the world is soaking in.

After summer, it'll be wildfire season. Then come the rains. And then the winter, with all its obligations and expectations and so on. And then the rains and the pollen and the summer again. 

Is there such a thing as All-Seasonal Affective Disorder?

Got new dimmer switches because LED lights in the basement are buzzing on the old dimmers. Changing switches is SUPPOSED to be easy... until I discover that the switches have been wired up wrong.

Our son had been on the receiving end of an abusive relationship for a long time until last February, when he broke it off. They have a child together. The woman has clinically diagnosed issues but chooses not to stay prescription medicated but self medicates which accentuates the high and lows. She was responsible for totalling out my Cruze with a bat as well as dozens of other assaults and bouts of vandalism on my property and others. 

On Saturday of last week she was arrested for the fourth time for assault, vandalism, and burglary as well as abusing the emergency system (calling 911 multiple times because her car was stuck on my property and the hole she created would not let her loose) 

Her grandmother bailed her out on Sunday and we have been harassed daily since but can not do anything until she steps on the property. 

I am at a loss for what more to do. Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop drinking wink

I'm going thru something similar although it's more absurd than sad.

I live in a reasonably progressive area. Still, while I was driving around in a Rivian - made less than 125 miles from where I was at the time - I was told to go berkeley myself in my Jap POS by a guy in a that had a thin blue line sticker, a Gasdsen sticker, a US flag, and a Confederate sticker. I'm pretty sure the irony of having that particular sticker selection was lost on him.
