And the saga continues

Okay, so this morning I went out to the honda at about 6:15am. Showed up and couldn’t get it to go forward at all. I stuck it in reverse, and voila, it went. Then it decided that going forward was a good idea, too. So the honda seems to be working right. That’s good.

On the way downtown from Gateway, my truck’s 2nd and 3rd gears started making an awful racket. I think the synchros there are going … and the tranny shop is on vacation until the 4th. I’m going to park it in the Palmer HS diagonal parking lot until either A) I figure out something else to do with it, or B) the tranny shop opens. So that’s that.

I don’t want to get all up in hawk for another car … I’m thinking that when it’s all said and done, I can sell my truck for $3,000, maybe $3,500. That will either be pay-back-loan-money or a down payment on another car. I am thinking strongly about an integra … dunno why, though. What year is your Neon, Disco?

So yup, that’s that … on my way home to finish cleaning and to pray that my parents aren’t back yet.

Update: I saw this nifty, inspiring even, quote, and despite the fact that it doesn’t mesh well, I thought I’d post it … :

’96, only 40 something thousands miles on it. I have taken MANY long road trips on it, so I know it will hold up to 100 mph for hours on end, just remember to let it cool down every couple of hours, and change the oil before ya do that hehe. The only major problem I’ve ever had with it was the tranny wouldn’t go into reverse, so I got the tranny replaced under warranty.

AHHAAHAHAhahahhaha that’s hilaroius 😀
2001-08-28 11:29:32 – You call this a site?
Hey princess, how about those fucked up links? You gonna fix em or are you done playing big bad tech geek?
2001-08-28 12:03:57 – Laura
Randal’s a princess! fuck that. :-)

oh, and, craig, i heard a rumor that you were glad i was *finally* out of town. considering i haven’t seen you for a few months, you should shut the fuck up. my two cents.
2001-08-28 12:10:57 – rand0m
Yea, well, I still <b>AM</b> a big bad tech guy. I just don’t have any big bad tech guy time. :-) And Laura, I’m not a princess — I’m at least a queen, thanks 😉 As for the whole what you heard from craig, it wasn’t just what you heard, it was what craig told me to tell you. He’s serious. He hates you. He wants you to die an excruciating death and burn in hell’s rotten fires for all eternity. That’s all Craig though, not me … 😀 Master Ha-Reed, if you read this, who was that fine-ass chica you were sitting next to today @ lunch? GodDamn, work that booty! 😉 😉 😉

Um, Laura, I don’t hate you, I just think you either need to A. Grow up, or B. Admit to your self (like I have) that you will never grow up. Thinking you are grown up and not being grown up is just annoying
2001-08-28 17:08:22 – rand0m
w3rd, he’s got a point … I guess that applies to me … gotta be all grown up but don’t want to be … suck. at least I dig this :-)

I don’t know Laura well enough to vote on this matter. But I think Randal, you normally have a good peace with your age: You know you are young without acting like a homo-repressed frat guy.

I was at the hide and seek on saturday until 6 in the morning dancing, does thi smake me homo-repressed?
2001-08-28 18:35:30 – Laura
James, that had nothing to do with you. I was talking abou Craig. and there’s no reason for craig to hate me. I mean, maybe everyone else who pasts does, and they don’t hate me. I also think criag is the one who need to grow up. and i don’t claim to be grown up, i just don’t claim to be a straight male like you people, so you don’t get me, but that’s cool, i suppose. So, Craig, why do you hate me? this better be good.

Anyone else think that craig’s comeback there was a little weak? Yeah, so I’ze down at college, yo, and wurd, it be phat shizzat. And no, I haven’t started smoking pot again; the above sentence was an attempt at humor. So fuck you all. Especially whichever two of you made a bet about it; I can’t remember much in my current motrin-advil-cold-and-sinus haze. If any of you all know a surefire way of preventing your sinuses from being retarded, please post. Other than that, school r0xx0rs, lotsa hot freshman chicas, and I’m in a band. If you want further details, e-mail me. Cuz unlike most of the posters here, I don’t feel the need to broadcast all the trivial details of my life; if you want them, you may have them, but I won’t bore you all by default. So anyways, that’s all.
