what did you do?

without foo?

i went outside. it was kinda scary.

glad that's over.

also went to see Michelle Malone and the Indigo Girls in concert.

awesome show.

went in an Indigo Girls fan and kind of "meh" about Michelle Malone (almost ran her over in an Atlanta crosswalk ten years or so ago, but didn't really know/care about her music).

left still an Indigo Girls fan (Galileo in concert? wow. just wow.), and a huge Michelle Malone fan. the live performance totally changed how i listened to her music. can't wait until she comes back to town...

I --- went outside in nasty bitter, did I mention nasty?, horribly cold temperatures and dragged out my bike and made it take me to work - oh what a terrible thing that was. My bike was not happy either. And the ride home was just as bad, bad bike tried to hide from me too in the closet but HA I found the sucka.

What did I do. Why I continued to talk to a bunch of Fooish peeps because some relationships have been established - which is one of the awesome benefits of a working forum. Putting people in contact with other people. And I like it.

Course, dam it, it made me go and open up two new accounts in places I'm not sure I want to go.

<sigh> tis the need in me to "talk"

OK, so what do you feel about a bug and another betta (fish) forum ---- oh yea and I also entered one forum on cat viral problems - ya know looking for a source of cat boogers. So there. I signed onto an account for cat boogers.

Ya happy NOW??????

Prepared a 12 minute talk for church. Spoke at church, brought sacrament to an elderly couple who've been married for about 60 years, and also I'm teaching the lesson next week at church for our sunday school. I went to a dinner where we ate peruvian food, it gave me awful stanky butt expulsions. Sat on a chair in barnes and noble and cuddled while reading a knife magazine. Yea.

Oh and I had a dream last night I cheated on my GF with another girl, and I had 2 GFs, and the girl I dreamt about me and my GF both know, I would see my gf in the day and the other girl at night. Then I woke up this morning, told my GF about it, and we talked about casually dating other people while she's in school. I also went to SFO this morning to possibly get a job as a baggage handler.

what happened on Saturday? Did you get to keep the car or was it in possession of the scouts? Sounds like it may have gotten a wheel out of alingment.

Naaah, it got misclassed. We put weight in it ( as in drilled a 3/8 hole into it from the back and filled it with the weight bars they sell). We put silicon over the weight to smooth it out. When we raced on Thurs it was within our own group - nobody else had weighted theirs. On sat the tracks were longer and he got put into stock instead of modified class. It would beat the cars down the slope to the flat, but the weight would bring it to a stop quicker than the cars without weight.
