    Women appreciate a certain amount of creepy. Witness Alan Rickman in nearly anything but especially "Rasputin", Christian Slater playing Jack Nicholson in "Heathers", and Jack Nicholson playing Jack Nicholson in nearly anything but especially "Witches of Eastwick".

    I'm a sucker for hatchbacks and always liked the look of the focus.

    I think that's the way to go. If you could get the same set of decals, that would be hot. 46/66.

    ...thank you. I attribute this to a woman's innate sense that all men are somewhat creepy,
    and they'd rather see some awareness and revelation of it, rather than the deeply, darkly
    creepy of someone like Ted Bundy....who was, by all accounts, a perfect gentleman.

    Last Wednesday, the 5th, I had a first and second interview with Walmart. (I know what you may be thinking. I've thought a lot of that myself. Still, they're not that different from Target and they're bringing about 400 jobs to the Vancouver metro area.) At the beginning of the first interview, the young man tried to give me a hard time about my interview being for 3pm and it then being 3:27. I stated that what I had been told on the phone and what I had written down was 3:15 and I'd been sitting and waiting for at least ten minutes for someone to call me over and begin interviewing me. He decided to let it go and hustled through the questions he had to ask me. (I had driven out the state highway behind some real idiots and in pissing down rain. I was expecting failure and irritated as f*** so I was not prepared to get jammed up about something I didn't do.)

    The second interviewer seemed a bit readier for me. I was looking over a map while I was waiting and we started talking about riding and he told me he'd had a not very successful one the weekend before. He'd gone out with his young son and since neither had been on a bike in a while it was not as much fun as they'd hoped. He said "We called you in to interview for an overnight stocking position but looking over your application and experience, it looks like we might benefit more from having you in the bike area." I said "Well, to be honest, you would really, since Walmart doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to bike assembly." He said "I've heard that assessment and I agree with it completely." We talked a little more, he asked me the four questions he had to ask, and then he surprised me by saying "Have you ever considered going into management. "Um, no."

    So, he told me to go home and take the management assessment and start thinking about what departments I might like to supervise. I took the test and they told me the next day that I scored high enough to be "competitive".

    Monday, I had my third interview and they offered me the position of Merchandise Supervisor in Sporting Goods starting at $11.45 an hour. (I will not be surprised if I get moved to the arts, crafts, and school supplies department since that position is a lot harder to fill out here in the Northwest and they saw me knitting on the sock while I was waiting Monday and we discussed which would be a better fit.) This afternoon, they called and said I passed the drug and background test and orientation is scheduled for next Tuesday. I had kind of thought this Walmart gig was going to be another entry level dead-end job where I could keep my head down till someone got sick of me. Now it looks like I may be there a while and might even be able to support Lester and his hot new ride in the style to which they'd wish to be accustomed. (Yeah. I'm jealous.)
    Take 'em by storm, @Ramona_W. You rock.

    I like the Focus hatchback. The back seat seems a bit cramped, but I don't sit there so it's not a deal-breaker.

    Sure sounds a sight better than the Fiero you mentioned test driving in an other thread!

    Fun fact : A 1999 Ford Focus was the first car I drove with more than 5 forward gears in it.

    Fiero. The best of the Citation and Chevette worlds. Sadly, when they did get it right, it was then discontinued.

    I can't speak for all women but there's a lot to be said for "enthusiastic as hell"... especially, but not exclusively, when combined with skill.

    Danke. Because of your vast and particular experience, I may be grabbing you in the Womens' Forum to ask for advice on shades of blue. Also, I'd like someone to comment on that damned post about helmet renovations.

    Here's an interesting question. Friend of mine lost a TT recently by 4 seconds. Position is great, fancy Felt TT bike, but HED Ardennes. If he runs 66s, does he make up those 4 seconds? 11 miles.

    Fun fact: When she wasn't shredding possibly incriminating documents, Fawn Hall, secretary of Oliver North, sped around DC in a red Ford Fiero with the vanity plate "FAWN".

    ...it's really quite remarkable how many people you run into now with similar sentiments.

    Even more so when you consider the loyalty to the brand among my father's generation. Hubris and bad management sucks as a branding strategy.

I need to find a way to remove tire rubber from paint, lol...yes I am ignoring the 300 lbs. remark, I'm no where near 300....yet.

    Wheelbuilder.com cover on the rear, and a 66 up front, would be ideal. 808 or equivalent, even more ideal.
