If you'd like I could send you pics of the people on the show I'm working on right now...the thin one is 5'4" and 385lbs....or I could just send a pic of the 146lb goiter on one of subjects..that should put you into Subby anorexic mode.

It's been a very long time since I've read him, but I find his stuff to be pretty enjoyable. It would make a good plane/beach read. Reminds me of Vonnegut.

It does get a little same-y after a while though, so I'd suggest starting with Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, followed by the one above, and calling it a day.

decided not to ride today. Just didn't feel like it.

gonna work on my car instead. Got an oil leak to work on. After I get the oil leak fixed I'm gonna take it somewhere to have them fix a brake leak. I don't do brakes, especially by myself.

Not even rotors and pads? I refuse to touch brake lines though. Those f****** are a pain in the ass.

well, I guess I would do rotors and pads.

The real thing I hate is bleeding the brakes.

I got tired of working on the oil leak. I just hate working on my car. Gonna take it somewhere. I'll have them fix the oil leaks (two separate ones), fix the brake leak, and then install new rotors on the front while they're at it. I'm pretty sure they're warped really badly.

Nil. I put him outside the porch. The kitten chomped his legs pretty good so he could only lay there and get snatched by a bird.

We have glue boards in the house because of the scorpions and large spiders and twice lizards have come in and got stuck on them.
The last time my gf put it outside and poured olive oil on him and he was able to free himself. She called it a lizard spa treatment.

When I was with my ex we had cats and she put double sided tape where one of the cats was tearing up the carpet. We came home and found a live bird stuck on the tape. I tried to save it, but failed.
