    Well...week-end is over..we got snow here in CT....fun roads....but I missed the fun.


    I was stuck in the freezing garage doing a head gasket/timing belt on a friggen 94 Gro Tracker.....all week-end long...freinds swung by for a beer, and the wife kept me company until it got too cold for her....and the project lingered on...until it started. Ran some what good, but it was still blowing air into the coolant, but I thought about it...it would have done that to get rid of the air pockets trapped in the block....but I retorqued the head again, and it ran fine...then the new valve cover gasket was pissing oil every where...so I had to get another one. now the engine is good, but it is still pissin oil from the oil pan gasket...but the car is drivable..and I told the lady to bring it by on a later date..and I'll change it too.

    I drove the AE86 out in the white stuff....only to find out that it is too light, and the tires are to bald to get any kind of grip....even on a small patch of ice...the car remains motionless. But the Jeep is another story...I was out plowing thru the shit, and makeing new trails on the freshly laid down snow blanket....I loved to see people try to follow my lead.......hehe

    Had plenty of beer, and plenty of good food...mostly junk food, watched a few Anime movies, and slept a lot....I am sore from the cold and bending over the fender all week-end, but a nice hot bath is almost ready...and I will be re-charged for work tonight.

    and I made $500 on that friggen Geo....hehe

    so...how was your week-end?

    well saturday i got my ass up at 8:30 and went to my work where they were selling books at 90% off. found a few items. then afterwards me and a friend went o IHOP and got some breakfast and came home after that and took a 2 hr nap. that evening revolution8k (James) came over and brought some of his stuff because hes moving in. we then went to Meijers where did some grocery shopping.

    sunday (today) all i did was sit around and i cleaned up my apt some. then after that i walked up and got a money order for this that i won off of eBay for the 92 Escort GT. and now i am sitting here waiting for my fish sticks and french fries to cook so i can eat it. :)

    well I didnt do a whole lot this weekend. Was supposed to paint a car i have in my shop right now, but was unable to due to the fact that i could not push my integra out in the snow with no window on the passenger side and a door with no latch on the driver side. Last night I got fall down drunk and now I am paying for it today(havent left the house yet, nor have i eaten anything) To top this all off i am now imn the middle of shoveling about 2 ft of snow and im still hung over!!! i think i need t eat. That is all <_<

    Got my buddy's 93 Accord up and running, which had been sitting in a garage for 14 months, for about $150 (which included a $70 battery).

    Did an oil change on my girlie's 91 Legacy wagon.

    Washed my car. :)

    Drank with my brother.

    That's about it. A good weekend in all.

    Let's see... Saturday at 2am, I went to the Super Stop & Shop to buy some goodies. Caught a few hours of sleep, but needed to return to the tire shop to address my slowly leaking snow tires. They cleaned the rims and put the tires back on, so all is good now. While at the tire place, talked to a guy who is friends with the man who own the F1 Kart tracks. I guess this guy used to own the Jiffy Lube main company, so he's a successful enterpreneur type. All in all a great convo. So must go down and try to meet this F1 guy sometime. lol. Then home to sleep. Shoveled snow, snacked and watched tv all weekend pretty much. Not bad. Was neat being snowed in. :)

    well i pow wowed friday and last nite at a buddies house... just the 3 couples in a big house... brie and i, dave and erin, jody and luella... it was interesting to say the least. got laid of course, ate some good home-made food.

    shoveled out this morning, and drive the 240 around cuz brie is too afraid. its not that hard to drive it... holds the road pretty well and slides when you want it to. all in all a decent rwd snow car that i will be driving until the snow clears up in another day :(.

    i played gt3 and ffx for tons of hours, between sleep eat and get laid. it was awesome. i hope this is what its like when we get a place together. :D :worthy:
