I dropped my truck off this morning to get the windshield inspected, and finish off the total inspection. They told me that I'd driven over the 1000 mile limit after the first inspection and so I'd have to pay 75 dollars again. I said fine and walked to work, which is a hell of a long walk across Baltimore. After a shitty day, I realized it was getting close to when they closed for the day, and so basically ran back across town to find that they close half an hour earlier than I thought. So I can't drive home tonight. I'm going to spend the night in the lab in the break room, and get up super-early so that I can either taxi it or walk back across to pick up the truck at 7:30, drive home, shower and feed the dog, drop her off at the boarder if possible, and drive back to work asap. I've got to wrap everything up as early as possible due to meeting my investment guy (who's visiting from Baton Rouge) at 3 and making a lab meeting at 4-6pm. And then, I will go home and try to pack to be back at work Thursday morning at 7:30-8 to prep for meeting my boss for the 2 weeks of 'work' that I managed to get done. Then I'll split my cells and drive to Cougar's and let him drive for 5 hours :)

I never once spent the entire night in my lab, even in grad school. But if I had no car then it wasn't a problem as I lived only like 15 minutes walk from work. Now it's close to 30 miles and the buses don't go all the way there this late at night (and I wouldn't want to ride them even if they did).

And also because I thought I could walk faster than a stroll in my big shit-kicking (literally as I stepped in some jerkoff's dog's crap this morning) cowboy boots across the traceur's dream that is downtown, I pulled a muscle in my front lower left leg, and now I'm a gimp.

wow, that sucks I forgot about the 90 day/1000 mile limits. Should have called me, I would've gave you a lift.

eh I needed to back in Baltimore by like 7am, it was just easier to not try to leave. Worst part was not being able to look at porn on the computer (except for what's on my thumbdrive ;)

    I have a friend who just got a late-model Civic and it's pretty impressive. I'm definitely keeping it on my list of possibles...

    I will try to hit up MFF if I can - with me it's always down to the last minute deciding whether I can afford the tickets & reg & room, and if I can sneak away from work to make it happen.. But I'm…

    Hm I honestly dunno if I still have a copy of that sero here... I had to mail one copy off to the state back in October when they sent me a reg suspension notice. I've been on 'borrowed' time since…

    Consider a used Civic. The current year model is a piece of crap, but I adore my 2006 and only one problem (battery) has occurred.

    I don't talk or interact with you anymore but that's not a good enough reason for you to get fucked on getting your truck repaired. I can beat that price sight unseen. also if you have your signed…
