Loaner Car

Today totally kicked ass. I took a vacation day for no real reason. The lady and I had lunch in Little Italy, I got a haircut and we did some shopping. Best of all, after visiting the dealer and the body shop, I found that for $65 I'm getting: two days loaner bimmers, two car washes, engine inspection, a new aux fan, new fan clutch, two new lift pads, four rust spots removed, and bonding work done on a runner panel. Rockin.

While I was getting the big daddy mobile looked at, I was given a free 2006 325i loaner (see pic on right). The car was pretty sweet, if not a bit small for my tastes. Imagine something the size of a Cavalier with taste, quality construction, and an awsome ride. The neatest thing was the key and ignition/start system. You just insert the little remote into a port and hit the start button. As far as the car itself, the interior was nice, but a bit cramped for my style. I like the roominess in my car ;) I also missed little things about my car, like the onboard nav system and memory buttons for seat/mirror/steering wheel positions. Other than that, I'd love to tear up rush hour with a 3 series, though I think I'd ideally compromise for a fiver. Driving the loaner made me realize I desperately need to adjust the EQs and soundstage settings of the audio system in my car. It sounds like ass compared to the car I drove today.

Sittin on the dock of the bay

I was just trolling around the net and stumbled upon this video. It's an awesome remix of White Zombie's More Human Than Human with Powerpuff Girls mixed into it. Stupid? Probably. It's still amusing to me though considering certain friends of mine (who will rename nameless) dragged me to that god aweful Powerpuff Girls movie years ago. Finding and liking this video entitles me to have my revoked man card returned.

I just got my favorite person in the world this home gym for her birthday. It was a pain in the ass to put together, but hey... maybe I'll even use it once in awhile! I now have a home gym and a treadmill in the basement... now if the rest of the basement didn't look like crap I'd be golden!

Nothing else has really been going on. I just saw Clerks 2 yesterday. It had it's hilarious moments, but I think that the first is still the best (has a sequel EVER been better than the original for any movie?). I'll be buying it when it comes out on DVD for sure. Copyright 2013 All Rights Reserved
