Oh, it stopped raining for a little bit. It's about 45* and from what I can tell (quite dark outside), mostly cloudy. They're calling for rain this afternoon, clearing up by this evening....with the temps dropping down as low as the 20's...

Something on my MINI isn't happy. It was making more "whir" noises than usual...most pronounced at cold start up. I was thinking it was either a pulley or the alternator starting to complain...so I'll be ordering up a belt tensioner tool next payday "just in case". It looks like it would be a major PITA to remove the belt without the tool.

Of EGGY??!??!?!!?

Mu WAH-h-ha-ha!!!!!! <snort>





Actually, "skeered" doesn't cover the HALF of it.
I'm TERRIFIED!! You've seen the video - she laughs while she autocrosses!
And it's not because she's having fun, it's because she's detonating CONES.

She stopped by the house to pick up her pants. I was definitely skeered.
Then I learned that she hadn't been on NAM today, so I was temporarily safe.
Now I've told you all that her pants were at my house, and I'm again skeered.

(Truth be told, my wife found some unique denim at a local boutique that looked like something Egg'd like... and so they were purchased. Turns out, they were something she liked. Phew!)

Oh - and I started preparing for Minis On The Dragon today. 180 days to go.

Calvin and Hobbes rock.

You should be skeered!

You wouldn't like me when I'm angry....

Dixon, I think I might be feeling alot better now. So much so, that I think I might ambush you in your house in the night with my airsoft gear and my minions.

What I want to know is if Leon has Eggbo's pants, what is Eggbo wearing??? Sounds like a question for Siri! Better yet, it actually sounds like Mrs. Leon has Eggbo's pants, in which case Leon shouldn't just be afraid, he should be running for his LIFE!

Ya know, those Pittsburghers are an odd folk!

Hallo from brisk and nipply Coastal Maine. I just checked the 10:30 am outside temp, it's a whoppin' 36 degrees- must'uv gotten purdy cold last night. Bitter north wind blowing thru the old barn- but even with that, I've managed to keep the living room at 52 degrees and my bedroom last night, when I finally went to bed after midnite, was 48 degrees. I was supposed to fly home today, but I ended up with a horrible sinus infection (something to do with being allergic to mold, mice manure and mothballs- all of which I have in copious amounts), so I won't head home until Monday. That said, my friends and family have convinced me that I really need to turn the water off here (before the pipes bust as there is no insulation or heat to speak of in this house), so I'm moving to a friend's house for the next 2 nights. I may, or may not, have internet, in which case, I may be able to get online on my computer, or I'll have to check up on y'all via my iPhone. So BEHAVE yourselves!

Oh... right... this is EMRT... we don't have the behave gene here... ok then, have fun

Eggbo - I had fun the last time I lost my voice. I had this uncontrollable urge to do Darth Vader impersonations the last time I lost my voice.
I've driven an 03 MINI S but I don't know how much different that is to the new MINI's. I loved the 03 though. I almost bought it. LOL Didn't do too bad at it either. Only killed it going slow. Didn't even kill it at a stop light.

Hey y'all, just checking in to say hello! I know it's been a little while.

Eggy, that video was great! Thanks for sharing.

Hope y'all are enjoying your weekend! I go back to the land of the employed tomorrow! It's been a very, very long time. Big changes.

It was pretty good. The best day was Sunday. Made back the money we spent on the table which we weren't expecting.

Well, pooh. My last post didn't. Quickly though, is Oklahoma still around? Rumor had it they were experiencing earthquakes.

Steph--Great!

Vivi--No clue. I haven't heard that we've become the United 49 States, so I'm assuming the okies are all still there.
