Raves: Dropped the caR off for 60k service and alignment/tire rotation, recieved my Rkelly intake yesterday (thanks TGO!), and will be ordering my softloader today (or maybe monday if I have time)<p>Rants: Dropped the caR off for 60k and nothing ever goes smoothly at my dealer (long story short two employees at the dealer backed 2 loaner cars into each other, and one of those loaners was mine...)<br>Cant wait to get the caR back and do my IPD tune/install Rkelly intake!

Raves: Tile floor in the kitchen is finally finished. Appliances are going back in tonight. <br>Paint is getting picked out tomorrow. All that's left before move in is the new wood floor.<p>Rants: I'm working 12 hour night shifts all weekend, so I'm relying on my roommate to get all this stuff done with out me (minus picking out paint).

Thanks for picking up the thread...<p>I haven't really had warm fuzzies for the Volvo community at large as of late - it's not most of your faults...and some attitudes formerly not present here are surfacing...much to my disgust.<p>I was also accused directly of being narcisistic in my postings here...which honestly I can do without as well.<p>As for the rants and raves...<p><B>Rants:</B><br>A few a$$holes pretty much always spoil good things for the masses.<br>Business is s-l-o-w.<br>I didn't get a new M5 this week. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><br>No extra money for mods. No extra money for new outfits. No extra money for much of anything.<br>Painfully sorting out the sins of husband's previous imbicile accountant.<br>Nearly incessant rain in NJ. In fact it's thundering and the sky is getting dark now. Again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>My R needs a serious cleaning and detail.<p><B>Raves:</B><br>I'm starting the South Beach Diet on Monday and hope to loose some weight and change some bad habits in the process.<br>I'm going to a new doctor on Tues to try and sort out some things and get moving in a more productive and positive direction.<p><B>Drinking:</B><br>Trader Joe's French Berry Lemonade + Skye Vodka with fresh raspberries.<p>Have a good weekend guys! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
