Helping the wife over the phone with computer issues - "the wireless keyboard and mouse don't work" Are the batteries good? "I don't know how to get the mouse batteries out" :facepalm: Did you try plugging the USB cord back in? "which plug is that?" :facepalm::facepalm: It's kinda rectangular "I tried every one, it won't work, I'm pressing the connect button now - OK it's working" :mad:

Almost time for new tires. Don't like spending the $$, but I do like the new tire smell! :D

I deal with this daily as I am the IT at work and the two receptionist are computer illiterate.

Need tires? How about EVO V12's for $490 Installed ;).

I'm pretty sure you only need one of those... :p
Second replacement in one year.

My rant is now a rave!
Good...I aim to please.

Rants:

Still mad at myself for ruining my door, but my blood pressure/background anxiety level seems to be returning to normal.
Need to have the car looked at by a body shop to straighten the cosmetic damage to the B-pillar.
Steering wheel no longer level when driving straight forwards after getting new front anti-sway bar installed.
Boot around steering column going through firewall has become dislodged and is letting noises through, need to muck around with that.

Raves:

Got a new-to-me door for not a lot of money the day after I wrecked mine. Just needs some adjustment and touch-up.
New brakes going on this weekend.
Clunking has gone away, bushing on anti-sway bar was toast.
EDIT: Oh right, happy 27th birthday to me. Woooooooo.

---

I seriously think I'd have traded my R in for a new STI after the door incident if there wasn't a 2013 model just around the corner. It also helps that the 2012 STi's stereo isn't all that great compared to the R's.

Work is still crazy, I want to get all these work tasks completed NAO!!
Did I say I was getting married? The bride is getting anxy, now that it's close to a month away...
Found that my spring seat is broken on the damn passenger side, looks like that corner is complete destroyed from the pothole last year; wheels, endlinks, control arms ,ball joint, axle, spring seat, what's next? Strut? ugh...
Haven't been able to work on any of my R projects

Raves
Weather is finally getting better again.
Other than the spring seat, car is feeling a lot firmer. And with all the wonky suspension solved, seems to be able to put down the power a lot more.
Ordered the CNT OBX DP :D
Figured out what exhaust tips I want for the R. Looks like some custom mods to the exhaust panels to fit on both sides.

Wearing
Blue Polo shirt, Khakis, & White sneakers.

Drinking
Mocha Latte
