Got home last night to discover that both of my fog light grilles were missing. I vaguely remembered sometime in the last week when I pulled too far into a parking space...only the second time I've ever done that.
Too much work do do.
Beautiful day outside which I'm going to have to observe from inside my cube.

Raves:

Got to work this morning and found my fog light grilles a few spaces over. Best 'welcome to work' present ever.
Increasingly regular massage scheduled for after work tonight.
Ordering parts from IPD on sale tomorrow morning.
The Connecticut Constitution battles Philly for first place in the AUDL tomorrow.

Being 23 makes me feel old
Waaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!

Rants:

Feel really bad for Patrick, so I have a hard time complaining about my cracked Ronal wheel that will be fixed in a few days for a mere $150
My Expedition has a nasty PS leak, but I can't drop it off to get fixed until the R is road worthy again.
I'm 60% older than JRR so i have no sympathy for him about his "old age"....

Raves:
Im having a mini-reunion with my old college roommate, as he and his wife are in Boston til Sunday.
Dinner tonight at the Union Oyster house!
Golf all day tomorrow
date with a 24 yr old on Sunday :) (yes I know, this violates the "half my age plus seven rule", but I dont care, she's hot and loves my car ;) )

Lol, I hate medications, so I think I'll just try not to drink coffee at work past 4pm. I did myself in having three cups past 8pm last night!

Btw, were you in the marines/navy? CH46E is the Sea Knight chopper, and I'm guessing that's no coincidence :D

Feeling very sorry for Patrick (even though we've never communicated... but he's an R lover, and that's good enough for me) . I'm with urinalcake, it's hard to complain about having to do a job twice (put on new parking brake shoes) and STILL not getting rid of that itty bitty shudder at 50mph...
Got to work on the house all weekend.
Have my boss in town on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday... (not really a rant, just not prepared, and will have no time to prepare prior to him showing up.. ugh)
I am 100% older than JRR, and getting ready to be 105% older... so don't really wanna hear it... (but Happy Birthday!)
I was really REALLY disappointed with Prometheus. There, I said it. (this from a person who has seen all Alien movies until the AVP2 movie... and most of them on opening night) They broke their universe's story line... and it was visually good, but the story was MEH.


Raves:
Got the rear wheel bearings in, and Wow! the car is quiet inside... the Contis give a slight hum on some surfaces.. but mostly, leather wrapped tomb...
Get to work on the house all weekend... running electricals with nephew (the master electrician) so we'll be that much closer to getting finished with the "Disaster Area" for a while...
Boss is coming to hang out for 3 days, and I am doing well (just not prepared, see above) I really like my boss a LOT, he is an awesome dude... maybe we'll drive the R next week for work... at least one day... he's p/o'd at me for finding one for "cheap" - his words - , when he's had all kinds of problems with his '11 Hyundai that he bought from CarMax at about the same time...

- and personal to urinalcake... my wife is several years older than I am... younger doesn't necessarily mean "better"... trust me on this... but have fun!

Drinking:
Coffee, mild roast, very strong. My only vice these days due to Rx's.
