Rant: Getting ready for the indy to look pover my suspension. Semi consistent pull to the right on acceleration. Started when I got the UHPs, but I got the UHPs because I hit a bunch of potholes.<br>Already hung over.<p>Raves:<br>Home for 2 weeks. Hooray for programming in a robe.<br>Beer.<br>Nappers.

Raves: <br>been working for an insurance company monitoring a rain gauge for a large biker bar at sturgis with open concerts everynight. I get 20 bucks an hour whether or not it rains. I get to drink beer and there is sooo much hot trim there OMG.<br>Seen some very nice looking features walking around.<br>Backstage access to all concert and bands including korn, molley hatchet, marshall tucker band and a ton of other.<p>Rants:<br>car goes on dirt road to avoid the crazy traffic in sturgis. 15 mph speed limit that is enforced by 6-10 sherrifs all day. got pulled over doing 22 in the 15(no ticket) but was harrased for a breath mint in the back seat they thought was drugs. I laughed in their face and gave them tons of S#$$ for it.<br>Seen some very disturbing features 'hanging' around (loosely)<BR><BR>
