Why be nervous, she has connection in the industry to take care of that shit.

Who's idea to get a stick if she's not comfortable with it? Or is it a personal challenge to herself?

She wants the wrx. Did not want CVT transmission. She was going to buy a new WRX. So I was keeping an eye out for a manual transmission trade-in to practice stick shift on. We traded a 2009 WRX STI hatchback on Saturday.

Sunday we went and practiced with that car because the clutch is already half hosed. We both fell in love with the car. So fast. Very glee.

She drives about 2000 miles a year. Maybe she keeps it 2 years, maybe 5... I'm getting a 5 year warranty.

4.7 seconds to 60, 13.4 1/4. Woosh. I'll put up pics later today.

Yup. 2 years now. I must have mentioned it.

That's funny!

Someone here noted that VW ran some commercials with that fundamental message and that VW was moved to add a disclaimer in small print /fast voice at the end saying, pl do lock your doors.

Side note

When dating Twil, my love for her swelled when I learned the Ford Explorer she drove at the time was a five-speed.

Sexay!

Did I mention that I bought a new garage with a detached 4 bedroom (was 5) house?



The relocation of the laundry room is mostly done. We just need to get the pad out from under a treadmill and cut it to size. That'll go under the new washer dryer set. My brother spent the weekend doing that while we cleaned and stuff.

The dryer vent looks like it belongs (the little square placed seemingly randomly)


I'm fucking tired

A friend of mine moved their washer and dryer hookups upstairs. She loves it.
