A quick and angst-less *gasp* post...

Random non angst-inducing (well ok that's a lie ;) stuff to report... and as an added bonus you get a non-angsty survey question!

X will be visiting in mid-June.... yikes. This should be interesting. We talked last night and somehow or other she got around to just going ahead and making reservations for June... I think the phrase "I dare you" came into play at some point... Still though, that's 2 people visiting in the next 2 months.... Vacancies at the Casa De Morales are filling up fast ;)

I got half of the Corvette's shocks changed last night and I should finish that project this evening. Good shocks on a sports car are very important, they let me take turns at higher speed... not to mention not bottoming out the car on quasi-rough stretches of El Paso roads... Now the big things are: adjusting the brakes and the shifting timing on the transmission (nothing major, both are just off enough to make me want to do something about them) and putting in some lubricant on the speedo cable. Oh and for those of you who have speedo problems I was recently informed that sometimes it helps if you put in something like graphite lubricant. Random weird rubbing sounds, inaccurate speeds etc... can be attributed to a slightly funky speedo cable and using the lubricant can fix the cable or might reduce the problem a good bit while a suitable replacement is tracked down. Best place to put this in is from the top (where cable joins to gauge) and let the graphite stuff work it's way down.

Oh, I have decided to ask a survey question since I'm stuck. Consider the current list of car names: Hazel, Drusilla, Molly, Psyche, and Winona. Suggest two good names, preferably with some sort of literary or mythological connection for the 1968 Mustang, and the 1976 Corvette. I may or may not use the suggestions, but I'm totally blanking on suitable (and amusing) names. Extra credit for names that are unlikely to belong to someone I might meet (e.g. Psyche).

Ok, I have work to do, just letting folks know that I'm still alive and muddling through.

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
