We tried the fried in mayo thing a few times, and it just wasn't as good as plain old fashioned butter. I like mayo, but mayo grilled cheese is not for me.

Have you tried bacon grease instead of butter?  That was the bomb when I made one each morning for Lil Stampie in elementary school.

I've been wanting a 245 and prefer white. I saw this at a customers house. Ran when parked two years ago. They told me to make an offer. My confession is that I didn't make an offer. 

I'm disappointed.

Someone on Facebook Marketplace was selling a Mazda 929 with a 6.0L LQ4 swapped in, running and driving, for $6000. If I wasn't buying a house, I'm pretty sure I'd be on my way to Ohio to buy it.

It doesn't seem like it would be great at anything, but it'd be a terrific hooligan car.

Saw that a few days ago, and it is close to me.  It's tempting, might make a fun start to a drift car or a Street Eliminator class Drag Week car.

My confession - I found out what my year end bonus is going to be.  I am tempted to go looking for something cheap and considerably more fun to drive than the Mazda5 as a winter beater that I don't care if it ends up a smoldering wreck eventually.

Like one of those unreliable XJR Jags but with a comfy japanese body and understressed american power.  Seems like a win in my book.

Paging Pete...

I can't stop thinking about that 929.  Any knowledge on whether the rear differential can hold up to an LQ4 in a car that heavy?  As I understand it is similar to a TII diff, but may have some smaller bearings in it.

It probably won't have enough traction to hurt anything.

 

Launching on slicks over 700hp with a manual trans might break the case.

Chiefs are 7-0 since Michael Irvin predicted that they won't make the playoffs.

In trying to communicate with a customer I said "Yo hablo Espanol muy paquito."  Turns out he's Arabic. Pretty sure he understood my Spanish just as well as he understood my English.

Yesterday I wanted to go to tonight's Chicago Bears/Vikings game.  

At 4pm Today I still considered going down and scalping some tickets.   

As I watch the crappy game under a warm blanket on my couch l am glad I didn't drop $300 on 2 tickets, parking, two hot dogs and a hot chocolate.

Two years ago I spent more on a single souvenir than on the ticket into Disneyland where they're sold. Last year I realized it had no use and gifted it to 11yo bro. This time around I didn't buy one. 
 

 

 

We bought three.

The only thing I wanted to bring home from any Disney gift shop was the LGB train set they had in the German shop in Epcot.

I dropped a Costco sized bottle of ibuprofen all over the floor.

The cause: trying to open it while both arms are in over the elbow casts
the solution: pick up about 500 pills while both arms are in over the elbow casts.

That took more than a minute.

The left two are the legacy Ahsoka Tano padawan set, and on the right is one of the custom jobs you build yourself during a half hour experience with only about ten other folks in the room. It's silly and expensive but fun if you're a Star Wars fan. I did one a couple years ago and we were both gonna go but they were all booked up this time around and we could only get one space on standby. Then I bought the ahsoka set because I have poor impulse control.

I discovered the Qxir channel on YouTube, and normally I don't like "talkie" videos, but his are entertaining.

Now I am reading written words with an Irish accent voiceover in my head.  It's actually kinda nice.

So icy on the way to work that I slid about 1/4 mile down the first hill by my house. That was when I said berkeley it and turned around and called off. I am not dying to get to work.

The minor confession?

I giggled the whole way back up the hill as the only way I could make progress was on the rev limiter in the R and she ain't quiet.
