I am being asked to take on my dream job. Everybody's dream job. Zamboni driver. The guy is begging me. I just don't know if I have enough time, but still counting this as a win, even if I am not able to capitalize on it.

It's a pretty good gig.  I have no complaints but it could pay better.

If only they had worked in maple syrup or Tim Horton's somehow, they could have made Deadpool the most Canadian memeriffic antihero ever.  Even more than Wolverine, who mostly just drank and lumberjacked in the movies.

I have been putting off getting a new phone because I didn't see the value, my 6S has been working without major issue for a long time so why spend the $? Well The memory was full and I didn't want to get rid of the things I had on it so it was starting to run really bad. I ponied up and got a 13 Mini (I don't like giant phones). Holy crap is this nice. So fast, and it just works way better. I should have upgraded a long time ago.

This probably isn't a minor win, but whatevs.

If you followed me into Ford stock back in June-ish and then got out today like I did you got a 72% return.

I might go buy a TIG welder.

Is it taboo to post things like that for sale here? 

I’ve seen a few posts about boom stick related stuff for sale, but nothing specific.

  Im asking if it’s ok, depending on location and item I may be interested.

Coffee girl spent another night here.  We had a great time, and she took me out today for some fresh air. We hit an old fashioned candy store, a comic book store/vintage arcade, and a really good diner. We're both happier than we'd been in a long time.  I can't believe how well this is going.

Thank You. They're coming along. The knee is feeling better. I'll likely be in the walking boot and out of work for a couple more weeks.

I thought the Maryland temp registration and plates expired at the end of the month. No you berkeleying idiot, they expire on 1/15.

Called the dealer title clerk at 3:30 pm on the 14th to get an extension.

They were delivered via FedEx before noon on the 15th. Well done title department! Good things can still happen.

The state of PA will take up to 3 months to process and issue my new registration and plate. Just read in the news that there is a paint peeling issue on the new PA plates.

OTOH, PA dept. of revenue wasted no time sending out an inheritance tax notice to me on Dad's and my joint account. 10 days after he passed.

I see where your priorities are PA.

Turned on the heater in the garage and it let me work at 28 degrees instead of the 12 it was when I went in there. Score!

2 year old god niece got the Rona. She was also a premie, so some things hit her harder than others. Heavy duty congestion and heavy breathing. Mom was about a hour away from a hospital run, as per the pediatrician's time table.

And it finally started to reced. Berk yeah.

2 nights in a row in the garage and 2/3 patch panels are formed and ready to weld. The 3rd one was formed, but shaping the other 2 made me hate it and it shouldn't be toouch work to replace it tomorrow and get a driver's floor in!

Finally made it back out to the shop and made good progress on a project. It's been a few days and I think my mental state was suffering for it. Hope to get a car listed for sale real soon now!
