Ennio Morricone, move over

The Good:
I finally have an end date for my time here. Barring catastrophe, my last day will be April 29th. Happy Birthday to Me!

The Bad:
I decided to actually go out for lunch today. Hopped in the Exploder, and made it to the end of the parking lot before there was a clunk.
I hate the clunk.
Through some marvelous autogymnastic feat, I had managed to bump my 4WD switch to 4WD LOW, which is only designed for slow speeds, and when I stopped at the end of the lot, it was slow enough to engage.
So I turned the 4WD off.
I turned the 4WD off.
I. Turned. The. 4WD. OFF.

Lest we forget, when in 4WD mode, the transmission goes into a different place where you can reach a top speed of about 30 MPH. And it wasn't leaving.
So I managed to drive down to the TexaLube shop down the road.

In a tiny brainstorm, it occurred to me that
a.) I hadn't had my transmission fluid changed in a long time, and
b.) it was the coldest day of the year so far.

$113.00 later, all is fine.

The Ugly:
The fastest way of transferring money from my account down here to my account up there (to be able to pay bills & house payments from the already-established account) is a wire transfer. Twenty bucks a pop.
It's still cheaper than the $26.00 per check for direct deposit, or the ungodly amount that would come up in bounced check fees. Still, *snarl*.


you were a Peter Gabriel song you would be :

80's veneer, the only way to describe you. Full of life, you party hard

and live fast. Your a crowd pleaser and enjoy every moment in the spot

light. Always cool. Shame that your only poplar for a short time before

the fashion changes and everyone dumps you for something new.

30 minutes on the bike, 60 minutes of weights. It feels good to burn. I'm trying to reach an optimum workout schedule where I can maximize what I can do without hurting myself in the process. Tonights workout did get more intense than the last few-- I'm kinda ramping up.
Discovered that I definitely need work on the shoulders. Ow.

I have a desire. A hunger. For something, and I don't know what it is.
