    Went to Tully's, bought some soy milk at the drug store, and wife bought me a lottery ticket. Didn't win. Can't say it was a brilliant day. I did find this place, though. :)

    It was patio weather over the weekend, so I took advantage :)

    Bought a mini-van. I feel like a small part of me has just died.

    The roof rack came in handy to tie ropes to for the tarps :)

    Oooh Ryan. What beer was it? I was enjoying the honey lager one the other day. I really like English bay pale ale though!!

    I need to start paying attention to all the LC talk,and saving. You gave me the Aristo bug and now I'm thinking of a LC for next summer....

    Lol @Soren , you can't just come in here postin' like you haven't been away for like a year half! How the hell are ya? We all have various theories about your whereabouts, including being court ordered by a certain individual to never enjoy the Internet again.

    Haha. Well, I guess you'd say I've been busy. I'll be honest. Lots of wind out of my sails from that episode. My online presence diminished quite a bit after that debacle. I know, I know, that's how the terrorists win. I can't help it.
    Also, doesnt help that the vehicles I have don't excite me, they just work (well, one doesn't right now) and I haven't bought for a while either. So sad.
    I should be back, but I don't know if I will ever be here like I was in the past.
    'preciate the concern though. Top notch

    I was going to say the same thing! LOL! Good to see you make a few posts again Soren!

    It was actually the honey lager! I think it was the first time I've had it. I did quite enjoy it :)

    LC...man, better start saving your pennies. I can't believe how expensive these are to import these days. You can get lucky and find some already landed for as low as 10k, but they are usually pretty beat on my then. I've repeatedly contemplated selling, but I really can't think of what I would replace it with. Space, reliability, versatility (go anywhere) and actually fuel economy....pretty hard to match.

    All good man, just glad to see you have emerged from the wreckage of all that.
    What vehicles do you currently have? Forester and something else?

    Hey Wulfie!! What I did today? Most annoying job. Popcorned my hallway going downstairs. Needed texture to hide imperfections. Turned out okay, but a little sloppy. Not what I'd ever want to do again

    Sold the touring within 24 hours, to the first person to come and look, and I even got my asking price. Why can't they all be that easy?? Not that I didn't have to endure offers of "$1400 cash bro, I'll pick it up right now, no hassels" within that time, but it all ended well.

    She will be missed.

    Took a Genesis coupe for a test drive. Kind of on the fence between buying it and an import. I've got the itch to buy a second vehicle as a weekend car.

    And what did you think? If I was looking for something in that range I would lean towards the brz/FRS, but I know many people consider them to be underpowered.

    It was "okay" it definitely didn't knock my socks off. Seemed to handle pretty good in the turns but could use more power for my liking. I did however like the interior.

    I like the Brz as well but the price of this coupe is what made me want to test it out. If I don't end up getting it I'll be looking at getting an Evo or another WRX.

    Well if an Evo is on the table, I definitely suggest joining the dark side :)

    Modifications to the coffee table my wife made. Years of smashing our knees on the sharp corners has come to an end.

    I borrowed my Dad's router when I was visiting at Christmas and I used a jig saw to round of the corners before running the router. Now I just need to stain it, but it's been too cold for that, so I'll probably have to wait until spring so I can leave the table outside over night after applying the stain.
