Poor bug.

Well I did not preform an autopsy on the bug so can not set a time of death it maybe that he was dead long before the switch was pulled.

That's my defense I'm using to the Stink Bug supporters out there!

Also got the bill in the mail yesterday, about what I was expecting $800.00!

The attitude of this country/our society with regards to mental health is pissing me off, especially as it applies to men.

Asking for/getting help with mental health struggles should be as commonplace as buying a box of Band-Aids™ at one's local pharmacy, and carry the same level of stigma for needing it.
It is a shame that as a society we have not at times evolved over the last few hundred years in regards to these kinds of things

Here's my story. I wasn't really pissed but I was somewhat rather incensed.


First oil change on the Chinese scooter and I left the dipstick just sitting there after all was said and done. Decided to take it for a ride to make things everything was copacetic. The oil plug shot out unbeknownst to me and I started smelling burnt oil. That's when I looked down and I realized the disaster I had caused. Came back in a hurry. I only rode for about four blocks and lost my dipstick.

Working alone at the end of the day here, answer the phone, rambling robocall from a certain presidential candidate who sounds a bit inebriated. I cussed him out and hung up.

We must get two or three of these a day, usually caller ID picks them up and we can nip them in the bud.

Getting so weary of campaign crap, scare ads, running incessantly.

I'm not up on campaigning around the world, but IIRC, Germany or somewhere similar gives their candidates a modest sum, and only that to run a campaign. No dark money, no deep pocket contributors. Must be refreshing. IIRC, we're in the billion dollar range for this crap. Used to be the best democracy money can buy...now it's just money.

[Political, I know, but staying nonpartisan so hope I'm safe. If not I'll just sit in the corner and be pissed off. ]

That doesn’t narrow it down.

Actually it doesn't. I mean you have different types and levels of inebriation...

I am absolutely livid because I made a margarita pizza, absolutely perfect as mine always are (not bragging, just worked in many pizza places and got this down to a science) and the stupid thing got stuck to the screen, rendering it UGLY.

shame

shame


shame


It did taste good but man, that made me angry. I can do better than that.

I was going to install heated grips on the Vespa today. I started by taking the mirrors off, then I got the front rack (it is GTS Touring), took me a bit to figure out that the mounting bolts have to come out to get the horn cover off.
Then I got the headset removed. So far so good.
Now I feel like I am in the home stretch it is 5PM EST and I get the bar end weight on the throttle side no problem it is a 4mm hex head bolt.
Then the other side( left side) bar end weight wont come off, broke the allen key, then the head stripped and I tried several different ways but I failed miserably to get it to come off.
Was pissed/miffed, it was getting dark and getting chillier here in Brooklyn. So ended up putting everything back , kept the front rack off.
Was contemplating if the forces in the universe were conspiring to suggest i shouldn't be riding in the winter and I should park the Vespa covered up.
But then decided I would take it to the local auto shop that I am good friends with & have them remove the stripped allen bolt and then put the heated grips on and get on with riding through Winter. But at the moment I am pissed off, it is like whatever is supposed to be a simple 1,2,3 job turns out to be exponentially made to be difficult.

Whenever a job (rarely) goes just as planned I am always surprised.

I dropped off my BMW 1200GS at a dealer to sell on consignment.
I have enjoyed that bike more than any other I have owned (before the Vespa of course!) so I will be very sad to part with it.
However, SWAMBO wants to move house and I don't have space for it in the new premises.
Happy wife, happy life.

My wife is looking for a house on Vancouver Island. Bless her soul room for my bikes and "crap" is a must have on her list.

All day long it has felt like it's Friday, and I keep thinking it's Friday, and it pisses me off that it's actually Thursday.

The belt snapped on Teagan (Big Ruckus) 2 miles from home. Called around and no friends available to help and AAA would have 2 hrs, so I pushed it home. Not exactly pissed but more surprised . The OEM belt snapped at 8000 miles, 4000 miles shy of the recommended 12K. It was 6 years old or less.

You moving out west? Say HI! to my first wife!

If you need a Web Site set up she could help you with that I believe they are still doing that. Last I heard she said they had about eight inches of snow out there!

Why are you pissed off?

You just got one day of life that you didn't know you had.

So you all get to die one day sooner than us.

(Sorry. When you reach my age you start thinking like that.)

I had that on bloody Wednesday, FFS. Though in my case I was delighted to be constantly reminded that it was, in fact, Wednesday NOT Friday. No, really!
