      Hey everyone,

      I've not posted in months, that much is obvious. So lets play catchup.

      I'm still job hunting. Not much out there so its pretty slim picking. If you know anyone who's looking for a recent Master's in Architecture grad, let me know. ;)

      I've been working around the house. The rock wall is now completely finished and back-filled and all the grass has come up so it no longer looks like we are living in a construction zone.

      The veggie garden has been doing well and cranking out the produce, so usually we have lots of fresh stuff with dinner every day.

      My parents just got a new car, a Mercedes-Benz ML320 Bluetec. Its their mid-size SUV with a 3 liter Diesel Engine. 210 hp and 398 ft-lbs of torque. Yesterday we got over 25 mpg average fuel economy in mixed driving. The thing just sips fuel. 3/4 of a tank left and it says we have 450 miles left to go. Comfy too.

      Anyhoo, other than that, not much going on, how bout you? Shoot me a line.

    • David Letterman is an @#$#%%

      Yes I think David Letterman is an A@@.

      He has been joking about Willow Palin, Sarah Palin's 14 year old daughter. One joke was that she'd get raped and knocked up by Alex Rodriguez (a yankee baseball player). The next day he followed it up by basically calling her a prostitute and linking her to Spitzer.

      I dont' care if its for the sake of "humor" How do you think this would have gone over if he'd joked about Clinton's daughter, or the Bush's. Or how about a daughter of his?

      There are some things you don't joke about. a Friend of mine's wife was raped (when she was a teen). She kept the baby but that doesn't wash over the fact that what happened to her was terrible.

      Sexism against conservative women is still sexism. Not to mention just down right disgusting.

      I could start a campaign to call on Letterman to apologize. Maybe I should.

    • New Car

      So I got a new car about 2 weeks ago.

      Mazdaspeed3 in Cosmic Blue Mica.

      Stock photo CAB80MAC221A0805.jpg

      263 hp and 280 lbft of torque. However it doesn't scream "look at me, I'm a boy racer" or sound like a rice rocket either. Fairly subtle.

      Goes like stink but sips fuel. also has 17 cubic feet of trunk space, even more if I fold down the rear seats.

      Me likey....

    • Gonna get me a car.

      I'm gonna get a Mazdaspeed 3. Its an 08, but its new. I can get at least 4 grand off list right now, gonna see if I can get more off.

      I'll post picts when I get it.

      fireworkpete

      Just saw the new star wars movie. Most excellent,

      I love my new Concierge, free tickets, etc. etc.

      On a similar note, anyone want seats to the Tony's? I can get orchestra level for $700 a pop with a pre-show party with the nominees, etc. I'll warn you that it is black tie.

      So it ain't cheap, live a little! ;)

      fireworkpete

      Well, I decided to take a quick break from thesis. So I'm working on a website that keeps track of all my flights. Kinda fun.

      My stats so far (incomplete)

      Miles.. 58,711
      Earth Circumnavigation 2.36 x
      Distance to the Moon 0.246 x
      Hours 127:04

      Average Flight: 1,334 mi, 2:53 h

      I don't have any of my domestic flights in Europe entered yet, nor all my US domestic. We'll see when I get to it.

      The website is. www.flightmemory.com

      actually he's just looking for cheap casual stuff to bum around in on weekends. that and i only have $100 to spend

    • fireworkpete

      10 years ago

      Heh, I was curious if you by any chance knew the make and model...

      Anyhoo, as your gonna get to fly it, you might consider trying a few aviation simulators. They do a very good job of preping you. (even the government uses them to train fighter pilots)

      Good luck.

    • Kittiegirl92

      yea we were in the back of a four seater prop plane. it was so cool. this summer i'm going to get to fly it!

      Sure sounds good. But I'm not one for investments just yet. Even though my parents nag me about it all the time : /

      Your probably right, but its not the long haul I'm worried about, its getting adjusted to collage for the first few weeks. That’s going to be a killer.

      Hey! You win! I've had that contest image up forever! ^_^

      So, the offered prize was 20 moddings or a friend request, but since mods don't mean what they used to and I see neither of us can friend the other, if there's anything else I can do, I'm open to suggestions. ^_^

      Yay Bill Pete! smiley12.gif ^_^

      one pair for every performance and rehearsal. but a company like St. Petersburg probably has a cobbler that travels with them to make all the pointe shoes because that would be a lot of pointe shoes otherwise
