Ford SVTOA Official Forums – Floor jack – jacking points?: Since the sill jack points SUCK on the SVT, I should save this link for posterity. In case the pictures disappear, I’ve uploaded them to my gallery: front and rear.
Pontiac | Vehicle Locator | Results: Yeah, the vehicle locator is totally busted. It hasn’t changed in weeks. Additionally, the mega-rebate for the GTO has since expired so no GTO for me!
AMERICAN DAD :: FOX Broadcasting Company: Whoa, American Dad got picked up by Fox and they are even making 19 episodes for the first season! I think we might have another funny one on our hands.
Pontiac | Vehicle Locator | Results: Ok, I have decided that the Pontiac “Locate Vehicle” site is not kept up to date. I *know* that someone picked up an ’04 GTO (Yellow Jacket M6, to be specific) and the search is still returning 25 available vehicles. People are getting these cars for less than $20k out the door! That is crazy! It doesn’t help that I owe less than what my current car is worth. I’m almost tempted to put it up for sale just to see if anyone would pick it up at the right price.
So the release of the new Hot Snakes album, Audit in Progress, has prompted me to renew my EMusic subscription. To win me back, they offered a free month and 40 downloads. The normal free trial is two weeks and 25 downloads. I just downloaded the entire new album, so I have 28 left. I’m not sure if 40 MP3s is worth $9.99/month. Though, the bonus is that all of the MP3s that I downloaded with EMusic in the past are still linked to my account. If you have purchased a song once, you can download it as many times as you’d like! I lost all of my MP3s in a catastrophic crash so I can reclaim those now! Rock.
God DAMNIT! Two crappy McHorrible bits:
1) I missed not only the release of the new Hot Snakes record, I missed their Seattle tour date! God damnit. I love their live shows. Damnit god.
2) So, I’m sick. That’s not the bad part. I ran to Qdoba to grab some lunch to eat back in my office. Normally, I eat with Jeff, but I can barely talk today. So, I’m picking up the completely-full 32oz Diet Coke out of the cup holder of my SVT Focus with one hand. The cup just barely fits in the holder so it requires a bit of strong grip and a bit of dexterity. I’m sick, so I got the grip part without the dexterity. I successfully liberated the cup from the holder and then successfully liberated the soda from the cup. I’m assuming about 20 oz spilled all over my seats, floor, cup holder, heated seat button, stickshift and parking brake. Way to go.
Right now, it is possible to get a brand new 2004 Pontiac GTO for $10,000 under MSRP. A 350 HP RWD 6 speed coupe for $23k. Unbelievable! Well, I took a look on Friday and there were 25 available in the “area” around my zip code, 98005. I say “area” because the Pontiac website lets you input a zip code and then it returns a result set. It never says how far away it searches, but it did turn up results in Olympia (65 miles away).
Well, after a weekend of crappy weather, I guess no one wanted to buy a RWD coupe. There are still 25 available. There are three in the exact color combination I want (no, I’m not telling you).
3000 LB. CAPACITY LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM RACING JACK: Christmas gift, please? I need a jack to do just about any work on my car. I have ramps, but the front end of the SVT is just too low!
Ok, I need to preface this post with a HUGE WARNING. This post contains graphic content and should not be read by young ‘ins (Definition of “young ‘in” varies from state to state. Contact your local authorities as necessary). This post should not be read by my family or by anyone prudish. Ok, here goes.
Jenn pointed this site out to me a few days ago, saying I would love it because of the way this guy can control everyone and not care at all about what he has done. My kind of man! Basically, he is journaling his exploits with women and occasionally work. He has a way with words, except when he is describing his sexual exploits. It gets old, quickly. Anyway, here are some choice quotes:
“I look around the room, and my pussy detector goes off.”
“The big question is, do I have to tell her about Tiffany? I made the promise TODAY, but I fucked Tiff a couple of days ago. So technically, that screw should be grandfathered in, right?”
“‘I love the way my pussy tastes,’ she says.
That makes one of us.”
“Any doubt I may have had about Holly wanting to fool around is gone. She’s been flirting with me all night, and now she’s basically touching my dick.”
