good times
Posted on 2005.10.11 at 19:27
i don't have the attention span to go through and respond to all of the comments to my last couple of posts, but i wanted to say that i read them all and appreciate the good will from everyone.

couple more issues resolved today. i'm legal to drive again! sometimes i feel like scosol and i are involved in a subconscious game of oneupmanship with respect to "troubles involving automobiles and authority figures". :P it speaks a lot for his character that he poured resources into helping me get my stuff back in order before bothering to get his daewoowoo out of its own situation.

tangential to that, yesterday he and i roadtripped in his new M3. that car is... sublime, and i am terribly envious. i thought _my_ bimmer was a "driver's car" until i saw the way his responded to inputs- now my e30 feels like a soggy dishrag in comparison. i wish i could have followed him back north yesterday rather than making the trip today, but oh well- such is the nature of small-town sheriffs drunk with what little power they've been given.

naturally, i'm out of the loop on pretty much everything right now, so the only other thing i have to report is a clear head after a week's worth of (mostly-)self-imposed detox. i had completely forgotten what i was like when i wasn't smoking pot all the time. i need to stay this way.

i second this emotion, my friend. when you first moved in with me, you were so much happier and more productive. despite some delightful half baked conversations on your bathroom floor, i for one find you more entertaining and lovable when you're haze-free.

Ok, having been in an out of touch for a while, let me get caught up on comments:

Nice to know that nothing went wrong on your absence (majorly wrong anyway). I would call you out on it but that would make me justa bit too hypocritical methinks.

I do love big cats. And its nice to know that boy scouts came in handy for somebody besides me.

I agree about the pot thing, its fun, but moderation makes it better. Course now I can't smoke it at all even if I wanted to. Also good to know that you are legal. Be well and stay in contact. Hell, I think you have one of my email addys.

nice.

i thought you'd dumped a duc as well. which would make 4 of us. ok, how about this one...

how many german cars have you blown up? i'm in for 2, Senor Ho qualifies with at least 1, and I KNOW you're in on this category. hell, we could even include innocentchild. scosol, have you destroyed any V-dubs, Bimmers, Porsches, etc.?

nah, i've never actually owned a real bike, but if gas prices stay this way much longer that may change soon.

if we're only talking german cars, that lets me off the hook for my 2 toyotas (bulletproof 3SG block my ass) so there's the gti-vr6 i wrecked while racing, and the gti-16v (formerly ryan's) which succumbed to oil starvation during a long sweeping right-hander, so yeah, 2 for me as well.
