If youre going to continue to average 30k miles / year, you should get something cheap because its going to be worthless after 4 years anyway. 

Most of the mileage I racked up when I was running my own company. I spent a lot of time on the road and driving was just more economical. It hasn't been so bad since. But the big thing I need is towing capacity. And the Sierra is definitely the best at it's price.

I was all like, "YAY, got the IT dep at work to open websites for me" and then I was; "like... wait. They're all asleep at this time... ;_; "


Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L.

So... been gone a while. Lost my job last month, have an offer letter for a new job (about 7k less per year). Added another cat to my family and am examining my options for the future. Have four more interviews this week that I'm hoping turn into something, and I need to replace my 20 year old acrua integra with something newer. Hopefully the interview with a dealership for an Ops Administrator will get me some traction.

Good luck, Calax! What neck of the woods are you living in now?

In other news, I was surfing this page of weird genetics and it turns out I have sectoral heterochromia. My right pupil is half brown / half black. I always just called it my crazy eye. :shrugz:

I'm outside minneapolis with a house/mortgage and everything.

 

Jesus I joined this board 14 years ago. I feel old.

Newest model I'm about to edge highlight. I hope somewhere down the line I look at this and don't think "Man, the half-and-half stripes and diamonds scheme looks stupid" because these guys are a bastard to paint once all the pieces are glued together.

Found out today that I've got a reputation for being the bosses worst nightmare and the workers friend. Also a grouchy bastard apparently. XD

Best day at work in a long while so far!

Hey Calax glad to hear from you again! Good luck on your upcoming interviews. If anyone is past due for a good break it's you.

Find it amazing how much one meeting can do to sap my will to go on at work.  Then I remember I have FOUR of them tomorrow.

^The room service menu here is nuts. A plate of (presumably) high quality sushi costs 45000 Yen (around $450)!

Today I m touring Asakusa and Akihabara.
