    A new low in boredom, a new high in OCD behavior.

    Mind you, this was after I gave the racoon a haircut and changed out his pickups.

    Hmm.... below freezing here today. Got a little snow. But I did get my tabs in the mail yesterday. Should warm up a little for a few days, but rainy, then back to the 40's. I need a new jacket.

    Official ice-out on Lake Minnetonka yesterday at 9:48AM. More than two weeks ahead of normal.

    -11C (10F or so). Sunny but the snow's not melting yet. I'm so envious of you folks down south.

    4 out of 5 dentists reccomend Meguiers. Don't know what you use on teeth.

    Water cooled, no fins...but I did give the pet seal a bath too. His fins were fairly clean.

    After 4 cups of high octane java, I was especially industrious this morning...and frankly the little ba$t@rd needed it.

    I'm a mechanic. When I'm not at work I hate thinking about cars.

    My neighbor on the other hand is a bonafide car guy. Everything about them; working on them, customizing them, painting them, detailing them, sound systems, interiors...the works. He's also the kind of guy that is ALWAYS in his driveway doing something.

    One time I came home from a particularly bad day at work, and he was in the driveway with the transmission out of his Datsun pickup, and was scrubbing the bell housing with a toothbrush. I asked him what in the world he was doing, and he told me the truck had a small power steering leak he fixed, but kept getting residual drips on the driveway, that were coming from a small pool of fluid on top of the trans. So he pulled it out to scrub it with a toothbrush.

    I didn't have any idea how to respond to that so I went in the house without a word.
