    Oh boy the feels thread. I'm bummed that SoA is taking their sweet-ass time with shipping my short block because they think that there's a dock strike on the west side, I don't have the patience to prove to them that the strike has been over since the beginning of February because they won't be able to do shit about it. Meanwhile I'm using my second car and hoping to god that it doesn't leave me stranded on the side of the road until I'm done Lazarusing my subaru....of course the 240lyfe never disappoints and my POS13 sputters on the highway leaving me stranded on the road, and an hour late to work. Now I'm stuggling with finding the problem, which I have no idea what it could be. Fuel? Air? Bad luck? This is just a little taste into my life, I could write a book explaining my depression haha
    My greatest feat with my car is the constant willingness to keep it on the road for no apparent reward.

    I work at the fantastic place called Sears, so that and my bank account are bumming me out. But I just won the auction for a set of wheels, so that's kinda nice!

    Had to buy exhaust for car-there goes my tax refund and the reason I'm not going to be in MD next weekend. And my job-leaves me tired,angry,frustrated, and depressed-thinking about going back to school, again.

    I was hoping to get my steering rack changed out before I drove down to MD for the meet next weekend, but it looks like the weather is not going to cooperate with me between now and when I have an appointment for tires/alignment on Tuesday

    I also have been fighting with my wireless phone carrier about a number portability request for the last 5 days. I have been without use of my phone number for that entire time, and now they are telling me that it will be another 72 hours before it will be complete.. mind you this is after 3 different "24 hour" time blocks so far.

    My motto is "there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes". If you plan it out and prepare I bet you can get it done, unless the bottom of your car is an ice ball.

    Good weather is desirable, but sometimes there's a deadline and it just needs to get done.

    Well, it is 32 degrees outside and windy. I do not have a garage to work in, and I do not feel like lying down in the snow to do the job, so I guess I will just have to deal with it later.

    We'll just have meet up the week after the MD meet and lie down together-My shop forman won't let me use the shop on Sunday to replace my exhaust system-so, I'll be jacking up the car and doing it on my back.

    I saw it, but I wondered how long it was going to be before someone else noticed it.

    If it was any other thread I would make fun. In all seriousness tho working on cars in the snow is a bucket of suck.
