Yeah I need to pay more attention to driving. Almost died this morning on the way to work thanks to not looking both ways.
Today was a mess with the DMV, I went there nice and early on about 4hrs of sleep. Only to see a line of people already out front sitting in law chairs. At first I thought it might have been a protest or someting… But it was just people waiting for the DMV to open. After weeks of worrying about my smog test I passed, then I had a VIN inspection… which I passed (Last I knew my car was my car and was not stolen). Then after waiting about 20 minutes I was called to the desk. Everything was going smooth, until they checked my insurance. I have insurance but when I registered it online I guess I typed the VIN incorrectly, so all along my car has not been covered by insurance. They let that slide and gave me my plates. I had to make about a 10 minute call with progressive and everything was straightend out.
Now to get my stereo installed this weekend and my car wont be as bad to legally cruise around it.
Its really nice living more in the city now, as I can walk just about anywhere. Lots of benefits to it, not only has the tank of gas in my car lasted about a month but I am also getting some much needed exercise. Why anyone would want to live outside of a big city is beyond me.
So the other day I was getting some gas and a frappuccino before work and who did I see… Jay Leno. He was driving this crazy looking car. And I couldn’t help but make a comment on it. It was a chilly morning and as you can see the car has no roof or really a windshield on it. Anyways we made some short talk for a second and then after he came back out from paying for his gas he looked over at my car. I then made a comment about wanting to trade…. he declined saying that my car was too large for him.
I heard that term on the radio today while driving in the 50 degree weather and thought to myself “Who at the Radio station knows me?” … Anyways thats a whole different thought in itself. I stopped this morning to get gas and decided to pick up a “Magic Tree Car Freshener”, supposed to give the new car scent, personally I think it smells like roadkill with my grandma’s perfume sprayed on it.
This weekend I really dont have too many plans, except for going down the Long Beach to hang out with my buddy Josh who is in town for work training. We are planning on hitting up some concert in that area, should be cool but I guess I wont know until Saturday. Other than that everything is about the same just working a lot and not sleeping as much as I would like. Sean is planning to move down here sometime soon, I am hoping before the end of the month things work out and we can get a new place closer to the action.
So many of you have prob. noticed that I haven’t updated this site in a long time, mainly I just have been a bit to busy with work and life. I have been trying to get to know the new area that I am living in and just enjoying the people I know in the area. I also haven’t really had much to write about in the last couple of weeks since my day mainly consists of driving and hour to and from work, and working long hours. The job is treating me well except for when I am on call over the weekend and the power goes out to the datacenter, that always sucks.
Last week I had to get the brakes fixed on my car and it cost me $600… not only that but some jackass backed into my car while it was in their parking lot. I just moved the site over to my V-Dedicated account at work, this way I can tweak around apache/php and other server settings and actually have a production site working to test the load. If you notice any errors with slow page loads, pages not loading etc make sure to drop me a comment of a post.
Halloween is coming up and I still dont have a clue of what I am going to be. My boss is having a Halloween party so I have to be something else well I will stick out as the ass with out a costume.
I am getting pretty excited to head back to Michigan for Thanksgiving, it will be nice to see my friends and family. Not to mention ShelbyCon v2.0 will be taking place which should end up being pretty rad. Anyways I need to get some other stuff done around here so I am going to cut this post short, but I will try to keep it updated daily like I used to.
