Out of the Blue

Funny that the car talk in the forums yesterday touched on the subject of minivans... Sure enough being car-less in the suburbs was an immediately untenable position, leading to a trip to the rent-a-car place, where I ended up renting a Chrysler Pacifica for a couple of days. I gotta say, it's pretty nice... it's pretty motivated for a big vehicle with a V-6 and handles quite nicely for a front driver. It's just hard adjusting to my new temporary image as a soccer mom.

I am sure this thread has dangerously veered off-topic and I do not have the time to read through a 100 threads.

But Blue, have you considered the new Dodge Magnum with the Hemi? Lots of rooms for the kids and groceries in the back to keep the wife happy, and the Hemi in the front to keep the man happy.

I was thinking of getting one (with the Hemi!), but my fiancee torpedoed that idea pretty quick She hates any type of wagon shape, including all the car-based SUVs that are now the fad.

But get the Magnum Hemi Blue - hopefully I can live vicariously through you

Friends do not let EVIL piglets play Doom 3!

What if they are semi-evil? Say they like to poke things with sharpy pointy sticks, just not in the eye? Can they play then?

Or Evil in a good way? Besides, I thought it was 'Friends don't let friends play Doom 3 with a GeforceMX card"?

There isn't enough Doom 3 in this thread for it to be in the top 6. Blue, you're gonna have to change it's title or remove it from the top 6.

My epic "Doom 3 pwns the top 6 threads" screanie relies upon you making the right decision and changing the title to "Doom 3 Minivan" or something similar.

99. Just got back frome from vacation Jul 23, 2004, 01:45 Jim
 
5 days in Death Valley and White Mtn (in Inyo National Forest) on an astronomy club excursion, and looks like some exciting news happened when I was away.

Kinda makes coming home from vacation a bit like Christmas. Downloading a Doom 3 movie at this time.

Como estan, bitches?

Hmmm... if you're trying out your new Counter-Strike:Source taunts, well, I'm just not 'feeling it'. You have to be a bit more edgy. Something along the lines of:

Fuck with me again and I'll scoop out your gonads with a spoon, bitch!

But maybe that's one for Halsy.

Not sure who makes diesel minivans. At $2.39 a gallon for regular unleaded gas or biodiesel from kitchen grease at the same price, biodiesel gets better mileage and smells like onions.

I am taking care of myself as much as possible.
Speaking of healthy, since a lot of people where interested in the taste of the new half carb/calorie coke when it came out, thought I would offer this.

I had the new Pepsi Edge today (half carb and calories).
The difference in it and original Pepsi was a lot less than the difference between regular coke and C2. I imagine if it was ice cold with ice in it, I would not have known the difference actually. It will now be my Cola of choice. Good tasting and not too bad for you!

Though now I also understand why and how you where able to get so serious so fast about our e-mail exchange conversations.

Thanks again for your advice. I've made some tremendous progress so far. I'm very pleased with what I'm seeing!

except when you destroy your finger catching a football…LOL…sissy!

That was pretty weak. I can't wait to throw one without a stupid splint.

As for the concerns about my heart. Heart disease runs in the family for men. The only men that last are type b's.

I'm anything but a b.

I am taking care of myself as much as possible. Just ask Shane!

I wish that guy would show us the rest of the pristine environment surrounding that computer. I'm sure the shine from the desk from the repeated cleanings with Pine-Sol and bleach would cause a serious glare which would prevent quality pictures. Mix in some Lysol and some rat traps. I'm certain that in between photographing rodents in his computer(it has to be a guy) he's busy finding a cologne to compliment the ass/sweat stink that permeates his room.


I can see the Budweiser commercial now.

...It's just hard adjusting to my new temporary image as a soccer mom.

Ahhh... the joys of being young and single. I just dropped $4000 on a new engine for the Camaro (and it still needs paint and an interior yet). I guess I'll have to do a burnout for each of you poor slobs that don't get to enjoy an impractical, 'fun' car!

Eventually I'll have to upgrade my rig but I'm waiting for the Doom demo and of course, Tribes:Vengeance.

Explosive hearts.
Are we talking naturally, or by way of guns?
Perhaps they where bank robbers.
Perhaps you should go dig up some relative’s back yards?
