Mine wasn't too exciting either. Spent 8 days driving to and all around Alabama as family didn't do me a favor and do a big combined Christmas. Got back in late Thursday night. The Mazda 3 averaged 38-39 mpg over the course of the entire 2k+ mile trip so no complaints there. Got pulled over in Tyler, TX on my way back. 16 over (downhill, limit went 60 to 50, but I wanted to make a pass and get back to the far right before slowing down as my turn was coming up shortly). Of course, he was sitting off to the side, in the dark, and I saw him as I was passing, before slowing down. Came for me, asked what I do at Ft Hood after seeing my Alabama license and I said I was coming from home for the holidays. "...Actually...I'm an MP" lol Asked if I had any of my "MP stuff" in the car...Uh...no... (I'm not the type that works the road, but wasn't going to say that much lol). In any case, he ended up coming back and telling me he'd written me a warning for 10 over, as "I clocked you twice. The first at 16 over, and you obviously realized you effed up because the second was at 10 over. So have a nice night, and slow your ass down." WOOT WOOT! I think I should start carrying around "MP stuff," maybe a baton, pepper spray, bullet proof jacket? haha

spent my day off today fiberglassing on the back of the lotus and prepping my new exhaust fan for paint.

Snow + awd + boost = . It amazes me how many accidents there was up here today. The roads weren't that bad, but that could be partly due to my awd

Wow. I think this may officially be dead. I haven't been on FF the past 2 weeks myself, and hardly on the computer at all really, as Kim came out here to Texas with me after the holidays. She just flew back to Birmingham this morning though so suddenly I'll have a lot more time on my hands. Or really, just boredom. Got a dog last weekend though. Really random. I had a second cat, a stray, I'd taken in a few months back to find out she had feline leukemia. I think it ended up getting to her a lot quicker than hoped/expected, as she died a few days after the first of the year. Got bored and was on craigslist and something had come up about dogs so I started looking. Found a post for a 6 month-old Husky/Lab mix for $20 and had a dog 2 hours later. He's turning out to be a pretty great find. Knows some basic commands, mostly house/crate trained, doesn't bark much, is great with my cat, good with other dogs. He's short-haired like a lab but has the coloring of a husky, brown shaded with gray on his sides and a dark brown, coarse stripe from his neck to his tail. Has the husky ears, but a little short in the face, almost looks like he may have something else mixed along the way. Gets compliments constantly. Loving it, and looks like he'll be a good running buddy to get me out each evening. Love my cat; Turbo is a nut and an attention whore, but a dog is man's best friend I suppose lol

Oh, and if anyone is ever in Austin, check out Esther's Follies. It's a comedy/musical/parody/magic show. Absolutely hysterical, especially the black guy playing Obama and their old-spice commercial-like Presidential speech. The place sits on Austin's popular 6th Street (think Beale Street or Bourbon Street) and the back side of the stage is a window looking out onto the street so you see people walking by, looking in, etc etc, and even some of the show occurs from the other side of the window along the sidewalk. On top of that, they have a comedy club next door that your tickets get you in for free, so we saw the Esther's show 8-9:30, caught the 9:30-11 stand-up show, went next door to eat at Casino El Camino's (it's a bar/dive featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives that we stumbled across and I recognized the name), then went back to the comedy club for the 11:30 show. Great night. Had I not just gotten a dog, we'd have gotten a room and hit up some of the bars perhaps.

That will be fun. Just found out yesterday my neighbor has a roommate. Who is building a buggy of his own in the garage lol It's a smaller frame and he's planning to put an 1100-1300cc motorcycle motor on it.

So after spotting my old focus a few times, I've figured out the new owner works very close to my unit on Ft Hood. Stopped by the car today and left a little note, so perhaps the guy gets on here. Maybe not. But it won't be due to a lack of knowledge as to the sites' existence and my name on here lol He's got a big white oakley sticker across the back window, and some other small sticker. Ew. Seeing it around is a love-hate thing. Great to see it, but damn, hard knowing it's not mine, being my first car and all with 108k miles since new. Sad.
