For items like calipers and pads most automotive stores will take the old ones back for a partial refund.

That's what I fucking thought. You know how sometimes when a bolt's been on there a while, you have to give it a bit more ofa crank to get it started? Well, it siezed 2/3 of the way down, and I gave it that much power, and it just fucking snapped.

Also interesting to note: There are 7 (!) seperate recalls on my year, make and model of car.

Yesterday was basically me refereeing a bunch of soccer games.

I did make $75-100 for a few hours' work, though.

If only my feet weren't still sore.

All our soccer refs were dicks.

Animals I saw today: dogs, deer, rabbit, lizards, horses. Most of these are rarities in the city.

Surely not. I am merely a humble servant of the rules.

That said, I wished I had a metal whistle on a string so I could hit the kid who ANGRILY COMPLAINED about my awarding a penalty against his team when they were down 8-0 with a few minutes to go.

To satisfy my own curiousity, have you ever done one of those CarFax reports on your car?

We almost hit a coyote today on our lunch break.

And I see deer and rabbits in the city all the time, and horses every single goddam day.

Actually, I hit a rabbit the other day coming home from the grocery store.

Yeah, the way Carfax is set up, it's designed to screw you unless you're looking to purchase a car, and are running 30+ VIN#'s

Also, What type of recalls were there? Some can be overlooked, like improper rearview mirror mountings. Some cannot, like motor mounts.


Also just to refresh my memory what was the make, model and year of your car?

97 Chevy Cavalier. They vary from inproper length of the windshield wipers to faulty controller arms on the rear axle.

Speaking of apartments, the Stomping One is back downstairs again. I guess he had some buddies renting it over the summer. I want to fill his walls with canned tuna.

Badical. I was thinking about it the other day: what would I need to do to get a motorcycle!
