What's been up lately? Well yesterday we had another outing at Lake Panorama, which was nice. I golfed for the first time this year and shot pretty good - only hit 1 duffer and 1 slice. However, Nick and I got paired up with JD in a best shot "tournament." And if you don't know JD... all I can say is that he's really good at golf. So our group ended up 3 under, which was a 34, w00t! ...25 of those shots were JD's, haha.
After golf we went to Nehru's for a fantasy football draft. I'm not into football really, and especially not into fantasy football, but since Doug couldn't make it - I drafted his players, haha. I hope he does good. I have no idea what I picked.
Aside from that, Kari and I have been sticking around town. Last weekend we hung out with some friends, went to a tent party, shopped for trucks, etc. Actually, shopping for trucks was sorta fun, and sorta not fun. I decided that I really don't like trucks, especially when I try to picture myself driving them. The trucks I can afford are so not me. It's frustrating. If I'm gonna be in a truck, I want a big extended cab F150, billet grill, lifted, huge tires, and black tint. That or a Ford Lightening - lowered, and fast. Yeah, my bar is high... but I don't want to lower it. That's sorta like failure. I just need to keep figuring things out. My goal is still to get an i35i Europian Delivery Style
. Ha. Stupid goals.
So back to trucks, I'm not digging this Ford Ranger, Chevy S10 business at all. Both look so feminine. It's hard for me to throw down $10,000 on something that I don't really like. But I guess a truck is just the smartest thing to do at this point - despite the crappy gas mileage and general hick feeling.
So, obviously the car situation is not going smoothly. I also haven't really decided what to do with my talon yet. I got it all cleaned up and took some pics so I can try to sell it. But I just can't bring myself to do that yet. It's worth a good $2000 even without it running. But, getting it all cleaned up just made me want to love it again, haha.
Grrr. Decisions are easier when money is not a variable. Money is stupid. Cars are awesome. I'm confused.
