Bought this the other day. Liked the original version. This one has good reviews and was 80% off... So $6, and hell yeah, gimmie that. Haven't started playing yet but it's gonna be a long Winter.

I thought about going stick, even has the extra pedal already... But...Its just so much easier and faster to go with an automatic with O/D.

Too lazy to go out and take a picture of the garage. Having a new A/C system installed. We've been in this house 22 years, and this is now the 2nd new system we've paid for. Likely won't even be the last. At least I'll get a lot of cash back with credit card rewards.

Glad I came home from Vegas with my winnings. It helps soften the blow.

Wrong-o. I've been lucky in my career as a civil engineer to have worked on almost all areas of the profession, and may as the engineer of record. I've done exactly one rail yard, and one bridge. The only thing I haven't done, and will never do, is a high-rise building.

I found a place locally to buy real mozzarella cheese made from water buffalo milk. Yummy.... Insalata Caprese made the closest I can get to how it was made back home.

I prefer a better brand, but that stuff is expensive to have flown in from Italy

Console with storage under the cover, with cup holders and USB port, electric controls, top grain leather. I got the love seat instead of a single recliner cuz my 18 year-old cat needs somewhere to sleep.

But I won't get it for 8-10 weeks. My sis just recently got a couch that they had to wait 11 months for. Thanks government, for purposely ****ing up the free market using a gain-of-function flu virus as the excuse.

My new Dell laptop isn't any better than the 3 year-old ASS-is was. It's even worse in some ways, it boots slower and wakes slower after sleeping. I've pared the start-up process down to bare bones but it doesn't seem to help.
