I installed my HID (high intensity discharge) lights almost a week ago, but it hasn't been dark while I wasn't busy yet. So I haven't taken any pictures. I also tried to give my tail lights a smoked look with spay paint, it didn't work and I had to clean it all off. I'll try again pretty soon. Anyways, until later....

I heard about this list at school. Its the best and worst cars based on the past Consumer Reports test drives and varius other tests. they are list alphebeticaly and divided into two lists. The lists are compiled from overall reliability information covering 1998-2005 models with better than average or much worse than average reliability. Only models that were in production for more than three years were included. Problems with the engine, engine cooling, transmission, and drive trains were weighted more heavily than other problems. The first list is the good list (and my car is on it)

I just bought an alarm system for my car, its going in on Monday.

I'm still waiting for my HID conversion, should be here this week.

One of my foglights is out, bought a new one and haven't had time to put it in yet.

Work is pretty crazy busy, school isn't as great as it once was.

I hit a concrete wall at 15 mph in the ice.

I play on a hockey team in a league on Monday night on rollerblades.

Almost went snowboarding today, but worked instead.

And I really want a Alpine Type R 10" sub, but don't have enough money because I just bought the alarm system.

And I can't keep the cats from walking on my car and I'm getting really irritated about that.

So Melissa will quit asking.

Pics of my board. I set it up the "Goofy" way, cause it seemed more natural to me. We'll see how it works out on the slopes.

Racer Christmas.

Twas the night before Christmas and caught at the light,
Was a domestic V8 and no cops in sight,
I will try, I will try, I will try with this turbo charged motor,
To beat this darn Camaro, even with it's big power,
As the light goes green and I pull hard no joke,
The Camaro erupts in clouds of tire smoke,
Now Smasher, now Rev-ver, now Stroker, now Blitzin,
These are the names of my four VTEC pistons,
Racing ahead I'm the Star of the Action,
Now I know I'm going to win even when that V8 gets traction,
Now grabbing second, my BOV whistle,
I can’t even hear the roar, of his big engine spittle,
All I do is keep that four-banger humming,
As he used up a half tank just to keep his car hulling,
In a second he’ll give up, but it sure was a blast,
That Camaros in the rear view, and a thing of the past,
Don't bother with crying, cause now it's too late,
He’ll try to act cool, like you can relate,
Looking up at my taillights as they start getting smaller,
I let off and waited a minute, just to give him a holler,
"You can't win them all," I say in a fling,"
You may not win any, in that big heavy thing",
He scowled and revved and let out a sigh,
And did his classic V8 trademark, high-speed fly-by.

Give a man a match and he'll be warm for a minute;
Set him on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

RPMs and V-tec, the replacement for displacement.
