Sprucing up the old girl.

Finally getting off my ass and getting the car in shape.

Sonny The Geek did the body work on the car. I helped, I did so! Shut up! Every venture requires management, supervision and quality control.

Course, someone, and I am not naming any names (Boy) was messing with the cell phone camera and the resolution was screwed up so the pictures are small.

Anyway, Sonny did a great job. Got rid of the rust spots. I got myself new hubcaps and I think she looks better. Of course, once you put new paint on the parts you fixed, then you start seeing all the scratches on all the rest of it. That is when you debate wether to grab a couple extra cans of paint and do the whole thing. (Does that make me a redneck?)

Here are a few before and after shots.

So, the boy waxed it for me today.

But couldn't resist giving his a wipe down too.

I think she looks pretty good. I also have a chrome pin-stripe that I will put down the center of 'er.

After that I should be able to find her in the parking lot at the mall, don't you think? Right now I look like an Alzheimer's patient in the parking lot.


Couldn't wait to do the pin-stripe. It's subtle, but I like it.

And how was your week?

I seem to have turned into a lump.

Nothing interests me, nothing pissing me off. Nothing worth ranting about, or rather, things pissing me off so much that I have been reduced to just a guttural moan on the subject.

What is there to say? The world is going to shit, or has already gone. The crap on TV isn't worth watching, the news is just a sponsor biased regurgitation of what everyone else is broadcasting.

Do they even keep records of what they were spewing last week, last month? Ten minutes ago? Just because he is dead, now you no longer think he is a pedophile? Or does it matter now that the king is dead, lets not bring up the dirty laundry, its in such bad taste. Give me a break.

I am not saying I think he was a pedophile, no one knows for sure. But I certainly don't think he was the second coming of Christ either. But give the media another week, the rest of the world will.

So, what have I been doing? Pretty much trying to ignore everything, in the hopes that it will just go away.

No such luck.

MJ 1958 - 2009

I don't know about you but I found it tacky.

Now I only caught the last half of it, but dark glasses at a funeral? Is this normal? Seemed like half those people were wearing those glasses to hide the fact that their tears were fake.

I know what you are thinking.....BITCH! I don't pretend to be anything else but to me it was like, his life was a circus side show and they carried it on into his funeral.

Say what ya want about the freaky'ness that was his life, he was one super talented dude.

Now it is over, maybe the poor man can rest in peace.
