    I learned the Texas Rangers kicked the Blue Jays' ass tonight. Teixeira made some damn good defensive plays tonight also. Gary Matthews has been on a roll in the past few games, also. FIRST PITCH of the game tonight and he hit a homer to get the game started.

    I learned that Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and George Jone's song "I Gotta Get Piss Drunk" is a good song to listen too while knockin back some Jim Beam--my best buddy!

    I learned that the combination of me showing I do a good job and s***ty managers in nearby stores means my DM calls me and asks me to go help clean up their store for them. I hate it, but I love it when a 20 year old shows up to clean up a manager's store that's twice my age because they can't cut it!!! MUHUHAHAHA!!! I'd never brag to anybody in real life, but since nobody on here knows who I work for or where I'm at, I figure what the hell. Gotta make my stuttering ass feel good somehow...

    I learned that putting in front control arms on an 80 after changing bushings is almost impossible alone (1 person--me!). I almost broke my back before calling for back up.

    And of course a call to our favorite 80's technicians in the Front Range.... ;)

    I learned that even though we moved tool boxes at work today, the new schedual/teams doesnt start till Monday so I still have to work tomarrow. I may not be able to go camping after all, dang.

    I learned that hurricanes push lobster out into deeper water and that I can't hold my breath as long as I used to.

    Oh crap, this is sposeto be what I learned yesterday...

    Ummm...I learned I can get the interior carpet all put back correctly on my mini after the clutch job and it's very satisfying to have the job done and not have screwed anything up (dang, actually I have one left-over part, a pin of some sort, I'll post a pic, I seriously have no idea where it came from, could ahve been a jack, or the tranny, clutch...who knows).

    I learned that replacing a CV joint on a Maxima is a PITA. And that it can take a LONG time, even when starting at 9:00pm (relatively early for us), getting home at 4:40am, then up at 7:45am again kinda sucks.

    I learned my friend's Miata (wanted a 30mpg vehicle for $3K or less, got a '91 Miata with 190K miles for $3K, cute car) with a rollbar we put in it looks pretty cool and is probably alot safer, it's like working on a gocart.. :D

    I meant for me. I've been known to post drunk in another forum I used to frequent a while back and make an ass out of myself.
