and a good morning to YOU, sir

well, I've been futzing with the oil filter cover for my '79 yama xs1100f for months now. It really became an issue a few weeks ago when I tried to ezout it, drilled through it, and found out it was hollow. (thus losing all the oil in my bike).

I'm so high right now -- a shot of jack daniels. Just one. Okay, so I'm not that high, but I am buzzed.

You know that feeling when you have an utterly empty stomach and you drink a glass of water? How it coats all the way down your esophagus and you can feel it trickle around the sides of your stomach, and it makes you just the slightest bit nautious?

Well... I just did that with good old jack. It was very strange. I don't know what I was thinking (Oh yes I do -- I was thinking, "what the hell? It's not too early and it's not too late and what else am I doing? It'll be a nice shot of energy, pure and simple)... and it was a good shot of energy. Slightly off-kilter but definitely energy, and definitely good energy.

I think I'm going to finish doing dishes, cleaning up from my motorcycle (oh, I did mention it was slighlty off-kilter energy, right? bouncing around?)... so I got the oil filter cover off and the oil filter bolt. Now I'm shopping around for a new bolt -- $20. Fun! If I'm really lucky, it'll be in in a day or two. Less lucky, a week or so. Even less lucky, a month or two. We'll see.

Right. So now all I need is a new bolt and my bike will be rideable again! Whoohoo! Then I can pick up the K&N air filter I ordered that came in the day I drilled a hole through the bolt, and ... yeah. Stuff. Lots of stuff. :)

I suppose that's about all. Off to cleaning and all that shite. :) [I really like the sound of "shite" -- I suppose it's that slight off-kilterness]

    Ah, feedback loops. I was kind of out of sorts, yesterday, and for some reason had a lot of diet coke (to try to feel better, though I "knew" it…

    What would I say, if I were here? It's 2014, almost 2015—though on and off this year, I've been sure it was 2015. Something about that number. Next…

    A friend recently asked for a list of all the games I have available. And I'd made most of this list up a week ago, for someone else, and figured,…
