Purity of mind and body are mentioned throughout history as the hallmarks of a healthy existence. Both are great in concept, but neigh impossible to maintain and in excess damaging to modern society. See veganism and abstinence only sex education for evidence. ..I think schools should teach purity of purpose. Headstrong, relentless commitment to a single objective.   That objective?  Self improvement.

Clueless

Stacey Dash can get it anytime anyplace. Maybe the hottest 40yr old ever?

Sometimes it’s best not to tell everyone your good news.

I spent half the day looking at car blogs. A lot of the blogs I’ve been following for for a long time.  Growing up I really idolized a lot of these cats for the things they were doing with their cars. A lot  of people have left the import scene and probably with good reason. It turns out a lot of the stuff we thought was bad ass when I was in high school was actually pretty ghey. Ghey not gay. Being gay isn’t a choice, being ghey is. ..Anyway, these blogs are pretty much timeless and a lot of these folks have gone from being teenage street racers in Socal to legit industry icons.

Eric Hsu is one of the mainreasons I got into mechanical engineering. His  shop (XS Engineering) worked on a bunch of sick Rx-7’s, Skylines, and Supras that ended up in Import Tuner, Super Street, Sport Compact Car, Turbo etc etc. I would give up half my salary and sleep in a car to have this guy’s job.

Benson and Nadine Hsu met becuz they both drive 240sx’s. I liked them separate, but now they’re married and have a kid. Benson was one of the first US guys to get sponsored as a drifter and Nadine’s hatch has always been pure sex.

Mike Garret lives in Japan.  I went to high school with this guy! I wish I’d spent more time pestering him with car questions…

Ziptied isn’t really a blog, but these guys make me smile. If your car isn’t low enough to scrape pavement, it probably isn’t Ok with Ziptied.

Ziptied!

Just don’t do it son…

Ladies if you have backhair, please handle it. I know it’s natural, i know it’s not your fault, but you should handle it. Or have someone you know handle it. Handle it before I’m behind you in line at Trader Joe’s all excited about my chicken burrito w/ salsa and vanilla yogurt.

Had a way

What is Love?  Me and this song go way back. I loved it the first time I heard it, and a few years later I still feel the same way. It’s the 2nd verse that really gets to me.

Why do Engineers like ah da jiu jitsu?

I think this is gonna be a good week. I thought I was special because i’m an engineer, but it turns out there are a couple other engineers training at BTT. After training we hit Yogurtland, and I managed to hold myself to only a lb of yogurt.

The other thing that has me feeling optimistic is the naked guy I saw at the gym today. I walked in for a lunch time workout…really after lunch time so I could have the place to myself and suffer privately, but when I walked into the locker room there was a guy butt naked bent over grabbing his ankles. Real prison style in the shower type shit about 2ft in front of me. I couldn’t be behind this guy when he stood up, so I jumped around the corner and changed in the bathroom stall while I waited for my would be Felicia to put his clothes on. When I came out I realized this guy was the same guy, the same guy who’s 3 management levels above me and occasionally says “Hi” in the hallway. The same guy who’d written me an angry e-mail on Saturday(E-mails on Sat? WTF? this guy is only supposed to work 4-10’s) telling me I was in deep shit for something I’d already taken care of. I pretended like nothing had happened and mentioned how i’d already resolved the issues around my project. He didn’t exactly apologize, but I think he sees me in a more positive light than he did on Saturday.

Who knew?

I’ve said before that I don’t like people, and it’s only  recently figured out why I would say that.  It’s not that I don’t like people, it’s that people dissappoint me. Strangers, coworkers, friends, family. Sometimes I dissappoint me.  Some people make a bad first impression, others seem chill but turn out to be less than cool when you find out about all the dirt they’ve done. It’s not often that i’m pleasantly surprised when I sit down to talk to someone,  but i’m always excited when it happens. So far I’ve been on a bit of a hot streak in 2009.
