Is not a car wash?

I tried to wash my car after work today, since I haven't been able to wash it the last few weekends. (and won't be able to wash it this weekend either)

Manager stops me. So. Why can't I wash my car?
She says "Is not a car wash."

Uh. Right. I see people washing their cars here all the time and they've never been stopped. It's not in my lease either. Heck I think vehicle maintenance IS prohibited in my lease, but I see used oil containers around here all the time too, so vehicle maintenance is obviously going on. WTF!

Still, as much as I'd love to argue my point, I didn't-- which is why I'm kinda pissed off still and hence why I'm writing this post.

Why didn't I argue my point? Because I've got better things to do with my daylight. I'm always gonna be at work, out running, out at the racetrack, out hiking, out with my friends... sure I'd love to wash my car at my apartment, but not if I have to sneak around to avoid my manager every time and BS like that. I'd rather leave on peaceful grounds with my manager when I move out, so she refunds my security deposit instead of keeping the damned thing.

In the end, a few bucks on car washes gets me back the $600 from my security deposit and potentially several hours of my time dicking around with my manager.

Not a choice I like having to make, but I'd rather have my fun at the cost of $7.95 or $12.95 for a car wash once a month over sneaking around wasting an hour or three waiting for my manager to leave to wash my car.

Work takes too much energy.

Aka, work's been kicking my *ss lately.

So tired. Do check the what's new page for some updates I made last week, though! Labor Day weekend and a part with Alicia's friends...

What's a little weather?

NASA Earth Observatory shows us a little weather. Check out the Hurricane Isabel pics from September 16th and 17th. My goodness!

Satellite = paperweight, plus a video...

Don't drop that satellite. Ouch. At least Lockheed-Martin made the error, and not Boeing Space Systems. Man, if BSS made the error, a few of my friends might be looking for new jobs now! o_O

Unrelated video... `03 SVT Cobra vs. Mercedes E55 AMG. Modified `03 SVT Cobra, V8 supercharged and modified to 450rwhp... versus a bone stock Mercedes E55 AMG, V8 supercharged to 493 crank HP and 516lb of torque. The results are... impressive, to say the least.

And yeah, if I ever go out cruising in Cheston's 380rwhp 350Z, I will not provoke any CLK55/E55/S55/SL55/CL55's. =P

Updates... or not!

Currently playing: Postal Service - Such Great Heights
Gone all weekend, so no updates.

Something like 500 pictures to upload, though. Maybe less if I trim 'em down... or not. This may take a while. Very busy at work too, and I need to do a harddisk upgrade soon...
