OFFICIAL E46 Off Topic Thread
 
Well, since every other section basically has one, I decided to make one for us. Anything goes!! :thumbup:


I have to go to work in an hour and I have to go to the post office :(

Ryans323i 02-13-2010 07:11 AM

Firsties!

I'm sick of snow. The muscles in my legs are diminishing from the lack of pedal pushing. :(

KrisL 02-13-2010 07:21 AM

Moving sucks. so. bad. Friends with trucks will be here in a few hours.

but I'm looking forward to getting into my new place so I can start over.

-KrisL, now single.

Sorry to hear that, Kris. I didn't know. What is going to happen with the house?

Solidjake 02-13-2010 07:31 AM

Kris, sorry to hear that bro, but I hope it's for the best. At least you can finish that list of beers :)

Ryan, luckily I have minimum feet to snow contact this week.

Well, I'm off to work, be on in 30 min or so.

Ouch... :(

Solidjake 02-13-2010 07:58 AM

Alright I'm back. Got myself some coffee and pound cake. I need to switch detergents, if I start to sweat or something I start getting itchy all over my upper body :(

Yeah, my credit is going to suck (so is hers). This will be the first late payment/delinquency on my credit report *ever*, so I'm hoping I can recover it to a point where I'm at least "lendable" in under 3 yrs. I've got no other debt and still love my car & motorcycle so I'm in good shape financially otherwise. Since we didn't refinance, I can walk away - no financial judgment can be made against me (no tax implications either).

Unfortunately California is a no fault/community property state so even though things were ...her fault..., she got away with my retirement :(.

Well, having been through divorce, bankruptcy and losing $100k bucks equity in the house we lost, I can tell you that what you are doing will be far less destructive to you credit. I bought a house 4 years later, so there is life after this. Hang in there! At least you have a nice E46 with the best interior I have ever seen! :thumbup:

That's why I took up running, so I could cross-train in the Winter. Riding in the stand is too boring for me. We've just begun a dry spell, so I will probably go for this ride tomorrow: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...erritory385225 (an out and back over a fairly remote road with a very tough climb - 2 climbs actually - the South side, and then the North side on the way back home).

mujjuman 02-13-2010 09:48 AM

Nice looking ride but so close to Altamont...watch out for Angels with pool cues...

Anyone else find it strange that it is about 40 degrees at Daytona today. Those guys must be freezing at 198mph with the window down!

mujjuman 02-13-2010 10:19 AM

Sorry to hear that Kris. Divorce is tough. Been there, done that, got a tee-shirt and promptly burned it.

I've been single now for 11 years. Six months ago I met a wonderful woman and fell in love with her. Two days ago I asked her to marry me and she said yes! So I am now engaged and we are planning to tie the knot at the end of May! :)

:rofl: :eeps:


CONGRATS!!!!! :D:D:D:D

CarlsonTheFlyer 02-13-2010 10:41 AM

Hahaha! I guess it was Freudian slip. :D

Thanks Jake!

Solidjake 02-13-2010 10:46 AM

:lmao: ;) Is that so?


So what's her name?

jonathan2263 02-13-2010 10:55 AM

In F1 they use tire warmers so the tires are basically operating temp when they leave the pitlane . Nascar doesn't so the tires are ambient temp. First few laps must be "exciting".

Carlson The Flyer , Congratulations...Well Done .

Solidjake 02-13-2010 10:56 AM

o0 ok. Expect some nice crashes because that's what Nascar is all about :bustingup
