At the shop - Quiet day, few PDI'* and a brake job.

Truck - Took a drive to the next town to get a new fishing rod as I snapped mine in two over the weekend. Came side by side with a 2012 or 2013 Mustang on the freeway and ran him. Showed him how easy a truck can beat him.

went to the fair for the demo derbies, real sad that i didnt get to race and that everyone kept coming up to me asking why i wasnt in the races.. ill be back in next year..

then went out with the boyfriend and the cops were CRAZY we went two tracking then when i took him back to his truck we JUST stopped and a sheriff came flying into the parking lot and shined his light on us wanted to know what we're doing he checked our IDS accused him of being drunk when he wasnt and then let us go.. but waited there until we both pulled out.. then we went downtown and got pulled over again after just passing 3 other cops and a different one pulled me over while he was with me and said he couldnt see my tail lights.. there had to of been like 10 cops cruising around it was nuts!

Leave it to a cops discretion if he can see your tails. They sometimes LOOK for reasons to pull you over. Oh yup, it'* end of the month, they are trying to catch up on quotas.

Attempted to change my brake pads, seems the inside pad on my right front shattered and is now MIA.. but the bolts were in too tight to get with my limited resources. Looks like I have to bring it to a garage tomorrow. yay...

It would be great if I had said pipe. It sucks living in an apartment building without access to any "useful" tools (like a pipe). That'* one thing I liked about living at my parent'*.. I had access to all those things.

You can't store a pipe anywhere in your apartment?

Do you under the stairs of the complex or something?
