Mechanics can suck my damn toes

I've mentioned in the past my car troubles and my eternal quest to fix the issue.  I've gone through 4 different mechanics who were highly talked of, and then in the end took it to my cars dealership since they should know how to fix their own fucking car.  First they tried acting all knowledgeable by pointing out that the computer in my car, its little black box, had been wiped by the previous mechanic and so they wouldnt be able to pin point the issue quickly.  I was all like ok I understand that.  They did some tests and found 2 of the engine valves were cracked and letting in air, or something of the sort, and this would cause the car to just switch off because it wasnt firing properly or WHATEVER.  I nodded cluelessly and paid them the $2200 to fix it.

So I got the car back and tested it some.  After a few days it did the same thing again.  It did it multiple times.  So a few days ago I called up and took it back in.  The guy originally said that if the problem is still there and linked to what they did then it wouldnt cost anything to repair again.  Absolute rubbish.  First I got some new guy who said I would be charged $180 for them to look at it.  I said no, its doing the same thing as before.  The guy said yes but its standard policy.  I said no again.  He asked this other girl who in turn said its policy.  I told them firmly no, I was told by such and such.  They go and speak to the original guy and hes all like yeah wave it off.  So I leave thinking yay.  He calls me later in the day and tells me they cant find a fault with it and I would have to pay them by the hour until they figured it out.

Now I'm furious.  I said I'd call him back.  Got onto consumer affairs, told them all my issues, and they decided to be as useless as the mechanics.  Sorry but your car is old and its a problem with old cars.  No!  FUCK YOU!  My car has done 120,000 km in distance!  I've seen cars on 150k go for 12 grand!  Makes me rage.  So called mechanic back and said why am I paying since its the same issue?  He said the thing they put in is working fine so its a different issue.  I said did you check the black box.  He said yes but nothing has been recorded.  Thanks black box, you're as useless the mechanic.  He said the only way for them to find out whats wrong with it is if I can replicate.  My patience was gone.  Told him I CANT replicate it, and even if I could, the stupid internal computer is recording no fault, so all you'd see is the car TURN OFF.  Then what?  Will you know MAGICALLY whats wrong with it when the car turns off in the exact same description I've given you?   He had the modesty to at least say no.

So thats it really.  I have a car that no one can fix.  So its basically useless to me.  And I'm out 3 grand trying to repair it.  I'm hoping my luck changes and I find a job soon so I can get a new car.  For now I'm going to just roll in the garden for a while.  Maybe a poisonous snake/spider combo, coupled with an attack from a kangaroo and crocodile, will end my misery.

At least it started raining outside  The one thing that can cheer me up a little.  More storms plz.

My presents to myself

The best presents are the ones I buy myself.  Because I know exactly what I want.  But I've been waiting for the Power Loader for a stupid amount of time and today I went in and picked it up with a few other things.   I spent a couple hours shifting blurays off the shelf and putting it on another one.  Sadly I'm running out of room so the plan to throw some old stuff out is coming into affect.  Like this gamecube for example.  Oh sure it sounds harsh to want to throw something like that away.  Especially since I loved playing it about 500 times more then the wii.  It had so many amazing games.  But if I wanted to buy one today it would cost around $10-15.  Theres just NO REASON to keep it taking up space with all its cords and joypads.  Plus a bunch of other crap.  My older PC games that I already have digital copies of on steam etc are going in the bin because I do not need these damn boxes taking up so much room..  ANYWAY!  My Power Loader!!

I took my Ripley figure and stuffed it in there.  Looking good!  Once I make some room by throwing out a bunch of crap the rest of the blurays on that shelf are being moved and my other Alien/s figures are going up.  Must have my Aliens shelf.  Going to look delicious!  I also reflex bought some Holy Grail pops because I adore that film.

Hopefully they keep an eye on that vorpal Bunny!

Happy 40th to me!

Finally smashed 40!  Feels no different!  And the world is still shit!  So I dont need to adapt to anything thankfully.  For today I'm just going to focus on the fact that I can, whether a good idea or not, stuff my face with as much cake as I want.  And here is a picture of the bounty I bought!  Some will go to guests, most will go to my stomach.  Because I'm hardcore like that!

The luck of the irish

So finally got my car back a week ago.  Tossed over $2200 for repairs.  Now hoping it actually is fixed while I drive it around during the evenings for tests.  So far it seems to be going good.  Only did one strange thing but I dont know how important it was.  Generally by this time I would have had that stupid thing shut down 4-5 times on me.  It cant go more then 3 days max without exploding.  If it goes for another week without stopping then I'll be very happy.  Sadly this hasnt brought my car a reprieve at all.  Once I find work I'll be getting a new car. This one pissed me off one too many times.  Besides its about 17 years old.  Time to move it on.  If any rich person out there wants to send memoney and is really rich, feel free.  Or if your mum or sister are single and rich.  I'm not a money centric guy in the least.  Or superficial.  But if they're filthy rich I can be whatever the world wants!

As a side note I've decided christmas is when I'll be aiming to announce something huge here.  It's massive huge.  I've been wanting to say something for a few months now but have been waiting on a couple things to be complete.  But very soon....very soon...

Finishing off I decided to try my luck with those little toy packet things you see at the store, where you have no idea whats inside of it but its 1 of like a dozen miniature characters from a certain show/movie.  I noticed one for Alien and saw the character Kane with the baby alien bursting out of his chest.  I had to give it a shot to see what would happen, and I really had no problem if it was another thing because I'd be happy with all of them.  But what happened when I opened the packet?  BOOM!  I made lady luck my bitch, thats what happened!!!

Right now hes standing next to my Ariel Pop.  I sense romance....
