Well done Melina, your brain seems fine to me

I would find this sexy in a woman " OK babe, you keep the remote"

The 2000 s4 came with a bi turbo 2.7liter from the factory, I rebuilt the car with slightly larger turbos and had the ECM chipped. I got the car for $500 bucks, but was not driveable since the clutch was blown, and needed a lot of work. Kinda been a project car/ daily driver. The GF's car is a 2006 Audi A4 that has the 2.0 liter turbo in it. She just got that one a couple of weeks ago.

Beautiful sunny day and 60 degrees F here
We had a snowstorm Wed. and I had to take a snowday.
They say if you don't like the weather here, wait 15 minutes
and that seems to be true of late

Just got back from a hike. I actually got hot, wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt and a thin fleece jacket. Crazy February weather here. But I love it!!

Ouch GS! Hope you're okay! My eyes are watering thinking about it!

Good ol Bryan Adams. He knows just what to say!

I saw a cute guy the other day but he was smoking. When I smoked that was kind of a prerequisite. Now....not so much.

His thread is so funny, I love how there's always 3 different conversations going on haha

Melina: do you have a park or outdoor space you can hang out in? I find any kind of exercise outdoors always lifts my mood. Xoxo

Speaking of which; I just went for a walk along the river in the rain so crazy to have rain instead of snow- it was a beautiful walk though, and the pathways were pretty much empty.

I found smart recovery meetings for almost everyday of the week here, I'll give it a whirl.
I like AA speaker meeting because I like listening to stories so maybe I'll check those out too.

I watched the movie " Amy" last night about Amy Winehouse, a perfect example of how alcohol kills- poor girl

Tomorrow I'm going to begin running up and down some steep wooden stairs by my house that go up the side of a big hill.
I believe that there are 120 steps.
I'm planning on doing some serious hiking this summer, and I have at least one backpacking trip for 8 days; along the west coast with some serious elevation- so I'm going to start preparing now.
I should quit smoking, but I'll worry about that later.

Wow, I'm on page 1 of the second part of the thread! Of course, I've missed everything on the other thread and will now need to go back.

I went to a meeting this morning, then stopped to buy a couple of books for a birthday present. Ate lunch. Now waiting to pick up daughter from birthday party. We're going to a fundraiser/spaghetti dinner tonight.

Weather is gorgeous!! Mid 50's today. Then 60s tomorrow. Then plummeting back to freezing and snow for the work week. March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb? Guess so.

GS, I hope you get the ghost pepper powder out of your eye. That sounds really, really painful.
