- So "despair" is a
bit alarmist, but I have a very good reason. It's
the 17th anniversary of an entry by the same title
back in the DAYYYYYY:
- Now, 17 years ago
on entry FIVE, that was indeed some despair. Our 3 man
team was down to 2 as they wouldn't let us put Marty
MOOSE on the lease, and for some reason come to
think of it were being total assholes about him living
there not being on the lease. Curious since it was
SECTION 8 HOUSING and we were the only fuckers
paying full price.
WHAT THE FUCK NOW I'M ANGRY.
- Anyway, 17 years
later although not outright "despair", this is
prettttttttttttty sketchy. Not sure how else to
describe this without you feeling the exact same thing
I did. Here we go...
Like, watching that again? I feel absolutely hopeless.
Nothing about that fucking scenario was positive and
all you can do is wait. For a WEEK. He doesn't even
leave until Monday and then he's guessing around 4
days. Fuck me. I am indeed going to complain to
Montway and make certain on the trip back that
I get a REAL truck. One that isn't so long
it gets ticketed for being on the fucking road. One
that doesn't scrape my car up getting into it.
ONE THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE LIVESTOCK ON IT.
- So there we are.
The start of a long journey whose conclusion is
uncertain. HA. Throwback to 2000 AGAIN dawg. Man,
about 2 people are going to really enjoy that
- For me as I
mentioned in the last entry I have been studying
like a crazy man. Trying to shoot every possible hole
in what Kenny thinks he can do. It's devil's advocate
for sure, but I gotta say: this dude knows his
shit. Like, of course he should know more than me, but
the speed at which he not only answers a question, but
adds to it and then ends up teaching ne even more?
We've had hour long discussions every day this week.
He works all day at his job, then has to come home and
listen to me asking completely off the wall questions
on what's possible. He's been nothing but patient and
is happy to explain things. I can't get over the
breadth of what it takes to build a performance motor.
The variables that go into race cars and horsepower.
It's fascinating to me and I'm quite impressed with
just how much can be accomplished when you've actually
gone to school for something like this.
I don't mean to wax poetic on my surprise, but yes,
I can admit... I am surprised. I truly
didn't know Kenny as an adult and I guess you just
presume he's like the kid he was at 9. Of fucking
course he isn't but again he's more than even that.
He, knows, his, shit. Assuming my FUCKING CAR
EVER GETS THERE it will be in good
- Let this week fly
by please. Ugggggggggh.
