1. My scooter club bought this on Sunday:
It's a 1982 Bajaj Safari and we love it. On the maiden voyage, I managed to roll it on its side, ejecting Susie on to the street in the process, almost killing us both. Did I mention that it has no rear brakes? Yeah. There's no rear brakes. The little voice in my head that tells me not to drive things with no rear brakes is apparently on vacation. Anyway, we're gonna get it set up with rear brakes and then drive it again.
Aside from the almost getting killed thing, I'm so psyched about this vehicle. It has so much potential. Mobile tiki bar? Wagon full of clowns? Rally support vehicle? Mobile-mini-jacuzzi? The possibilities are endless, although I hate clowns.
2. I got a big ass promotion today. I'm now the official QA manager. I've been the acting QA manager for about a month and a half or so. Hopefully, the officialness of my new title comes with a big fat raise, cause I need to get some brakes working on that Bajaj Safari. One thing it definitely came with is a SUPER FLY office. It's basically the corner office with nice views of Elliot Bay and West Seattle, and the Cascades, and people changing clothes in the apartments across the street. Check out my view:
I have a ton of space in here, and a big ass dry erase board. And I can play the Cramps through my speakers without headphones. And nobody's looking over my shoulder while I play e-scrabble. Yep... things are good. Now if we can just release a decent product, get some good deals, get a ton of cash, and not go out of business in a year, I'll be happy.
