Moved into my new house...

Well I finally settled on my house. Only 4 miles from work. Thats down from a 22 mile one-way commute from my parents place.

I'm farther from the twisties though. But not really a big deal. I'm pretty fired up about the house. I love it. Moving sucks my azz though. Agggghhh. Never again.

Rode the bike into the station for the first time this season.

As soon as we get the house in order. Things are a mess right now. I'm thinking a couple weeks at the most.

Congrats Marko!

Moving does suck and it gets worse every time. Its amazing how fast you can collect stuff and always have to take it with you to the next home.

Thats the truth. I had a tiny room at my parents house. Who knew you could get so much junk in one room. Damn.

Just make a couple extra payments every year. You'll have it paid for in no time.

Thanks everybody. I love the house. Got a killer deal and a solid rate. Got the surround sound hooked up yesterday...now I just gotta get the plasma.

And unfortunately...I don't think the neighbors would be down w/ metal music blasting through the neighborhood. Might have to stick w/ cd's and Sirius (which is cranked in everyroom of the house)

Are you kidding? And let you jokers know where I live. No way.


Eventually...it took me until about 3 months ago to get my bike posted up here.
