In other, happier news… I may be getting a promotion and a pay raise!
Last Friday I had quite the adventure. I got up earlier in the morning so I could try to leave Chico while avoiding as much heat as I can. It was still pretty cool when I left and I almost made it to the city limits before my engine overheated again. I pulled off into a parking lot and popped the hood.
The hose between the radiator and the engine had a hole in it.
Lucky for me, a lady from the business I parked next to noticed I was having troubles. After I told her the issue she asked if I needed some duct tape. Such a Godsend this one. Once I taped the hole, that thing started drinking coolant like crazy. The coolant must have all burned off because I ended up putting over three gallons into the reservoir in the span of ten-twenty minutes.
After that it got me home like a dream… Well, a really hot dream. Just to be safe I opened the windows and blasted the heater. The next day I got the hose replaced and the oil changed. Problem solved.
Here I am in hundred degree Chico heat, I’m going to be leaving for home tomorrow morning, and my car overheats. I’m supposed to drive for five hours and I don’t know if it’ll get me to the nearest city.
I. Don’t. Need. This. Shit.
Okay guys. I feel the need to inform you that I may be on here less and less often. I’m going through kindof a strange period of time right now. Strange in a good way though. I’m looking for jobs, I’ll be visiting Chico in a matter of days, I’m hanging out with this girl I like, and the number of hours in a day isn’t increasing anytime soon. Honestly, you probably won’t notice too much changing. I never was a frequent poster. But I will be occasionally checking out what’s new with my mutuals and I have email notifications, so feel free to shoot me an ask.
My homebrew is finished and ready to drink. I tried it last night and in my opinion it’s a bit subpar… Of course my par is pretty high. If any of you local people want a bottle or two, hit me up. Apologies to all my out of the area tumblr friends who are interested. I have zero money to spend on shipping things. Maybe in the future when I’m better at this.
