My 2007 Mazda 3 has a little over 130k miles. It's a good thing I like it, because I'll probably be driving it for a while.

Cat's 2000 Buick LeSabre has over 250k miles. Earlier this year, she hit a deer and totaled it. I put in a new radiator and air conditioner condenser, pulled the broken bodywork, and bent some stuff straight. The headlight assembly on one side was destroyed, so I wired up a $7 halogen lamp from Harbor Freight in place of the headlight, and mounted a spare motorcycle turn signal.
It's ugly as sin, but that got it back on the road. Yesterday, we hit up a scrapyard and pulled a headlight assembly and the header panel. We'll be back with a truck/trailer for the hood, fender, and bumper cover.
She's going to want the colors to match; we'll see how that goes.

Well if I read this sentence correctly...

"We recently reviewed the evidence in your Social Security disability claim and found that your disability is continuing."

...then I'm not losing SSDI.

It felt like a hundred stones were lifted off my chest.

your disability is continuing

This is the weirdest phrasing. Is continuting to what, exist?

Social Security's definition of disabled means unable to work a full time job, not the standard definition. This means a fully paralyzed person would not be considered disabled by the SSA if he or she somehow held a 40 hour 9-5 M-F job.

Thus, a disability can "continue" or "cease" depending on whether or not things have changed.

Yep. Southern Michigan, if that counts for anything.



Over the weekend, I went out to work on my cousin's bike. We got it running, but it isn't quite right. It's been like three years since it was running, so we had my brother run laps around the yard to see if it would improve. He wiped out on gravel; scraped knee and gravel embedded in his hand.
The shift lever, foot peg, and handlebars were all bent, and the tank has a scrape on one side and a dent on the other. Oops.
With a bench vise, a hammer, and an anvil, I managed to mostly straighten out the shift lever and foot peg. Then we used a ratchet strap and a fence post to pull the handlebars out.

I kind of regret not taking "before" pictures on that one.

It sounds like you have greater concern about the bike than your cousin... :P.

Had an interview for an academic role at a top uni in the UK. I think it went okay - we will see though. Would be a massive step up from going from the bottom 50 to beyond top 5. Probably won't be able to browse reddit as much :D!

Didn't get the job - second best candidate. Onto the next one.

Sorry to hear that, but second best is still a pretty solid accomplishment.

Pretty excited today. Have a licensing exam on August 15 that I thought I'd missed the deadline for submitting documents for. Turns out my stuff did get there late, but early enough for them to register me anyway.

The deadline was like a month ago and my stuff didn't get there the day of so they sent me an email saying I couldn't write. Then today I got an email with my details to pay for the exam, apparently my stuff was a day late and they sent it anyway but never bothered to tell me.

I suggested making it a rat rod, but Cat wasn't having any of that.

My brother didn't come away with any damage I was qualified to fix. He jumped up immediately and insisted he was okay, so I had him sit down and chill out while adrenaline ran its course and checked in with him again a couple minutes later.
The bike? Those were problems I could address.

The scrum training was pretty cool. Was in a fancy building in downtown LA and our whole team was there for 2 days and out of the office.

 

Got to go out with everyone for happy hour and get to know everyone a bit better, definitely helped make me feel more comfortable as the new guy.

 

I get to take the the scrum master certification test for free too. I mean who knows may open up a management role down the line

I added mining...

gEgi1mG.gif

I currently no-op the pickaxe check so any weapon works. The progress roll is based on the weapon strength and your mining level (you can't miss). Currently it's using my magic level instead, lol, because the weapon handles what skill is bound to damage...

First level up, ever! Level 2 mining.

Going to my glorious homeland of Estonia for the weekend.

And all my plans went the way of the dodo yesterday, so pretty let down.

Oh well, gotta try to take the best of it.

Seriously though. I wonder if they were even aware he nearly killed Rihanna.


@Veiva you've made some serious progress lately!
