Idiots in the rain. Swerving into the lane a few inches ahead of me then slamming on your brakes, while on a wet downhill slope, is a good way to get rear ended. Luckily that guy's Yaris brakes like shit and I managed to stop faster than him. ::)

TIL that European quart bottles do not have the same threaded opening as ours. Of course learned that after draining my transmission fluid and trying to thread my bottle pump onto the new fluid bottle.

Managed to get the new tranny fluid in but it took 30 minutes instead of 5.

I'm both on-call and dog sitting. Final Fantasy, Netflix, and reasonable amounts of beers. Not terribly exciting.

Just watched Baby Driver, even forked up the extra cash to get a DBOX seat. It was pretty damn good.

One thing that is just sad now though...all the closeup-of-key-turning-to-start-cars action is silly when everything is push button start  :P

Used rexies keep their value like you said, which put any newer ones out of my budget, and insurance was fairly higher compared to the ST. Plus dong a timing belt change on a DOHC boxer looks like torture.

I thought hard about an AccessPort, but since it's my daily for mostly highway I wasn't really wanting to push it. Coming from an NA D16Y8 I'm already playing with more power than I can complain about. Exhaust replacement is purely to give it some growl when I punch it since the OEM one is super quiet.

Exhaust most likely. Sold off the Acura and think I'll 50/50 the cash into early car paymentand exhaust.

I've replaced the intake filter already with a K&N one so I could hear more whooshy noises  :D Probably gonna grab a ram air funnel for it as well since the stock snorkel is kinda shitty.

Grabber blue is pretty nice I must say; if I had the cash for an RS I'd probably do that.

Here she is, 2013 Focus ST in Race Red. Not in perfect shape, but I'm okay dealing with paint scrapes in places that I would probably scrape myself. Somehow I haven't been pulled over yet  :o I feel a bit dirty not sticking to the imports....

Maybe you could start a partnership with Wild rose brewery to ship that beer to customers across Canada, why keep it just in the west?

Wild Rose wants to start supplying the country, but they have found huge barriers getting outside of the west.

You and I both know that is not happening  :P

(And the RS doesn't come in red)

I still need to finish it, but my PC has been in a box for a month. Never tried multiplayer though as I..uh...can't ::)

Yep, K70 would be my suggestion as well. Being able to clean the keyboard easily is a huge bonus in my books.

Inspecting vehicles that are driven by incompetent people sure gets annoying quick. $1600 repair on a bumper in January...which is damaged again. I wouldn't be as annoyed if they told me they fucked up rather than try to hide it.  :(

Not a buy, but just got this little guy.

Holy chubby face. Unless the pic is deceiving me.

And for my buy:
