    a) she was married or engaged (not that I care that much about it, but...)
    b) can't use customer's personal information for any other needs than the customer has explicitly specified and/or allowed -> not bloody likely to happen
    c) since they are at some level aware of the rules and since as customers they are allowed to approach me, they'll have a little harmless flirty-ish fun on my expence

    This leads to one extremely frustrated libraryninja :bang:

    Ah, on the insect front, the critters known as "periodic cicadas" have come out of their hiding places this month and there is now a constant background buzzing hum outside. They are huge, huge insects; one of them got into my car and I was much annoyed at chasing it out. I don't know if these are the 7 year or the 17 year ones; there was an article with a picture in the local rural weekly paper but I forget all the details.

    ION, I am so busy it is disgusting. Maybe I should have passed on the six week leave offer since getting ready for it is taking up so much time . . .

    Eh, whatever. You're all keeping up the RBP without me, so I know BoM is in good hands.

    There is an odd scent in the air. Can't work out where it is coming from (and yes, I have put deodorant on today!).

    About one third done with the much-needed bodywork repairs. It should be done by next week, and then comes the fun :rolleyes: part of bondo and sanding everything to level, then add a few coats of primer and finally paint it.

    I haven't decided which color yet. Black with red ice pearl crystals would be nice. Or maybe a dual-color paint scheme.

    Nothing really new in my life. Someone reccommended ballroom dancing lessons for a part of a plan to try to lose some weight.

    If I had transportation, money and a partner, it sounds like fun...

    Just remember...it's all in your head. :p

    In other news...this morning a radio station and a gas station teamed up, so 100 people could fill their tank for only $0.97 per gallon of gas! Saddly, by the time I heard about it, it was over. :bad: :rolling:

    @Decados: I didn't hear a thing. :p

    Hey, we only need another 30 servings of spam before we can start on a whole new RBP thread.

    Edit: 29 servings, Loreseeker sneaked in a post while I wasn't looking.

    @Loreseeker: Good luck with the exam!

    Thanks Montresor.

    Btw, I got a 10 on my Physiology exam... I'm happy enough to sing. :D

    @Montresor: You didn't? Damn. I'll try again.

    Testing, testing, 123*...



    *Has anyone worked out why people would say '123'? Surely numbers are not harder for a microphone to transmit than letters?

    Day off! That has got to be the best damned thing invented by humankind. OTOH, why each time I find a girl I like, she's always with someone else or she just messing with me, making me believe a relation is possible when it's obvious it isn't?

    And I've contributed towards opening garrio oratio CIII

    Well the Psychology exam was easy. I didn't know one questions, which was worth about 1 mark so I think I'm fine. :)

    In other news Random Babbling Post 102 has reached post 977. That is all (worth while commenting on. I don't want to rant ;))

    Well, it's not going to be a picnic since I have like 70% of the bodywork to redo (I discovered the floor needs to be redone too), but I don't mind, I just plug my MP3 on the stereo, make a good provision of caffeine, get to work and time just flies by.

    I've finally decided the color - it's gonna be a dual-tone paint job. One half is going to be black with red ice pearl crystals, the other half will be black with blue ice pearl crystals, and both halves are gonna be separated by tribal designs courtesy of my brother. This should be one sick truck.

    ...and you're COMPLAINING about that?!?

    Man, I want to kick Iku-Turso right now. "Oh no! Scantily clad girls come and talk to me! In droves! And then they flirt with me! And all they want is sex! Guh, woe is me!"
