So, which of these is preferable: damp, steamy, humid, muggy, clammy, dank, wet, soggy, sweaty, sticky?

DAMNIT!!!

I decided to change fork oil in my bike so went and got a quart ... $17.....

Then comes the awful truth...

The bastards didn't put drain plugs on the forks. I check the manual -- you have to remove the forks, and turn them upside down.....

4 hours of work for a 10 minute job - to save a buck in manufacturing.......

Fucking bean counters..................

No shit hey? I just realized yesterday that my car can only be unlocked manually from the drivers side. There's no lock on the outside of the passenger door. Now that my key fob(?) is dead, if I want to put something in my passenger seat I have to unlock on the drivers side then unlock passenger side from in the car, then go around. Not cool.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

RE: Ranting corner
If you're taking 'em off anyway, might as well swap out the seals/bushings and install cartridge emulators (RaceTech makes the best CE's). Cost should be about $45 and $120, respectively, but it will revolutionize the way your bike handles.

It's less than two hours' work; just prop your bike up on blocks beneath the frame, pull the wheel, drop the forks through the triple trees, and get in there! Can be done with some towels, basic tools, and a table-vice, if you have one. Best to have a buddy to help, though, since those springs can be a pain in the ass to compress enough to get the fork caps back on, when all by yourself... not a strength thing, but a "need three hands" situation.

What it is is that my ex-husband and I have joint physical custody of our children. I have them a week, he has them a week, so on and so forth. Well, my ex is kind of a manipulative asshole and is controlling and such and a huge liar. My daughter is often stressed by his behavior and it shows itself as depression, which we have been getting help for her with via medication and counseling.

This is not enough for my mother. She thinks I need to talk more to the counselor about how this is all unhealthy for my daughter in the hopes that somehow this will gain my kids more time with me and less time with their asshole-ish father. She has even said that her and my dad would help out with lawyer fees.

It was stressful enough just getting joint physical custody of them. The way things were going I was afraid I would not even get that much. He had the kids in his pocket at that point and was telling me they wanted to be with him and not me and that I should just give up custody of them to him fully. It took a lot for me to fight as much as I did just to get half custody. I don't think I could deal with the stress of it again. I was physically ill over all that shit.

But my mom comes at me with this attitude that I don't care and implies that I enjoy my weeks off from parenting duties so much that maybe that's what is holding me back from fighting for more time with them. She said well, if the psychologist said it wasn't good for "L" (my daughter) to be around him (my ex-husband) so much, would you consider it (going back to court) for their sake?

Fuck you, bitch, if you think I don't care about my kids. Just because I don't live vicariously through them or guilt trip them every other fucking second doesn't mean I don't care. News flash, mother - you can be just as manipulative and emotionally abusive as my ex and yet he's SOOOOOOO awful for them to be around. Pot, meet the fucking kettle. Dodgy
