Getting close to my 9's... IN REAL LIFE!!!
« on: November 23, 2014, 07:16:53 PM »
So, I've know my car was getting close for some time now.  However, this weekend I took a pretty long trip (about 320 miles each way) with the knowledge that, when I got back, I'd be VEERRRYY close, and boy was I!!



Let's get a close up of that to be sure!! :o :o :o



That's right, folks, only 33 miles to go!!  I'll probably do that by the end of the week just driving back and forth to work.  So, in the spirit if TopStar's silly poll when he was close to his 9,999th win, I've created a poll, too, because WHY THE HECK NOT!!  We need more silliness around here (I spent the weekend with my two VERY silly neices, so now I need to share what I've learned)! :P :P :P
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

The odometer resets to zero, the tires automatically rotate, the steering wheel turns into a Wiimote, the troll that's been hiding under the back seat comes out, and at 45mph the exhaust pipe starts playing "Here Comes The Rain Again" by the Eurythmics.

Other than that, you won't notice anything different...  ;)
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing... ;)

Eh, I usually poke him out with the Ice Scraper...

Ok, so tonight, I made it happen.  I knew I'd be a few miles short coming home, so I decided to drive around a little extra to make it happen.  And happen it did...

I think it might have been the cold, but it seems to have stopped at 99,999... :)


No wait, if finally turned over... back to ZERO?!? :o


Ok, that was photoshopped... poorly. :'(  It actually just flipped over to 100,000. :D



Wait... uh oh, this isn't good... crap.... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! :o :o :o



 ;D :P ??? ;D 8) :-* :o :P :-* ;D :D ??? ::) :P 8) :o ;D :-* :D ;) :P
