    ~laughs~ highly inappropriate pic considering, as mentioned often, The Contessa is my elderly mum. She's referred to herself as such 'cus she thinks she's royalty (well above all others) and the inhabitants of the world have to submit to her personal preferences otherwise she has a 5 year old hissy fit and condemns you.

    Just checked both, you're correct.

    When I hit tassie 7 years ago I was just starting to create a healthier lifestyle. I introduced full blood workups with my Doc every 6 months to see how my essential elements were doing in my system, as I've been reading how a lot of illnesses mild and major can be caused by a simple lack or too much of a vitamin or enzyme etc. (girl I knew had severe back issues, fixed in a week with b12 shots)

    This is the foundation to build a healthier bod, make sure the bod is getting the right amount of nutrients, then work from there if one has a problem.

    All I've done in tassie is make sure I've got all the fundamental elements in optimal ranges, clean filtered water, non processed foods, zero processed sugar, herb teas and natural supplements to aid normal body detoxing and repair and maintenance functions, regular minimal exercise, sunlight, sort out all the soul issues as mental-emotional stress weakens immune system which can lead to physical dysfunction, and Doc says I'm way healthier than when I first arrived. I'm healthier now at 56 than when I was 40, and all I've done are the basics for optimal health and well being.

    Like a car runs much better when you daily make sure the oil and water is optimal, clean petrol, clean airfilter, regular addition of fuel injector cleaner, tyres and other parts are maintained at optimal states...slacken on the fundamentals and the car will begin to deteriorate and eventully things will break.

    Offer was accepted.

    How sexy is this card huh!
    HD 6870 One I'm getting is close to pristine cond.

    Other one I made an offer on, an old GT 8600, but it just looked 50s scifi and was going for a little too much, but alas, either seller took it off market due to being offended I offered a lower price, or someone came in the last minute and bought it.

    - also bought restock of L Carnitine 1kg
    - a pair of Sram chain links to compare against the KTMs I recently bought.
    - a tiny drill bit sharpening jig with grinding wheel that attaches to ya drill, as I've been researching on how to sharpen them without forking out tons for sharpeners that usually can only handle up to 13mm anyways.
    - a single 13mm spanner that'll remain in the ute for me new HD car battery terminals the mechs installed, so I can undo battery to reset ECU whenever the urge arises, which is often.
    - pair of solid engine mounts ( checking rear mount over the weekend when testing Cat)
    - LED torch clamp for bike so I can test current high powered torch, coupled with purchase of light meter for testing of said torch to understand what power bike lights I require. ('cus eBayers do like to lie about power ratings of led lighting)

    Essen is the infinitive of "eat" in German.

    If she's a dominatrix, she'd probably use fressen instead.

    Just ordered a mechanical keyboard, which I expect will instantly make me a better writer.

    I hope you got one with loud switches. The more pissed off the people around you, the more ambient emotion your writing will absorb. It's science!

    I bought some beer for the first time in forever.

    I studied Essen in my German classes. Some of my best cocks in that text book.

    New cell phone. Somehow it costs me three bucks less a month if I throw my perfectly good 18 month old phone into a landfill in Impoveristan and buy a slightly shinier new one.

    Whatever, we're all doomed anyway.

    Liiiiink!
    I prefer the feel of mechanical, though haven't had one for many moons. I usually grab 2nd handies from op shops that have some sort of decent feedback.

    I also used to run a typerwriter program, makes puta keyboard sound like an old school typewriter, sounds fully programmable...˜looks for it˜...
    https://home-typist.soft112.com/
    ...works in Wordpad\Notepad but not in Apache Office.

    I'll have to dust off Sun Office 'cus I'm sure I used to run it when using me WP many moons ago. Apache Office is Open office and all are built off Sun Office.

    Home Typist either doesn't like Apache or my newer MB.

    Found some more...researching, found more still, there's more than when I last looked a while back.

    Some more packs of socks. Also ordered a book.

    Two things we can't have enough of. Socks and books. Life is grand.

    - 2 x cheap as free T6 led torches as experiments for treadlee lighting so I can figure out what power of battery pack light system I'll buy for it.
    - Got a refund on the bike torch clamp 'cus the specs were wrong, and bought a better one, still cheap as free but for testing purposes only so no need to buy $ one.
    - 2 x Panasonic (protected circuitry) 3400 mAh 18650 batteries for my current T6 torch, as the no name brand battery it came with is crap.
    - a Nitecore D4 battery charger for said batteries and my current AAAs
    - A set of Deore M6000 shifters, as good shifters are the main reason for excellent gear changing.
    - Now I know me treadlee can handle a 42T cassette, I bought a Sunrace version as the Bolany, kinda cheap, was for testing purposes only and I'm sure the low quality is why I'm having 6-8th gear changing issues. 2 of the 3 cog screws had stripped threads, had to replace, and the plastic spacers are different sizes.
    - A pack of 4 good brand 12v led drop down lights for my home made desk and bed lights as I'm down to the last one of the previous batch.
    - 9...count them, 9 more vid cards. Can you imagine how many cards I'd buy if I had a steady stream of $.

    When the book becomes a world-wide success, first order of business is to buy a Maserati Granturismo...I'd rather this than a Nissan GT-R.
    [​IMG]
    Then go crazy go nuts with my crappy ute and turn it into a street legal race car, emphasis on handling, not power.
    Then go crazy go nuts with my vid card collecting.
    That's about all I'd do for material possessions.

    I so remember the excellent visuals of that movie, and how kickass the car was.
    I can still vividly recall a quick cutscene of a close up of the gas pedal, thus imagery of the car was an integral part of the movie.

    Matt black, my fav colour for a car, though in 'Murica there's a sub culture of painting cars to look like it's rusty. That would be my 2nd fav, kinda steampunk meets apocalyptic. I'd go for more classic red rust color.

    A push button lamp switch, a pair of cab corners for a 98 Chev., a box fan, glossy white spray paint, hot glue sticks, ice cream, four Tom Collins, a double double, and 20$ worth of gas.

    A bottle of Pernod Absinthe, two bottles of Captain Morgan (price hike is coming, so I saved 8 bucks on the pair of them), a bottle of tomato gloop (thick tomato juice for Bloody Marys) and a bottle of some higher-end Jim Beam (oxymoron I know, but my buddy likes Jim and just had a birthday, so I always buy him something from their product line that he normally wouldn't get for himself). About a hundred bucks all told.

    If anyone would like to buy me a gift, I would really like one of those pickup trucks with the train car wheels underneath that let you drive on the tracks. So long, rush hour traffic.
