      u didn't happen to see if they were finished with my car did you? Walter is going to be very rich by the time they finish with mine. OST, i really wont be broke, i just wasn't expecting that much of my student loan to go into one place, i still get a monthly paycheck for my internship with the athletic department.

      *Whew* -- good thing for you athletic internship, then! Actually, I haven't been able to spot your car in any of my visits out there. OTOH, you know how crowded it is out there, and I didn't get in much further than the door where they're restoring the red Beetle, so it could've been way down at the other end of the shop and I still wouldn't have been able to see it....

      Can't wait to see it when it's done, though -- you'll have the strongest X-flow Passat in town!

      you mean it's not the ONLY passat in town?

      That's the only consistent complaint about Walter -- he's so in-demand that he gets behind....

      He gave me a bunch of calendars, fridge magnets, etc. yesterday, so I can dole out a few of 'em at the Feb gtg if anyone's interested.

      Feb. 1 is probably okay by me; Valentine's weekend (2/14-15) is up in the air. Feb. 8 is also out. That aside, I ought to be open.

      Oh -- and no more majors for me; I graduated law school a year and a half ago. Back in the day, though, I doubled in philosophy and music theory/composition, and minored in German. (I didn't sleep much in college....)

      oh man... went to walters today... oh man. i'm moving in with walter. i've got dibs on that 23 window bus sitting up close to the front gates. thats the type of place i could have a field day in. i tell you, if i stay around here this summer, i'm gonna buy that bus... 23 windows, sliding ragtop, mmmmmm. on the downside, who knows whats wrong with it. but it would complete my collection... "She will be mine. Oh, yes. She will be mine."(name the movie?). anyhow, all i ended up getting was some 15 amp fuses.

      hey, lets make plans to go up to chitown if the weather permits, but also make alternative plans kick it around here (inside) if the roads are to bad.

      hey eric, thanks for doing the stereo install today... it works great. i washed it right after, and not only did i freeze, but so did the doors.

      a chi-town get together would be cool, we should make them come down here once if we go out there... we could find something to do here, right? so maybe we should stick with chicago .
