Arrived in the email this morning. Choked me all up. Sometimes it doesn’t suck to be human.
Parts: Brake cable and clutch cable – arrived and delivered to mechanic. Seat cover – arrived. Blinkers – still en route. Tires – a saga is developing. My mechanic’s supplier had them listed as in stock but called yesterday to tell him they are not. They were supposed to arrive last Wednesday. I am now… Continue reading Vitch Update for Tuesday
The Mars One project recently announced that they’d like to take applicants for a 2013 lottery selecting people to train and try out as civilian astronauts. The ultimate mission is a one-way trip to Mars, although a return option may eventually materialize. More about the plan at io9.
So I got my fuel log uploaded into fuel.ly – some odometer readings might have been flubbed because some of these MPG figures are not real. I did flag the missing entries due to the milk leaking onto the pages (or it could have been water – there have been a few incidents) so in… Continue reading Mickey’s Fuel Economy

The reflective strips I put on are now peeling apart, so I need to get more. The Yamaha logo emblems are blackened from heat. All the black parts are faded.

We had a lot of fun with this movie and will probably go back to see it again really soon. For $1.50 a ticket, this is not… Continue reading Review – Rock of Ages

The pair will be working at FEMA to help kids learn more about disasters and emergencies. Children and their parents can build their own FEMA Flat Stanley or Flat Stella and share… Continue reading Flat Stanley and Flat Stella at FEMA
The mechanic has come to pick up the Bicious Vitch. I asked a tough-looking motorcycle-savvy agent to hang around and help discourage any shenanigans that might be prompted because I am female and therefore assumed to be ignorant. First up on the list: tire replacement, fuel adjustment, front brake work. When the clutch cable comes… Continue reading Vitch is in the Shop
So it’s become a bit of a hassle to blog in LJ, and the way that LJ works with website embedding has changed again, so my LJ wasn’t displaying here properly anymore. It looks like it just makes more sense to just post here and crosspost to LJ and FB. Once again doing a blog… Continue reading Blogging Again
