Now you showed your true colors. Racist.

I hope so. I need to shed my WA winter weight and get beach ready. Maybe I should look to CTKH for inspiration

I really want to read some of your fiction.
Well thanks, I typically assume that few do, but I can't help myself, the fingers move across the keyboard of their own volition.

You'd likely get the fiction, despite your secret personal conservatism (which I suspect may actually be an atypical Japanese smokescreen for the proscribed ultra-base inner/true self) you seem to like some general weirdness. That's the response it typically receives from even the most hardy of souls.

Me: "Hey, so what'd you think?"

Invariably, save the occasional female who is too disgusted with the baring of the true male mind to comment or look me in the ye ever again:

"Well, it was... um... I liked... you see the thing is... I'd guess I need to ask you what you meant by... uhhh.... yeah, that was weird man."

I'm ok with that. Nothing in fiction is worse than being recognizably derivative, which accounts for about 90% of contemporary writing, which makes me sick.

Tell me a story I don't already know especially not one that's been seen on TV. I have been working on a short that involves a guy who hordes nothing but parts for a 2001 BMW e46 330i, to the point of absurdity/illness/insanity... but write what you know, you know? I was thinking I'd share that one with the group when it's done but it's sort of stalled on me.

Perhaps the vanos?

The most current version of the wheels you were interested in, but these are brand new in box. Released in the 90's, currently out of production. 18x8.5 ET40, and sub 20 pounds each.
