    Hope to meet all the Windy City folk. Or Milwaukee people. I don't mind a drive.

    I <3 N Illi. Actually I grew up in Lake Geneva, Wi (just over the border) but my family still lives up in Crystal Lake, Cary and McHenry. I was born in the north 'burbs. Ah, homesick? Never.

    Welcome to the club, and if you need any advice or a drinking buddy, my sister is still up there. She can put 'em away (if you like Coors light that is).

    All joking aside, we're glad to have you in the club. I can very much feel for you on having to get something "up and running". Currently I have a motorcycle in bits that just MIGHT cart me around town one day - until that happens, I'll just keep throwing money at it hoping for some miracle. Sigh.

    :)

    Scrappy,

    Someday, MrsBee will tell us what kind of motorcycle she's trying to get running. Until then, you'll probably be as baffled as the rest of us.

    BTW - welcome to the land of OCD, ADHD and SOTS (Sudden Onset Turrets Syndrome)

    We also thoroughly discourage inside jokes, because, you know, newcomers would never know what the hell we're talking about. :p

    Talking about OCD, did you see that posting about Hot Wheels. The Star Trek collection must be incredible..

    Just teasing......:)

    But seriously, OCD is the first step to schizophrenia. If you're hearing voices that others aren't...get help, unless it involves writing large checks to me.

    "Somebody" said to say that I have no idea what you're talking about - nope. Not at all. Another somebody said to say they predict that your chance of getting large checks from 'cca forum members is Lilliputian. Unless you want to come finish changing my wheel bearings... in which case you'll get a large check for about what somebody would be paid to do it - printed on a billboard-sized piece of posterboard. Now there's a large check for ya. :D

    Hmmm. I've noticed that we've taken to hi-jacking the new members threads and turning them into rants of our delusional existence on the forums. Perhaps we're scaring them away. I'm thinking that maybe in next years member satisfaction survey a question should be added "Do you feel that the online presence of certain forum members is overwhelming? Do you feel offended by the forum members? Do you feel the forum is a good tool to use in engaging in club fellowship?

    But really, welcome to the club - no matter who you are a Trekkie, a Matchbox car collector, a Twilight fan (please no), or A Deadhead, we welcome you with open arms. Next time I'm up in the N. Illi area I'll teach you the secret handshake, but in the meanwhile just practice your odd behaviors and you'll be just fine.

    Only the guy with that psychedelic love pad........he's strange. The others, like the OCD guy, are OK.

    Who actually fessed up to owning the psychedelic love pad anyways?

    I say O'Fest should be held THERE next year - it'll give a whole new meaning to the term "Hot Lap"

    I took Satch's lack of response as a tacit admission. :p

    O wow....I'm going to get along here just fine.

    Already OCD...kind of. My tools are thrown in the tool box and my OCD wants me to sort them then the Lazyness says.....do it tomorrow.

    ADHD I think I have. Start working on something on the car....look a bird.....lol

    PITA happens everyday on the 325i. Get one thing fixed 2 more things break. I just keep putting my money in my cars like you say and hope something happens.

    O yeah I'm not a drinker....I drink rarely. No light beer. I like Guinness, Mike's Hard Lemonade and WoodChuck. That's about it.

    Don't worry you wont scare me off by going a little off topic here.

    Hope to be able to meet some of you.

    Sorting tools is always better than doing the next item on the "Honey-do" list

    Scrappy, you know those voices that you hear? The ones that no one else hears? We're a bit like them..........

    Listen, Scrappy. Stay away from girlfriends - they're a waste of time and money. Invest that time and money into something more reliable and lovable, like, oh I don't know, a Toyota?

    Besides, Girlfriends tend to put even MORE voices in your head. If you're not crazy now, you'll be after you get one. Actually, "honey-do" lists are awesome, it keeps you busy and keep your girlfriend from bitching at you.
