First day of orientation for my new job today. I go in at 9 am. I got a job working at walmart as an overnight stocker. $9.40 an hour at 10 pm to 7 AM four days a week. I'm pretty stoked to finally be working again.

Needs a new tranny and catalytic converter, about $5,000 in work and the car is worth, KBB, $1500, so her and her husband decided to just buy a new car. While I was there I decided I'd sit in the Dodge Challenger RT that they had sitting on the showroom floor...


I was very, very disappointed. The salesman said, when I sat down in it, that it was "fully loaded" and that there wasn't another option you could add to it. Sticker price was $42,000. I could not believe how cheap everything felt. I opened the storage area thing in the center console and felt like I was going to break it. I opened the sunglass/garage door opener holder in the roof, and the entire headliner moved. The shifter felt like plastic and everything else just felt so "cheap", can't think of any other way to say it. I was shocked, $42,000 and that is what you get. A buddy of mine works at the Honda dealership across the street from the Dodge dealership, so I stopped there when I left. He said they had just taken a Challenger SRT8 in on trade and that he had been excited to drive it since he liked the Challenger too. In my mind, I had already been thinking "cheap", first thing he said about the car was "cheap". I'm shocked, Challenger looks nice, but is no longer on my list of cars that I would buy.

Challenge still has the old interior, should of sat in the '11 charger. The new interior was designed by mercedes benz.

You don't buy a SRT8 challenger for the interior anyway, its whats under the hood.

Also if you think challenger interior was bad go look at the new camero, talk about cheap looking. Easily the worst interior i have ever seen, even the SS didn't get anything special.

Personally, if I'm not comfortable in the car, I could car less what is under the hood. I like to drive fast, but really, how often are you going to really get to use what is under the hood in the SRT8? Heck, my car doesn't have near the power as the SRT8, but I still, rarely every get to use what is there. I don't like the Camero at all so I wouldn't sit it in. I only sat in the Challenger because I liked it. I was looking for the Charger when I was there but they didn't have any in close proximity to the showroom. They had a couple but it was a long walk, it was late, and I had seen the lot attendants locking up all the cars, so I wasn't going to bother.

I need a new (or lightly used) marker (at a reasonable price) before I can ball again. I love the sport, but I never could afford to upgrade to new marker systems or anything, so I just stopped playing. When you are 17 with an Imagine and surrounded by 14 year olds with $900+ gats, you feel like quitting. So I did. Balled once last summer (with a Tippmann rental...) and tore up the field, but I simply can't squeeze paintball back into my budget.

Wish I could.

So what does Osama being dead mean for our country and terrorism at large? Personally, I don't think it is going to do much. I'm thrilled that he is dead and thought that he needed to be brought to justice, but I don't think his death will result in much of an end to terrorism.
