Quickie 4.288: Visiting Plastic Fantastic

October 15, 2014

A while back, after returning from Colorado, I visited relatively local Dollfie collectors and friends, Plastic Fantastic (PF) and her husband, to catch up on life, the universe, and everything. PF wanted to see the mori outfits I’d bought and I wanted to see the 25 dolls she has again. Ok maybe I really just wanted to see Amber, the doll PF used to convince me I needed a Dollfie in my life.

Quickie 4.183: Waterski Show @ Clevelands House

July 2, 2014

This past Canada Day weekend family and myself went to Cleveland House in Minett, Ontario. The weather was iffy a lot of the time so I kept leaving my dSLR behind, and getting smartphone shots, which annoyed me to no end. Eventually though I pulled out the dSLR and the weather was great for the waterski show.

Quickie 4.153: Replacing My Forward O2 Sensor

June 2, 2014

As mentioned at the end of my previous quickie I had to replace the forward O2 sensor on the Saabaru so that I could pass emissions and renew my plate stickers. A friend of mine, the same friend from this post, MrCool did most of the work. Not because I couldn’t, but because I’m a pussy and didn’t want to touch the hot exhaust pipes.

Quickie 4.148: Replacing My Fork Seal

May 28, 2014

On Monday I visited a family friend who’s built a couple of custom motorcycles to learn how to replace a fork seal on my V-strom. Of course, my repair manual tells me how, and we used that for torque figures, but it’s always nice to have someone who knows what they’re doing for your first time doing anything.

Quickie 4.144: Camelopardalids Meteor Shower (was a bust)

May 24, 2014

Last night I ventured out in an attempt to capture some photos of the “epic” Camelopardalids Meteor Shower that was expected to appear. Long story short, what a waste of time. Could have been my latitude, could have been the light pollution, but I barely saw any meteors zip through the sky in the 1.5 hours I was out.

Quickie 4.140: Photos of Alice

May 21, 2014

Suddenly felt like taking a bunch of photos yesterday. The weather was actually sunny when I took them, but once I started to process them a thunderstorm had rolled in and I felt that concept suited the photos better. I hope you enjoy some fakery!
