Well, I did it.

I started another blog. I decided not to mess around with this one as it would be unrecognizable by the time I finished.

Anyway, if you're bothered to look, I'm proud to introduce Life In the Cold:

Posts here will continue to be non-existant.

WHOA! Who the hell are you?!

So, yeah. I'm pretty bored, to be honest, and thought I'd pop in and see if this thing even exists. Apparently it does. Then I even guessed my username and password.

My the way things have changed. Well, I still like cars too much. I'm 17 now, I've got a job, car and a license, I've become a lot more serious about my photography and mountain biking.

It also just occurred to me that there's a very slim chance anybody's going to see this. Meh.

That's all for now, folks.

Hey everybody! I've got some awsome news for ya! IT'S SNOWING! WOOOT!!

Should have 6-12 inches for tomorrow morning, this makes me very happy. The only problem is that this, of course, happens right before exam week....exactly when I don't need school cancelations or delays.

Here's some pictures from this morning at about 10:

After one pass with a shovel:

The deck....kinda:

Yay for snow!!!! I'll have more pictures of more snow later!

Sunday, January 07, 2007

Well....I'm actually here! Woot!

Holy hell there's soooo many things to talk about.....

I'll get a couple outta the way I guess.

Firstly....snow. WHERE THE HELL IS IT????? There is no snow here! Nothing! It's January, dammit!

Secondly, Autoblog car of the year......a 1987 Saab 900 Turbo woot for that.

I got yet another dog since my last post, soo:

Her name is Misty, and she's an American Eskimo.

I guess that's all for now....

Standing on my deck

One minute walk

End of the day.

The home of the stig. Not whole lot happening around here, but I am up for moderatorship on those EA forums I'm always talking about :)

In other news, Had tornado warnings here today. There was a severe thinderstorm (with rotation!) about 15 miles away with the core headed straight at me at 30 mph. As such I spent a couple hours in the basement with my 3 dogs and two cats, otherwise alone. It was interesting

Anyway, the storm amounted too some rain and a bit of thunfer, nothing near the 60 mph wind, nickel size hail, and tornadoes that were talked about....whew.

Blogger needs emoticons...I just realised that.

That's where Stig spent his weekend.

Not too bad, even though it was a work weekend. Went up Staturday and began scraping paint, then I was given the job of picking up sticks and throwing them in a fire, which is nice! Staurday afternoon I went too a snowmobile club meeting/cookout and a good time was had. Got back from that and went kayaking on the pond you see above, got all the way too the other side when a somebody fishing said that he saw lightning. After a top speed run in the kayak too get back we put them away and then it started pouring rain.
Sunday - Old home days. Snowmobile club had a booth. We sold, basicly, crap that nobody wanted. All proceeds went too the town fire department. We got rid of just about everything, everything that wasn't sold ent too the salvation army. Don't know the money total. It was perfect weather that day, which got me too spend a fiver on the 50/50 raffle, I lost. Oh well. On the upside, I got myself and Superman puzzle from 1966 that's in prestine condition for free, can you say Ebay?

Still not whole lot happenning in the life of a certain stig, but for the last week the weather has been absolutly awsome! The past three days have ben the hottest of the year, getting hotter each time. As such on friday morning 9 trees were cut down and hauled away by me and my parents, afternoon was spnt in the pool, saturday morning was spent working on the boat as the floor was rotted out, afternoon was spent in the pool only inturrupted by cutting down 2 more trees, sunday was, well, spent in the pool!! Something I could get used to!

I know this was old news, but, anybody watch/care about the world cup? First I was rooting for USA, not expecting much, then I found that I was right and wanted Brazil too win, then I just gave up on the whole deal. I'm glad it's over too be honest, now the five weeks filled with the lack of TopGear is finally over!

Thursday, June 29, 2006

I feel like I should update this here blog, as I haven't in quite a long time. Not much has been happening in the life of the stig.

Summer is here, and with it lots of heat and lots of boredom.

I've really got to do something....

Saturday, May 27, 2006

As promised...

Right. I said I'd get these pictures up and, with a bit of procrastination, I am!! The car show pictures then...

<---My first Skyine :)

<---Really nicely done Toyota Supra

<---Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder

<---Sbaru WRX STi with a full ChargeSpeed bodykit. Only other time I've seen this car was in the "10 hottest (car) bodies" section of an old Import Tuner.

That was a pain in the ass to format...

Very sorry about the long delay in posting. So much too post about though!! Number 1) one of our (my) favorite cars on SRC is getting replaced with another one. Take the Nissan Skyline R34 GTR seen here
in white. It was very very good, and it still is. Take that, change the look completely, take away all the know details. and you get this

Just look at it! It's called the Nissan Skyline R35 GTR (prototype), and the best news yet, it's coming to America!!! That's the exten of my knowlege on it.

Sunday, April 30, 2006

Well, it's been a damn good vacation. The first day (last friday) my parents left and they got back on Monday. Most of that time I spent at a friends house. Had a couple of relativly normal days, then I left at like noon on thursday and got back here at 'bout 3 this afternoon. In between there was a couple of days at my brothers and a really cool car show. I'll post some pics and such tomorrow, or the next day, but fer now I'm going too bed.

It's Been A While:
Sorry I've been neglecting the old blog. I've been somewhat involved (sort of) with the EA (Electronic Arts) forums, at least the Need For Speed Most Wanted. The good news ia that I actually beat it, twice. The first time I did it didn't auto-save. so I had too do it again.
In other news there's...nothing. I don't really have anything too say, but I need too say here goes...blah. Job done. Anyway, I'm posting from the town library...and I'll have too go very, very soon. Like now if not sooner. More sometime in the not too far off future.

IT Was Mr. Katt In The Livingroom With The Clock!
Well I'm back from being sick and a few things have happened. Number one, I passed the 200 hit mark, or so says my counter. I have made progress in Need For Speed Most Wanted, I was stuck at one point for a long time but have since overcome that obstical...thatnks people who gave me tips at

This morning I was awaken with a rather loud "clank". I went too the livingroom too find one of my cats standing in the ribble of a potted plant crime scene, complete with at weapon...the clock. I've got the pics above

The is gonna be a quick one. I found this the other day and have only now found time too post it. Anyway this is really really funny. It's called the Crush Calculator and what you do is put in you full name and the full name of your crushes and it'll tell you who your true love is. Do it by clicking here: . It'll be worth it.
Dreams: OK this is going too be a quick one. I had this very very odd dream last night that was kind of a cross between The Broker, by John Grisham and Half-leave 2 (game). So I was in prison for stealing 38 cents from the multi-billion dollar a year company that I worked for. So I was in prison when I suddenly woke up with somebody telling me too come on and get up. So I did. He loaded me into his car and we drove off too some grimy old, abandoned industrial park type thing where I was told too stick close too this guy (I don't remember his name). I went exploring and found my school not far away where there was this new swing that went really high. Somebody went over the bar. Now I was back at the industrial park where I went too sleep. Next day I awoke way out in the middle of a busy shipping lane. I swam back too the park, buy I had too go fast in order too dodge the incoming ships. I got back and watched the sun set, that's really the only thing that this place had goin' for it was it's sunsets, they're incredible. Again the next day I awoke in the middle of the bay, watching the incredible sunrise. It was all brightish shades of pink and purple, dotted with lots of small clouds. I swam back, almost getting hit by a huge barge and started crying, missing my wife and 3 kids. Then I woke up. That was really weird.

Tuesday, March 28, 2006

It's blog overhaul time!! I have officially started the makover of this page, yeah the one you're reading. The things that stay the same will be few, (probably) the next time you some here I'll have a new title, rethought profile, and a new description (done). I', not getting rid of the template, and my post topics shall remain the same. Updates as progress occurs.

Wednesday, March 22, 2006

It's about time!!! Yes we, the Americans, have finally built a good, no, awsome car!! The standard Ford GT is a pretty good car, but now there's a convertible version, called the GTX1. It's kind of like the Lamborghini Murcielago. The standard version is very good, but when a convertible got brought out it just blows your mind away (mine anyway). It just looks, better and it's more interesting. Sure performance is comprimised a bit but who cares?? You can't really maximise your 200+ mph drop-top supercar anywhere, can you? Anyway, I don't have many details about the car, but I do have pictures, and I want it. Unfortunatly there's only one, that makes it even harder too get, also rare. That's good for coolness. It's got the same 5.7 liter V8 pumping out 550 bhp. The sticker price here is $149, 000 (about £84,600) The intereior's a bit odd, but people'll be looking at hte outside anyway so it doesn't matter. There's a company that's going too start selling conversions so your GT can become a convertible. They aren't cheap though. I should point out that Foed is currently in survival mode (they lost something like $3 billion last year in porfits) and the GT is being dropped in September. Right, bed with stig.

Monday, March 20, 2006

Finally got my hands on The Sims 2 Nightlife. Best chunk of change I've spent in ohh about two weeks since I got my MP3 player. Surprised I didn't post about that....anyway It's really cool. Finallly cars, no more taxis, many more cool features, like downtown with reastraunts, bowling alleys, nightclubs, all kinds of cool stuff. I haven't had it for long but if I have another dry streak in the posting world, it might be helpful.
In other news, I got an MP3 player!! I don't care if I already said that. It's a 20 GB DELL, exactly what I wanted, and I love it!! Went snowmobiling Sunday, 92 miles, twas quite good once you got out of town and into the middle of nowhere. Even got a pic of me.
I know I've mentioned that I had too write a book for school, well I finally finished that. Well I'm out of things too say now...back in another week, hopefully sooner.
