Did Chancer deliver the trophy yet?
Should have never trusted a man that doesn't drink yet still builds a kart from a beer box.

I thought we decided it was too @#%@% heavy to ship around the country? Maybe we should get someone with some photoshop skills involved ....

Ok, I might have missed that.

EZ^2 is really good at 3D- Photoshop.
He charges too much though.

But do you resent the resemblance?
Apparently I resemble an exclamation-mark!
One of my managers told me I look like a green bean.
Said my torso is as long as my legs.

I'm not even sure I know what that means. I'm not even that tall.- Like 5'11" in shoes. Then we got into a discussion about center of gravity and top-heaviness.

I told her I was going to knock her over. LOL

She's knock-overable? My imagination is getting the best of me.

it didn't cost me a lot to send it to Chancer. I don't remember how much it was, but i didn't think it was bad.
