Sirius…ly

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:21 pm

I bought a Sirius Satellite radio with a car kit about a week or so ago and finally got around to activating it yesterday. I have to say that I’m not entirely pleased with it. I’ve only used it in the truck so far because I’d need to buy a home kit to use it there. The car kit transmits the satellite signal through an FM tranceiver to the stereo but there’s a lot of static, I assume it’s because of the wireless transmission but I’m not certain. I suppose it could be because of the satelite signal – I can’t seem to get a strong signal anywhere. I’ll give it a few more days but I’ll probably end up selling it on Ebay or something. Good thing I only activated it for a month.

I put gas in the pocket bike today because I was going to take it to work to finally try it out. It came with this mixing container to mix the oil and gas but it didn’t come with a funnel, so when filling the tank the gas got all over the place. Now my garage smells like a gas station. Needless to say I left the bike at home so the gas that spilled down the side would evaporate and not stink up my truck. Dammit! I really wanted to try it today. It’s been a while since I’ve made a fool out of myself in front of my co-workers. I wonder if I can pop a wheelie on that thing….

Nine more days until Christmas!!
