That pizza dough conversation could have come straight out of my kitchen, from either myself or Mr. Tempest. We're both 12 year olds.
On the WRX thing...I remember now that a friend of mine had one for a several years. Seems to me that she had issues with it, but then again she isn't super good at preventative maintenance. Some of it was likely self-inflicted. The color was awesome though. Really nice blue.
My first world problem: what to do after we get rid of our old, cheap sofa. The living room's not very big, and I already think it feels crowded with the sofa, 3 chairs, and a coffee table. Our bikes are on a gravity storage rack on one wall. Honestly I'd like to get rid of the sofa and 2 of the 3 chairs (they're old and on their way out soon, too) and just get a love seat. The one advantage of our old sofa is that one section pulls out to make a guest bed. We might just be better off getting an airbed to set up in the office room on the few occasions we have overnight guests. There are some nice fold-up frames for those nowadays, so it wouldn't have to be the old "air mattress on the floor" thing. Wish I had a bigger living room.
