  1. Better than watering the dog and exercising the grass I suppose. How new's the doggo? Must have missed that post in my skimming.
  2. I actually haven't caught up with Steve for a while, but last I knew he'd bought a house and been going steady with a new lady for a while that he was pretty stoked with. Still had his XR6T, but it's mostly a garage queen these days as he'd bought a Honda Accord Euro as a daily. Last I saw his XR6T had cracked 380,000kms.
  3. That's probably getting a bit tooo far down the "food is fuel" path for my liking haha. Thanks, though 😁
  4. Man, I haven't thought about rainbow paddlepop's in YEARS. I remember getting them heaps as a kick coz they regularly had those "lick to win" promotions, where you could win prizes and free paddlepops and stuff. Good times.
  5. Ha, they do respond pretty well to intakes, zorst and piggy back tune apparently...but unfortunately didn't have the spare cash to not get a car loan for this one, so no mods at least until it's fully paid off I don't think. Plus it comes with a 7 year warranty, so I kinda wanna make the most of that.
  6. Yeah, I mean even in my test drive it certainly felt quick, but not crazy. Boost comes on real early and it just kinda keeps pulling. I reckon it's going to be a real nice daily and also be nice and fun to take for a punt through the twisties.
  7. Yeah, since I sold my Commonwhore like 6-7 years ago.. First time back in forced induction since my old GT and first time back in a turbo 6 since my FG XR6T. I'm very much looking forward to it.
  8. Nice. In other news, Stinger should arrive at the port tomorrow, so I should get it first week of Feb by the time it gets to the dealership and they do whatever they do with it, according to the dealer.
  9. Many many hours of Cyberpunk 2077, played some guitar and high pressure cleaned my driveway and paving. Otherwise absolutely fark all. Was great. What about yourself?
  10. Steamed veggies and a protein shake. No pics, coz was hungry and not overly inspired. Fuel, though...so there's that.
  11. Steve used to have a dog CALLED Turbo, statement checks out. Happy belated Chrissy and New Years and all that you mob. Back to work tomorrow, blergh.
  12. Thanks for such a detailed and informative reply, Dani - greatly appreciated. Depression is certainly a big contributing factor. I'm actually starting to work through my triggers and stuff with my pshychologist, but mainly it's around stress and lonliness I think. It's very much a binge eating addiction for me, which farks with my head even more, because while the addiction craves the hit I get from binging, it only really serves to make me feel even worse (mentally and physically). Carnt of a thing. I think I've always tended to do keto coz it's a quick win and makes me feel better in the short term, but you're right - it's not at all helping me solve my problems and overcome this chit long term. I'll take all the help I can get, so definitely keen on some sources/help with good BMR calculators and deficit goals etc. That'd be awesome, thanks!
  13. Massive effort, Fluff! Jealous of how amazing you must feel! I currently probably need to loose a similar amount of weight and am really struggling to pull my head of out my ass and actually do it. How'd you get your head in the right place to make the change (and stick to it)?
  14. It's a disease I can relate to well. Meanwhile, Steam sale is currently on...🥲
