She's done! - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...

She's done!
My annual inspection is finally finished. The paperwork is done, the plane's buttoned back up, and she's ready to fly. I'd have flown this morning, but there was a hurricane in my way.

The engine sounds really good. The mechanic said to fly it at 75% power for 30 minutes on the first flight, then come down and go over it for oil leaks, exhaust leaks, and so on.

I just have to wait for the weather to cooperate now.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

Great! So fly out here and give me a ride (in the plane, dammit, in the PLANE!).

Sure, if you'll take me sailing...

i don't suppose you can just put the thing on autopilot and join the Mile High Club, can you?

Nope, no autopilot. And I think joining the mile-high club in it would actually be more difficult then boinking in a Miata...

well, a long time ago, when i was a lot skinnier and a little more agile, my then-boyfriend and i figured out how to do it in a VW Beetle. (we normally did it on a blanket on the ground, but it was raining.) later we discovered that we'd reinvented Tantric sex.<br

I've figured out how to "do it" in my 'vette; it takes a willing mind and some yoga-like moves, but it CAN be done!

as long as you can sit in the passenger's seat, and there's room for her legs on either side of the seat (mind the parking brake!), she can sit on your lap facing you... and then you can start getting Tantric.

See, in the Miata, the way the windshield slopes back, there's not enough room to sit somebody on someone's lap in either seat. And between the gearshift and the parking brake....

Of course, I know it can be done, because I've seen pictures on the Internet. :)
