This little bastard leads a life of leisure and just assumes hippiefied cat food will always be there, poop will always be scooped, and all he has to do in return is follow me around the house and look cute.
NACCHO has nothing to do with tortilla chips layered with tasty toppings.
When we first moved into our house, I had to sell my wife on the idea of a home office area. It’s not a dedicated room, but rather along the back wall in our basement/main tv watching room. But once she agreed to it she realized it was another thing for her to decorate (and for me to assemble, ugh).
Behold, the bowl of spaghetti I made the other day! But this is no mere spaghetti sauce from a jar. This is super simple roasted marinara sauce that will blow your mind. There are barely any ingredients. The main ingredient is time.
Some may say that my home screen is too busy, but this is, uh, actually toned down. I used to have busier seascape pics from the Google Wallpapers app but switched to the cityscapes instead which are still...bright. Sometimes. I even got rid of my folders!
$7.95 lunch special at Bob’s Shanghai 66 yo. (The chip is hiding to the left under the spoon.)
Because I saw this one on the road today and had no idea that it was already available.
Alllllmost got it though.
So here’s this non-turbo Forester with rally wheels and BFG KO2s. I’m sure the safari rack is used to carry many cases of vape juice, flat brimmed hats, and/or minimalist trail running shoes. Fun fact: based on my totally unscientific observations, New York plates are the most common non-local plates in the DC area.
Spotted at the fancy Walmart by my office on one of my regularly-occurring lunchtime Walmart excursions: this BMW adventure bike with matching sidecar. It has lights on it. I recognized them.
Street parking in DC can be a challenge. I often see cars in the city, and out in the burbs, driving around with Bumper Bullies still deployed. 99.9% of these cars have DC tags, even out in the burbs. Come on y’all, you’re supposed to put that shit back in the trunk when you’re done parking!
Last night I happened to notice this BMW i8 Roadster parked in front of one of my neighbors’ houses. It has New Jersey plates, so you’d think it’s just visiting or something, but I’ve actually met this neighbor and it might be his. Maybe. If I’m remembering the right house, that is.
Most of the people at my gym have at least halfway decent gym etiquette, but some of them are minor nuisances. I’m not sure who drives this blue Toyobaru, but the guy with the orange one is a major toolbag.
SO YOU’RE TELLING ME IF I BUY A LEXUS, I’LL BE ABLE TO GET A LOANER CAR IF I BRING IT IN FOR SERVICE AT YOUR FINE DEALERSHIP ESTABLISHMENT? THIS IS A CONCEPT I HAVE NEVER BEFORE ENCOUNTERED, TELL ME MORE!
BMW sent me a letter saying they were extending the warranty on the Footwell Module in my car, and that if I had repairs previously done on it, I may be eligible for reimbursement. I was like “dafuq is a footwell module?” but I did have the blower motor worked on and that’s in the footwell so maybe?
Here’s a nice piece of news from Motor Trend: the EPA just posted the fuel economy figures for the Veloster N, and it runs on regular unleaded fuel. This is fairly unheard of for modern turbocharged engines in performance trims of mainstream brand cars, and any luxury brands. Yay!
“Thanks for stopping our moon from crashing into our planet, Captain Picard!” (From the TNG season 3 episode Deja Q)
A little company named Livermorium was trying to make a keyboard Moto Mod attachment for the Moto Z line of phones. But, now they’ve given up. Darn. But fear not, physical keyboard lovers! Livermorium is now supposedly shifting gears to making a whole phone with a keyboard.
Yesterday I popped out of the office at lunch time to go get gas at the cheap-ish station a couple miles away. It’s on the main drag in the town of Vienna, VA. On my way back, I noticed something. What is this dippy little thing? A Meyers Motors NMG (No More Gas).
Round and round the cheap cell phone plan merry go round we go again! I’m going to switch to AT&T Prepaid! When I moved to DC, I was on T-Mobile, but that didn’t work for me. Then I switched to Verizon prepaid, which also didn’t work. AT&T redid their plans, and has a cool multi-line discount calculator.
