Perfect for a summer day

With it being ~5 degrees Fahrenheit right now the thought of spending a warm summer day laying on the grass and listening to great music has a lot of appeal.

I can't wait!

Driving through Montana

Two men were driving through Montana when they got pulled over by a state trooper. The cop walked up and tapped on the window with his nightstick. The driver rolled down the window, and WHACK, the cop smacked him in the head with his nightstick.

'What the hell was that for?' the driver asked.

'You're in Montana son,' the trooper answered. 'When we pull you over in Montana, you better have your license ready, by the time we get to your car.'

'I'm sorry, officer,' the driver said, 'I'm not from around here.'

The trooper runs a check on the guy's license--he's clean, and gives the guy his license back.

The trooper then walks around to the passenger side and taps on the window.

The passenger rolls down the window, and WHACK, the trooper smacks him on the head with the nightstick.

'What'd you do that for?' the passenger demands.

'Just making your wish come true,' replied the trooper.

'Making WHAT wish come true?' the passenger asked.

'Because I know your type,' the trooper says, 'two miles down the road, you're gonna turn to your buddy and say, 'I wish that a**hole would've tried that CRAP with me!'

Lunar Eclispe

Took some pictures last night. Well I tried to take some pictures. It was kinda last minute and just a bit chilly (~3F).

Fast Cars

We headed off to the Chicago Auto Show today. Picked up Thing1 at school, dodged lots of potholes, and made it to McCormick place to wander the aisles and see what grabbed our attention. Thing1 graduates in just over 90 days and is thinking of a new car once he has gotten that first job so he had certain models he wanted to see. Me - I just like to look and dream a bit.

We found some race cars. One of Tony Stewart's new rides was there.

He managed a close second in the Bud Shootout tonight.

Kevin Harvick had a car at the Shell display.

Shell was nice enough to have a board so that fans could wish Kevin well.

If one goes straight down from the first O a little bit you might find something a little different...

I wonder where that came from...

Chevrolet had a Bumblebee Camaro on display. What a beautiful car. Thing1 wants one as one as long as it can transform.

And if I had 100K to spend... It would be on a Chevrolet ZR1 Corvette.

Friday, February 08, 2008 ?

I was on the CompUSA email list for advertised specials when the brick and mortar stores were still around. When they went away I stopped getting email from them. Today I got a email ad from that looked a lot like a ad - right down to the prices.

So I looked at the bottom of the ad:
    7795 W Flagler Street, Suite 35
    Miami, FL 33144

Dig out a deleted ad:

I guess they are one and the same now.
