It’s not white… it’s pearl!

14 years of waiting is finally over. I bought a used Prius yesterday. I also bought Lauren a tablecloth. 13 years ago I was deciding between buying a $24,000 Prius and a $14,000 Civic. The Honda won and has served in good stead for well over a decade. We purchased it the weekend after 9/11 because otherwise the terrorists would have won.

I only have one, well, make that two regrets. The first is that I didn’t make it to 300,000 miles. How many times in your life are you going to have a chance to put all 300,000 miles on a vehicle? The second is that we just sunk a fair amount of money into the Honda. Oh well. Anyone want a 13 year old vehicle with 296,000 miles on it?

I’m not exactly sure what is going on in this picture.

My limited knowledge about emoticons. Am I even saying that right?

So, colon + right parenthesis = Semicolon + right parenthesis = ‘Less than’ sign + 3 = Are there more?

Nope.

In case you were wondering if you can dry out a watermelon rind, the answer is no. I mean, you can dedicate more electricity and time to it than I did, and maybe you won’t end up with a slightly rotten, damp rind in your oven because you forgot about it for a couple of […]

Here’s Ralph’s damaged nose after he ran into the door. Your standard Wally-in-a-bucket. And roaring for his freedom. Ralph no […]
