Blogpourri pouring forth

I'm guessing it's synchronicity, Gordon Sumner. It certainly occurs to anyone who lives in a city, or lives or drives near a trailer park. I'm talking abandoned furniture blogs. Um, Jennifer? Meet Peggy Archer.


Oh, really? My beer just tells me to get fat and that's why my beer and I have long since parted company.

"I'm not getting into it, you get into it."
"I'm not getting into it, you get into it."
"I know, let's get Mikey!"

Apparently, Gertrude Stein, there's no studio there, either.

There's an end table in my trunk. Where should I leave it?

Beth,

In the rich section of Buckhead, keep 'em guessing ; )

Boy knows Buckhead; girl's impressed. But, hell, girl's been impressed for a year.

And now I'm off to leave the table on Tuxedo.

Beth,

I know "Buckhead" from all the music stars living there and from a dance from some years ago called the "Buckhead Bounce."

I saw one of those Smart cars about a week ago, parked in front of the Japanese supermarket near us. I was surprised how roomy the interior looked.

Bubs,

I have no reservations for the car's size or its safety. If you've ever been inside a Fiat 500, you'd see that small cars can have room.

My reservations have to do with the fact that people can barely see my sub-compact car, so I know that car would be invisible in SF. Not to mention, some a**holes are going to tip them over, because they're small enough that they can.

god forbid you gain 5 pounds in that car. I've seen those rides around shlock angeles and all I can think is, oh, honey, have you seen the way they run red lights here?!

Katie-lah,

Those things are supposed to have five-star crash ratings, but if an SUV gets a full head of steam, right?

The kids and I were talking about little cars the other day and I told them this: If I ever get the chance to design a car, I'm going to call it the Deathtrap, because I think that would attract the kind of people that I want driving my car.

That said, I want one of those Smart cars. When I was in Munich, I saw one painted to look like photorealistic old battleship plating, and it was the coolest thing ever.

The word verification is "pvjgbqls", and that's not the weird thing. The weird thing is that I'm sure that I've had "pvjgbqls" as my word verification word before.

Spot,

"I'm going to call it the Deathtrap, because I think that would attract the kind of people that I want driving my car."

Are you distantly related to the designers of the Corvair and the Pinto?

"That said, I want one of those Smart cars. When I was in Munich, I saw one painted to look like photorealistic old battleship plating, and it was the coolest thing ever."

I would absolutely own one in Europe. They understand the concept of sharing the road with all sorts of vehicles of all sizes and they also understand the concept of faster traffic stays in the left lane/side and slower traffic to the right.

The word verifications oddly enough, are recurring.

As far as I know, I'm not. Then again, I didn't know that I was related to the inventor of the automatic dishwasher until just a few years ago...

It wouldn't have to actually be a deathtrap, as long as it said it was a deathtrap and looked like a deathtrap. I think the name would scare most people off, no matter what the crash rating results were, and the people who bought it anyway would be fun to hang out with.

Does the car come predented for that authentic look Deadspot? I'm in.

I love those Smart cars, they fit right on your keychain, so convenient.

Angel,

That's the thing about America, we love to waste. Any other country in the world with the exception of Switzerland and it wouldn't last thirty seconds.

Spot,

"I didn't know that I was related to the inventor of the automatic dishwasher until just a few years ago..."

Cool!

"and the people who bought it anyway would be fun to hang out with."

Dude, you'd be hip-deep in goths and nihilists.

Dale,

"I love those Smart cars, they fit right on your keychain, so convenient."

Yes! Not to mention that it doubles as one of those friction-motored cars and when your batteries die, you can get your friends together and they can rev/push you all the way to work.

Katie-lah,

I believe that's what the salesman in the article said, though salesman aren't the most reliable sources of information.
