Glad to finally get most of that printer ink off my fingers. Call me officially burned by cheap knockoff ink cartridges. FYI: nothing works well, but abrasion works the best.
Saturday at 5:30 would be a great time to see a complete game from Alabama. I’m delighted to be 3-0, but I have dreams of a three-peat on hold at the moment. Oregon, LSU, or Georgia would beat us this weekend. Stanford would be a squeaker. Clemson would have a shot.
My Rocket City Mom review of Anaheim Chili appeared on Monday. I’ve already been twice this week. May go again tomorrow and finally try the half-smoke. Scott promises to look seriously at a Madison or Research Park area expansion “when this store stops scaring me every month,” so get yourself in there to one of Huntsville’s best independently-owned eateries. I’d love an Anaheim Chili that wasn’t an hour round-trip from my house.
I saw a black 2014 Mazda 6 in the metal earlier this week, and it’s the most gorgeous mass-market sedan of the past 30 years. It looks like it costs twice what it does. If I were in the market for a reasonably-priced family car, I’d go drive one of those first. Stylistically, the bar is definitely raised. Nissan? Toyota? Honda? Hyundai? Whatcha got?
(I still don’t like cars with a single bank of cylinders having two exhaust pipes, though. Form should follow function. Symmetry is always less important than that. Best manifestation of such? Check out the gun and front landing gear of an A-10.)
Enjoyed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.with the boys on Tuesday night. If I can convince them that we need to time-slip it 20 minutes with the DVR so we can avoid commercials, I might watch it regularly with them. Many of you know I maintain a carefully-cultivated avoidance of serial television, so this is significant.
Locals, you know where Lady Ann Lake is? Down Zierdt Road, between Edgewater and Sun Lake? Did you know there were once detailed plans for a major theme/amusement park there called Space City?
Three installments left in my marriage series. One of them is about sex. Stay tuned.
