Post-Christmas Christmas Post

Post-Christmas Christmas Post

I enjoy Cracked. I especially like David Wong and John Cheese - even though Cheese was laid off at the beginning of December. Jason Pargin is one of the best essayists of my generation.

Anyway, here’s an article about the real meaning of Christmas - and how it’s meant that since before history. I share it on Facebook every year.

We've Survived Another Year! Make It Count.

Who has been a friend of mine since I helped his BFF move into his house about 9 years ago, just bought an NX200T F-Sport. In blue, just like this with the gunmetal “ultracrhome” wheels:

It’s beautiful. It has some of the best seats I’ve sat in. Quite an improvement from its plebian RAV4 roots.

Empathy is more important than obedience. Don’t be assholes to each other.

The crazy old men were starting to talk about Member Berries by 8:15 this morning.

So what do I do?

With these?

Kia Soul doesn't get track time, and we're in a temperate climate that doesn't need a separate set of snow tires. The all seasons on it now are just fine.

Not Gonna Lie.

I kind of miss this car. Despite the fact that in the six or so months we owned it, it cost about as much as the Kia - after the car payments.

and went on a hike two miles up and down a mountain. My body is reminding me that I’m 36 years old and 300 pounds but damn I feel good. Stopped on the way home and ate grilled tomato sammiches at a country store. Life is good.

Don’t speak in language. They speak in code.

They don’t refer to their favorite musicians by name, but initials.

Their cars are named by chassis code, not year/make/model.

They refer to the engines that power said automobiles by their manufacturing codes, not their “common” name.

Not car related, but here's a car

My wife was talking about something and she said the word motherfucker.

I worked at her and said, "you know babe, you say motherfucker almost as much is Samuel L Jackson does."

She replied, "aww,that's really sweet."

But it’s in nowhere near as nice condition. He bought itabout four years ago because he had never seen one. Bought it from the original owner who parked it in 1965 because it spun a bearing and scored the crank. Both Goliath-Borgward dealers on the east coast had closed by then and he couldn’t get parts to fix it. Now it’s awaiting an EA65/5speed swap. Apparently Subaru got their Boxer 4...

And because I’m a child, my wife took me out for ice cream. Of course we took the grumpy old lady, Zoe.

She’s 14 or so and has cataracts but she’s still a loyal, loving pup.

The other two dogs got ice cream once we got home. Because they’re spoiled, too.

That right there is my chest. It’s hard to see but the line going down there is where I scraped the corner of a renegade’s rear hatch down it, breaking the skin through a tank top, t shirt and sweater.
