Random Neuron Firings

  1. Hey, I said it before he did. Silly writers, copyin’ the Fink. So why isn’t the Times offering me a job? (Please, let me stew in my delusions for awhile, OK?)
  2. Last night, the Thriller and I watched Iron Man on pay-per-view (I don’t think that’s what they call it anymore, but it’s all I can think of at the moment). I must say, Robert Downey is dreamy, even though I’m certain they enhanced his cute-boy looks with contact lenses with a large, dark iris, giving him a softer, more innocent appearance. They do that a lot, I’ll bet, because as naturally beautiful as many actors are, not all are born with huge, shiny, crawl-in-and-drown Bambi eyes. I want me some of those.
  3. If I hear the word stimulus one more time, I am going to commit a felony. Then I’m going to ask to be bailed out.
  4. Yikes. Robin Williams just ordered one of these. Ross, have you researched this one yet?
  5. Why would you ever, ever, ever park your truck on the ice, especially with your kids in it?
  6. How would you feel if the police told you they couldn’t intervene until the person stalking you did something more serious? Nice.
  7. Regardless of your political affiliation, you should follow this series on Ted Kennedy.

And now, it is time to start my Sunday. I wish I weren’t feeling so lazy today…

Have I, absolutely, and I LOVE the Aptera, I sing its praises whenever I can. I profiled it a while back and blogged about it recently.

You think that’s a freakshow, check out the TWIKE.

The battery type, lithium-ion, ostensibly means the motor can start and operate in lower temps, but since they’re reluctant to confirm that battery pack, who knows. It does have AC/a heater, but yeah, I don’t see anything about all-weather tires … although they say it is “being developed to function in the same environmental conditions as your current vehicle.” Another way of saying ‘expect that model around 2014, if ever.’

As a schoolgirl my wife wrote a letter to Robert Downey trying to convince him he should be her prom date. I think she might have had better luck asking Charlie Sheen.
