Random Mid-May Thoughts

I recently rediscovered the glory that is grape soda.

Happiness is a yellow Winnebago.

Loneliness and being alone are not the same thing.

You know things aren’t right when the angel on your shoulder is screaming for tequila.

100 words – drinking

The dog is staring at me. He knows I want to run screaming into the night. A block or so away is booze. The forbidden nectar. Forbidden to me because I need a drink so bad. The trick of my brand of alcoholism is that I’m only allowed to drink when I don’t need a drink. Wanting a drink is OK, but needing is verboten. The real trick then is to be honest with myself about what is want and what is need. Often a mighty struggle, but not tonight. Tonight I know there is no doubt. It is need.

Random Thoughts – Late April 2015

Avoid German bagpipers.

Click your heels together, say “Nina Hagen” three times and see what happens.

Is there a braille version of Guns & Ammo magazine?

That there is some darn fine dirt. Billy should be proud.

Auction Watch: 1958 Goggomobil TS 400 Racecar – Fort Lauderdale

The only thing I like better than silly little cars are silly little racecars. Though I love the idea of thrashing this cutie beauty around the track I can’t imagine against what you would race. A hopped-up Isetta?

The auction company estimates this to sell for $18,000 to $22,000. I find that to be a little high. I’m guessing about $15,000.

My new depression ritual; Corner Gas marathon

Why does the best writing advice come from fictional characters?

If you understand the joke about ferric chloride you aren’t allowed to call the jokester a geek.

Does anyone know a clown who isn’t really creepy?

Auction Watch – hopped up Hillman Imp an eBay

The only thing I like better than quirky little cars are heavily modified quirky little cars. What could be anti-cooler than one of the lowest cars on the automotive food chain with every bit of possible racyness squeezed out of it? Nothing I say, nothing.

While the current bid is well within my price range, the car still resides in its natural habitat of GB.

Auction Watch: Speed Racer’s Car – eBay

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=221684005031&alt=web

This car is a divorce in the making. Somewhere there is a spouse who does not yet know she will be screaming, “You spent forty thousand dollars on what!?”

On the other side of that argument will be a befuddled greying and/or balding man stating, “…but it’s the Mach 5…”

Back in reality, the car is based on a Corvette so it may actually be a driveable car. Not that that really matters.
