february twenty-fifth

Five for February 25th:

Riding in style. I’ll be hitting the streets in a sweet Kia rental minivan for the next few days while my car gets some bodywork done. Try not to let your jaw drop too far.

Lazy workmanship. Called an asphalt company to get a bid on my driveway and they replied four days later- via e-mail- that they “checked it out on Google Street view” and felt it would be better suited for concrete. Really? Can you really get that kind of assessment from a photo taken from a car that drove past my house three years ago?

Working out. Made it to the gym last night for the first time in a week. Ran a couple of pretty solid 9-minute miles and followed it up with a couple more via stationary bike. Also, the TVs were finally fixed, for the win.

Cool stuff. Psycho Stick, cappuccino machine at the collision center, playing bass, Snarf’s with Tom, Neil Blender still killing it.

Tuesday tuneage. Led Zeppelin, Embrace, Fang, Burning Brides, Phantogram, Band of Horses, Shame Club, Dead Milkmen.
