Staples has your ink.  Staples is closed.  Best Buy probably has your ink.  Best Buy is definitely closed.  Target is open, but doesn’t have your ink. Target does sell printers that come with […]

Hail Mary

A million years ago, there was this cheerleader with huge knockers.  Since this was in high school, that is all I know about this girl from that time – “oh yeah, that girl with the rack.” Karma:  Testosterone is a helluva drug. Me: So I’ve learned Last night, she was in my dreams – her […]

Acid Flashback Thursday: 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
This is not your driver’s ed teacher’s Olds – oh wait, it is

  • Lorraine avenue in BFE Alaska where the car was parked, but not unoccupied.  (also the same for me and Michele –  parked, but not unoccupied, so to speak.)
  • two sets of fully active 18 year old hormones

If not that, can I get my car fixed before the year is out?

xxoo

The Best of Times

Despite $1.30 to 1.40 for a gallon of gas and astronomical insurance rates… Some of these cars are used solely for transportation to work or school.  Other common uses are for mobile parties and for activities prohibited by a recent Supreme Court decision.  One individual’s “beast,” as he called it, looked like a combination para-military […]
