Out With The Older, In With The Newer

 

.

Goodbye 20 year old old van.
Hello 10 year old new van.

Hello power steering, airbags, CD player, automatic windows, automatic door locks, and much improved gas mileage.

I can’t wait to see what incredible improvements are in  the brand new vans!
I’ll find out in another 10 years, I guess.

… maybe they can fly!!!

.

note:the best things in life are free” … like my old van.
I hope the new one will be “the second best things in life” … even though
there’s only one of it … I’m hoping it’s at least twice as good!

what I’m listening to now #52: Crowded HouseWeather With You“.

Button

.

Did I press the button?
I think I pressed the button … I think.
If I didn’t press the button, that would be bad.
I wouldn’t like that. It would put me behind schedule.
The button was probably pressed, but I better make sure.
Please, please, please let me have pressed the button!!!

I sure hope I pressed the button.

Yes! I pressed the button.

I’m sure glad I have a rice cooker instead of cooking rice in a regular pot that I have to watch.

It’s a lot less stressful.

.

note: I like most buttons, but not red buttons … except for Red Buttons.

double note: when I iron I never press buttons … I navigate around them.

.

what I’m listening to now # 49: definitely not reason.

Thenar Space

.

A 3 year old student tried to swipe away the card I was holding, so he could see the next card, using an index finger smart phone swipe.

So I muted him with my remote control thumb move.

I think there is a generation gap

… between the index finger and thumb most likely.

.

note: remember when you had to use both thumb and index finger to change channels on the TV?
I do. … that’s why I sat so close to the TV screen. Not like now with computers and sophisticated technology. … oh! wait a minute!!!

double note: my title is totally logical: Google it.
(I’m not that smart; I just Googled it before most of you.)

triple note: calling the index finger a forefinger is confusing:
Which of my fourfingers do you mean?

quadruple note: a pointer finger makes me think my other fingers are pointless, somehow. … although, I still point with them.

.

what I’m listening to now #35: rain raining.

Me Naturally

.

Just like nature … I too abhor a vacuum.

.

note: this expression is so old … I’m sure it was “Nature abhors a broom” at one time.

double note: I didn’t draw the picture … I just did a bit of cut and paste which involved scissors and glue. … I did print the “ahhh!!!” though.

MegaMicroMacroMini

 

If a megaphone makes your voice louder,

shouldn’t a microphone make your voice quieter?

I could be wrong: I usually am.

.

note: this cordless mic used to have candy inside it … now it’s cordless and candyless … and no fun at all.

double note: the next microphone I buy will be like the one Derek Zoolander had in that movie which I forget the name of.

Cutting Edge Technology … That Isn’t Knives

  

 

The Driver’s Licence Office gave me a fluorescent armband when I renewed my licence yesterday.

It’s straight like a ruler, but when you whack it against your arm it coils around by itself magically.

I don’t know why it’s fluorescent though.

I guess so I can find it in the dark with a flashlight when I want to play with it.

 

note: I asked for one in black, but they didn’t have any of those.

.

Today #117

I hope the rest of today is cloaked in mystery … because it would kind of suck if it wasn’t there at all.

4WD

 

A Four Wheel Drive motorcycle would be cool.

 

note: I had a four wheel drive bicycle as a kid … or maybe those were training wheels.

double note: a two wheel drive unicycle would probably be good in the snow.

triple note: 4 Wheel Driveways are pretty standard.

.

Today #113

I’m going for the perfect day today … crap! I spilt my coffee!
correction: I’m planning for the perfect day tomorrow today.

The Whybrid

Here is a question for resident wind expert Prairie Flounder over at
 Sky Fishing :

Would a car with special high-tech pinwheels/whirly-gigs on it be able to create enough energy to run the car?

As soon as a car starts moving, all those things would be working non-stop.

It makes sense to me, but that’s not saying much.

 

note: maybe Bob Dylan was right, “The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

.

notes to myself #197

Growing up and getting older are two very different things.

Air In Bags

 

Airbags are like parachutes:
I don’t have either one in my van.

… I’m going to feel really foolish if I need one of them some day … for moment.

 

note: I guess the difference between an airbag and a parachute is about 4,000 metres.

double note: parachuting should be an Olympic sport … but I’m not sure in which one.

triple note:I’d like some air in a bag please. I’m going to do something dangerous.

quadruple note:no airbag please … I’m into saving the environment … unless you have a biodegradable one.

quintuple note: my van doesn’t have a key with the automatic lock/unlock button on it either … I press my key and make a noise anyway … just to fit in. Then I wait until other people aren’t looking and stick the key in the door.

sextuple note: sorry if I haven’t been around for a few days visiting blogs … things are going on … or ongoing … or bongoing … or something like that. I’m like ginger; I’m sure I’ll snap out of it.

.

notes to myself #111

Man! You are so unbelievably not very sarcastic at all!

Crematoriums

possibly a crematoria ... I guess I'll find out sooner or later ... or not at all.

 

I guess before man discovered fire,

…  cremations were not a thing of the passed.

 

note: there are so many different death rituals that have been practiced on this earth over the years, people don’t even agree on death ………….  rituals.

I guess death is disagreeable.

double note: on Planetross, when people die their hair just changes color.

 

notes to myself #21

You are the last born … but only by a few days.
