Have you ever considered buying a dashcam? Like with other things, I scoffed and mocked them when they first came out, and now I’m intrigued. That’s the circle of life for me: 1) instantly dismiss 2) mock the people who did not also dismiss 3) begrudgingly become intrigued 4) buy one and tell everybody else they should buy one too. In any case, it’s still fairly early in the cycle, and it might not fully complete itself. It doesn’t always. But I’ve been looking at them on Amazon. I do a lot of driving and see some crazy shit out there. It might provide us with some Surf Report fun. I could start a YouTube channel where I post nothing but videos from my ludicrous commute.
A few months ago I was driving with the older hooligan, and a GIANT bear ran across the road in front of us. I mean, this thing was the Bea Arthur of bears. It passed right in front of my car, just haulin’ giant bear ass, and scrambled up the side of a steep hill and disappeared. It was one of those things where your brain can’t immediately process what it thinks it just saw. Ya know? I’d love to have that footage.
And rarely does a week go by when I don’t see some insane thing on Interstate 81. I think it might be fun. Possibly.
Have you considered buying one? Do you have one now? If so, did it ever pay dividends in some way? Either for insurance/police purposes or just for laughs? Tell us about it, won’t you? Also, home security cameras or nanny cams? Do you have any interesting tales to tell about those? I got nothing.
Yesterday I didn’t need a haircut, and today I do. While I slept the threshold was breached. Oh, I’m very plugged into the hair situation. It’s not easily explained, but an acceptable situation vs. an unacceptable one is exceedingly clear to me. I’m able to analyze the poofiness factor with the precision of a seismograph. So, on Saturday I’ll go over there and tell them to pour a cup of kerosene into the PoofExtractor, and get to work, goddammit.
Ten minutes ago Toney received a notification on her phone that American Airlines is having some sort of flash sale, and are offering round-trip tickets to Myrtle Beach for $215 each. And — get this! — they’re out of Scranton. Generally, we have to travel somewhere before we start traveling. But that price is for our local airport. Crazy! And the flight times are perfect… After Toney told me about it, she said, “What do you think?” And I answered, “You mean you haven’t bought them yet?!” So… they’ve now been purchased. Yes! That’ll change the entire trip, without the 11-hour ass-mashing ride back and forth. We’ll rent a car through the Costco app, and beach it up. Man, that’s great news. A weight lifted… I wasn’t looking forward to that drive.
Episode 68 of the world famous Jeff Kay Show is now live, for patrons. Here’s your link. And here’s your summary:
In this one I tell you about my lack o’ sleep problem, how I got greedy with the quiet time, a fantastic 1943 episode of Suspense I heard, our son’s trip to Florida and my advice to him, my upcoming day of doing interviews while under the influence of sleep deprivation, my perfect one-question job interview idea, and my hankerin’ for some home cooking before work. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for the support!
By the way, I’m toying with the idea of changing the name of the podcast. As usual, I didn’t think it through. I’m not 100% sure, but I am considering it. We’ll see how it goes. It would create logistical issues. And I’d need a new logo, as well as intro/extro music. I’ll keep you posted.
I have more but I need to go. I had a hell of a time uploading that podcast episode. It won’t work in Firefox, and I forgot and attempted it in Firefox. Then it errored out and I lost the summary, etc. Many of the bad words were uttered and shouted. So, I had to fire up Chrome and recreate it all. Then Patreon acted like somebody was attempting to hack my account… Maddening is the word that jumps to mind. But it’s up now. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to close out the category. Maybe next time?
Have a great weekend, boys and girls.
I’ll see you on Monday.
