Yesterday I told you I didn’t really know what day it was, and I wasn’t kidding. I’m not going to be able to write a real update today, I’m afraid. Sorry about that. My grandmother’s dementia didn’t kick-in until she was almost eighty… I think it’s starting a little early in my case.
I had a pretty good Question of the Day penciled in for this one. At least I think it’s good; sometimes it’s difficult to predict. I’d like to know: What’s the worst car you’ve ever owned? What was wrong with it? Why has it gone down in history as The Worst?
Mine, of course, was that rolling basket of turds known as the Chevy Blazer. Longtime readers lived through the nightmare with me. It was a total and complete hunk o’ junk. The repair costs were higher than the monthly payments, I think. The electrical system was jacked-up, from day one, and the engine gave me a lot of trouble too. And the thing was practically new when I bought it.
So, that’s my worst. What’s yours? And if you’ve never had a bad car (you fancy-pants bastard), just tell us about the worst car you’ve ever ridden in.
Also, I’ve watched the video at the other end of today’s Further Evidence link, roughly ten times. I find it to be hilarious, for some reason. I’d like to get your thoughts on it. Watch the fat guy in the blue and white striped shirt, he makes several appearances. UPDATE: I just found a longer version, with additional footage at the end, here.
And I’ll probably be back on Sunday. Have a great rest of the week, my friends!
