Sat: Pot roast A++ would nom again. Watched "Jeremiah Johnson" (1972, Robert Redford) after dinner. This reminded me of "The Revenant" with its survival and unfulfillable vengeance themes. Miss prepped me mentally ahead of time, and by that I mean she simply said Sat that we should visit the animal shelter Sun, so that puzzle piece was in place. And I figured out another part of my apprehension - that I was never involved in the "bringing home a completely new pet" process before in my adult life, so I ... (...more)

Sausage scramble wraps were a hit. Gassed up at the Circle K at Ten-Ten and Holly Springs; then next door to Christian Brothers to nail state inspection and get the emergency brake tension checked out/fixed. Courtesy shuttle to work dropped off before 8:40. NC's tint law is more restrictive than FL's, so the Fiat's tint job will probably have to be stripped. I didn't want tinted windows in the first place; that's what sunglasses are for, and then you can take them off and drive at night with unrestric... (...more)

sausage scramble wrap for breakfast (2m30s in the nuker, could have stood 15 sec more) hit all the right notes. Cousins Maine Lobster was our Wednesday food truck. I love lobster and we're in peak lobster season and the presentation was flawless, but wooo kinda pricey for what you get. Even the bisque. I'll probably try the shrimp tacos next time around, after that the lobster grilled cheese and tots seems like a favorite of the food truck veterans here. Set Fri appt for Fiat state inspection and han... (...more)

I would probably be blissfully unaware of Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Outta My Head" if it wasn't for Kid606's remix ("Smack My Glitch Up"... evidently so closely derivative that Minogue's agency blocks it from Youtube). I think Youtube decided that since I like Kylie's song, I would also like Donna Summer's "I Feel Love", and this was how I learned Debbie Harry of Blondie covered "I Feel Love" in concert. If I knew more about the art of mashup, I might juxtapose Heart's "Barracuda" with Harvey Dange... (...more)
