they operate with their own set of rules and are not courteous. they are smug and have a narcisistic superiority complex(character flaw). they will cut infront of you, not signal intentions like any civilized person might. they run red lights. this morning i was stopped at a no turn on red light and the bike nazi started screaming: "NO TURN ON RED, NO TURN ON RED" i said, 'HEY FCUKIN' IDIOT, DID YOU FCUKIN' SEE ME TURN?"
the lady that got hit by the garbage truck at conneticut and R was also talking on the phone while riding her bike through the busy intersection. was she asking for trouble or was so completly selfabsorbed that she failed to realize where she was?
what i love most about the new set of wheels is it's 1989 technology. i mean you can fix these machines by turning a screwdriver. it isn't until 1990 that Mercedes went Japanese. it's already a classic at 17. yesterday, we drove to Middleburg to check on an animal and next month Francesca and i will be taking the old girl up to the backwoods of Maine and New Brunswick, Canada with an extended stop over in northeast harbor.
because it's on the wrong side of the street, the starbucks across the street from the old george washington university hospital will close. so when i'm at the ritz carlton, i'll have to walk 2 blocks west around the corner from trader jo's for the next closest starbucks. curious to see what takes it place or will it become yet another medical office.
francesca, my older sister i told y'all about purchased a new toyotasalona convertible. white with sand top and sand leather interior. such good tastes she has.
anywho, i offered her 100 dollars for her old bucket of bolts and now it's here. heated front seats, split fold down rear seat and the 3rd seat as well all in blue leather. low mileage and immaculate condition. 4 matic AWD. V6 engine. liberace would approve. lovely color isn't it? for all you motor heads it a 300TE in the W124 series(the last of the mercedes easy to repair yourself machines.) i've already given here a title: True Blue. this is my 3rd and second gas car. i sold the old diesel to a collector when diesel was 2.10 a gallon. haha
continuing our july 4 celebration, here we have a chileanorchestra and chorus performing the triumphant march at the gates of thebes. often for an operatic performance live animals like elephants, horses parade around the stage while dancers perform the ballet. it's about 12 minutes of glorious music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Tv0b54HLhI&feature=related
the 33 RPM version of this jan peerce/arturo toscanini clip was played in our multi-ethnic house over, over and over again. and they wonder why i'm such an anti-communist. thanks to youtube, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORd9HtAe23o
what a bunch of creeps run that organization. on yesterday, the least and the lost picketed the DC Chamber of Commerce because they've done ZERO to assist citizens with an unlucky legal past to get a restart or second chance at a job. these bourgeoisie elites are really middle class pigs and there are elements of both in my lovely neighborhood.
last night i ran into the neighbor who's just completed gutting and condo converting an M street townhouse and carriage house. he's created 7 units of housing. he took me through the carriage house. the smallest is just incredible. for $299,000. you can buy and half assed and poorly designed unit in the carriage house which is a total of 660 sqft. the bathroom is almost as big as the combo living room/bed room. the kitchen is so small you can't open the cabinet door and the refrigerator at the same time. the dude's relative occupies one floor and ALL the other units are vacant. who in their right mind will buy a place like this? btw, the stairways are all 30 inches wide....a challenge for any movers.
no, i am not jealous. it amazes me what people will charge for crap and expect people to purchase it.
