Food Lion is a not-particularly-fancy grocery store in the southeast and mid-Atlantic. Here in the DC area, it’s a half step below stuff like Giant and Safeway. There’s one in the same strip mall as my gym, it’s open til 11 pm, and it’s fine enough for late night post-workout shopping. I love their generic soda names.
My wife and I went to Baltimore yesterday to do something different, but since we didn’t want to go to the aquarium, and it was cold, we ended up getting brunch at this vegan joint sorta/kinda between DC and Baltimore, walking around the Inner Harbor, and drinking in a bar in Fells Point. Oh, and this car was there.
In both of the shower-equipped bathrooms in my house, we have those detachable shower heads on hoses. I love them, but the hose on the one in my master bathroom has developed a leak, and the spray pattern has never been that great so I’m replacing it. WELL LOOKIE WHAT WE HAVE HERE.
The owner even added a chrome J A G U A R tag frame just in case the chrome J A G U A R lettering on the trunk wasn’t enough. At least it’s not a dealer tag frame.
For when you absolutely, positively, need to smoke weed in your car and have it smell like papaya, piña colada, or banana afterwards, only Blunt Power® oil-based air freshener will do. Look for displays awkwardly perched above CBD gummies. “3 sprays will last for days!”
My wife and I have 3 cats, so we often order things like food and litter in bulk from Chewy.com, which is great, because as long as you spend $49 or more per order you get free FedEx shipping that often comes in 1 day. Except lately, our FedEx driver has been fucking with us.
Reading at the gym is anathema to me, but I know there are many Olds who like to sit back and relax with a book or magazine while they slowly plod along through their “cardio.” Maybe one of them donated this magazine, which didn’t even have a mailing label on it. I almost stole it.
Even though I now have to leave the house for work once a week, I’m still not driving much at all. The last time I filled up the tank in my 335xi, which if I drive it in totally city conditions is lucky to return 17 mpg, was January 22. I still have just over half a tank left.
I happened upon this Merkur Scorpio while I was out and about today. It was super clean all around, the guy driving it looked to be at least 85 years old, and that style of Maryland plate was phased out in 2004. Maybe the dude bought the thing new?
Yesterday as I drove past my local Hyundai dealer, I happened to see a Veloster N still in the shrink wrap pull out onto the main road for a quick drive. I didn’t get a picture, but it’s listed on their website, with a discount.
B&H Photo has a deal on the 13" Lenovo Ideapad 720s with basically all the features you could want out of a laptop. It’s not loaded, but it will suffice, and it’s only $600.
A few months ago I said I was going to switch from Verizon prepaid to AT&T prepaid because Verizon deprioritizes prepaid customers’ data in congested areas. Well, I never actually got around to switching, until this week, when I didn’t switch to AT&T but instead to Consumer Cellular. Yes, the thing for old people.
Points for creativity though?
My wife is in Wisconsin visiting with her mom who had a health scare over Christmas. She was supposed to fly back today, but they’re getting 7 to 10 inches of snow in Wisconsin right now. Southwest has a waiver to re-book flights at no cost, BUT....
Funny pic here for what’s a serious subject, but I had to go with something high school-related since no photos of the graffiti in question have been released.
The Hyundai Veloster N, especially with the Performance Package, ticks all my cheap performance car boxes. But I also kinda hate it, because this is what you see when you look into the back seat area of a 2019 Hyundai Veloster. It doesn’t have to be this way, Hyundai!
My gym is conveniently located in a strip mall that also has a Halal Guys and a Food Lion. Last night after the gym, I went to Food Lion for some groceries, and the dude in front of me in the one and only non-self-check checkout line was causing mad problems.
Let me tell you about me and phones. I care about a few basic things with them, mainly nice clean software and good picture quality. I don’t care about having a flagship phone, but until recently only flagship phones have offered excellent cameras. That’s still mostly the case, but here comes some good news!
My job working from home is now going to involve a not-entirely terrible commute once a week, for reasons. I’m trying to get over my crotchetyness about this, but I haven’t yet. I like being a home office hermit! I don’t want to leave the house! Blaaaaarrrgghhhh. 😭
