The end of shooting and driving 8/20

my new ride
Well, it had to happen. I bought a new (to me) car to replace the Blazer that died last Christmas. It's a totally sweet ride, and the whole family loves it. And it's a stick. Which means I have to give up live blogging because shooting and driving and shifting is more than I should attempt on the mean streets of Entitlement. I may post occasionally if I'm not driving, or driving something else, but for now, it's hasta luego, amigos! We're going camping!

Sunset at UCLA 8/19

Texting while driving. And sufficiently nearsighted to have to hold it up high and squint at it. While texting. While driving.

Ran the light.

Kenter at Tuallitan 8/19

Bundy at San Vicente 8/19

Totally illegal turn into the market.

Bundy at Goshen 8/19

If my car looked like this I wouldn't be playing chicken with the crazy lady driving the rent-a-wreck. But she did, and I called her a bitch.

Rose at 6th 8/19

Didn't take turns at the queue at the stop sign. And you know what? After I snapped her photo I saw her vanity plate and realized I know her. But you know what else? No one is safe. You flout the law, you grace the blog.

The varlets have just dipped the front end into the varlet zone, and hustled to help everyone with their doors. And there it sits like a beached whale while everyone airkisses goodbye.

The driver of this brand-spankin new Lexus felt she could pull out in front of me. And she did.

Gretna Green at Sunset 8/11

This asshole pulled his fucking Escalade up on my left and then made a right turn. He probably voted to re-elect W too.

Bundy from Wilshire to Montana 8/10

Two tailgating motorcyclists blaring gangsta rap. We pulled over so now they're tailgating these people.
