It’s only $26k!!!
My < 1 year old (~10k miles on the clock, services up to date) Mazda 3 threw a dash full of warning lights at me this morning: TPS, TCS, AT, Check Engine, Smart/City Braking (can’t remember what the difference is between the two).
Full disclosure: I was not drunk while driving, I’m only drunk while posting.
Maybe it’s my middle aged eyes but putting a coat of wax on a white car sucks. I tried inside, outside under cloudy sky, outside under sun through thin high clouds. It didn’t seem to matter. I must have looked like Stanley Spadowski (you kids can google that) getting into all kinds of contorted positions looking for…
It’s a good thing the Mazda’s infotainment system doesn’t control the brakes, gas or steering. Backing out of the garage this morning could have looked something like this:

Traffic that was already significantly above the 65 posted limit. Judging by how fast it went past me, I’m guessing it was going 85-90. Around here t his…
It’s terrible. Truly terrible. I’m ashamed to admit the idea entered my mind... but it will not go away.
Pro-tip for newlyweds or folks getting into your first truly serious relationship... When there is a Steven Seagal marathon on one channel and a Lord ‘o the Rings marathon on another and your significant other wants you to do chores - arguing isn’t going to work. He/she will just end up pissed off all freaking day and…
At some point last night I had a dream that I was in Colorado at some resort for a New Year’s party... one of those dinner, alcohol, lodging, etc... packages. Anyhoo, I sit down for dinner and learn that the chef has prepared something special for that evening. Lobster taint.
Sitting at the coffee shop and Ace of Spades comes on. That song is permanently linked to this video in my mind. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
