Oh Hell

I have felt like shit the last few days. And didn’t even realize it until after I got in last night. Too much of everything the last few days. The snapper I had for lunch/dinner yesterday was just the icing on the cake.Too much and too rich. I guess I do not eat like this any more.

Back on the plan for now.



Nice ride out yesterday. Just makes me want to do more of it. *grins*

The Mini is fast and fun. Actually put the radar detector out on the way back. Lots of cops all through those little towns and stuff between here and there. Speed Traps!

Corners well. Sits fairly evenly, even when taking corners just a little too fast.

Read some complaints about the loudness of the engine and also folks taking issues with the ride of the MINI. Well Hell! Don’t you pay attention to adverts? Hellllllllo!! It is a Sports car. Jeebus. It is supposed to sound like that. The loud is part of the ‘experience’.

The suspension is sports tuned. It would feel a bit stiffer than some luxury sedan. So don’t press the ‘Sport’ button on the console. Stiffer suspension and better engine response? Who the fuck would want that?

The 1st question I am asked about TheRedOne is, “Is it fun to drive?” or “Is it fast?” The next question is invariabley, “Can I drive it?”

“Yes! Yeah it is! And nope!”


Kinda feel the same way about my eBike too.

Don't Go There...

Didn’t really get a lot done today. Kinda fried from yesterday and last week’s stuff in general. So attempting to recover from that escapism. I did some stuff. What needed. Etc. Rent. Electric. You know. Made sure to eat right. Picked up the mail. Dishes.

A good day all in all.


Literary Messes

I picked up a link from somewhere (Slate.com?) to a book called, ‘The School of Venus, or the ladies delight.’ Written in the 1600’s and it is quite the manual of (for?) raunchiness.

It has all those weird spellings because of printing practices of the time.

So ‘difcourfe’ and ‘Perfon’ and ‘Poftures’ have over time become ‘discourse’ and ‘person’ and ‘postures’. But I HAVE to read them as if with a lisp the first few times. I don’t know why. Just the way I’m built. That makes for some ‘Wait? What!?!’ moments. Don’t even get me started on ‘fufficient’ (!!) *grins* Or ‘Arfe!’ That ain’t no dog barkin’.

Still wading through the history of Texas text I picked up. I now remember the title, ‘Lone Star’. But not the author. And he will be one I want to remember. The Kindle says I have under two hours left. I’m going to try and finish it tonight.

And then banish it to the archive in the Amazon cloud. Off my device, damned Spot! This one really has been a task to get through.
