The Diet
The Wheels
The Pebble (Might as Well Be a Stone) Smartwatch
The Road Trip


Most of these are positive stuff.

The Diet

  • Goes well - as long as I mind my P's & Q's. But it takes some effort. Even though I had a net GAIN of about a pound, I knew what I was doing and did it anyway. All good.


The Wheels

  • - Car just flat out impresses me. It's really a blast to drive. Corners well. Can just tear up a straightaway. Was able to 'slingshot' into a few nice turns. Haven't had this much fun in a car since I had a Z28 with Wife 2.0.
  • It cruises at 80 or 90 MPH just as well as it does 65. Just with more emphasis. *louder* Really purring at 80 MPH too.
  • And on certain kinds of pavement the dang tires really sing. Was on I10 yesterday, there's so many different kinds of pavement between here and San Felipe (the town) it is ridiculous.
  • Nice drive though, once I got off the freeway. I never got back on.
  • Found a 'secret compartment' up front. *grins* Annnnnd… My parts are in, I just need to go pick them up. And then figure out how to get them on the car…


The Road Trip

  • Is going to happen. Haven't picked a destination yet, but I'm thinking in NW Texas territory and maybe a state over. Never been there. Haven't really picked a direction either.


The Pebble Smartwatch

  • A Kickstarter project I backed. Great idea but a very soft execution Farhad @ Slate about sums it up for me. Smart concept, not-so-smart watch
  • I'm very disappointed with this. I was going to say meh, but I really wanted this to work. Drains the battery on my phone. Could be my phone but I don't know. Notifications are very intermittent. Very. Could have been a helluva lot better.

There's nothing nicer than testing out your new car and finding out what its capabilities are. Mine is a slug I've decided. The new shockies have not made that much difference. Oh, she can go fast alright. But does make more noise at higher speeds. Hooray for your parts coming in!

That's great that you have decided on a road trip. I think it will do you a lot of good.

And what a disappointment about the watch :(

The watch is a disappointment. As yet.
