Why am I still here?

Call me lazy (and it would be true), but I don’t have the energy to write a real post, so here’s one full of links to other things.  I did do something today, and I took lots of pictures, and frankly, it’s the thought of posting pictures that’s wearing me out, so that will have to wait.

So go visit Tricia (who’s engaged!) as she writes about not rushing through life, and Tokenblogger, who’s stuck on the night shift (I feel her pain – night watches were always the worst).

Oh, I haven’t mentioned my rental car this time, although maybe that’s because it’s hardly worth mentioning.  I’m driving a Pontiac G6 (power everything – yay!) and there are two things it does that bug me a little.

  1. When I slow down or come to a stop, the volume of the radio turns down.  On its own.  Like it’s possessed.  What if I didn’t want it to get quieter?  On the other hand, it gets louder when I go faster, and I don’t have a problem with that…
  2. When I shut off the engine, the doors unlock.  On their own.  ALL of them.  What if I’m in a bad neighborhood?  Maybe I’m worried that someone will jump in the car and force me to drive somewhere at gunpoint.  But really, what if that happened?  I really think I should be in charge of the locks.  On the other hand (there’s always another hand), I like that all the doors lock automatically when I put the car in gear.

Can’t I have it exactly the way I want it?


  1. 1. You are too sweet to link back to me!
    2. I HATE that cars these days unlock the doors when you turn off the engine…it’s so unsafe!
    3. The thought of posting pictures usually exhausts me as well…I don’t know why I do it so often.

    1. You’re welcome!
    2. That’s exactly how I feel about it.
    3. Because we like your pictures and you like to make us happy.

    Why would you turn off your engine in a bad neighborhood? Come to think of it, why are you even IN a bad neighborhood? I recommend you discontinue that practice immediately, regardless of auto-unlocking.
