This is what I do when I’m not at work.

Things Are Getting A Bit Weird

Maybe I should stop taking pictures in Carrboro parking lots, but the availability of strange sights just increases each day.

I have no explanation for this because there are no HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes in our area. Maybe the driver just likes the company?


Three's A Charm

I love how everyone in “Crunchy Carrboro” either drives an AWD Subaru (25 MPG) or a Honda Element (23 MPG). Way to care about the environment, man! Why don’t you just drive a Hummer or a Mack truck while you’re at it??

I spotted the Element Trifecta in the Panzanella parking lot near Weaver Street.

God Bless America! And pass that barrel of oil!


Ironical

This morning on my rainy drive to work I noticed a white Volvo station wagon with a pink “Breast Cancer Awareness” ribbon on the back. This is not an unusual sight — especially in these parts — but what struck me as peculiar is that the driver’s window was cracked so that the smoke from their cigarette could waft out into the rain. The irony of this person’s actions contrasted with their efforts to raise cancer awareness had me marveling long into the early afternoon.

Please help fight cancer. Please stop smoking!

PS – Happy Valentine’s Day!

1-31-07 Never Forget

Well, it has only been a week (which by internet standards is about four years), but this image and the whole Aqua Teen Hunger Force terror ad campaign debacle is too hilarious. It is really a shame that ATHF and other Adult Swim shows don’t have greater viewership, otherwise this whole unfortunate scene could have been avoided. On the other hand, I am glad that our nation’s defenses are strong and alert enough to have put down this “terror cell in our midst” and make sure that it’s perpetrators do hard time. Let this be a warning to improv comics everywhere.
