This week, Hertz finally decided to pay me back for all of the rental cars with strange brown stains on the seats and give me a Mercedes GLK 350 rental. Let me tell you...it.is.nice. Almost a little too nice, you know? I sometimes hear in my head my dad telling me to not eat in the car and keep my hands off of the windows. But, in order to fit the part, I've started to wear a monocle and call everyone Governor.
If you're in the US and you've seen the news this morning, they caught the guy who they believe loaded down an SUV with "explosives" and parked it in Times Square. Cool. However, I can't help but notice that the news people keep telling their audience what he did wrong!! "Well, you see Suzie, he didn't even have the propane tank valves open...." "You're right Ken....and his fertilizer wasn't high quality enough and it didn't have any fuel oil...." REALLY? Do we need to be telling every disgruntled 17 year old step by step instructions on what NOT to do? I suppose that they could just find it on the Internet, but aren't most 17 year olds too busy looking at Internet porn anyway? Believe me, if 17 year old kids knew what Robin Meade looked like on CNN Headline news, they would watch!
Finally, guys are funny in the gym. The hotel that I am at this week has a pretty small gym that is a converted hotel room. Just enough room for 2 treadmills, an elliptical, and some free weights. There were three of us guys in there doing our guy stuff (scratching, farting, whatever guys do) when a lady walked in. Immediately the guy who was lounging around on the bench pretending to play with the free weights started cranking out rep after rep and the guy on the elliptical started going about double the speed that he was going before. Me? I'd like to think that nothing changed. But, she did come in right after 20 minutes - so maybe I was just able to find my groove with a bit more estrogen in the room.
