The beautiful thing about The Brother In Law is that he drools over cars WITH me. We can prattle on all day about paddle shifting, tiptronic shifting and manuel shifting. I can gloat about the supiority of the import and the rapidly diminishing inferiority of the domestic. I can blather about front versus real wheel drive.

In short--my closet motor head can come out.

My sisters are very patient when I get excited about cars, but after two seconds, their eyes glaze over and they begin visibly twitching. To say they simply put up with it is a understatement. However, The Brother In Law not only enthusiastically joins in, debating, comparing and commenting, but he can quickly put me in my place.

I probably only enjoy this so very much because I never had older brothers with which to do this, so I'm sure your a little baffled as to my great delight. To sum it up: he is a great sport. Even if he does enjoy driving and staring at trees for hours on end. I won't hold it against him.

    Jared-- Looks like the Dodge Charger SHOULD have. Whose idea was it to take a two door car and remake it as a four? Whoever it was, should be shot.

    Joy-- Thankfully, the new one looks NOTHING like the old.

    Pukey-- Even though Jared used to drive a old Camero (gag) we have to sort of give him half points for taste since he is now related to us.

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.

I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
