Saturday Hodgepodge

Oh wow. I take a few days off of blogging (to do a bit of late spring cleaning) and the spam runs rampant. And, who wants to see an overwhelming sight of pink meat products?! 😛 So, back I am and taming the beasts.
Great news also arrived in my comments while I was away this week – a baseball update. As one could guess after this news, I’m now an Augusta Greenjackets fan. 😉
The art car parade also happened today. I was fortunate to catch a beauty (?!?) the day before while grabbing something to eat.

It’s some sort of red/blue scribbles on the car. To me, it’d be called “democratic chaos”, for the car’s a hodgepodge of red and blue states (political sides of congress) all intertwined into a great big mess. The mess sort of simulates real life, eh, from a certain point of view. Scary.
On the book front, I’ve finished yet another one (“I Love Everybody…”), but I’ll talk about books in a separate entry, as I’ve found a couple more book blog contests of which to talk as well.

Anyway, time to shut down this computer, so I can restart and jump into awaiting email. Until later. 🙂

It’s in the Cars…

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a quirky one at times. Want more proof? I admit it, folks….I listen to Click and Clack, aka the Car Talk guys (broadcasting from Hahvahd Square, Bahston, Mass.). They’ve also a cameo in the Disney/PIXAR movie Cars. Though they had an “off” show this past week, I found some funnies in their links section on their web site. One link in particular was the top 10 fictional (TV) cars. Seeing these cars sure brings back some memories of great (and usually cheesy) tv shows. For instance, #8 is the van from the A-Team. (yes, we’ve come full circle again, chickadees, Hannibal’s tv show…not the cannibal though *lol*)

Being the closet toy car collector I was, I found my model, too.
1983 GMC G-Series, “The A-Team”
a team van

I know it’s hard to see (darn-it-brightness factor 😛 ), but it’s a cool van, and a fast little bugger in a race. 😉

The General Lee (from the Dukes of Hazzard TV series) was another favorite, but I had to settle for a “look-a-like” model here, because I got the magazine (with yummy Bo and Luke posters in it!). Slight diversion: I had a college friend that worked on a project with John Schneider aka “Bo Duke” – lucky girl she was.
Anyway, I can’t fault the #1 choice from cars.com, namely Kitt from Knight Rider.  I loved the voice and the gadgetry.
One car not mentioned though…the DeLorean from “Back to the Future” – yeah, I know…I’m getting into the big screen pictures now. But, I had to segway like this because I’ve another model to show…found it trolling along my keyboard.

Look at that little thing go…and, it sparks, too, to simulate the acceleration up to “88 miles per hour”.
*room starts to spin looking at those little tires*
Oh my, I think that my vertigo’s coming back, so I’m cutting this entry short for now. No, mamas, I’ve not had too many margaritas, but I do think I’ve stared at this screen a wee bit too long. Speaking of Mama Drama, guess what people?! I was voted one of the best limericks – honorable mention. Actually, I think it’s because of the imagery in it – riding rodeo llamas. Read the rest here. Yay, me!

Until next time, folks. Keep on keeping on…
