Shhh. I'm pretending to be a teenager today - very self-involved, with useless information and memeage.
(Those of you who just laughed, shut up.)
(okay, okay, I'm totally self-involved all the time. I admit it.)
First useless tidbit of information:
I worked out that my car (a '97 Mazda Miata) gets 27.6 miles to the gallon, with me driving at 80mph to work four days a week. If I drove the speed limit, I could up it to 30, but I like my speed. This is a bit of a relief, since I was afraid the efficiency of the engine had gone down a bit, seeing as it's 11 years old, and all. I love my car.
In perusing possible replacements, I have two requirements: Proper speedy acceleration, and a convertible top. I need speed, and I can't imagine being without a convertible, since the ability to cruise down 95 on a warm spring day with the top down and the empty road ahead of me is why I love this country, dammit!
Yes, I know - bad for the environment. And I'm admitting this on Earth Day, too. But I need my vices, and for the moment, the ability to drive fast is one of them. I have no excuse. I'll compost, I'll recycle, I'll switch to all earth-friendly products, I'll even eat Sun Chips, but don't take my speed.
Frankly, I'm amazed. I even admitted at the end that I don't read the Bible (and I don't; didn't google anything, either). I have a crossword-trivia brain, though, and Bible nibblies are always fodder for crosswords (especially the Washington Post - go figure).
I guess all those years of church school counted for something after all. I'm still waiting for the day math will save my life. I keep a calculator handy, just in case.
You never know.
