185 and 185

i got my first spam comment! makes me feel like i've arrived. we'll see how annoying it gets, it's probably an isolated incident right? what i'll do about it, i don't know. i hate those word verification things. it takes me forever to post comments with those, either i never learned the alphabet or i'm going blind. those letters are impossible for me and then if you get it wrong you have to start on new letters. maybe i need new glasses.

still fat. it's been a crazy few days. the car is gone. i replaced it with a big stack of money. and soon the money will be gone too. but for a very good cause.

it was all very stressful and over in a flash. i can't believe it. i was in a daze yesterday. which is a good excuse for eating pizza and donuts and ice cream all in the same day. see why i didn't post yesterday, i was busy shoving wonderful fatty food down my throat. except i felt like shit and then i needed a nap. you can't eat that much junk and expect to feel good. super healthy meals planned for the rest of the week to recover.

so, not that i need another car...but i've been looking and thinking about cars the last few days. we've been talking about cars alot and the boyfriend mentioned something i never knew, the vw bug is a fat person car. apparently a larger lady wrote the car guys in the paper asking what would be a good car for someone larger and they suggested the bug. the doors are bigger than other cars and it's easier to maneuver in and out of. he's got a point. we're going to go test drive one and check it out. it'll be like a consumer guide for the larger of folks. long overdue.

that's funny I always associate the bug with hippies..back in the 70's we all drove them because they were cheap to run and easy to push when you ran out of gas..LOL...I never thought of it as a "FAT" persons car....I guess I'll have to take another look at them....
I too have problems with the word verifications but it has made a differance on my blog...I was getting way tooo many wierd comments that were trying to sell stuff... now I only get an occasional one...I think we would all understand if you decide to go that route.

You can't get a new bug!!!! jkjk They are such a horrible attempt at re-inventing a classic! However, they are a V-DUB...and well, we all know that those are pretty damn good vehicles! However, they take the highest gas, so it can get pretty pricey. But overall, I L.O.V.E. VW's!!!

I'm a proud owner of a '74 Beetle...Nick (that's his name) He was my first car....He decided to go into hypernation 2 winters ago. The coldest I can remember and his poor bones couldnt take it! He sits in my garage, anxiously awaiting me too show him some TLC, while fending off PB's (and his buddies) plea to turn him into a dune buggy..

D: Ha! i'd rather have an old one too. i don't really want to buy one, but i want to drive it around bangor and pretend. we're also going to mercedes dealership. it's a great way to spend an evening and it's free. and sometimes the car dealers give you pens and stuff.

god i need a life.

and SLEM: i keep picturing those contests to get as many people in a bug as possible. if that's not an advertisement for a flesh ready car i don't know one!

SLEM said...

Oh the memories you bring back to me...yep...that and telephone booths (they don't have those anymore either)...how many can fit in...and why was I always on the bottom????
ROTFLMAO....

sorry to hear you were always on the bottom. you've got to find your inner dominatrix.

most pf us fat asses in mississippi like pt cruisers. the doors open up very wide and the seat goes WAY BACK! on the other, i can barely squeeze behind the driver's seat of the honda and forget about a seatbelt. besides, in the honda, i am so wedged in i would never fly through the windshield if i had a car wreck anyway.
