A Fitting Start

Brought the car to the shop this morning to make sure it wasn't about to explode.

Turns out it was. Will be at the mechanic till around noon.

Now our local mechanic.. its a special place. If you go in, you should pretty much expect to receive a serious sassing. Or this morning I had a long "is he ignoring me? ... this is awkward" moment but he was just thinking or looking stuff up and suddenly had answers for all my questions. Usually its more of just friendly teasing or a sparring of wits though.

This "Worst Service Ever" review really cracks me up. I can certainly understand that customers shock and frustration, but once you get used to how things are its endearing. And we trust him, and I'd much rather get sassed than have a shady mechanic trying to pull things on me.

So yeah my car is there until noon. It wasn't really about to blow up, but they gave me a loaner pickup that I think IS about to blow up. Good thing I only needed to drive down the block and back.

Picture of the Day

Drone bees, the only males in the hive, are slightly bigger than workers and can be best distinguished by their huge googly eyes. It looks like they're wearing those god-aweful huge sunglasses girls like to wear, you know the ones that can make any girl look not-attractive? Anyway, there are three obvious drones in this picture. See if you can spot them!
