So we once again rented a zipcar. It’s becoming a weekly thing, head to Trader Joe’s, the markets, etc. It seems I keep getting the Honda Insight Hybrid named Irina. One funny thing, you always have to adjust the seats, mirrors etc. I swear I always get Irina after someone of Lilliputian dimensions has had it. You get into the car and your knees are scrunched against the dashboard and the steering wheel is pretty much jammed into your testicles.
Here’s a tip for Zipcar. It would be fairly trivial to put power drivers seats in the cars, and interface them to the card reader. Hell, that and the mirrors could tie to the card ID.
Anyhow first we went out for breakfast at the Classic Cafe. It’s a nice little place with friendly staff and the depending upon what you order, the food is decent. And who did we bump into walking into the place, but my city councilman Bryan Principe. Apparently the project to move a public MESH network forward in the city’s 13th Ward is moving ahead. He’s going to give me a call this week about it.
And of course I would have to have a head cold starting Friday evening all through Saturday but it wasn’t enough to stop me. My usual allergy meds plus a couple Dayquil caps and I was good to go.
Did laundry in fact the last load is in the dryer now.
But I did find Red State online. I’m not going to jinx it by telling you WHERE I found it but suffice to say it was DVD quality. I approached it with some trepidation knowing that Kevin Smith is well known for movies like Clerks, Clerks II, Chasing Amy, Dogma and hell, even Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, as Smith plays Silent Bob.
What can I say, I had seen Quentin Tarrantino’s thumbs up for the movie so I had to watch. And in true form I won’t tell you about the ending. But it did a very good job of getting inside the true mind of folks like Westboro Baptist, and the other hate groups out there. If they could, they’d try what was shown in this movie. If you get a chance, go and see it. It’s fairly entertaining with a pretty good cast.
