Car shopping, and getting in shape!

November 8, 2011, 11:55 PM

It’s a Video Journal! Enjoy:

As Video Journals go, this is a good one. I discuss how to be less long-winded, I talk about getting in shape, swimming, demonstrate the Free Colchian style of swimming (also known as “Lazuri”), achieving 122 beats per minute during tonight’s workout (only 28 shy of the doctor’s recommendation of 150 bpm), I discuss all the things I can do now that I’m in good shape again, and I discuss my problem of clothes that are now far too large for the body that they are on because I’m too cheap to buy new clothes, especially clothes that I know will be “transitional”.

And then there’s the car shopping. I hate car dealers. Let’s just be upfront about that. I tested a Kia Soul and a Toyota Yaris with Matthew on Sunday. And here they are:

The Kia Soul that I test drove

The Toyota Yaris that I test drove

So there you go, I suppose.

Web site: "Undercover car salesman tells us all the secrets"

Song: Here's a better demonstration of Free Colchian than I could give you standing up on land. Take a look...

Quote: And yes, I still think that dealer is a real son-of-a-b---- for that awful value he gave my Sable. He might as well just quote Smiling Jack and say, "It's off to the junkyard crusher with that bucket of bolts!" Well, hope he enjoyed that, because he just lost my business.
