You all know how I feel about mattresses on the back of trucks or roofs of cars or any vehicle on any vehicle. Well, just think how I felt to find out that the slow down of Friday's nights commute home was caused by -- you guessed it -- a mattress.

A mattress all by itself right smack dab in the middle of lane 2 and lane 3.

No distressed people standing by the side of the road fretting about how in the world to get that mattress off the road.

Nobody called the CHP to get help.

Nope nobody.

Just all of us drivers trying to get home after a long day at work. Where are the people that lost that mattress?

I hope they are sleeping on the floor someplace and that it is not comfortable.

Just finished cleaning the fridge. I have one question - where does all that stuff under the produce drawer come from?

I mean really, where does it come from. It's not like my rotten cucumbers can leak out of the drawer. There is a one piece glass shelf across the drawers, so stuff can't slip thru a crack.

There was not stuff running down the sides of the thing, so where does it come from?

580 News

My friend Bead Chick asked me the other day why I have not blogging lately. I guess the only reason is that I have been lazy. There is still plenty of crap to rant about, I have just lost my focus. I will try to get it back, because I know my loyal 4 followers have missed me very much.

So, on this note I am sure you have missed my 580 news:

On my way home the other night traffic was pretty much bumper to bumper and two cars away from me (thankfully downwind) a window rolled down and a little boys head came out followed by projectile vomit.

Made me wonder two things

1. How sad, is this a regular thing for this kid?
2. How hard is it to get puke off your car?

Ring of Fire

Watching the coverage of the horror in Japan. I have been thinking about the Ring of Fire, you know that ring of active faults that rings the Pacific Ocean.

Think of it as a big clock, Chile has been having some big shakers. New Zealand - huge one just a few weeks ago. China major movement the last few weeks. Now Japan - fucking mother of earthquakes.

Now go back to my clock:

Chile about 5:00
New Zealand about 6:00
China about 9:00
Japan about 12:00
California about 3:00

I'm just saying time may be running out for those of us on the West Coast.

Of course my analogy requires that you know what a clock with hands looks like.
