Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Odd things, here and there.

A couple of days ago, while driving to work, I noticed five helicopters flying in a wide formation that paralleled I-15. It seemed odd, but I figure that either I was looking at the pursuit copters from a car chase, with one police machine and four television aircraft, or I was observing a flag officer flying from military bases northeast of LA towards those in the San Diego area, with an escort. Can anyone think of any other reasons?

It's been a tough couple of weeks for my car. I had a blowout on the freeway a few days back, and had to have two tires replaced; last night, out of the blue, with no warning, the battery ceased to hold a charge. Got a new one from our mechanic, while he sassed me about not leaving the car overnight at his place for repair. Hope that's all that happens to it for the time being.

forestcats has found the Portillo's that opened in Orange County. She was kind enough to buy me a Chicago beef sandwich, which I devoured last night. I'll have more to say about that subject in the future, when we actually get to the restaurant together.

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was rather boring, last night. It was part two; the wedding following last week's working up to an engagement. Yawn. Spectacular setting for the party, though, at the New York Public Library main building.
