Random Bits of Random-ocity - II

I've been collecting a whole lot of random bits of fluff and goo around on my hard drive, meaning to share them with you.

I did that a little while ago [LINK], and here we are with round two.

CAR WARS – Back in July, my car hit 50,000 miles as I was driving back from a cousin's wedding.  Big deal?  Well, I back on THIS POST from 2009-04-27, noted that I'd just hit 40,000 miles.  Yes, that's right, I put 10,000 miles on my car in a little over 2 years.

The Most Depressing Restaurant: EVER!

Certainly, this was a one-off to sell investors on the use for the space or some kind of crap, but still, the only tip you should give the staff here is "Run, Forrest!  RUN!"

Target-ing Hispanics:

If you don't want the Spanish speaking population down on the first floor, just say so.  (I've reported the typo in the lower right to them.  6 months later, it's still there.)

The Moaning Tree:

Random-10

Wonder if it's a myrtle?

Define "Well Duh":

Going In-DOG-nito:

Shedd-ing Light On The Situation:

Saw this cool light fixture while we were at the Shedd Aquarium a while back.

Note the date on the caricature.  I told you I was digging deep here.

10K in 2 years?! I wish I could do that. I put about twice that in a year.

You see a moaning tree, and I see a woman head in the dirt, legs in the air. Perhaps also moaning.

Love the light fixture at Shedd. Love that place.

Those shoes! How the--? Why would any company even MAKE those shoes?

I can easily beat you in the mileage contest. My car is almost 12.5 years old and I have 39,255 miles on it.

What do I win?

Um yeah..those sneakers? Really?

And no wonder the restaurant went bust.

10 K in 2 years!? Drive much?

Joshua - I use public transportation and the car is really only a weekend "grocery getter" with an occasional out of town trip.

And I'm glad I could hit you with a little "Taste of Chicago" so to speak.

Cora - Not only did someone make them, but someone approved them.

So. Cal. Gal - But how may miles are on your other "set of wheels" ;-) And you win a "No prize"

Candy - Imagine the actual cost rate for the time spent designing, approving, etc. for those shoes to hit the market. I'd like that coin!

And the restaurant setup was actually located in a department store that closed a while ago. Nothing has been done with the space yet.

LegalMist - I love the fact that I get to take public transportation to/from work every day, what can I say.
