Thoughts on Thursday

This my friends is the 2011 Chevy Camero - Convertible Edition.  This particular picture is from the Neiman Marcus Catalog.  They had 100 of them up for sale for $75,000.00 and they were all gone within THREE minutes.  If I had the money I would have grabbed one for SF.  She is a huge Camero fan and had one back in the day.  She has been lusting after this ever since she knew that they were back in production.  With the convertible edition on the market, rest assured that she will be watching the chat boards and the trade mags to see what everyone has to say about the new version.  I can say that this may be in our garage within the next two years.

This is the latest version of the Dodge Challenger.  The color is Furious Fuchsia.  I saw this yesterday while I was having the oil changed and the tires rotated on the Caliber.  I think it is one of the oddest colors I have seen in a while.  A salesman asked my opinion and I told him it was Butt Ass Ugly and it looked like something one would find in a Barbie catalog.  He acted like it was a personal affront to him.  I don't really give a rat's ass.  I would never pay the 46K for a car that color EVER!  Does that look like a color that a muscle car should be available in?  I think not.  Muscle cars should look tough and fuchsia does not scream "I am a muscle car" now does it?

Eraser wants me to share this story with everyone as well.  She has been a little out of sorts herself the last few days; however, the pumpkin seems to have worked magic on her and all is right with the world.  She wants me to measure her but I know that she is not anywhere near a record holder.  I will acquiesce and measure her just to avoid future issues.

Fall equals crock pot cooking to me and I have pulled out all my recipes and have been deciding what to make next.  The beef stew is amazing.  I'm thinking that I was to make a chicken dish next.  I'm thinking that I want Chicken and Dressing.  I'm also considering pork chops (thick cut) slow cooked in cream of mushroom soup and served over rice too.  I'm also thinking about a cake in a coffee mug as a way to make just enough to handle my sweet tooth.  I found this recipe and I may try it tonight.

I have been trying to get knitting finished up so that I will not get distracted in November for National Novel Writing Month.  I have ten more days to get as much done as possible.  I know I will get a lot done tomorrow.  I have an afternoon and the evening, while I watch the Rangers beat that team from NY.  As for Saturday, I'll be dropping off my socks at Upstairs Studio for the contest.  After that, I'll be parked in front of the TV watching college football.  Sunday, we'll have to see what games are on and what house work actually needs to be accomplished.

Okay, back to your regularly scheduled program....

I just DO NOT understand "muscle cars".... why on earth Detroit continues to put these overpowered, overworked, danger-packed gas guzzlers on the market is beyond me! Sure, they can go go 120 miles per hour, but they shouldn't!

If you get one, please drive it like a lady, not like an asshat the way most of their owners do!

Speaking of great cars ... I had to do some research on cars for my last novel, and I have officially fallen in love with the 1969 Camaro SS.
