Samsung Maxima





I promised a Hyundai Accord, but this one is just too much. Here is a nice shot of a Samsung Maxima, or Samsung G35. Honestly the car's build quality doesn't keep the standard of either name. They rattle, the transmission is as slushy as a slush box can get, they have very little power (considering we're running 100 Oct here), and they have very quirky interiors. The dash console will hit your knee no matter how you position the seat. As for the seat heaters... I use the passenger side to cook breakfast on the way to work. They do have this wonderful feature called the VAPS - Vehicle Air Purification System. Its a small computer fan mounted in the back deck. It pulls air through a standard paper filter (not even close to HEPA), and into the passenger compartment. As soon as you start the car, it will fill up with the fresh scent of whatever is in your trunk. Its a great warning system if you leave the garbage in the back of your car. Since I have a rental car, the trunk was already a little funky, so I stuck an air freshener on top of the fan to cover up the smell.

That warm and fuzzy feeling




Let me introduce Gizmo, my little lion dog.  He's the cutest little thing, and that's good for his benefit, or I would have made him into Bosintang by now. Gizmo has learned how to get onto the bed without my help.  He jumps into the chair next to my bed, climbs on the armrest, and then jumps to the bed.  I would move the chair, but its my tv watching chair, and my apartment isn't exactly spacious.  Anyways, for the past few weeks I've been battling this warm and fuzzy feeling on my face.  Maybe its my breath, but he likes to sleep next to, or even on, my face.  I must have bad breath, because it always seems to be his butt that has been planted on my cheek.  He's a dog, so he passes gas and doesn't think twice, or even once, about it.  On several occasions I've been woken up to soft fur on my face and the smell of bacteria bi-product.  So the next time someone mentions that warm and fuzzy feeling, think about being eye to eye with Gizmo's brown eye.
P.S. Sorry about the boot in the picture.
