The Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia Area

My next job interview is in downtown DC and I need a plan for getting around. Normally I would drive my own car and just find a parking garage near the building. But I’m going to fly up and I think I can get by without the hassle of renting and parking a car. The DC Metroliner has great, regular service all throughout the Northern Virginia/DC/Suburban Maryland area. So if I find a good map and book a hotel near a Metro line, I’ll skip getting a car this trip, that will save a butt load of money right there. I just hope the weather isn’t too shitty for those two days that I’ll be dealing with public transportation.

One of the areas that I would be interested in living is the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia area. It is a vital, dynamic, exciting place to live and work. It is close to all types of bodies of water, beautiful beaches and the Blue Ridge Mountains are fucking magnificent. There was a recent survey that states this area is the hottest area for young, affluent singles. So I decided to try a Maryland chat site and see if there was anyone interesting to talk to, and perhaps meet when I go for my job interview in Rockville, Maryland next week. Wish me luck, this could be just what I’ve been looking for.

Heavy Fucking Duty Jumper Cables

My neighbor is so frustrated with his daughter that I would laugh with him but he’s not laughing. Knowing that her car’s battery was giving her trouble, she came to his house yesterday on her way to work to borrow his jumper cables.  He has nice tools and a nice, well-kept garage and workshop. I am sure that the jumper cables he loaned her cost at least $60. They were the heavy gauge, heavy fucking duty cables – not those cheap ass ones you get at Wal Mart for $10. So he loans the jumper cables to her, in case she has trouble after work getting the car to start. But when she comes out to the car after work, she finds that the jumper cables have been stolen from her car and she had to call a tow truck to come help her.Not real clear on how she paid for the tow job.

Now, I want to know why the cables were not in the car trunk, out of sight. You just don’t leave something valuable just fucking lying out on the car seat or out in the open in that part of town. You are just asking for trouble if you do that. Plus, a reasonable person would lock the car doors. It’s not my problem, but I think the girl or her “Piece Of Shit” boyfriend took the jumper cables to a pawn shop and pawned them. It would be just the thing that a cock sucker like him would pull And now she is over there trying to get her daddy to buy a new car battery for her car today. Like I said, it would be funny as shit, but it really isn’t. I feel so bad for my neighbor – he’s in a lose-lose situation no matter what he does.

Commuter Hell

One thing this area is woefully lacking is high speed commuter trains, subway or monorail service to downtown. In fact, in the past of the lack of commuter services is why so many high profile companies are choosing to locate south of the city, in the Cool Springs area, instead of downtown. Cool Springs has a variety of restaurants and fast food options for the thousands of those suit and tie wearing cocksuckers who report to the high rise offices each day. There is plenty of free parking for all, and there are many back roads and surface roads to give people alternate ways to drive in to work each morning when if the Interstate gets jammed up.

Personally, I would like to see a monorail built from Franklin to the Airport, with a spur to the downtown and uptown districts and a spur to the East ending just past Lebanon. The monorails could be built in the middle or alongside most of the existing highways and would be a fast, easy as shit commute, a fast and easy way to access the airport for the tens of thousands of executives and corporate people who need to fly. Worst case, the least they could do is add a few more trains to the existing tracks and help with the highway congestion each morning. But that is not the real answer to our area’s transit issues. We can talk about that another time. I’ll have to a bit of research and see some numbers before saying anything.

Racing friends

A couple of my friends starting racing cars a few years ago, and I thought it would be something they would attempt, and fail, then move back to the couch to simply watch on tv. Well I was wrong this time, they have stuck at – constatly trying to improve the cars, and trying to get in on every race that they qualify for. I am not sure they have won more than maybe 2 races – but they still are going at it will all their heart.

It seems that the time spend fixing up the cars and fine tuning the engines is where the real satisfaction is for these guys,. It’s almost as if winning the race doesn’t matter – it’s simply getting to the race with a car that starts and runs is the most important victory. Personally I do not understand fixing up a car as much as possible only to rag it out and have it dinged up on a track – but if that’s what gives them something to stay off the couch and actually doing something – well all the power to them. I’d wish them luck – but they don’t’ need luck to win, just the drive to keep on fixing.

Same Old Shit

Can you believe that there are over 65 million males right now that are addicted to pornography, at least that is what I heard on the radio this morning on my way in to work. I have gotten very tired of listening to the same shit on all the music radio stations, so I decided to start listening to some or our local talk shows and it has been very interesting and entertaining, to say the least. What with the up and coming election coming up in just a few short months there is a ton of stories that are being aired that are full of scandals and lies.

I stumbled on a talk show in mid stream that really caught my attention and ended up listening to only to discover that it is a Christian radio station, which is something that I have never had any interest in listening to before, I can tell you that. Most of what I have had the chance to listen to there has been all about the election so I have a feeling that when all that bull shit is done and over with I’ll not be as interested in a lot of what they will be discussing, but I’ll still check out and see, what the fuck.
