Car Shopping is for the.......Humans

I'm finally doing some serious car shopping! After my failed Cash for Clunkers attempt where I decided on a Saturday to trade my car in for a new, tiny one and then they decided Saturday night to end the cash for clunkers deal a couple years ago...B and I have finally decided (well, with the Air Force and the 18 hours my car has to go to get to our new home) that it's time to get a new car for me.

Hopefully, my car will hold on until May/June-ish, and I'll be getting one then. But, I've been doing some serious research and I've narrowed it down to two vehicles that are highly similar that are both 2 wheel drive, automatic, 4-cylinder, small suvs. Only difference is about $3,000--however, one is a little bigger than the other so the difference makes sense. I'm going to try to test drive both in the next couple weeks.

The nominees are:

Toyota RAV4 (yes, this color)


Hyundai Tuscon (yes, this color)

Dude, Just Close the Closet

Mama’s Losin’ It

Writer's Workshop!

Although I'm rather late on it this time around. But I'm avoiding grading super long character diaries (in retrospect this was a horrible assignment to give--I have to spend wayyy too much time grading them).

This week's topic: One pet peeve that shouldn’t drive you crazy, but does.

My pet peeve?

Open Closets.

They drive me insane.

I don't know why. I hate when the closet is open. It bothers me a lot. I has doors for a reason. You opened it, why can't you close it?

Closets always feel messier than the rest of the room to me. But, when it's closed, no one notices and everything looks clean and shiny.

This applies to every room in every type of building. If there's a closet, it should be closed. End of story.

I mean...doesn't this just look like crap?

It would look so much nicer if it were closed.

Dude, just close the closet.
