Get Your Kicks on Route 66!

BGOBGAI! Quickie:

car2             I can still hear Nat King Cole singing “If you ever plan to motor west, travel my way, take the highway, that’s the best.” But for gosh sake, don’t mess up the lines dividing lanes on Route 66, or you could turn the entire driving population into a bunch of confused people driving bumper cars and wondering why one parks in a driveway and drives on a parkway.

Well that’s pretty much what happened in northern Virginia the other day. Nothing made me feel more like welcoming that big asteroid destined to doom this planet than to watch people drive down the Picasso-like lines like lemmings off a cliff. Sure, I could go on a mini-rant about lackluster contractors doing terrible work, but at this point I consider it a sociological experiment to determine where we, as a society, stand in terms of intelligence.

We are in trouble.

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
