Trivial things that please the ever living shit out of you

Recommended Posts

Really good garlic bread; went to this seafood joint in Beaufort, NC, last weekend, and the meal overall was nothing really special, but I didn't mind because the view was nice, and the bread before the meal was exceptional. It's amazing, in retrospect, how many culinary sins that can absolve.

Garlic bread is top 10 greatest invention on earth. Top 2 if it's really good

When my Uber gps places me slightly away from where I really am, I love being able to easily adjust my spot on the Uber map to fix it.

Hearing an owl hooting in the city

Oh, man, one of the nicest things about my move has been all the nature all over the place. College Station is one giant cement strip mall, only without the charm of a strip mall.

I took the family on a day trip this weekend, though, to a city park in Durham. "West Point on the Eno". City park, mind you, where on the other side of the street is a shopping center. You turn in, though, and the trees shield you from civilization. It's right across the street, but you don't see it. There's a functioning grist mill there, dates from 1778. Old house, nature trails, the works. Birds, snakes, raccoons, the whole nine yards. And when you exit the parking lot, you're back in "the city".

Sorta had that feeling in Zilker Park, back in the day, though now you can see the skyline from there, so it's not really "disappeared" in quite the same way, but if you imagine it surrounded by incredibly tall pines, that would be the feeling.

sounds kinda like the fire roads and trails through memorial park in houston down along buffalo bayou.  you're in the middle of the city but can't see the city.  no grist mill though.

The 20 or so Morning Doves that hang out in my backyard tree. Something oddly comforting about seeing them out there every morning

Mark their birdshit they leave in their wake on the trivial things that make you surly thread.

 

*Mourning

And they are probably collared doves, an invasive species that is displacing the native mourning doves.

I sneezed while taking a piss this morning, and not only did I not piss all over my pants, but I manage to keep it all in the bowl.  Thats some Buddhist monk shit right there.

Late Friday night when I pulled in the driveway all I could here was the wind in the trees.  No cars, AC units, dogs barking or people.  Just leaves/pine needles/palm fronds rustling in the wind. 

Music to my ears.

 

 

 

The mountains are calling and I must go.

Heading south yesterday getting on the HOV lane.  Two stupid fucks are hauling ass around me and the other 10-12 cars ahead that are already doing 65 in a 45.  They pass us on the left but arent seeing the HC motorcycle cops up ahead.  Both get pulled over.    Bet that put a damper on their morning.

The changing colors of the leaves at Fall. Love the gold, orange, purple, and red that's spread about with the remainder of the green leaves on all the trees in our area. 

And before one of you drops in to crap on my trivial thing that's pleasing with your "BUT YEAH, YOU NOW HAVE TO RAKE ALL THOSE LEAVES UP, MEH!", I don't give a shit about that at all. I'll put those in a pile so the kids can jump into them. I love the Fall. You can't take that away from me, you fucking killjoys.

When the “trivial things that please the crap out of you” and the “bidet meta” threads line up next to each other. Nice.

Those trees are probably invasive species that have displaced the native elms and other hardwoods. By letting the leaves just sit and not raking them, you are choking out the few remaining seeds of the natives, preventing them from germinating.

when they don't have any 'speedbumps' to click on as the video progresses.

I can just hit "play," read some Surly, and take the assessment at the end.  Most often with an adult beverage in hand.  This is training engagement at its best.

Not really relevant, but they don't call them "speedbumps" around here. They call them "speed humps" and I can't pass by any of the signs warning about them without giggling like a junior high girl.

I'll be honest, I'd never heard of "rumble strips" until I lived in NoCar. Saw the sign "Rumble Strips Ahead" and immediately thought it was some sort of rippled potato chip.

Sounds more like a topless roller derby joint, to be honest.

A cool toilet seat for when I take a crap at work.
If you spray Lysol on it then it will be cool. If you use a paper ass gasket it will be neutral.

Sounds like you use none of those options and hope for the best.

Made it through Heathrow security in a mere 30 seconds, but also without having to have my bag searched or get yelled at for not having liquids in the "right" bags, which hasn't happened the last twenty trips through there.

Flawless weekly trip to HEB (when its open).  Long, pre-Thankgiving Day list.  Arrive 9:30 on Sunday morning to plenty of open parking spots in my row.  Make it through the produce section without wanting to kill some dumbass.  No line at the deli counter.  Everything on the list was stocked and available.  Perfect choice of checkout lane - no line and the fucking A team on scanning and sacking.  I've been shopping at this HEB since it opened in 2004 and today was probably the best, all around trip ever.

I like to dip those in the creamy jalapeno. Volume matters.

Creamy jalapeño.  That’s a new one. Is that what they called it back in the day?

Aviation thoughts:

1.) During the day, when I see contrails I can just stare at them as the change from thin to widening.

2.) At night, on a cloudless night, when there's a plane way up in the sky, looking like a slow moving shooting star I wonder where it came from and where its going.
