Why Akira Is So Awesome
I’ve always liked Akira. But a recent viewing of the movie blew my mind.
Hit the link to read what knocked my socks off.
but today has been quite something.
I’ve been almost 2 weeks without a car. And while I’m getting around okay, the hunt is frustrating.
I went through my bank and they’re VERY particular about what I can get:
Living in a deer infested, snow accident prone area…..the place is lousy with salvage titled good deals.
It’s also thick with obscenely high mileage cars that are just a few years old (seriously….I’m seeing two (2) year old cars with over 150k).
Then I came home and lost my mind on the youngest kid. She has advanced acute senior-itous and stage-4 entitlement.
Today I informed her she better tighten up or we were moving to Level Red GTFO.
I think the neighbors may have heard me.

If you find out a guy you were ‘dating’ over 10 years ago, and who has had a serious relationship since then, still has a picture of ‘the girls’…….is that a compliment? Or creepy?
I’m asking for a friend.
Earlier this year, I found a pretty neat hack for windows that could use an efficiency boost.
Bubble wrap. Apparently if you place it on the outer layer of glass (bubbles facing outside), it can boost your window efficiency by at least R-1
So today, Amazon delivered a roll that was almost taller than ME.
I stood on the ladder outside and sealed the window edges with this amazing weather tape by Frost King. It’s super thick, clear and stays flexible but doesn’t wear out like duct tape.
Now I just have to finish inserting 1/2” bubble wrap between 2 sheets of glass, of every fucking window in the house.
(luckily only 14…….but 6 are WAY big)
