Thought: Art should hit everyone and hurt no one.

My goals for this week are to eat only vegetables and to move into a roof-garden penthouse. So there- if I seem a little preoccupied, it's because I am. I have a lot to do this week. The veggies I could probably do, the penthouse probably not. Will I do either? Nope, but I think I will give up coffee, and start planning my pirate implementation of this which I found here by way of here. I really like it, and if it saves even one kitty whisker's worth of fuel, great. I think any decent swivel-mounted mirror will do fine- I'll affix it to the windowsill in some appropriate and feasible manner yet to be determined. Why do I like it? It eliminates a significant blind spot on the driver side at eye level in the forward field of view. It bypasses distracting (driver must select left or right mirror via tiny, lurchy slider switch) joystick adjustment. It's easy to do, and it's one less thing they can damage in the parking lot. Darn them anyway. Yesterday they left a 2 inch paper-washered nail (I know, I know- I'm trying to find a picture) on the shoulder of the road. When I pulled to the right for a bunch of wailing fire trucks, I picked up the nail and got a flat tire. They will stop at nothing to wreck my car. If I stopped at nothing, I'd wreck my car, too.
