Sometimes I really want to build a street legal kick butt Baja type truck. Nasty cammed V8 and all the suspension travel.

I have no desire to drive something like that off road. I want it to drive into town for date nights and grocery runs.

Dusterbd13's forum handle is "Duster Buster" in my head, and even though I know it's a pun on disturbed, I'm sticking with Duster Buster. 

For a loooooong time, I thought it was DusterBird.

I want one too. Only I day dream of baja hopping the ditches while all the poors slug it out on asphalt.

I always thought it was duster bd13. Like the bd13 was a name or something. Imagine my surprise when it was michael.

Contrary to popular belief, my handle has nothing to do with low-rent musical instruments.  "Kazoo" (or more commonly "K-zoo" or just "The Zoo") is short for Kalamazoo.

Swmbo has an adult daughter. Long story real short, I'm not a fan. She really likes to get in on my groceries when we make something good (all the time) and not help out cleaning or wherever, since she can barely afford her own E36 M3. No job- living off uncle Donny's fun bucks. Hasn't worked in almost a year. Hasn't really tried to. 

 

Anyhow, we were making curry for dinner. Swmbo jr loves curry. I knew she'd want it. I offhandedly suggested we add carrots and such because we have a lot of carrots right now, and it would be a nice little crunch. 

 

Swmbo jr is allergic to carrots. I knew this going in. It's why I suggested carrots. Say what you will, but this young woman has made it abundantly clear she has no respect for me, or her mother. Shes also made it more clear that she is an adult and she can do what she wants. Somehow though, she believes we should share with her because we have $$$ and eat well, but she doesn't think she should have to share back, or even help. It'll take her two berkeleyin days to unload the dishwasher. So, I get in what I can.

My BMW is my favorite of the cars I own, aside from maybe the Courier.

I love BMW wheels and always watch for nice ones to come up cheap. I bought a square set of 17s today with great tires for uber cheap, so I can autox or do am HPDE this year.

 

Confession: I didn't register or drive the car in 2020..

I cannot agree on Pizza Hut, at least for the pizza. Best I can say is it is better than papa John's. However, I'm not one to judge, as long as it isn't papa John's, or  using Provell cheese. We frequently get the Dominos pan pizza. 2 pizzas will be about $15, and last us 2-4 meals. I had them at a party a year or 3 ago and was SHOCKED at how good they are. No, they will never replace our favorite pizzerias - not even close. But they're half the price and it takes half the time as thin crust, and more food - or they're 1/4 the price of deep dish, and 1/4 the time. Where they really win though is the side dishes. 
 

It's like comparing wonder bread to a good bagel made by someone in a yarmulke. They don't compare - the bagel is sooooo much better, but I still like a fries baloney sandwich with American cheese on wonder bread.

Huh.  While Papa John's will not match a good local place, I find the pizza perfectly acceptable.  I do order them baked well done.

Pizza Hut, on the other hand, I only ever ate because my elder daughter read so many books in third and fourth grade that she kept us in free Pizza Hut coupons.  That was about 20 years ago and I haven't touched a Pizza Hut pizza since she went to middle school and they stopped having that promotion.

Domino's is OK to me but DW doesn't like it.  I agree their side selection is way better.

But Pizza Hut is terrible.

My daughter (22 years old) told me last night that her co-workers (approx same age) had no idea that there was a flightless bird named the kiwi.  Not really a confession, just did not know where to post this.

I just assumed it was disturbed with a 13 on the end, looks like I was right.

 

I should have picked something less straightforward for my name......

Dominos pan > Dominos regular > all the others. Little Caesar's is the worst, but it's hot. And ready. And $5. 

 

papa John's is worse than a $5 frozen pizza. So no thanks. Pizza Hut, I haven't had since college - we had one on our meal plan. I honestly thought it was decent. Wayyyyy better than papa John's, which I lived next to for a semester.

There is no bad pizza, only bad value.  If I pay Chicago deep dish price for Little  Caesar's quality I'm gonna be pissed. Not at the pizza, but because I paid waaaaay too much.  

Remember, pizza is like sex, even if it's bad, it's still pizza

Little Caesars is good for bad pizza. Wish there was one closer to here. There used to be one close to my previous job and it was good to get when they had the free pizza giveaways.
