@selenana It made me laugh :)
I like how this article about secrets literally is secret, revealing not even a general area in either Spain or Japan. SPAIN: Has good bread from a truck somewhere!
@moreteawesley Same, with the groggy headache. Feels like I must only nap on my face?
As a former energy efficiency engineer, this: "The air conditioning in our office is insanely cold, so we had the window open" is absolutely killing me :)
@Arran@twitter The pop-up headlights were the best and it performed surprisingly well for such an old car. Felt bad for anyone that had to sit in the back, though. They'd almost be more comfortable in the trunk. Memories is right!
This evoked a lot of memories of my first car, a 1984 Honda Prelude that had previously belonged to my grandfather (who, long since legally blind, had not driven it in years). It had amazingly low mileage when he gave it to me in the 90s, but after years of commuting to school and work it also finally died of a broken head gasket, smoking like it was on fire on a 100+ degree day in July. Like your Legend, it was worth far less than the repairs would have cost. It also had so many idiosyncratic faults that, even if it were repairable for some sensible figure, it was probably worth scrapping anyway. When it finally died I asked my dad if he could call around to all the local places that would take in donated cars for tax breaks. He did this a little too efficiently and the car was gone before I returned from a weekend out of town. He had not noticed the aftermarket stereo equipment I'd installed and not yet had a chance to remove. Oh well.
Cross-post this to Splitsider because I LOLd out loud.
Will the thrift store give me more for these ratty old jeans if I make them into jorts?
