Case of the Mondays

Don't Drink, Drive, And Park Next To Me

I’d say the positioning of this van next to the Blingmobile was a pretty accurate omen for at least the first half of Monday. Seriously, who does this? And what does it say for my build that I was able to get in the car without the door touching the van? Common sense is extremely uncommon, that’s a fact. Other stuff just was really, really blah all day — not a fun one at all.

However, the weather’s been nice today, if almost hot — 86 at the airport! — so I refused to be defeated. It called for an outdoor lunch of quesadillas and water at Juanita Greenberg’s Nacho Royale on King Street, which was a pretty effective reboot of the day. Here’s the view from the back porch:

The warm weather combined with the Mondayness of it all had me craving a margarita. And while I decided not to make the trek down to Vendue Range for the rooftop experience that I alluded to in my tweet, I know Yo Burrito downtown would set me up right. And they delivered.

So Monday, here’s to you — because as crappy and oppressive as you can be, you are not infallible, and I once again claim victory.

    Apartment parking has become one of my biggest pet peeves.

    I mean, seriously…there are lines. How difficult is it to park your car within the two white lines? And why does this little bit of common sense seem to elude so many apartment dwellers?

    I’d say, Jared, that the driver of that van deserved to have his vehicle touched by your door. Repeatedly.

    Oh man, at TTC last week, there was a parking spot in a sweeeet location, but nobody would park there because they didn’t think they could fit. I backed in like I normally do, and at the speed I normally do. 3 inches on the passenger side, and a foot on the driver’s side. Sad thing is..I was centered between the lines. The two offending cars on either side were sub-compacts. Totally inexcusable. One was better than a foot over the line, the other was on the line. Tiny cars, and they can’t park it anywhere between the lines? I’ve seen people park extended cab dually trucks between the lines…in a hurry..and on the first try.

    Roar.
