  1. Every Jeep that I’ve ever rented has led me to believe that they are universally-terrible cars. Either I’ve had atypically-bad rentals, or I do not understand how they manage to sell any cars after a test-drive…


  2. Free Disneyland food idea: Un Poco Loco Moco. Coco-themed, with Mexican flavors in place of the traditional Hawaiian ones (use Spanish rice, replace the gravy with salsa verde, etc).

    Call me, Disney; I’ve got no shortage of food/movie puns for you!


  3. We’re staying in a hotel tonight, to make the drive home from Apple Hill more manageable for our 9-month-old. It’s her first hotel stay (all past trips have been AirBNB), and never before has someone been so excited about a Courtyard Marriott!


  4. Star Wars movie idea that started as a joke but I am now 100% serious about: a The Fast and the Furious-style movie featuring the seedy underworld of illegal podracing.

    It’d also justify another followup to Star Wars Episode I: Racer!


  5. Barack Obama

    I believe that the decision to put the JCPOA at risk without any Iranian violation of the deal is a serious mistake.

    It’s not every day you see a former President directly criticizing the current administration.


  6. Parenting is nothing if not dignified. Just spent 30 minutes straight making fart noises with my mouth. 🤣


  7. I’m constantly amazed at how poorly-publicized it is that tons of local libraries have current ebook and audiobook content available for free, accessible via Libby.
