Books I Found in a Box Presents:
I-5 Traveller - Rest Areas

It’s 1991 and you’re on I-5 for a long haul with your wife and dog and both of them plead to go to the bathroom. Is the next rest stop nice? Are there vending machines? And just how many public phones are there? Any good scenery? Before Yelp, this would remain a mystery unless you got this gem. Every Rest Area rated from Mexico to Canada is found within. ****

This well-accessorized lady with the foil in her hair apparently was getting her hair dyed next door, but you know - she needed hipster coffee. Even though she appears to be a crazy lady, she’s much more poised than everyone else around her — which leads me to think she just doesn’t give a shit what you think.

Just opened a dusty box I found - and it’s full of 8 track tapes I’ve never seen before! Thanks past hoarder me, for the thoughtful gift!

Coffee By Drone

I woke up this morning and experienced a sudden mental flash, not quite unlike a prophetic vision. I clearly visualized a future where fresh cups of coffee can be delivered by drone — to wherever you are.

Obviously you’ll need to be outside, and accessible. Also you can sponsor cups flown to loved ones or those in the middle of a humanitarian crisis. And if you happen to be a wanted criminal, or a bad tipper - well then let’s just say the drone can deliver that hot coffee directly to your face.

Weirdly, I don’t need to drink coffee first thing in the morning, so this wasn’t a wish fulfillment-thing. More like something that 10 years from now I will find incredibly annoying.

This morning I noticed my neighbor took my trashcans out, which was nice. But when I went to put more more stuff in before they came, I opened up the can and found this inside… 

I screamed a little, then opened it again. Not sure exactly what it was originally, but definitely dead. Definitely smelly. Definitely crawling with maggots. So, of course I took a picture.

This did not cast a pall on any of the rest of the day whatsoever.

Looking at my office wall, I suddenly realize my aesthetic sense has not matured since I last decorated a high school locker. Besides, frames are expensive.

The good news is that New Jersey is largely spared!
