Shift Type and Snapshots -12/13/2010

From JFK- typed out at 9:55am

Ahh, nice to sit back in what may be the best car the garage has, and have a breakfast/lunch. Would that be a brunch? Anyway, figured Monday is always a good day to wait at JFK so I brought the computer along with me. We’ll see how this pans out, I just came from LaGuardia and the phone hotline was an old message from the night before as usual, LGA doesn’t run a tight ship, but the JFK number said that the lot was only at 50% of taxi capacity and moving well, so it was worth a try, rather be waiting in a parking lot for 2 hours to get 50 bucks than 30. However, the message from JFK was from an hour and a half before, so it’s a gamble. Had a great day yesterday, and as usual not such a good one on Saturday. There was one problem fare, but eh, I don’t want to get all worked up about it right now. I’m gonna eat my hash browns, and relax.

Some photobooth shots from the cab-

Who needs to run the engine, when you have piping hot box of fried potatoes to keep you warm? it's fogging up the windshield! I warn you now, the computer's camera flips around the image like a mirror, so everything is actually on the reverse side, and to make matters more confusing, I'm sitting on the passenger side.

The Crown Victoria aficionado might see something new and lovely on this car: The Headrests! They are huge!! Oh I can't describe how great it feels to drive a 2011 Crown Victoria, but I'll try, tight suspension, more power, brakes that stop really well but also stop smoothly, a trnsmision that puts in the power with no herkyjerkyness, and best of all, a really tight suspension that can handle all but the worst of bumps, i.e. craters! the car is amazing, and they aren't even sold to civilians anymore, you can't buy them if you wanted to. I said suspension twice didn't I? oh well, it's just that good.

So was it worth it to go into the JFK lot? As a rule I won't go in there unless it's nearly empty.

I've been following you a long time and this is the first time I can recall you putting up a picture of yourself.

Woo boy, you are a cute! I'm a girl, I can say that. If you weren't on the opposite coast from me, I'd ask you out. ;)
