they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

    Looks like you're having a great day. I attribute most of your happiness to #9. Having a window at work is a necessity.

    (OK, just kidding...21 and 22 are probably the most important.)

    I drive a 2007 Yaris and get 34-38 in the city and 44-46 on the Highway.... might want to have the mechanicals checked, that is way too low for a Yaris.

    Hey DKC, what kind do you have? Four doors? Black?

    I'm thinking of trading in my VW for a more efficient car. I'm not so into the flashy sports car anymore. Less flash, more Yaris.

    Two-door hatchback. Blue. Very roomy. Best part is driving by gas stations and under SUVs.
