Today Would Be An Unwise Day To Act Undercivilized Around Me
I came out this morning to find a little present left on my car.

If this does not say a lot about me--> What really drives me nuts about this picture is that the cup is not centered along the honda logo and equally between the two windshield wiper fluid dispensers...

I like to think of you as "insane in a good way." (That's my own self-image, by the way.)

Thanks...I think...(grin)

I totally understand.

You know, your name has too many letters/syllables for my American self. If we were on a team or something, you'd have to be "A-T". You might hate it, but it would work.

The only people who ever used my full first name were my late mother and my late grandmother (usually when they were angry). Most people call me André. Family and friends call me Tasch (sounds like Peter Tosh). Take yer pick...

and the accent messes people up as well...

my bloody mother thought it would be cool to give her son 5 bloody names...ugh

I must be insane in a good way too, because the first thing I thought was "In & Out!! Yum-O!" and the second, almost simultaneous, thought that popped into my head was "Aw, she bought her car in Valencia!" I was raised in the Santa Clarita Valley, and now, living in Guam, I guess I'm just a tad homesick. ;)

Actually, I bought my car in Texas and had it shipped to California. Them Insights were scarce!

PS Thanks for reading me over there in Guam!

I'm glad it wasn't a piece of bologna.

FWIW I gave both my sons 5 names and they seems to be pretty happy about it.

I'm writing about André-Tascha's work at, and his last name is Lammé, and every time I type his name, it's like doing finger exercises with all the punctuation all over the place!

Dear lady, you know your willfully open and public life exposes you to more than this annoyance. I am not surprised except that you haven't been harassed much more then this in the land of fruits, nuts and flakes. I am glad that New York has made you streetwise.

OK. 5 names? Shoot, I guess yon't be laughin' and a' smirkin' at Billy Joe Jim Bob no more!

This is true, Rad, but for the occasional evil-threatener, I ring the duty officer at the LA FBI office. For this, that seemed a tad excessive. We do look out for each other in our neighborhood, and I have the community policing officers' cell phone numbers.

Maybe it was just some club soda in case you had a hangover?

I'm so glad you said that, Andre. I was very afraid I was the only one showing a touch of OCD.

My second thought was that if the cup had left a wet little ring I'd have been especially ticked off.
