#HowtobeaMAN pt. 2

Twice in one week… When you insist on having your wife take your car, please have the tank filled so she doesn’t have to go through the trouble of stopping by a gas station. After the tire incident this made me so furious again, in the am on my way to the office. In the am, I said I was going to take Maximus. He should’ve just let me take the Prius since I just filled up the tank the day before! He was super insistent on me taking Betty White. As soon as I got in the car, I freaking had fire coming out of my ears. Seriously. I hate things like this… and he knows it. I hope I got mad enough at him for him to remember never to do it again.๐Ÿ˜›

Why I get annoyed… #howtobeaMAN pt.1

So, we landed at LAX and when we got in our car, the tire light was on. That evening, we got home around 12:30am and had to go to the office the next day. That week, I needed to take Maximus because I was driving to Calabasas. When I got in my car, I was immediately annoyed. My husband, the “man” of the house should have taken car of this knowing that I was taking the car that week. He had a day or two to check on it. I mean… isn’t this why I got married? So I don’t have to do these things myself? Especially if he’s the last one that drove it?

New Car Mount @iOttie

I had a great one I got for free through this Amazon deal, but the stickiness on the suction was not as effective so I decided to purchase one so I can continue my facetime activity on my way home from the office.

Betty White @IrvineBMW

So we named Bear’s car. He asked me to name her and I said Betty as a joke, but then I remembered Betty White! What a great name for a white man’s car! HA!

He didn’t think it was so funny, but now it’s stuck. Please welcome, Betty White!

Can’t Mount!

Got this a while ago and now it’s not working well. I cleaned it a few times, but one time it was stuck on the windshield so well I used a card to peel it off. Well, I peeled the suction off the plastic piece so now it doesn’t stay. The suction stays on the window but the suction won’t stay on the holder thingy. Anyway, I’m going to try to superglue it and if it doesn’t work, I’ll have to buy another.

What’s most annoying is that I haven’t been able to properly facetime my gfs on my way home!

Long Ride #VIPrius

The best part about being a passenger is being able to stretch my short little legs. Every Friday, I drive from Beverly Hills to Rancho Mission Viejo. That’s about 80 miles. Call me crazy, but that’s what I/We do.

I had a thought the other day (after Mother’s Day)… that if I could get into the office a little later two days out of the week, I would pick Tyler up in the am and drop him off at school and head into the office. I would stay later to finish up work and also I would be able to avoid traffic. If I got up at 4am, I’d be able to get to Equinox at 4am in Newport, workout and get ready and be at Tyler’s home by 7:00am-7:30am. I’d drop him off at school by 8:00am and get to the office by 10:00am-10:30am ish? The insane part would be that I would have already been up for six hours and had been on the road for 3.5hours of it.๐Ÿ˜›

I’ll have to talk to my Director about this… but I think this would be a great leap in my relationship with Tyler…

#WasteofTime #VIPrius

It’s almost time for a new car… we’ve been discussing possibilities for me and Bear said that the best option would be to get a diesel. My options are then, very limited, but we’ve narrowed it down to… well, just one vehicle.

The BMW 535d. White of course and well, sport, premium, the same options I have on Troy. Bear’s lease is almost up as well, so we are hoping to get an awesome deal on two vehicles as oppose to just one.๐Ÿ˜›

You know how happy I am, since I hate Bear’s car and I love new things!!!

I will miss Maximus and maybe, I’ll name my next baby Maximus Jr. but until I meet the fellow, I won’t know what his name will be. It just comes to me, ya know? I will also miss the high mileage and the 10 gallon tank.

Plug #RunFlats

Run flats do not get plugged. I knew this. That’s why I went to a friend of a friend’s shop to get it done. If I had gone to a random tire shop, they would have had me pay for a new tire, which I knew I didn’t have to do. With all the construction going on around our home, I knew it was just our luck to get a huge as nail stuck in the tire. But once it starts to leak air, I will need to replace the tire. Looking to spend about $500, dammit! Maybe I should have gotten the tire protection when I signed the lease on Troy!

I HATE IT #viprius

I hate putting gas in my car, and what I hate more than that is doing it at the crack of dawn! It’s scary when it’s that late or early. Crazy people may still be out and because it’s dark, it just seems unsafe. That’s why I snap a photo cause I have my phone always ready to take photos of creeps! JK, but I just do…

Putting gas in Maximus is always more pleasant than Hugh since it’s only a 10 gallon tank. It’s quick and especially since I already had 1/2 tank. I thought I would be driving to SB so I filled up but it was NOT necessary!๐Ÿ˜›

@NEXENTireUSA @FormulaD #FDLB

2014 Season of #FD, I worked for Hankook Tires. This event, I was with Nexen. A season in between, it felt like I never left. I realized how much I enjoyed the lifestyle of being on the road and being around the automotive culture. Of course if I was traveling with Mercedes and F1 with Lewis Hamilton, it would be the most ideal situation, but I’m not. And I’m not a brat about it, I’m still grateful for the opportunity.:)

I am only able to join for the Long Beach (maybe Irwindale) event since it’s local. I can’t travel to the other cities due to my regular office hours. I did what I usually do at these events, take care of the VIP hospitality, the owners of the tire companies. Make sure they’re happy, escort them to the different activation tents, make sure they have a beer in their hands. This event was much more simpler due to me only being there on the day of the event. I arrived at 8:30am and hung around and said hello to old faces while I got accustomed to my new work environment. My day was pretty chill. Bear and Tyler joined later when it was Top 16. They had fun, I had a lot of fun and the rest of the night was even more fun. The boys went home first so I joined after I was off.
