#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. 😛

@LAAutoShow #2014

Annual tradition. Started with my dad and now it’s just me. Thanks to Frederick, we got freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee tickets. We waited til last minute to go. Sunday at 5:30pm. Literally 1.5 hours before it closed.

Is it just me or it keeps getting worse and worse for the premium automakers?

I noticed that others had more interactive booths and even ride and drives. I guess it makes sense since the common folk isn’t going to purchase the Bentley or the Aston Martin. They definitely catered towards the commoners.

The Porsche exhibit hall had a name change… interesting. 🙂

We were in and out in less than an hour. I just wanted to see my favorite automakers and I was out. It was nice to walk over from the apartment. It stopped raining and we got lucky. We walked over to #YardHouse after and by the time we were done, it was pouring. I didn’t have a jacket or an umbrella. We both got under Bear’s jacket and swiftly walked home. I managed to stay dry. 😛

#ScionICONS #LAAutoShow #PreParty

Thanks Fred and Terry for the invite… you know I can never say no to an open bar… even though it’s beer. 😛 (Can you believe it, I drank more than a cup of beer).

And of course when I don’t bring a jacket, the event is held outside. I have the worst luck in dressing for the occasion.

The party was fun and it was great to see faces I had seen all year during #FormulaD. Finally got a chance to catch up with my two favorite drivers. During the #FD events, they’re too busy racing and focusing and I’m too busy setting up and being hospitable.

Los Angeles Auto Show is this week and another year I won’t be missing it. I was able to get tickets for the show… THANK YOU!

@ScionRacing Pre-Party #SEMA

Thank you for the invite…!!!

Last night was the #Scion Pre-Party for #SEMA and the three little piglets went out to have some fun!

Jo actually didn’t drink a drop! I was so proud! As for me… well, I didn’t feel so well in the middle of the night.

Now I feel fine, ready for Round 2 tonight for Halloween Eve!

I saw a lot of faces that I thought I’d never see after #FormulaDrift.

It’s funny, most of them didn’t recognize me because I wasn’t in my Hankook shirt. 😛

Thank you again, Scion! We had a blast!

THANKS #SCION for a great night!

Movie Night @Petersen_Museum

Sent in an RSVP for movie night at the Petersen Automotive Museum few weeks back. Cars 2 was screening and I know how much Tyler loves the Cars films.

He was happy about it and it was the perfect way to spend the day. I of course made the family leave right before the end of the movie since I didn’t want to leave with everyone else. Traffic and bottlenecking is irritating.

I wish we had been able to have our wedding here. It would’ve been my ideal place. Too bad it’s so freaking expensive!

@FlightCar #LAX

So I love making money while I’m actually not doing ANYTHING, so when I read about this service on some online news publication, I knew it was something I would be totally interested in.

1. Free parking

2. I get paid however much per mile

3. Free carwash

4. Black car takes me to the airport

Living like a poor person sucks, but if there are benefits to making money while being driven by a black car… sign me up.

The only thing I didn’t like about the ride in the black car was that I had to share it with another couple. But I understand, the company is a start up and they ONLY have one black car.

I really hope this business flourishes because it’s a damn great idea.

Who doesn’t want to make money while they’re on vacation/out of town?
