People of Eckington, People of XM

You all need to get together.
I was chatting with a co-worker whose husband works for XM and as we were talking we came to the topic of parking. I gather some areas around XM has residential parking so husband would get parking tickets if he parked there. There are also meters, but when he parks at a broken one, does the right thing and calls it in to get fixed, it gets fixed and he gets a ticket.
As we were talking I was thinking. There are people around XM with garages and carports in their backyard that are empty when the owners are off to work. Maybe residents and car bound XM employees who can’t seem to ponder using the metro can work together. For a monthly fee of something like $30-$50 a month (I have no clue, I don’t have a car so I’ve never paid attention to the cost of parking) the XM employee can use the private parking and the homeowner gets a few extra bucks.

Stoner dog

This posting is dedicated to a very extremely laid back beagle when I say you failed puppy, you failed. You failed to protect your people’s property. You failed to even bark when the intruders came in. Now your mommy has to look at you and know that you won’t lift a paw to aide her. That’s love, and I hope you appreciate it.
B&L were robbed this week and hopefully the police will reunite them with their property. We talked about the crime, and blamed part of it on their dog. Unlike other dogs in the hood who bark at strangers and sometimes friends who come to your door, stoner dog is way too low key to be bothered with that barking thing. Stoner dog is like, “Dude, make your self at home. Oh, sure, take what ever you need. Got any munchies on you?”
The moral of this tale? If your dog is laid back, I mean really laid back, get an alarm system.
