How Do It Know?

Updated the sidebar massively, after realizing that the little icon to the right of the “widget” rectangle allows more customization. It is something else.

I especially like the consolidation of the archives and categories. It is now a drop down, and even shows how many posts are in a certain category (such as “graves”) or month.

Enjoy the new look.

I’ve Never Fasted from a Car Before

…but I am this week. Feeling extremely claustrophobic as well. It was so bad yesterday that I briefly snapped at my mother (sorry mom!) when she asked me if I was eating right.

Philly Car Share


But there may be help – Philly Car Share is the largest citywide car sharing program in the universe. You sign up for free or for $15 bucks a month for a discounted rate. You can rent a hybrid for up to 24 hours and 200 miles for… $30 bucks. Amazing. It gets even better when you find out that Fuel is Included.

The catch?

None in theory. But in my case, I need to get to a parking lot, and there are none around here.

So it works out this way:

:20 Walk to the train (get there 10 minutes early)

:20 Take it to Center City (one of dozens of lots)

:20 Walk to the lot and get the car

So as you can see, if I lived near a parking lot with these cars in it, it would be a snap. This also forces me to master the public transportation grid out here.

I would suggest that you even sign up from out of state if you are planning to visit Philly and need a rental. $30 per day.
