my life

i am a warriors fan. i am a giants fan. i am a 49ers fan. i have a good-looking wife and kids. i do miss driving a car with a manual transmission although driving an electric car is pretty cool too. i donate money every month to the aclu and eff. my right shoe wears down differently than my left shoe. i have gained 5 (um, 10) pounds since i began working at a startup in san mateo because they offer free food and drinks.

am i getting old?

i usually watch channel 2 news at night, but the remotes were across the room and the cost/benefit ratio wasn’t enough to get me out of the chair, so i stuck with channel 7 news. during the segment, i saw a commercial for a volvo c70 convertible:

man, that’s a good looking car. i then took a step back and had a moment of self-reflection – am i getting older now that a volvo looks pretty good to me? i will say that volvo’s have been softening up for years, considering they also fathered the 240dl some years ago:

but still, it’s kind of a paradigm shift for me. that volvo c70 above is no bmw z4, but at this point in my life i could use a back seat to hold the two car seats and have a teenager stashed in the middle. i also drive slower now and would lose my valuable civic hybrid carpool sticker status! (sorry wifey). check out the roof-folding mechanism below – gotta make sure you get the service contract on that sucka:
