Should I get a Jaguar XF Sportbrake?


I spotted one today at a car meet. I think it is the second one I've ever seen. Maybe it's the same car.

It is being discontinued, after just two years. I don't think they ever sold a thousand of these in America. Rumors are you can get one with a $30,000+ discount.

Full House (of Mustaches)

Eating the Globe: Slovenia


Last night, I went out with a few college friends and I started off with a glass of Slovenian rose. I'm not a big rose fan so I couldn't tell if it was good or not.

We ended up having a great time. We have all changed so much and yet not at all.

1. I had always assumed it was thrusters.
2. I don't know how I passed AP Physics. This went over my head.
