Off on a Little Jaunt


to visit the mountains. The mountains are actually a lot grander than they appear in this photo.

That or the jar of cheese things is huge.

I'll try to drive some Albanians over to your site. After all, I am the David Hasselhoff of Eastern Europe. Number ONE in Slovakia.

Have fun in the mountains. (Which mountains?)

Matt-
you are correct! The cheese ball jar is huge which is why (a) it obstructs the beautiful view of the mountains and (b) my fingertips are orange and my stomach is queasy

Blue State-
With your pedigree in Eastern Europe, I am thrilled you have stepped in to assist!!
Those are the Blue Ridge Mtns. - partially obscured by the cheese balls.
I'll let you know if I have a pleasant surprise when I check my google map overlay :)

That UTZ jar looks like the newest accesory for the Elephant. If it ever were to go fast enough, the top pops off of the jar. Then the cheeseballs fly out and implode on the car jamming your rear bumper like paintballs on Red Bull.

Those mountains look like hills....

now that is the kinda of car I want - why can't we get something like this in the uk with a decent sized trunk.
Those cheese balls are really getting around.
no more albanian visitors for me, but I seem to be attracting the ukranians now - 3 today acc to my goggle map overlay.

It's funny you say that because as I was taking the photo a huge gust of wind came along and blew the UTZ onto the hood. The lid is so loose it doesn't take much to pop it off. I am so anal about my car that I would be aghast if the UTZ were part of a bumper mishap such as you describe :)

Well I've always wished for car based missiles to fire at the Virginians that populate Maryland's Beltway ;-)

Now I'll just have to run up to Hanover and buy a couple of jars of those prized orange balls of fun and toss them behind me for those who decide to ride my bumber.

Heck I'll just pop the top and toss the whole jug at 'em.

Oh to attract the Albanians, you have to rub sausage and sauerkraut on your neck.

Mark-
Nowwwww you tell me the secret to attracting the Albanians -- you were holding out ;)
remind me to stay off the Maryland beltway once you get this contraption off the ground...

Those aren't mountains. If you want mountains, you have to come to Colorado.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are pretty impressive when you are on them. Kind of punky from as far away as you seem to be (three states away?) Post pictures when you get on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Blue State Cowgirl said...

And by the way, coming from a predominantly Muslim country, Albanians would not react to you rubbing sausage on your neck (but it works on the Bulgarians). I will say most of them have gotten to by blog by Googling "Ryan Lochte Naked" so they aren't that orthodox.

Mad Asthmatic said...

I obviously have acquired the eastern european vibe!!!

Blue State-
Hoping to be near the parkway tomorrow so I'll see what I can do in the way of photos. Excellent point re: the sausages. Mark had me convinced he had some inside knowledge of the Albanians...I don't want to offend, as then they may never visit my site. Being a vegetarian, I don't normally have sausages around, but if it will work to attract Bulgarians...

MA-
you have, indeed!

Mark said...

Since all the Albanians in my family are Catholic, the sausage & sauerkraut thing works everyday but fridays of course.

carma said...

Mark-
I should have known that you were of Albanian Catholic descent. My apologies for doubting your advice..
carma

Mark said...

LOL, no actually I'm of Polish & Irish Catholic descent, but you know those randy Poles....or maybe it was the Cajun line that jumped the shark?

carma said...

Mark-
sounds like there is a good chance an Albanian may have snuck into your lineage at some point..I'll make you my official Albanian commenter until I get a "for reals" one :)
