Trying to get going today…

… trying to absorb a whole new job is really taking it out of me.  Perhaps a little stop motion to get me going…

The new CTS-V — not sure what I think yet

I really liked the last Cadillac CTS-V and probably would have bought one if the interior didn’t feel so cheep.  I also like the tweaks they’ve made to the styling of the new CTS.  I’m not sure, however, that I like the new CTS-V.

Sure, it’s got all kinds of sexy under the hood and the interior looks much improved… but the outside looks like they made it a bit too bumpy/bulgy.  I’m sure they wanted to make it seem extra-tough… but it’s looking like they may have gone past the look of a sleek athlete and ended up with something a little more cartoon superhero.


I’ll reserve final judgement until I see it in person, but with 550HP & lbs/ft I suspect I’d never want to be looking at it from the outside.

Back in the USA

The stress of moving and changing jobs has kind of put me off blogging… so for updates I refer to you Paula’s blog.  She has been much better than I about blogging as of late. 🙂

At any rate… after a much delayed flight from Dublin to Chicago we’re relaxing in the American Airlines Admiral club.  I must say, AA is going down hill.  The aircraft here from Dublin was a total beater (our seats had no functioning lights and the channels on the AV system wouldn’t change).  The Admiral’s club is not much better, the seats all look like the upholstery hasn’t been cleaned in a decade.

Yep, delaying my flight for several hours forcing me to have a 5 hour layover makes me grumpy.



Happy New Year from Ireland!

Paula and I are complete old fogies… we rang in 2008 from bed.  On the plus side… it’s the first time in several years we’ve actually been awake at midnight. 🙂

Have a wonderful, safe and peaceful 2008!
