If while driving, I feel the urgent need to poop, I suddenly become a better driver than Bullitt, Popeye Doyle, and Ryan Gosling combined.

It helps if you lean out the window and inform other drivers that you’re in a hurry because you have to “make big boy toilet”.

I remember when being able to read a map made me a valuable asset on road trips. Now… now I must be satisfied to merely be witty and urbane at 60 miles per hour.

I didn’t do much today that was worth documenting. So I took a picture while driving to the art store this evening. Squiggles. It sums up this month pretty well.

These are the big smokestacks in the industrial part of Norfolk, right on the side of I-464, just before downtown. They really get billowing in the cold mornings.

Snapped this today while driving. I feel like I take too many pictures while driving. Anyway, I didn’t fiddle with the focus enough beforehand so it paid too much attention to the windshield and the rain. It ended up kinda cool-looking; like a shot from a Sofia Coppola picture. Also: the license plate on that pick-up truck said “9-11-001”. I don’t understand why anyone would do that. What’s his endgame? What’s the message he’s trying to communicate?

I snapped this while driving to Norfolk. I don’t know why I did it and I fully expected it to turn out looking like a big bag of crap but the blur and the lights work together, somehow. Fun fact: I’ve never been to Elizabeth City. Even though it’s like one hour south of The ‘Peake and it’s mentioned prominently on several highway signs around here… I’ve never set foot in that city.

It’s the letter B, written in lights. This is a manipulated picture of my car radio. I’ve learned how to use the weird squiggly glitch on my camera. Now you’re all going to pay.

I drove down to the Border Station after eating tonight to see if they had any cool t-shirts or goodies. They didn’t, really. But I did decide to pull over at the border and take a picture of a sign I should have stolen and hung in my bedroom, years ago.
