I was thinking (again ?),....what I need for this journal is a sponsor. Not like the obligatory garbage we're forced to have on top of every journal, but my own sponsor. You know, like..."Jimmy's Journal is brought to you by Johnny Walker Black...Once you go Black, you can't get credit."
Ok ! Maybe that one won't fly, but something befitting. Or maybe Mercedes Benz ! I could do a commercial driving to AREA 51 in my new Mercedes Benz drinking a glass of Johnny Walker Black. Ok, ....this may take a little more thought, but you get the idea.
Maybe I could get an agent....nah, he'd probably have me endorsing Depends. I can see it now..."Would Jimmy date a girl over 80? I don't know...Depends." I've got to think a little more about this.
The Pictures: Speaking of Mercedes, the new prototype Mercedes Benz has been shown to the public and like most Mercedes, it's beautiful. A sleek, hard-top convertible, with the wing-like doors and a body design that is fantastic. The only minor problem that I noticed is that, ...um, it doesn't have a steering wheel. It doesn't seem to have a gas peddle or brake peddle, either.
The reality of it all is that those minor little items have been replaced with a joy stick. Yeah, a joy stick! Just think about the poor bastard that's been saving his money for years and when he can finally afford to buy one, he has to take his kid with him so that he can get the damned thing home. See for yourselves.
