”Orange Subie” Georgetown, 2018


Today I took my Subaru Crosstrek in for its 12,000-mile service. You know what? I love my Subaru and the dealership treats me so well. My whole experience there has been excellent. Today’s maintenance was performed in about half an hour, which was so quick that I barely got started working before I had to close my laptop and head home. But the Subaru experience and brand matches my personality nicely. With the other cars that we’ve owned (Toyota, Honda, and Nissan), I’ve never felt anything special about them. But Subaru is different… I guess that is the power of customer service and brand. Plus the quirkiness of Subaru is cool. 🤣 I like it!

They had a couple more Crosstreks on the lot today, including this metallic blue one:

This is the color I originally wanted, but when I saw the “Cool Gray Khaki” color, I just had to have it! I haven’t regretted my decision once. But look at that red WRX STI next to the blue Crosstrek. That is one sexy car! I’d love to take one out for a spin. I bet it’s fun, but can it compare to a motorbike? Probably just a different experience I suppose. Vroom!

Later in the afternoon, I went to my local library to vote. I was so surprised to see how long the line was! It’s not even election day, and not the first day of early voting, and yet it was the longest line I’ve ever seen – even more than a presidential election! The line went pretty quickly, and I got my vote in, received the sticker, and headed back home and back to work.

And finally, dinner! Mariko prepared some fried rice for us before heading to work, so we feasted on that and some wontons that I steamed/fried like we do our gyoza. To kick it up a few notches, I diced some Scotch Bonnet peppers that my mom gave me. These peppers are soooo hot that I made sure to wear gloves while dicing them. But they did add a really nice fire to my meal.

Another yummy dinner. 😌
