Used to Beige

Perhaps I’ve been living in the suburbs for too long. I've gotten used to all the beige. The drive to my new job is so visually stimulating, I’m worried that I’ll have an accident. There’s just so much to see, and I thought I’d share some more of it with you.

One of my favorite things in the world is incongruous pairings - like when two movie titles on a marquee turn out funny or suggestive. Here’s two billboards that make me chuckle:

As I mentioned before, there are a lot of hand-painted signs along my route.

And here’s a tattoo parlor with three graffiti-slathered limos parked out front.

This place with the flying saucer on the roof and the rockets on the side sells surplus hardware, electronics, tools, and salvage goods.

I like this sign from a no-nonsense used-car lot.

And this auto repair garage is run by Christians, if that matters to anyone.
