I suppose I shouldn't complain about people who read my blog and don't use facebook. After all, facebook is pure evil, whereas I make boatloads of money off my blog. Though, having recently done my taxes, it seems that my boat last year was 1/3 of what it was in 2008. And I blame facebook for that.

So, I bought the Ford F150, as you can probably guess from the picture below. I had debated getting the Ram 1500, but I decided I couldn't live without a 6.5' bed, and the Ram is only available with a 5.5' bed if you get the crew cab.

It's a King Ranch, which means I'm an all uppity cowboy. If I were an uppity city-slicker, I'd have a Platinum. If were an aging, pony-tailed hippy, I'd have gotten a Harley Davidson edition.

The King Ranch gives you this fancy stitched leather interior, though the burled walnut is "faux."

It also gives you these nifty buttons here:

That, when you push them, blow air conditioned air through all these little holes on the seats:

It is sublime.

And yes, that's a USB port there on the dash below the climate controls that allows me to play music off thumb drives as well as to mount any of the popular mp3 players to play and/or charge. I also have a 10GB hard drive on which I can store music, but it will only rip music off audio CDs. It won't copy mp3s from the USB port or from an mp3 CD. Stupid sop to the RIAA.

You also get little spotlights that light up the running boards when you get in and out.

And, if you get the SatNav system, you get one of these things under one of the back seats, too:

I also got the bed access steps that pop out from the sides to let you get to the front of the bed without climbing in it.

And, of course, the most fun was when I got to use my Sawzall to cut away the bottom part of this cabinet so that I could get the door open when I parked in the garage.

So when you push the button you can get a "blow job" while driving?

I think you were anonymous. If you ask me.

Given your track record, I wouldn't think of asking you. But I assure you I was not. I think I know who it was, because shortly after putting up this post, I got a FB friend request from one of my blog readers who wasn't a FB friend of mine. But then again, I got another one last night, too (though that person has a blogger account so wouldn't likely leave a comment as "anonymous".
