I don't drive and I mostly love public transportation. I recently started using the commuter rail for work this summer...I don't understand why it's so expensive. The trains are never on time (sometimes they are randomly canceled!) and its not like you even get a snack on your ride.
So, every week I take at least 2 personal Ubers and sometimes 4 for work...but I can no longer ignore the bad press Uber is getting for being a bunch of jerks. So, i'm going to ditch Uber and start using Lyft and Sidecar. I have used Lyft before and honestly...its fine but I dont find their app as appealing or sophisticated as Uber. I HATE Lyfts pink mustache thing, but it does look like they are phasing that out and you can ride in the front seat if you want. I'm not as familiar with SideCar but I'll let y'all know more about it in a few weeks.

On another note...Boomerangs in JP had the most amazing collection of teak peppermills. they had hundreds! well, maybe 50? I dunno, it was a lot and really impressive. The stuff they display in their window is up for auction, I bid on the above hook. It was hidden behind a bunch of stuff and i figured no one else would notice it and LOVE it like was tucked all the way in the back behind some stuff. As you can see I won it! I'm a winner.
