How's My Driving?

What happened to all the pictures on my blog from 2007? All gone? Strange.

Here is my tip of the day: If you're driving behind an 18-wheeler (that keeps changing lanes) with a sign on the back that says, "How's my driving?" but the telephone number beneath has been carefully scratched off, move! Clearly someone has had one too many complaints concerning his/her driving ability and needed to solve that problem fast.

Not that I have room to talk. I've had an interesting accident record. 1) Reversing into the side of a one-way bridge, 2) watching in horror as a wheelbarrow flies through the air and bounces off my hood, 3) slamming into one of those orange and white road block barrels that fell into the highway in the snow, 4) getting rear-ended by a kid whose scary father then called me using as many intimidation tactics as he could conjure. Technically, only one of those accidents was my fault. Still, wasn't taking my chances with that truck today--I like my head shaped the way it is now, thank you very much.

Who to vote for in the primaries next month? Gosh, I'm so torn at the moment. Been giving it lots of thought. If you want to try to convince me why one of the candidates is the best thing since marshmallow peeps, that would be fine with me.

So I'm wading through all my emails from work--I actually LIKE having a pile of messages waiting for me--strange, I know--anyway, I'm going through and I get this one of one my supervisors at work, that starts out all business, yadda yadda, and then ends, "You're totally on the beach right now. You schmuck." A lotta nerve. And so true.

Anywho, here are some pics from our trip. We had a blast! But commuting to DC in freezing weather jerked me right back into reality. Sad.

I have the best parents--not that I didn't realize it before, but the events of the past year have really opened my eyes to how truly amazing they are. I am overflowing river of respect, admiration, and love for them.

beach bum time

Well happy New Year!!

So we leave for the Bahamas on Wednesday on the trip Pug won in a sales competition. Sweet! I have a stack of books I hope to get through on the beach, even though that's unlikely because you have to pry me out of the water. Can't wait to take our new camera and attempt to bring back some lovely photos of the island.

iPod, where are you? I need you for my trip. You've been hiding from me for at least a few months now. Probably rebelling from all the crappy music I put on there. Oh well, no airplane soundtrack for me I guess.

I'll be sure to come back nice and tan (or, um, red).
