    This is a list. A list o' things
  1. I enjoyed shoveling yesterday.
    • No, I won't shovel for you.
  2. I did not enjoy the traffic direction yesterday as I was disallowed from access Raymond Rd for no reasons apparent twice
    • There were no hills OR accidents, the police just wouldn't let me through for a right turn in both cases.
  3. People.. it was snow. Why do you need to drive like maniacs in fresh snow?
  4. TDS rescheduled my appointment to today from Wednesday and didn't tell me. That was great, wasting 4 hours Wednesday afternoon.
  5. Bad news at work today which disrupted many of my long-term goals for my team.
    • Nothing super bad, and I'm fine, just hindering my VISION(goo).
  6. Deadwood + Whiskey+ delivery last night = awesome.
  7. The cats freaked out last night over something in the vents. I think we may have a mouse.
    • At 3am, of course.
  8. I found the main water shut off for the house. This was when
    1. Fox was showering.
    2. I was looking for the EXTERNAL water valves.
    • It is such a tiny pipe...
  9. Apparently I have a good chance of winning the Saddleback Leather photo contest. This according to the person taking my submission.
  10. Sublet my apartment!!
  11. James Lipton's beard will show you how to text proper-like.
  12. TGIMFF!

    Man, drivers and snow. Amirite?

    I don't think he can even reach the pedals.

    You know, because he's short.

    Yeah, I got it. But he's not short.

Ian and I fight about our difference in driving styles all of the time. He hates the way that I drive yet makes me drive almost all of the time.

I like it when he drives to MKE, because then I can nap. :)

Does he drive like a crazy Russian grandmother?
bizarre From: bizarre Date: December 4th, 2009 02:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Grandmother is the operative word there. I have never met a man that was such a careful driver.

You should drive with me. You'd hate it. :) I am the most defensive and cautious driver ever. TRUE FAX.
bizarre From: bizarre Date: December 4th, 2009 02:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am an aggressive driver, to a fault. A running theme in my personality as of late I fear.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 4th, 2009 02:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hooray for faults! They taste like acid reflux.
bizarre From: bizarre Date: December 4th, 2009 02:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Indeed.

you must have gone through later. accidents on raymond like crazy, all one-car, mostly SUVs driving like nitwits.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 4th, 2009 02:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
The detour was ridiculous. I had to go up three extra hills just to get home. Plus, on Putnam is nearly hit a kid playing in the snow because I was sliding. I managed to wedge my car into the curb instead.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: December 4th, 2009 03:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
oh man, putnam. it was like a demolition derby, cars sliding everywhere. from what i saw, it was all started by a dude in a beater that had no business going uphill in GOOD weather.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 4th, 2009 03:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
That batstidge. That was my first delay. Cops wouldn't let me turn right onto Putnam from Maple Grove. Near as I could tell, it was clear by the time I got there.

Prairie was fun after surmounting the rest. I live just before the crest of that hill.. people were stuck in front of my house.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: December 4th, 2009 03:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
i waved at those cops as i turned right FROM putnam to maple grove. ha!

YOU WERE THAT CLOSE TO MY HOUSE AND YOU DIDN'T STOP FOR A BEER?
assfingers From: assfingers Date: December 4th, 2009 03:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
i am ALWAYS that close to your house.
well, not currently, but for a few seconds most days.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 4th, 2009 03:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I feel so rejected. As do my cats, my house, the little lawn gnomes waiting to steal your shoes...
assfingers From: assfingers Date: December 4th, 2009 03:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
we shall do this next week, then, provided i am allowed to turn where i want to.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 4th, 2009 03:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sweet.

SUVs and any other vehicle with 4WD are horrible in the snow because they think they are immune.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: December 4th, 2009 03:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
-exactly-

and they turn out to be soccer moms with their cellphones

WHAT IF THAT CALL WAS REALLY IMPORTANT SO IMPORTANT THAT BREAKING AND PAYING ATTENTION WOULD EXPLODE HER CAR WHAT IF KEAVU REEVES WAS ON THE OTHER LINE???
assfingers From: assfingers Date: December 4th, 2009 03:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
i think it was called the bus that couldn't slow down.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 4th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
You could have jumped for it. There was plenty of snow to cushion your landing.

Some people need to study physics. Momentum is evil in winter.
bizarre From: bizarre Date: December 4th, 2009 03:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
THIS.

Hm... I think your scale should go to 11.
