I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really want to get a new car. My Caddy is paid off, got about 185K miles on it, and has some minor issues.
But with so much uncertainty with the sequestration and possible furloughs ahead, I guess it would be wise to wait for a couple of months to see where this thing is heading.
I was this close ->II to buying a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited yesterday
That's what you get for trying to be cute! bwahahahahahhahaha
So we've had about 18 inches of snow here in the last week, and the snow melts during the day and freezes at night, turning our work parking lot into an ice rink.
me and several other people are doing baby steps across the ice from the parking lot towards the buildling, but there's this one guy that's walking normally, even had a bit of a swagger to his stride. sure enough, he almost made it to the sidewalk, and weeeeeeeee! legs flew out from under him, and he landed right on his ass. He dropped his taco bell bag and his cup of soda splashed everywhere and started rolling down the hill. After we made sure he was okay and he got in the elevator in the lobby, myself and a little old lady proceeded to laugh ourselves to tears.
Happens to the best of us. I have pretty good balance, so I know how to keep from completely busting my ass, though I might slip a little. The only time I ever busted my ass on ice was when I was alone in a 7-11 parking lot.
I don't think I'd ever recover from busting my ass in front of co-workers, or (even worse) busting my ass with numerous items in my hands. Everytime I see that happen to someone, I immediately try to re-imagine it with slo-mo, voice and all

Amazing how much better fast food chains are around the world than in US
Watching Travel Channel HD right now and they are talking about Fast Food in Europe
Every "value" meal comes out to like $8 after tax, and the last time I went to BK it took 12 minutes to get my food. (Yes, I looked at the time stamp on the receipt)
What happened to paying $2.49 for a meal that's ready in 30 seconds because it was made 2 hours earlier? I want that kind of fast food back.
Which, in a bubble, is true. But if we wanted a good burger, we wouldn't be going to Burger king. We go there when we want a greaseball that's "flame broiled" in the microwave and under that heat lamp......
I used to love LOVE BK. I've been on a workout kick since Jan. 2nd and have avoided fast food since. My cheat meal for the month of Jan. was a Large Double Whopper meal. Let's just say BK is on an indefinite leave of absence. For this month, my cheat meal will be a variety of items from Taco Bell. I'm actually really excited about that.
Gotta have my BK. If I'm going to eat something fastand unhealthy that has the nutritional value of a rusty handrail, I want it to taste good. You go ahead and enjoy that stale 5 Buck Box, setsfire.
Sucks how much food costs nowadays, which is why the deal the US Army had for civilians in Seattle was great. Good lunch for 4 bucks.
Go outside the base and it was 6 or 7 bucks
While I hope to move out of North Carolina and return to Washington, I will miss one thing if that happens
My home town was carved out of swampland.
This illness won't damn go away

I understand that people get sick when you go outside in freaking Alaska or somewhere like the Desert
I'm fine with that, the body can't take that
But this is damn Washington DC not Antarctica. How in the world does it feel like -10 degrees here, when the thermometer clearly says 39? How is this possible for it to be this cold when I'm wearing 8 ****ing layers of clothing?
