I’m glad to see this week go, and I’m looking forward to most of next week flying by. So Tuesday I discovered a lump in the skin of my back, turns out its some sort of cyst that they’re going to remove next Friday. Started out about the size of a small zit a month back, now its about the size of a quarter… Didn’t want to play around, and it annoys the hell out of me anyhow. A friend recommended sticking it with something and letting all the fun out. I think I’ll leave it to the surgeons. 🙂
So I’ve been driving for the past 10 years now, and never tried snow tires. After getting my ass stuck on Breakneck Rd in Vernon, NJ last Sunday morning due to snow I decided to give them a try. I ended up going with a 15” wheel and tire package from Tire-Rack, a set of steel rims and Bridgestone Blizzaks. This morning I had my first real trial by fire with them, and I was beyond impressed. I made it to work on time before everyone, the only things slowing me down were common sense and morons in SUV’s. Ya know folks, I’m sorry, but if you can’t do at least 30mph in any condition, you should not be driving. Towards the end of my morning commute we ended up stuck behind some moron in a minivan who likely wasn’t ready for the weather conditions and proceeded to slow everyone down. Now don’t get me wrong, if my car can’t do more than 10mph without getting loose, I won’t do over 10mph. But in a situation where its snowing, if all you can do is 10mph, there are going to be a bunch of people at the first hill ready to slay you for taking their momentum. If you can’t handle driving in bad weather, stay home or get a ride from someone who can handle it.
Not sure what the plan is this weekend, can’t do much with this thing on my back, I’ve just been tired as Hell lately and would just like to get back to the gym. Excessive drinking sounds good!
