i know i said i'd stop


i know, i know, i promised - no more posts aboot the new car, but seriously. it rules. you know, you never realize how unsafe you feel in your crappy old car until you get a cushy nice new one. today was an insane one for driving though. i went to Port Hope today and realized that HOLY CRAP - the wind must have been blowing aboot 1000km/h. it was to the point where the big ass trucks were being affected.

i had almost forgotten what it was like to be in a small town though. the type of place where it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, people smile at you and say hi to you on the street. hell, even the teenagers were pleasant. i wish that someone like me could get a job there, but unfortunately the IT industry doesn't thrive particularly well in towns of less than 4000 people. to tell you the truth, i'm not entirely sure what sort of industry (other than tourism) would support a town like that. farming i s'pose.

    That's pretty cool about the car. Congratulations! The egg salad post was really funny (although I almost gagged while reading it). Only one thing could be worse... warm egg salad. Mmmmmmm! So Yummy!
