Damn, it’s been a while since I have cracked open the computer to scribble down my thoughts and meanderings of life. Seems as good a time as any considering the elements outside have projectile vomited everything in Mother Nature’s stomach at us!
Let’s get real. It’s a weather disaster of a night here in the Northeast. Snow and icy wet conditions have made the evening commute a living Hell for many. 3 + hours trapped in cars crawling along at what is normally a 45 minute trek. Subways and mass transit facing
sporadic massive delays. Accidents everywhere. Trees down. It’s really not a great night to go outside and do anything. I bet even Mayor Dumblasio is whining about not being able to go to his gym all the way in Brooklyn tomorrow because he actually has to run the city during a snowstorm. Hey, great job Mr Mayor at doing the crappiest job possible and being totally unprepared for this storm. Of course, he blames the weather forecast. Thumbs up!
Oh, I call bullshit on this snowy mess on November 15th.
Really? Really? I don’t even know what to do with this.
I mean, it’s bad enough that retailers have already been shoving the Elf on a Shelf up our collective asses before Halloween like a grandma furiously stuffing a turkey elbow-deep on Thanksgiving day. Talk about holiday season pre-ejaculation!
What else do I have to do tonight other than pour myself a tasty bourbon (Blanton’s – so good!) and take a seat on the couch? Cozy, warm, and dry. Pretty exciting Thursday night football game on between the Packers and Seahawks. Snacks by my side – peanuts, hummus, and pretzel sticks. I am becoming absurdly addicted to hummus. This is becoming a problem. I woke up the other morning with hummus on my face. An empty container on the floor. Strange pics on Facebook that I had to quickly
Speaking of problems, has anyone noticed the coupon receipt strips you receive at CVS checkout are bordering on the insane? The one I got the other night after buying a can of shaving cream could double as a winter scarf. It’s odd. Some products purchased seem to trigger different coupon lengths. A bag of M&M’s maybe two coupons. Cold medicine, maybe three. Lube and an Orgasamatic 3000 with multi-speed settings – 36 coupons!
Wait, what? Not that I really know that as a fact or anything. Just speculating. Asking for a friend and all that.
Well, I guess I’ll take a few days off of my running regimen until the snow and ice melts away. Might be good to give it rest and re-energize my body until the roads clear up. This past month has been a whirlwind of activity including multiple work related conventions, travel back and forth from coast to coast for biz, and running in a bunch of 5K, 10K, and Half Marathons.
Whoa, it’s midnight and I’m craving a pizza. Need to go to bed since I have to work in the morning. Wonder how many pics I’ll wake up to that I need to delete, and if my chest will be splattered with cheese and sauce this time.
