This is something I never thought about before but the roads down here in Florida are so smooth compared to back home in CT. I was up in CT in January and its only now that I actually appreciate how nice and smooth all the roads are down here. There are exceptions of course but at least it doesn’t feel like I’m riding a jack hammer while I’m cruising in my car going to work. Tomorrow is another day of work, absolutely dreading it!
I’m down here in South Florida and I had to take my wife to a job interview in Miami. My wife’s sisters live in Weston so its a bit of a drive to get there (30 minutes without traffic). After the interview we had to drive back on I-95. Now driving 95 really took me back because no matter where you are, I-95 is always the same. Lots of traffic, multiple accidents, and just people driving badly in general. I had the nostalgic feeling for all of 10 minutes until I started getting pissed because it took an hour and a half to get home……………. so much for nostalgia 😛
This morning I was not a happy camper. I was STUCK behind a truck and couldn’t get around it. The two other lanes had some weak drivers that were keeping pace with the truck for some odd reason which backed everything up. Regardless, my ass was late to work! BOOOO!!!
Most people consider a good week at work being a week full of nothing to do. Mine is going to be full of meetings but thats not whats going to make it a good week. First thing, I’m going to take Friday off to see the in-laws in South Florida which should be fun. I still don’t like leaving my cats alone for days at a time but I don’t think I’ll be leaving them alone for days at time much after this trip until the summer time. Second, and most importantly, its going to be jeans week at work and I’ll be able to wear my favorite jersey at work too! That means I get to break out the NY Yankee jersey’s that I have in my closet. WHOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man I love my job sometimes 🙂
I’ve started playing the only game I ignored when I got my Xbox 360 and thats Kameo: Elements of Power. I’m taking a break from Project Gotham Racing (I hate running my car through cones), and Perfect Dark Zero (you can only stand getting killed in 10 seconds so many times and by the computer no less) for the time being and I’m concentrating on this game. Suprisingly this is one of the more fun games that I’ve had. The only thing thats kind of a drag is that you have to search around for stuff and the controls are a little off when you’re trying to whoop ass.
The graphics are freakin awesome and I love the funny animations that are included. Maybe I’ll be lucky and this will turn out to be a long game although I hear that it should take a gamer about 10 hours to complete. I like to take my time with games so normally it takes me twice as long as a normal person since I like sniffing around for goodies in the game. Now I wonder what game to get next…………………. I’m thinking maybe a PC game (I haven’t done that in a long time) called Star Wars: Empire at War!
