>Endless Summer

5 September 2007

>Do you know how many posts I write while driving? I would say that about 75% of my non-recap related posts are started while driving in rush hour traffic. There are also quite a few posts that I write in my car that don’t make it onto the site because I forget about them, or get a better idea, or they are boring (more boring than normal, I mean), or I’m too busy stuffing my face, or whatever. Anyway, composing posts while driving is very theraputic with me. It helps me deal with the BLINDING RAGE I feel toward other drivers. I have to do something when commercials are on the radio and I can’t rock out to Toto’s “Africa.”

So, today I had a little driving experience that I guess, in a Six Degrees of Separation sort of way, is relevant to this site. (God, I am really stretching it here, but I can’t neglect my five readers! I love you guys! And I can list you: LGM, WinTwins, Goon, Donald, and FHG. NOTE THAT I CAN’T EVEN COUNT ON MY FREAKING PARENTS TO READ THIS THING. Why do I even bother? *******SHAMELESS PLEA FOR VALIDATION**********) I was trying to get somewhere, and some jerks would not let me merge off of 94E at my exit, and then I barely made it to the next exit, and then I was in on the UMTC campus, and NO ONE THERE CAN DRIVE WORTH CRAP. Seriously. And people also suck at walking. And parallel parking. I should seriously drive a tank, because then if I want to merge, I will just put my blinker on and people will move, or else I will just run over them. And I will also run over pedestrians and parallel parkers.

Moral of the story: Gopher fans suck in all forms of traffic.

Seriously, when is hockey going to start? I am lonesome for it. Some radio station was giving away Wild tix for some time this month, so there’s hope, but seriously. I MISS HOCKEY. I also miss the cool weather that comes along with hockey, because my fab car overheats when I get stuck in traffic, so while I was creeping through Dinkytown, I was blasting my heater and swearing at people. I need the weather to cool down about 10 degrees so when I go for a run, it doesn’t feel like a freaking Death March. I also miss hockey-related news. Nothing is going on. I guess tDECC is getting a new floor, which will make for some better ice. This is fab, since our ice usually has the consistency of an Icee, without being as tasty. Also, Ciskie has started updating his old blog, but I am not going to change the link until A.) he informs me it’s a permanent change and B.) he quits writing conference previews for college football. Ugggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggh. But, because I am nice (yeah, right), I am linking.

Okay, enough of this. I’ve lost steam. Goodnight, all.

    >Sadly, I was thinking about hockey today and getting excited as well. I say sadly, because I was AT THE FREAKING TWINS GAME at the time. Ugh!! But, I’m trying to be nicer about the team, so I’ll leave it at I’m excited for hockey to start too! 🙂

    >I was wondering where you were. In fact, I was singing “Where have you gone, Redwing77, RWD turns her lonely eyes to you, woo woo woo.”
