speed limits
Monday. 7.26.10 5:47 pm
I was going to write this yesterday, but I forgot.

I can understand the concept of speed limits and why they're there, but sometimes the posted speed limit is a little too limited. I mean, seriously? Why would you want to drive only 35mph down a 6 lane wide street? Hell, I've seen 4 lane wide streets with the posted speed limit at 50mph.

High way speed limits I can also sort of understand. When you're driving through a city where there's more traffic and is more populated, then yes, the slower speed limit is necessary. But driving down a highway where the posted speed limit is only 55mph is absolutely ridiculous. I'm even uncomfortable with the 65mph speed limit on the highways I use to drive home. They should be at least 70mph. Most people drive that fast anyway.

On average I drive about 5 miles per hour over whatever the posted limit is. On the highway, I'm driving an average of about 10 miles per hour over. About the only time I drive exactly the speed limit is if I'm in a school zone or if traffic won't allow for a faster commute. Even if a cop is behind me, I'm still going at least a few miles per hour over the posted limit.

Night time is when I drive a little faster. On the highway I tend to get up to about 15mph over. So in this case driving to work, I'm usually doing anywhere between 75 and 80mph. Every once in a while there'll be a cop and I'll slow to 70, but otherwise, with no cars on the road, I see no reason to drive so fricken slow.

I hate the idiots that want to drive "safely" and drive 5 to 10 miles under the speed limit. Which on the highway, isn't exactly safe. Especially if driving 70+ is keeping up with traffic. I also hate the people who purchase fast cars {IE: corvettes, Z4's, Porche Boxters, etc} and then drive under the speed limit. Seriously!? If you're going to spend the extra money to buy a sports car with a high horse power, then FUCKING USE IT. I'm not saying become everyone's living nightmare/a speed demon on the road. I'm just saying use the car for what it's supposed to be used for. A car that's meant to drive at higher speeds. Not 55mph on a highway where the posted speed is 65. Ugh!

Anywho, I just wanted to rant about that. I'm off to read "2nd Chance" by James Patterson. I've only read "1st to Die" and maybe 10 chapters of "2nd Chance," but I'm already looking forward to reading the other 7 books. If you like murder mystery novels, definitely check out James Patterson's work. You'll get hooked right away.

Until next time NuTang ...

thanks guys

Thanks to those of you who commented on my prior entry. I greatly appreciate the feedback.

I've decided that I'm going to just keep the entries that I have. Hey, maybe one day I'll make it to 1000. It might even be this year. I've only got a little under 100 to write. I think that if I write one entry every few days, I'll be able to make 1000 before the New Year. We'll see what happens.

Hope everyone is doing well.

question for the regulars ...
Tuesday. 7.13.10 7:27 pm
Including this one, I am now up to 908 posts and that's after deleting some a couple years ago.

I've already deleted nearly every post from when I first started this website due to the fact that I was finally ready to completely let go of what my ex had done to me and that's what most of the early/beginning entries were about.

I'm considering deleting some more of them; mostly the posts from '06 and earlier, but I'm not sure if I should delete some of the later ones as well. Most of them aren't bad. Just me bitching about work.

My question to all of you is this: in your opinion how long should I keep up certain posts? How long would you wait before deleting stuff from the past?

It might not happen for a while, but for right now I just want opinions and suggestions on what everyone would do in this current situation.

strange feeling
Wednesday. 7.7.10 2:26 am
Every time I wash my hands, I walk away feeling as if I'm forgetting to put something back on. Like a ring or bracelet.

It's weird because I don't wear either piece of jewelry, yet every single time I wash my hands, I get that feeling.

I wonder why ...

burnt to a crisp
Saturday. 7.3.10 4:30 pm
Although today's hike/climb was a definite good one, I am paying the price. I can understand my face and legs being burned like they are because I didn't put any cun block on them. My face I avoided because I don't like the slimey feeling it gives me. And my legs I just didn't think about putting any on. My arms and shoulders, however, should not be burned just as badly, yet they are. I put frickin SPF 50 on my shoulders, chest and arms and they're still burned just as much as the parts that I didn't put anything on. It doesn't make sense. Next time I go out there, I'm either going to have to seriously layer that stuff on or I'm going to have to purchase SPF 100 or something. It's absolutely ridiculous that I'm so white even using decently strong sun block doesn't work.

Needless to say I'll be applying quite a bit of Aloe Vera over the next few days, at least. And I'll be doing my best to avoid the sun and heat unless absolutely necessary.

I also had a little mishap on the side of the mountain today. I guess I got my legs a little too far apart and when I went to move again, I slipped on some loose rocks and fell flat on my stomach. My hand happened to land on a cactus though. Just a small one, but about 10 prickers came out in my hand when I managed to get back up. One particular one went completely through the small web of skin between my middle and ring fingers. It'll probably bruise. You can still see some of the spots where I was punctured. My hand will probably be sore for a couple days, but then I should be fine.

Alrighty, I just wanted to write about the fact that I'm so white SPF 50 doesn't work on my skin. And my falling mishap. I'm not sure when I'll write again. Hopefully soon. Everyone have a safe Fourth of July!!!

with me ... without me
Sunday. 6.27.10 5:25 pm
Knight and Day was a funny movie. So was Grown Ups. Over all it was a good weekend. I'm definitely not looking forward to having to go back to work, though. But it's necessary.

This weekend consisted of hanging out, watching shows on Hulu, going to see Knight and Day and Grown Ups, watching the movie The Road, getting my car washed and hiking. I got some much needed sleep. His bed really is more comfortable than the futon mattress I have on the floor. It has springs in it so at least it's more like a normal mattress than just the foam pad that usually comes with futons, but still. He has an actual bed.

Next weekend will be even nicer. I've got Monday off so it'll be a three day weekend. I plan on spending Friday, Saturday and Sunday night over at his house. I might or might not come back home. If I do come back home it'll be Sunday while he's at work so that I can get laundry done. This way I won't have to worry about it Monday. But who knows. That's still a whole week away.

I still have yet to break in my bathing suit... the one that I bought months ago. This coming weekend, though, it will be used. Whether to go swimming or to just sit in the hot tub, it will be used.

Anywho, I just wanted to give a quick update. Until next time ...
