Puff'n'Stuff (not really, just felt like typing that)

It rained all day today.  Correction, it poured all day.  It got so bad that I almost turned my F150 pick-up around to go back home after lunch, cars were stalling in the flooded streets, some were floating away in the intersections... and that was just my neighborhood!  The highway was even worse.  I was in such a yucky mood I was just looking for disaster and kept on driving.  I saw little Honda's and Grand Am's sailing by and I thought... why not a Ford pick-up?  But just because I wanted it to happen... it didn't.  I kept my traction and sent wakes that washed the smaller stranded vehicles onto the sidewalk.   I'll bet the reason I didn't stall out and float away like the other vehicles on the road was because all of the stranded drivers were watching my big red pickup coming their way and they were probably all praying like crazy 'please Lord don't let that truck float into my car'!  So anyhow their prayers were answered.  They got towed off and got to go home while  I had to keep on going and return to work.

Its rained almost every day for the past 3 weeks.  This is awesome since we've been in a drought for the past 5 years.  This may still not be enough to have any long term effects, but the weeds in my yard are thriving!  We actually had to mow the yard when we got back from California!  Needless to say our weekend camping trip has been cancelled.  Just as well, I'm still trying to recouperate from vacation... and besides, I'm just not in any hurry to jump back into a tent after my last few experiences.  With my luck we'll be camped next to quicksand or poison ivy.

So what will I do this weekend?  I can think of a ton of things I should do, but I'm really not in a 'should' kind of mood.  Its more like a 'shouldn't' type of weekend.  Yeah, thats what I'll do.... everything I shouldn't!  I'm kicking off my goody-2-shoes... (never liked wearing shoes anyhow) and I'm just gonna be bad!  Hmmmm, funny how much trouble I could have gotten into as a teenager and young adult had I ever gotten caught doing some of the 'bad' things I used to do then.  And now that I'm older, 'bad' is eatting a pound of chocolate or putting Tabasco on your eggs for breakfast.  Its using 2 shakes of salt instead of just 1, or reading a romance novel after midnight.  Bad is taking an extra serving of cheesecake when you know everyone else had their eyes on it... its skipping the salad and going straight to the pasta.  Its a double shot instead of a single, 2 scoops instead of just 1.  Yep, neat thing about being a bad adult is most of the time you can't go to jail for it, and if you're really bad, there's always Dornbrau's Miracle Weightloss Program!  So bring it on cos this weekend I'm gonna be Bad to the Bone!
