Ummm... not much here...

A few thoughts...

Wow, it's going to be hot today. Miraculously, I remembered to take out the garbage this morning after forgetting last night even though I reminded myself 40 times. In doing so, I realized that it was already starting to get hot. That was 8 a.m.

If you have a Jeep you are part of a fraternity. If that Jeep is a Cherokee and not a Wrangler, you are part of the group, but in an annoying little sister sort of way. An old, ratty CJ trumps everything, especially if it's dirty. Old CJs are like a cazy uncle who disappears from time to time to search for lost treasures in the jungles of Central America. I have a Cherokee... sigh.

It's a rest day at the Tour de France... whatever shall I do for TV entertainment?

"Have a good night," in Czech sounds a lot like "da brown nuts." I learned that in Green Bay on Friday.

My birthday wish was that I would hear from some old friends. I got my wish and I didn't even have to blow out any candles to get it. It's awesome to hear from old friends...

I got "tagged" a long time ago and I still haven't answered the questions... ooops...

I used to want a Jeep, but having kids scared me off. Then I realized what I really wanted was open air driving, so I got a convertible. Now I get sunburnt a lot.

Ha! Jason, that was funny. Try a moonroof or a sunroof. You get the breeze without too much exposure. My husband wanted a Jeep too. It was this church we were going to. All the men had the old Jeeps and they would go 4-bying all the time.
Now we go to the church of the IMac; computer geeks here!

How is Green Bay? I'm a die-hard Packer fan and have never stepped foot in that town.

I have a Jeep, but it is a Liberty Sport (red). I bet that's a completely different group, isn't it? Men probably think Libertys are gay.

Jason - If you lived in Wisconsin and you had a convertible, you would keep the top up all the time even if it was nice out. There seems to be some sort of rule about only putting the tops down the weekend.

ZS - You know you're in an alternate reality when you get off the freeway and turn on to Holmgren Way. You think that's as whacked as it gets until you remember that if you keep going you'll hit Lombardi Ave where you will find Lambeau Field...

Jo-Anne - I like the way Libertys look, but I've never driven one. If I had one, I don't think I would want to get it dirty. The way to tell if you're in the club though is to see if you get any Jeep waves from other Jeep drivers... it's just a flick of a few fingers actually.

Shawn, you have a functional car now? Clearly, we need to stay in better touch.

Herr Jizz -- Ja, mein Auto ist nich kaputt, aber es ist immer noch ein hasslich Jeep. Ich habe die Photos von die Kabine gesehen. Hast du ein gutes Zeit? Du kann hier gesehen dass ich bin der Deutsch studiere... aber, "Ein voller Bauch studiert nich gern."

I never got a drunken phone call by the way...

I know. Es tut uns leid. I think that's right. Anyway, we are cocks, and we apologize for not calling you while we were in our cups. I offer no excuse, and simply through myself at your feet, begging clemency. (Wow, that smell ... is that your feet? OK, I'm standing up again.)

All right. I need to go. I should start a pilgrimage to Green Bay fund with this new job.

I'm just amazed that somebody is oh-so intrigued by Green Bay, affectionately known as Green Blah among my circle of friends...

I wanted a Jeep Wrangler for a LONG time. Still do, actually. Someday, maybe.

Happy birthday!!!!!!!!!!
