    I've gone to several surf spots in the last couple days, there are no waves anywhere right now.

    for years I had an awesome winning streak going, when I would leave town in summer you'd get the massive 100-degree, 99% humidity heat wave. When I left in winter, you'd get the massive transit grid crushing blizzards.

    But lately I have had to suffer them all. :(

    Roads all over the Northeast are in shitty condition. Ever drive through Vermont? Those roads will destroy your car.

    Speaking of roads, there's another reason for me to move to CA. My 1989 560SL would glide down the freeways, and it would be rust-free.*

    *My hypothetical 560SL, that is.

    Can you skip down during finals week this semester? That'd be right around Christmas time. [​IMG]

    ...actually, please don't. I'd nearly forgotten what happened the last time finals for held up because of the weather. :\

    This implies that you would be happy with someone in the lead. Given the field, that is an untenable position. The race is comprised only of lightweights, loons and looters. With luck, the world will end before any of them are put in charge of anything.

    I do wonder why NYC can't find better candidates for the top spot. I confess that I'm not up on the detailed resumes of all of them, but they all seem kinda meh. Or they're Anthony Weiner.

    I would take some amount of pleasure in watching a press conference in which Quinn submits in defeat to Weiner.

    If Quinn wins I might blow my brains out.
