Traffic - ack!
Topic: My boring life
Why is it that the person behind you in extremely crowded conditions has to be so hard on your bumper that you can't see their headlights? Especially when all you can see for a mile or more is a sea of taillights? I swear, people are driving worse and with more anger than ever. ARGH!

Well, life is strange
Mood:  rushed
Topic: My boring life
The night after my last entry, I was in a wreck. No one was hurt, but my truck was totaled. After the long process of the insurance claim (which, due to who my insurance company is was pretty painless), it was decided that I needed to get a new truck.

Now, some people might holler at this, but I chose another Ford Ranger. It's blue. Sonic Blue. Looks kinda purple at times. She's sweet, lots of pep. Only my third vehicle in nearly 16 years - I tend to keep them for 150-200K miles. Anyway, my friends all razzed me for not buying a Toyota or Nissan, but look at it this way: Ford asked Melissa Etheridge to compose a song for their sponsorship of the Susan Koman Race for the Cure. Read more about it at http://www.fordvehicles.com/thecause/index.asp.

That's all for now.

Life is fairly okay
Topic: My boring life
Went to see "Serenity" with a buddy of mine, pretty good movie. I decided to look for some clothes later (friend's wedding coming up) but everything was either too big or too small. Any pants that were close to the right waist were waaaaay too long AND didn't have pockets. Bleah. Pockets are a necessity!

Anyway, the muses are playing tricks on me, I'll get good story ideas or scenes while I'm at work, or driving, or some place inappropriate, then when I have a bit of time, poof!

It's enough to drive a person insane.

Oh, Symantec replied. They're supposed to refund my money. I'll completely believe it when I see it in my account.

Not really Xena or fiction related...

Topic: My boring life
I've been biking after work for almost five months now, but have become increasingly frustrated by the lack of cycling clothes in the stores for larger women. I walk into a store, and find that a "large" or "extra-large" is what used to be a "medium" or "large". I was in my local REI the other day and noticed that depending on the brand, that XL cycling shorts seemed to be somewhere between a 14 and 18.

I want to be healthy, I want to keep pushing, but it's not fun with just three pair of shorts - and one pair is getting pretty old. I keep seeing news stories about how obese Americans are getting, but if we can't buy the proper clothing to DO SOMETHING about it, it's extremely easy to just give up and crawl back on the couch with a bag of chips and a remote control or laptop.

Grrr.
