First snow 2008

Well it has finally hit New Jersey, yes snow. It started on Friday and kept going all through the weekend. There were many periods of rain so we did not get all that much on the ground. But with the rain came the other fun thing, Ice and assholes. Whenever bad weather hits people become instant idiots, their ability to reason just seem to fly off like a huge chunk of ice off a speeding car's roof top that an inconsiderate driver did not feel like cleaning off before hitting the highway. FYI asshole, that large chuck of ice can and does cause accidents from other idiots that freak when it hits their car.


Here is a picture I took from the front steps of my job. Doesn't everything look so clean when covered in snow......notice I said 'looks'




As the snow and ice kept piling up so did the fun. This was the last weekend before the holiday so we braved the weather and went shopping. My ex was concerned that I was going to get our son an air soft gun, don't worry about that dear....I did. A nice one too, it shots .12 bb's at 315 fps (feet per second)! It will be staying at our house so it really is both of ours lol. I wonder if she will ever find my blog and if she does I wonder if she will ever say anything about it?

On Saturday we went to the Woodbridge mall, no biggie had fun people watching and eating at Charlie Browns.

On Sunday I went to Trash Gardens Elizabeth mall with mini-me. The wife took the other one so it was just me and the baby. I had the double stroller so I had no problems. He was strapped in at the front and all my bags were in the back. Anyone with kids should get a double stroller, even if you only have one! We wandered around and did our thing and had lunch at Chile's (Sp). He did not screech too much and was over all a good boy. But every time I went into a store he would start up his bitching. He was find while we were walking around but the moment I started toward a store he would start up, no one can say he is gay...but....he does seem to have a thing for shoes....hmmmmm

Now during all of this running around and bad weather I did have a minor car issue. While trying to park my low riding Matrix in front of my house I had to ride up on a small snow embankment. And in doing so I hit a huge ball of ice. It cracked the bottom part of my bumper and knocked almost all of the plastic screws holding the bottom engine shield off. I am not sure what this thing is really for but if Toyota put it there, it has a purpose, so I had to jack up the car and lay down in freezing weather to fix it. Now I do not have the proper tools to fix it so I did my best with a bunch of zip-ties and you know what? It worked! I am not saying I was able to fix the cracked bumper, that can wait because fiber glass wont rust, or that there isn't a chance or it just falling off but for now at least it wont make that horrible scarping noise!

Also on Sunday I found this tent we have had since last summer that my mom gave the kids. I thought it would be fun to let them play in it for a moment, but now I am curious as to where I am going to keep it? Our apartment is slowly filling up to the brim with STUFF!




Today is Monday and guess what was here to greet me? More FOOD! I swear I am going to look like Dom Deluise by the time the summer hits!

I'm getting large myself! Or so it feels at least, I've only put on like a pound or two so far for the season. Tis the season to gain weight! I need to go for a walk, but it's 15 degrees outside!

Ice sucks...you get a ticket here if you don't clean off your car. Sucks...It was COOLD here yesterday too...we need to speed up this whole global warming thing STAT! I don't like cold!

SWEET! Air soft guns are amazing!! I say you get two...

Love the tent...very indian of you!

Using zipties on your car is what us southerners call "Southern Engineering". Ducttape or zipties pretty mych make everything fall into that category!

I loved that tent. My kids are too big for it though.

We rarely get any snow here in South Texas. Maybe we'll be lucky and get some this year. Then again, maybe it's not such a good idea. These crazy people here used to the tropical weather would definitely freak and crash into the palm trees.

Finding: I pitch a mean tent!

becky: the cold it gets the faster you walk!

Sav: zip ties, tents and air soft cannt get anymore redneck!

Sheila: There was snow in LA so there may be hope yet.

Doesn't it seem like the asshole ratio rises severely in the winter? Makes you want to stick flamethrowers on the front of your truck/car. And NOT to melt the snow and ice.
