Dear Hurricane Irene,

Please drop something on my car, because insurance will give me more than a trade-in.

Thanks!
Bane.

a brief reprieve from the rain. The general wind seems less, but the gusts are relatively stronger.

I think I've realized that my problem with lumbar may be, in part, that the way I sit in a car is wrong. My posture is rather poor, so I tend to lean forwards when I sit, almost curving forwards, which fights the seat. That should be adjustable.

G35x would need to go to an Infiniti dealership for a mechanical inspection, and then get detailed to clean it up properly.

stolen joke

I finally got around to going fishing this morning - but after a while,
I ran out of worms. Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth,
and frogs are good bass bait.

Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed
him right behind the head, took the frog and put it in my bait bucket.
Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bitten - I
grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its
mouth. His eyes rolled back, he went limp! I released him into the lake
without incident and carried on with my fishing, using the frog as bait.

A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot.. There was that damn snake
with two frogs in his mouth!
