With a snowstorm hitting the area pretty hard, we were discussing the road conditions. This can be particularly important since I need to drive [ profile] tarrestrial home. Luckily most of the drive is along the Interstate and that's usually pretty good. We were wondering if we should leave early or around our usual time. We finally decided that if we wait a bit, the odds are better that the roads would be plowed and possibly even the salt trucks would have been out. I then suggested that perhaps even the "pepper" trucks would have been out, just to add a little extra flavor to the streets. [ profile] tarrestrial and [ profile] bookwurm then bit me for some reason. After that, [ profile] tarrestrial went on to observe that the trucks could even have little signs with "Season(ings) Greetings!" on them.

Yes, we then bit her too.

Now we're just waiting for a good excuse to bite [ profile] bookwurm.

I'm going to blame [ profile] ericcoleman for this, although to be honest we can blame Eric for so much already.

First the boys take on Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. (Eric posted this one in his LJ, so some of you may have already seen this one.)

After that finished, [ profile] bookwurm and I saw this one and ... well, now we need to order some CDs from these guys: Alien Abduction Probe video

On our way down to Champaign-Urbana on Saturday, [ profile] bookwurm and I stopped to refill my coffee supply. When we got out of the car, she noticed the special food on offer from the Duncan Donuts. I declined to ask about this special as the poor girl on duty was already having trouble dealing with us. I suspect if I worked at a Duncan Donuts in a gas station in a small town suburb of Kankakee, I'd want to shut off my brain too.

I'll often take these and not post the results, but some of these were very funny for personal reasons, particularly [ profile] rileybear67 and her interaction with [ profile] merseine0613. Obviously I need to keep you two out of the kitchen for a while.

Honestly, I don't know what's wrong with some guys. If you're going to wear a utilikilt then don't run away when some lass comes up to you with a leafblower!

And lass? You don't need the leafblower, you just have to ask!

Appropriate to the day, one of the first vehicles I drove at work today was a 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Hearse. Even stranger, I drove this particular car about two weeks ago at the Burlington station when the current owner was considering buying it from the previous owner. I knew right away it was the same car, I mean how many of these things can there be around here? The new owner -- the owner of a magic shop here in Kenosha -- was very pleased to find the car passed the required tests. Of course the best part was the looks from the other customers in the next booth; I swear I think they thought we were doing it just because today was Halloween.

Other work related comments:

I'm so glad that the car from the monestary passed. I'm not even remotely Catholic, but I really didn't want to have to tell a nun (in full kit ... er ... whatever the heck you call that getup) that her car failed the test!

Finally, why is it that the owners of the crappiest cars wait until the very last day they can to have their cars tested then complain when they have to wait a while in line ... because everyone ahead of them also have crappy cars. No, it's not actually true -- most of the vehicles today were just fine, but I really had some "interesting" ones today; interesting in that step on the gas and listen to the engine do a bad samba sort of way, of course ...
