Hello Again!

Hey there! I know I haven't posted in a while, sorry :( Christmas was good this year. Even though I had a couple moments of freaking out, I want all those who were there to understand that they had nothing to do with it, I'm just really freaking out in my personal life lately. I need a road trip in such a bad way, a proper vacation, and something that involves a single woman and privacy, before I can start to relax even a little bit these days. All three at once would be very nice, and quite dangerous, so I'll take one thing at a time if I can...

I get cable for the first time in a year tomorrow, and I'm super excited about that!!! I'll take some slack for leaving work early, because Comcast is still just a messed up in there scheduling as they have always been. I scheduled it for 4-6 pm. Then I called them to try and change it to between 1-3, and I was told I couldn't. Today I received an automated phone call from them, and the computer told me that the technician was scheduled to arrive between 10 am and 1 pm...?! But hey, whatever, tomorrow is NYE, and I expect that we will be very quiet at Tricomm. Maybe busy at Dominos, but most assuredly not at job 1.

Oh, it's been a while, but GO VDUB!!!! I got the new magazine today (DasAuto), and they had a story about this year's inaugural TDI Cup. Every car in it was a new Clean Diesel TDI, and in a total of 8 races, 150 total laps, and only 2 tanks of diesel per car (stock size tanks at that), they emitted a total of 0, let me repeat that...0 Net Carbon Emissions. I'd like to see NASCAR try to come close to that number. Oh, wait, American cars, even the new ones, barely break the 20 mpg range, even when they aren't driven at 125 mph, never mind... Oh, and get this, the 2009 Jetta TDI gets better mileage creates less pollutants than the new Prius. Eat that for lunch Toyota! And the new Jetta TDI clean diesel costs, oh, about $40,000 less to boot. Put that in your collective pipes and smoke it all you pruis owners! Yes, you read all of that correctly, but feel free to reread this paragraph as many times as you'd like. GO VDUB, Volkswagen rocks my, and everyone else's world!!! Oh, and even though all of our own major car companies have to get billion dollar hand out from the government, VW is building a production plant in Chattanooga, TN. It will be making a brand spanking new VW for the North American market, as well as all the other vehicles that VW gives us. Oh yeah, it'll be creating a several thousand new jobs too. I have never been more proud to be a VW Enthusiast! GO VDUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had meant to post earlier tonight, but for the last couple nights I've been talking with my old friend, Chantelle, so was a little distracted, and now I've forgotten about all the rest of the things I wanted to post about. Stop complaining, I worked 12 hours today, and I'm tired! So I'm going to bed in a little bit. i will try to keep up with my blog a bit more frequently in the new year coming, but I make no promises! Hee hee, goodnight y'all, and sweet dreams to all.

P.S.: Go V-Dub!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
