Some Points:

I'm tired and vaguely hungover from my dinner last night at the Over-hyped and under-delivering "Food Gang" in Surfside.

Note to restaurants: This whole "sweet steak" trend - it's terrible. I don't want my meat sweet. I want it beat savory. Enough with the sweet shortrib ragout with wild mushrooms under my hunk of beef. Take a lesson from the Capital Grille (Which is turning into one of my favorite restaurants here because it's just consistently good... and how depressing is that?! That my favorite restaurant down here is a chain?!)

Anyhoo. Here are some crumbs for you hens to peck:

Driving tip: When on the highway in heavy traffic, count your lucky stars if an emergency vehicle comes up behind you! After the vehicle has passed, scootch in behind it and tailgate it! Ride the parting of the Red Sea behind the Ambulance or State Trooper! You'll shave minutes off your commute! YAY!

On that same note: Hey assholes who leave like ten car-lengths between them and the car in front of them - Stop being an asshole. Close the gap, and get traffic inching forward, you bastard.

Other note: When you're courteous and you let someone in front of you, say, at a stopsign, while you're in line waiting for a light to change, you probably think you've done a nice thing by letting that person in, don't you?

Well, here's my take on that: You've done a mean thing to the fifteen cars BEHIND YOU, who are now DEFINITELY NOT going to make that light, because you keep letting cars in front of you. It's a competition out there. Close the gap. Don't let them in. Because you're doing twelve bad things while doing one good thing.

Eh, that's really all I've got right now. I'm tired, but I have to do a lil' exercise, as I've been off the diet the last few days and now I'm wracked with shame and guilt. I'm probably back up to 150 lbs again. The horror...
