You ever just sit down wanting to write stuff but it just doesn’t want to come out? Yeah… It’s one of them days. Been pretty busy as of late with stuff but lately that’s been the usual with me.
Took a defensive driving course this past Saturday and it was pretty cool. Got to chill with a few of the town’s finest and got to learn a few more things about our retarded state with regards to driving laws. The good part was that 8 hours after it started, I got a certificate to hand off to my insurance company which will knock off $250 from my premium and also get to have 2 points removed from my license which knocks me down to 2 overall. Then next May, those 2 points will come off leaving me with no points and even less to pay in insurance… Le w00t baby! LE W00T!
I also decided I need to volunteer for something in this town because I rather enjoy it here. So, I applied for a spot on the 2006 Community Emergency Response Team for our lovely town. This means after all is said and done, I’d be able to help with various emergencies like fires, kidnappings, natural disasters and yes even terrorist crap. Hooah! I’m actually really looking forward to this and the new things I will learn to keep myself and those around me safe.
My spic ass is also finally going to take some salsa lessons! Yeap, a few of my friends have been to this and they say it kicks some serious ass. So, I figured it’s about time and I signed up for the January series of classes. Besides, with my sis’s wedding around the corner, (hopefully) I will need to be able to dance with her or else look like a retarded schmuck sitting on the sides. It will also give me more of an incentive to hit the gym harder since the word on the street is, these classes are pretty much 20% men (50% of that I hear is also falaaaaamiing) / 80% women or something along those lines.
I’m thinking of taking a cruise to Alaska sometime this year and it looks like I may be leaving from either San Diego or Seattle. Has anyone ever been to Alaska on a cruise? A large part of the reason I chose Alaska is because I want to see the northern lights first hand. That and the place will be nice and chilly which will be a nice break from the warm weather here in Jersey at about the time I will go. So, if any of y’all have been on an Alaskan cruise, I’d like to ask some questions. 🙂
Now to catch up on about 2 weeks worth of my friend’s posts on LJ…
