saginasty

So my dad calls me last week and asks me to drive up and help him move to Colorado. Not a bad deal, I have to pack him up and drive his car, while he drives a uhaul. His car has no radio or clock.

There is a big sticker on the window that says "Radio does not work if removed from car".... Some smart guy removed it. Jagoff.

Saginaw is like flordia. Its hot, smells bad and is a flat grid. People ride crappy bikes to the liquor stores. I met a kid at a race in ohio from near here. I said "my dad lives in Saginaw" he said "Saginasty." He was pretty right on I guess.

On the upside of my dad being transfered to Colorado is that I will get to ride in Fort Collins for a few days when we finally get there. The drive across Nebraska will make me appreciate it more.

Ohio turnpike: There are very few "emergencey pull off" spots compared to PA. Anybody who has travelled with me knows how that is a bad thing. I drank 2 liters of water on the trip up and was DYING.

Blue Moon last night: A blue moon is when there are 2 full moons in one calandar month. Rare.

This song was already in my head. I do not know why. Since you have no radio, might was well sing this puppy over and over again...
