ast night I decided to have the air conditioning recharged. It seems to have helped a little. By 10am this morning it was already over 100 degrees, but it's noticably cooler in the truck than it was yesterday. Money well spent.

I'm addicted to these frosty little bitches.

So I have a new student. His name is Jim.

This ends a nearly three year phenomena of not having a trainee with the same name. I had another Jim, way back in September of 2005. He already has experience as an OTR driver, but hasn't done it for about a year. In addition to that, he worked for my company very briefly once and is already familiar with the Qualcomm and electronic logging. He only has to do 70 hours and is considered full co-driver status; we're just knocking the rust off before he gets his own truck. Should be a piece of cake.

I made some new icons! One is just a semi-mean little joke... the other is finally giving Sally her moment in the sun as my new truck icon. Isn't she cute! I almost photoshopped a smile underneath her headlamps.

Moo lattes have caramel on the whipped cream? I am missing out. I'm sorry for getting you so addicted to them. Oh, and by the way, next time you visit Dairy Queen, see if they sell cinnamon buns. Because I SWEAR THEY DO, but I went to the one in Frakfort today and they said, "Um, we don't have cinnamon rolls here"...BUT I KNOW THEY DO!! Big liars. Maybe our Dairy Queen just sucks.

I dunno, I've never tried the caramel one. That's just an advertising picture, so of course it looks WAY more awesome than it does in real life.

Cinnamon rolls at Diary Queen? Maybe you're thinking of Arby's? I'll be sure to keep an eye out for these alleged cinnamon buns at DQ, though.

Moo Lattes are the love. I'm needing one. Now I may go bike and treat myself for one. And, I'm surprised, this new student isn't cute like LARM or some of "the others". That's kind of a nice new shock! Nice new icons too. . . I almost rebooted my computer because I thought the icon was frozen at that point.:x

Surprised that he is unattractive? Have you seen truck-drivers? 90% are the ugliest, sloppiest men to walk the earth.

(I got lucky with one of the 10% who aren't)

It depends. I've seen a handful of both. You did grab a good one - not saying he's attractive, you two just make me giggly.

Because you like the metal music, that's all. Oh and you have good humor. But your Welf's. :] And that's good.

I've had 4-5 MooLatte's this week. I would've had more but I was thwarted in two of my attempts to acquire them.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. You should have a DQ in the back of the SEMI! That'd be kickin' (_!_). But yeah, sometimes my DQ doesn't have them but sometimes, they do. Ugh. Like today, when you made me crave 'em they didn't. So I had a lime arctic rush.

I stopped at one DQ in Utah and it was a brand new facility and they were like, training and there were area managers in there pretending to be customers at the counter... but the store wasn't open for business. It sucked. Then just yesterday, I stopped at a DQ and their "misty machine" was broken, which apparently is the slushee portion of the blend, so they offered to make me a coffee milk shake.

It was ok, but it was no MooLatte.

Subliminal messages work - I find myself suddenly wanting you.

YES! Mwuaaaahahahahaha. My fiendish plot is working! Resistance is futile.

Call me? I'm adventuring!

Love the wait for it icon!

Not very long because of your comment. (:

Like 10 minutes... Then refreshed the page because I thought it had frozen... Bastard. =p

He seems to be an alright guy. We're getting along just fine. He does have some of those crude, home-made/prison tattoos on his hands, though.

I'm sorry... they can't all be cute.

*waves hi to Jim*

It's still nice and cool here in PA. You should drop off something here! The NE is so much better than the SW! It was a cool 63 this morning with a forecast of 73 today with sun and no humidity. Yyyeeeeeaaaaahhhh!

I much prefer driving in the SW... a lot less traffic and headache. :)

But Pittsburgh has the 2nd most courteous drivers (and is the 2nd most polluted city behind LA)... What's not to love about the NE?!
