1. I'm not proud of it (well, maybe I am, just a little), but I yelled "Tread on THIS!" out the window at a woman waving a Tea Party flag and poster in our direction from the median of the road today. I couldn't help it. I was driving my stepfather's Ford F250 with a 12-foot pressure-treated 2x4 hanging off the bed, and I was stressed out and in the middle of a spat with the hubby over his inability to pick out nails by himself. She deserved it, though, and it felt GOOD.
