I Hate Driving

Well, no, actually I love driving.  I just hate driving in wind storms.  You see, I drive a Chevy Tracker, which is basically the smallest, cutest little SUV ever.  But, it’s wicked light and fairly tall, so the wind catches it like a sail and pushes me across the road.  I was almost late for class yesterday because I had to go 55 so I didn’t run into anyone.  This is my car (her name is Sadie):

In the summer it’s wonderful because of the soft top and the roof that folds back, but I’m scared about driving in the winter, when the roads are slicked with ice.  I’ve only had her a few months, and so far I’ve loved her, but yesterday was kind of scary.

I Just Realized Something Awful…

September 28, 2009 at 4:56 pm (Health)

I just realized something awful.  I have mild acid reflux, so I generally stay away from citric fruits and spicy foods, but I just glanced at my coffee cup (which happens to be holding my third serving of coffee for today) and it popped into my head that coffee is acidic.  So I went and looked up coffee + acid reflux and to my horror and dismay, coffee aggravates the symptoms of acid reflux!  I drink an ungodly amount of coffee on a daily basis, so this is really awful news for me.  I also drink quite a bit of tea, maybe two cups a day, usually before bedtime, and THIS IS BAD TOO! T_T  Maybe I’ll just start living off Tums or something, I don’t think I can give up my tea and coffee.  It’s like a security blanket, if I don’t have a mug in my hand I feel naked and alone.
