Florida Rant

Ok Florida, I have serious beef with you.

I have put up with your extreme summer heat and now with your crazy cold spells. I have smiled while you reach into my pocketbook with your incessant toll roads every time I get behind the wheel. I have supported your Publix grocery store monopoly and lack of In n Outs. But I just can't stand for this.

Learn how to drive. Seriously, take a moment and research the concepts "merging" and "blinker" and I promise you, your ridiculous insurance rates will plummet substantially. I am just baffled by it. Do you think I want to practically run you or me off of the road because I just WANT to be in your lane? I probably need to either exit OR not exit. I'm not trying to take away your special lane, you can have it back in t-minus 4 seconds, just let me get over!

When my cousin Rachel came to visit she borrowed the car for a few hours (really, only a FEW HOURS) and when we saw her again the first thing she said was: "is it just me, or is Florida full of the worst drivers ever?" Its like a near-blind 75 year old taught the entire state to drive.

Get it together, Florida.

Whew, now that THAT is out of my system.... I'm pretty sure we need to improve the mood around here with some Christmasy sunshine music. Thank you ever so much Dean-o and Franky. You make the world right again.

And just for you, some pics of J and I at the downtown Lake Eola Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony from a few weeks back.

Christmas trees AND palm trees?! Ok Florida, I guess you do have some redeeming qualities.

Have a super duper day!

Only 9 days to go until Christmas!!! Ahhhhh!!!
