Sitting In The Truck

Sitting in the truck, waiting for Epes to figure out what to do with me. I don’t have a trailer, so I’m not really in play until they find me one. Obviously I didn’t leave yesterday. I never could get hold of my dispatcher and Epes never called me. I felt bad all day anyway, […]

Looking Forward To A New Week

I’m about to get ready for a new week. I’m heading back out on the road this week, and I’m actually looking forward to it. Somewhat. I haven’t talked to Epes, so I don’t have a load yet. They may not even remember I exist thanks to my being out of the loop last week. […]

Anna Benson

I just came across a new idiot to add to The Watch‘s list of media personalities. This nutjob’s name is Anna Benson, and she loves to spout conservative bullshit. She’s a tits-and-ass poster child who’s married to some jock, and apparently thinks this qualifies her to speak on political issues. Naturally the Conservatives love her, […]

O'Charley's

Mara and I went out to eat tonight. O’Charley’s. When I like to pay a fortune for a decent meal, we go to O’Charley’s. Hehe. I had a great time. As usual I did most of the talking, but Mara seemed to be in a good mood. Two mixed drinks and a beer didn’t hurt […]

The Old Pink Floyd Bullshit

I stumbled across a new David Gilmour track on iTunes (a single from his new solo album, On An Island). I liked it. But, of course, it’s re-awakened some old arguments. As much as I would like to be able to listen to the song on its own merits, I got hung up on the […]

Last Day As A Yard Dog

My last day working as a yard-dog. I’m looking forward to getting back on the road next week. If nothing else, this week has shown me that I’m not cut out for a daily routine anymore. I don’t much care for repeating the same pattern every day. I also lack the social skills (well, the […]

South Dakota Abortion Bill Takes Aim at “Roe”

The war begins. According to an article in the Washington Post by Evelyn Nieves, which I quote almost entirely in the following paragraphs, South Dakota lawmakers yesterday approved the nation’s most far-reaching ban on abortion, setting the stage for new legal challenges that its supporters say they hope lead to an overturning of Roe v. […]

President Bush Denies Knowing What He Was Defending

Okay, so either President Bush is insane or he and his Administration believe that the American people are not just stupid, but have short memories. According to an article in the New York Daily News, President Bush is now saying that he had no clue his administration was signing off on a deal to grant […]

Kind Of Like Yard Work

In spite of myself, I think I kind of like this yard work. I guess if I were to do this every day I would complain every morning, like everyone else. But I really like this 8 hour day stuff. Of course, that constitutes a sizable cut in pay. But it’s been nice to get […]

Pretty Good Truck Driver

Watching all these other OTR drivers come in here and have such trouble getting into these docks (which I have no trouble with) makes me think I might be a pretty good truck driver after all.
