corralary to previous observations about traffic: if you are already running late, you will have to wait for a very long train.

there were four kids riding one of the boxcars, feet swinging off the edge, big smiles on their faces, waving at the cars. well, not really kids - 17, 18 maybe. i waved back at them, and sat in my car waiting for the train to end. i envied them their freedom, and wondered where they were headed. i wondered if i was doing the right thing in going to work, and if they might not be better off.

then the train ended, and i put the car back into gear and came to work, cussing all the way because i was running late.

can someone name a state (besides Texas =p) where there are mild winters (no snow, and decent temperatures, like above 50) and they actually experience thunderstorms more than once every six months? inquiring minds want to know. =)

quick and dirty tortellini with cream sauce:

- start some water boiling
- find the tortellini in the freezer. if you're being anal about what you're eating, measure out a serving
- when the water is boiling, dump in the tortellini
- open an 8 oz can of tomato sauce
- fish out a tortellini on occasion. peer speculatively at it. when you decide it's done/when you become impatient, drain the pasta
- dump it into a bowl/plate/something. the bowl is more effective, as you will see in a second....
- pour tomato sauce to taste in with the pasta. stir. glop in some (low fat) cream cheese. note... sticking to veggie or garlic cream cheese would probably be a good idea. stir to melt. spice to taste. slice in some garlic if you're the kind to keep it around.
