utah

i am tired. but up past my bedtime because i accidentally took a long sunday nap today.

i would just like to say that EVERYONE in utah drives scooters. and if they don't drive a scooter they drive a motorcycle. which is totally fine with me; i fully support the two-wheeled crew [especially if they drive a yamaha]. what i do NOT support is that they do NOT ride safely! tonight we saw a guy on the freeway going 90 mph with NO HELMET. seriously. people are idiots and need to take a motorcycle safety foundation class. we need over-the-ankle boots, a riding jacket, long pants and sleeves, and HELMET. ugh.

end of rant.

also my new job is still fun. but i just hate the getting-used-to period of a new job. i think it takes six months before you're really used to something, so the fact that tomorrow is only day 4 poses a slight problem for me.

BUT, guess what? people in utah take lunch breaks. this is so exciting. i haven't taken a lunch break in a loooong time unless you count running to the post office or going out with my team. mostly i just snacked at my desk throughout the day and never really went outside. in utah you get a whole HOUR and everyone actually leaves. and then, at the end of the day, they go home right at 5 p.m.! this is all sort of a foreign alien wasteland to me, but i think i can get into this stuff.

that is all.

Yahoo for the official lunch break!! Definitely helps to get through the day, eh? And yeah -- Tim and I always groan when we see motorcyclists without helmets. Argh. :-)
