richaarde: (Blowup head)

In the days after a snowstorm, I like crushing little leftover bits of snow that the plows didn't quite get near the sides of the road with the wheels of my car.


The building where my new job is had a little lunch counter, where I could get a nice salad for $6. Then the guy running the lunch counter closed it because he opened his own restaurant, and it's taking a while for the next guy to get his permits taken care of. So I'm trying to be good and watch my diet, but so far this week lunch has been Chinese food and pizza. Hopefully the new guy reopens the lunch counter soon.

I left work a little early because I had an appointment with my psychiatrist, and got stuck in horrible traffic on the way there. I called in to the office and asked if I should still come in or reschedule (I would have been about 15 minutes late for the appointment). The lady at the counter checked with the doctor, and said to reschedule. Oh well. Next time I'll have to give myself more time to get there. At least they said they would refill my pills if I needed them.

My brother and his soon-to-be wife will be flying back to NJ in June, so I'm giving myself until then to whip my apartment into some semblance of cleanliness. I keep putting it off, and this kind of gives me a reason to actually get it done.

When I worked up there, there was a great little Greek-owned place on Littleton Rd that was like a diner that specialized in chili dogs. I did not eat chili dogs everyday, but there was a great waitress at lunchtime who took good care of me (and vice versa).

Sadly it later became a (bad) Italian place and has since been demolished.

Did you see the thing going round where if your car suddenly sounds like it needs an alignment, it's because you have a clod of ice frozen to the tires?

There are a bunch of places to eat on Parsippany Rd, between Littleton Rd and I-287. One of the three pizza places actually makes excellent salads, but I'm getting a little tired of going to the same place every day.

I did see that article. I did have that problem the day after the snowstorm. Enough ice froze onto one side of my rims that it temporarily threw my wheels way off balance. My car was vibrating badly while I was driving to work. (Lucky for me, I know enough about cars that I figured that was the problem). Later, the ice melted off, and everything was back to normal.
