Been awhile..........

It's been a long time since I posted anything to this blog. I'd like to be a more avid blogger, even if it's just about mundane things. At least give some evidence that I've done something, even if was boring. Sometimes writing a journal is more about the act of writing and less about the subject, at least it is for me. It's an opportunity for me to improve my writing skills.

I've always wanted to be a writer, but never really followed through on that goal, so I guess it's really just a dream. It's sad when life gets in the way of dreams. But this is the blog of a "lucid daydreamer" and there never seems to be enough hours in the day. On that note, onto my day.

Today, I stayed an additional four hours at work and got off at eleven. I worked the additional hours with another guy named Ray monitoring the flow of Redd's Apple Ale to packaging and sanitizing empty tanks.

On my ride home, it was really windy. My right eye started tearing up really badly just before the Moorland Rd exit. I thought it would clear up, but by the time I hit Waukesha, it was severely affecting my vision. I got off the expressway and thought I'd sit in the parking lot at the Farm and Fleet until my vision cleared. But then I remembered that Sonic is just up the road and they have picnic tables. While I'm there, I might as well enjoy a chili cheese dog. As if I need an excuse to enjoy a chili cheese dog, but this is my story, so bear with it and save your criticism for your own blog!

I find the chili chees dogs at Sonic are good, but the buns on them get a little soggy. I think that's because of the foil wrapper they put them in. I wish they would just use a plain brown bag to put them it, similar to the ones Burger King uses. They absorb moisture and therefore the bun doesn't soak up as much. I also ordered the boneless hot wings. That was a mistake. I'm not a fan of anything boneless. I can tolerate them, but the flavor and mouth feel isn't the same as traditional wings. Another disappointing thing about Sonic's boneless buffalo wings, is that they're basically just breaded chicken nuggets dipped in buffalo sauce. I think that's nasty. I won't order those again. I really think the only good thing at Sonic, are it's drinks.

I went to bed about two in the afternoon and slept until eight. Woke up once after having a terrible dream. I was driving behind a motorcyclist who was adjacent to a truck, lost control and slid under and got mangled by the truck. That must be my subconscious dealing with my fears of loosing control on the expressway earlier today in that wind and subsequent vision issue. Still, scary dream.
