Tinted the windows yesterday. I think my left arm has gotten more of a tan than my right due to not having tinted the windows already.
I'm ready to get out of Houston! I'll be PCS-ing next year hopefully somewhere north (very north). Going to put in for Anchorage, Juneau, Maine, Washington, Buffalo, or anywhere in north michigan or wisconsin. Hopefully I'll get one of those placs.
Coming in to work today there was a brand new Mercedes SL350 in front of me. I don't know much about these cars except they should be pretty quick. He was always taking off like a rocket from each stop light but would get caught usually at the next one. I ended up behind him and decided to see if the Foz could keep up with it's acceleration. To my suprise he couldn't leave me behind at all. Once he saw I was playing keep up behind him he nailed it a bit and still couldn't leave me behind. I'm sure at first he had no clue what was behind him since it was 0545 and still dark outside. Then at the next light i'm sure it pissed him off that a little station wagon/CUV was keeping up with him. Made me smile a bit. (No speed limits were majorly broken here. Just accelerating to about 5+ on the limit. It also wasn't a race. Just seeing if I could hang with the big boys ). I just looked up the SL350 and it's times from the factory are almost identical to what my foz should be at the moment. A pretty even match on the acceleration front, not so even on the classiness, or handling, or comfort or pretty much anything else though. Was a bright red one. Very nice looking.
