Leaving California--See ye in a week



Partially due to the fact that Gov. Kill 'em All wants to pay college professors less than the state's minimum wage, I took a job in Tallahassee, Florida (go Noles!)... I am leaving in the morning, and all that stands in front of me, my wife, my dog, and my cat, are 6 red states and gas I can't afford! Having lived in Mass and Cali, I am glad my vote will be more useful this year, assuming its counted and that my Obama sticker doesn't get me arrested in Texas.

Anyhow--Bradda, Kreplech, Dick, et al will do a great job holding down the fort. So I'll be back on Tuesday. Till then...
PS- WTF is up with this Manny shit?!?!?!?!?

Completely across country? That's a lot of gas. I hope you're ready for some truly odd jobs to complete the journey. Good luck!

Sal, Is this the first year you've rooted for the Red Sox? He asks for a trade every year!

kreplech said...

looks like its a little different this year, bradda...

Bradda said...

Hey torrance, Welcome mate, thanks for coming by. Your site rules man and we have added you to our L.E.

safe trip....

i guess you cant drive around red states

Sal Kilmister said...

Thanks all. I forgot how much I hate Arizona in the summer. I have not seen a single Obama or McCain sticker in over 500 miles. I also noticed that red state people love American cars.

I also learned that my wife won't touch motel shower curtains but will flood motel bathrooms.

Tomorrow at this time I will be in Texas. If I have WiFi, I will post. If you don't hear from me in a few days, assume the bastards got me and that I'm on death row on charges of literacy...

I'm very disappointed Sal. I remember when you swore never to set foot in Texas. The old Sal woulda driven through New Mexico, up to Oklahoma and down through Arkansas, just on principle. Where have your standards gone?

Sal Kilmister said...

HJ-
My standards have gone out the window--like yours have with women!

Hanoi Jake said...

Zing!! That was a good one!! Except that I never purported to have standards with women. Kreplech will back me up on that.
