    I felt the same way when my mother and stepfather went on vacation,
    leaving my 18yo sister in charge of my 14yo self.

    My best friend spent the night and we took out my stepfather's
    Cadillac Seville.

    That thing was an ugly ass BEAST. It was like driving a BOAT... especially
    when you're only 5 feet tall and 80lbs... SNORT!

    Anyway, I know it's no big ass truck, but I know the giddy feeling!

        • That's awesome.

          I LOVE big HUGE POWERFUL trucks.

          Now not the ones that are jacked up on stupid tires like
          some GROWN MEN like to do... Like a 4-runner with HUGE
          mud tires... srsly, save it for the mud, not city streets, but
          the BIG HUGE trucks, love them.

          Dude at the end of our court drives some big ol' beastly diesel.

          LOVE IT.

          Ever since I was a little girl I wanted a HUGE black truck and two black
          labs.

          Had the two labs, but wimped out for 16 million BMW's instead.

          FAIL.

          TEE HEE!

          Maybe if I had something to pull, or cool places to go... but here in the burbs, where
          it never snows and rarely rains, I barely drive over 5 miles a week as it is.

          One day I will have my truck ONE DAY.... Maybe move to Oregon to merit it..

          • Jenn, I posted a running question on my journal. When you have the time, could you help me out? Thanks

            • I've always loved trucks too. The bigger and louder, the better. I like them lifted an with big tires too... lol But I live in the Midwest and there are plenty of places to play when you have a big truck with big tires. Plus, there's the snow factor. Our truck has regular size tires, but they have huge lugs on them. The lugs make the tires loud (Brad HATES them), and also makes it next to impossible to get around in the snow. He wants to get some Big Country brand tires for it, which are a little bit bigger in diameter, but have shorter lugs than what we have now, so they're less noisy. But, I'm not willing to spring for tires for it yet... there's enough lug on these that they oughta last us about 5 years! lol The only thing we really use the truck for is pulling the race car. We had a 5.4L F150 and F250 - neither were very good at pulling the trailer. This thing though... you'd never know a trailer was even attached if you didn't look in the mirrors once in a while! As for me, I'm having a tough time deciding what I want my next vehicle to be. About the time I settle on the Ford Edge, I see an F150 and want one super bad! lol

              ****

              Switching gears - Sister is discouraged. She's on Day 17 of the Whole30 and hasn't lost a single pound. I tried to explain to her that I have lost only one single pound since August, but my body is still changing as a result of the diet changes and the gym time, but I don't think she wanted to hear it. I learned today that I weigh 5 lbs more than her, but our bodies are vastly different. For instance, she's 'softer' than I am. I carry more muscle whereas she carries more body fat. She really needs to get herself into a gym and start doing some heavy lifting. I think she'd REALLY slim down if she started doing that... but she'd freak out if she started to gain weight and would quit the gym like a lot of girls do. I'm not sure what to tell her regarding the lack of weight loss. She lost a lot doing Ideal Protein (soy isolate shakes), so maybe she's just at a set point and has to just wait it out... who knows.

              Whole30 Day 24. 13 days remain until I can have dairy again. And chocolate. And honey. Very curious to see how my measurements have changed, if at all. I feel like I look slimmer... I think maybe I'll do a blood screening at the end of the Whole30 to see where things stand. See if I've improved or not. I've been eating a LOT of fruit, almost compulsively, since starting the Whole30, so I don't think I've broken my sugar addiction at all, just replaced it. I suspect that will impact my blood results - higher carbs = higher triglycerides according to It Starts with Food.

              Today is a 3 mile run day. I hope the rain holds off so I can get it done. If it starts raining, I'll probably do my bench press workout instead and run tomorrow. I'd rather not do that b/c running tomorrow will have me in the same boat as last week - where I was doing squats the day after a long run. My legs were very tired after the squats and my squats felt weaker. I don't want to do that again - nor do I want to run the day after squats for the same reason. So, it really needs to stay dry until about 2... lol

              • It's only 30 days out of the rest of her life. Come up with a checklist for her to evaluate how she feels. Better skin clarity? Better digestion? No bloating? Better sleep? She might learn it all herself at the end when she goes back to wheat.

                • I'm not a fan of big trucks. Clint wants one and I told him I'll never drive it if he does get one. We have a 2000 Lincoln Town Car that I drive and despise as well. I actually want a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. I really like the new Hyundai Sonatas but he hates them.

                  • I love huge, loud-as-f*ck trucks because nothing says "My penis doesn't work and my wife is leaving me" like having everyone hear you coming from 3 miles away in your 10 mpg, gas guzzling piece of overpriced crap.

                    Of course, if you are pulling a trailer or working on a farm or whatever then more power to you. Get the sized truck you need. However, if you are a retired pos who is making up for the fact that privates don't have to listen to you any more by getting a giant, loud, obnoxious vehicle that serves no purpose but vehicular viagra then please go f*ck off and die.



                    Editor's note...not a reflection on Jenn, who has no penis, wife, or huge ego...I just had to get that off my chest.

                    • I feel that way about Corvettes, Lambos and Ferraris. Big trucks just remind me of redneck white trash asshats and how I hate them.

                        I've seen this before and agree... Some are too extravagant for me and I can't see the point in spending all that money... our trucks are usually stock. On this truck, the tires are not stock, but we bought it used.

                        I consider myself a redneck. Not white trash, but redneck. Or maybe redneck's not the proper term... I love riding 4 wheelers, fishing, hunting, driving big trucks, and guys who wear cowboy boots with baseball caps... (sadly, Brad does not wear boots and a cap). I'm a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. Not sure if this qualifies as redneck. If it doesn't, then I don't know what I am. lol

                        • EVERYONE down here has a giant, honking huge pickup that is so pristine that you know it's never seen mud or anything more than groceries in it's bed. These usually have duallies, an exhaust system louder than a fucking Harley, and/ or is jacked up well beyond what you would need for county roads out here. (Well, that or a work truck of some sort. Those are excused from this.) I hate the fuckers. If you want to prove you have the genitalia a woman would want, how 'bout having a personality a woman would want? Fucking redneck jackasses. I have no desire to hear you coming a mile away or not be able to see around you for oncoming traffic. I had a few of these asshats think they could run me and my Corolla off the road, literally. I held my ground and they ended up eating shoulder.
                          IF I ever had the money for a "play" car and attendant insurance rates, I'd get an Aston Martin. Fuck Ferrari, fuck Fiat (Fix It Again, Tony), fuck domestic.
                          That said, I believe the perfect car is quiet as death, room temperature cool engine (100% efficiency), safe enough to protect me and passengers against a semi, leather interior that compensates again heat and won't roast me in summer, has photovoltaic cells to fuel itself from the sun, quicker than NASCAR, and has a similar body style to a mid 2000s Aston Martin. Needless to say, I'll never get it.
                          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                          • I grew up around a lot of white trash. Rednecks are more fun. I hate fishing, four wheeling, muddin' and all that. I do love wearing jeans and tees though.

                            • Redneck is acceptable. Rednecks are casual, not jackasses, and don't represent every negative white stereotype. A redneck can be any color.

                              • My dream car is something small and efficient. My dream FUN car is an air-cooled Beetle. Yes, I had one, but it was a POS. I want one that's reasonably restored/renovated (especially/mostly the interior, suspension, and electrical) with a modified engine. I'd want a bit more juice than stock. The motors are pretty weensy
