Did I mention I had a bad commute?

       Me too. But I'm not one of THEM. I drive anywhere between 80-120 miles a day throughout L.A. with only 20 if any at all miles on the Freeways. I Rule the Sunset Strip.

       Hands free cellphone, ok. Lipstick and mirrors... not while driving, puh-leeeeze. That fifth of whiskey? Lets' not even go there! GeneticCrypto, I hope it was not your sentence that had the bad commute...
