  • I live on top of a mountain. We have a general store up here and to get to a supermarket its a 10-15 minute drive. And even then they close at about 8:30. I could probably have gotten some from a servo but it would be a long way out of my way when its a 1 minute drive to the station.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

      Good God, man; we're talkin' coffee here. Would you serve artificial sweetener as sugar? Would you serve cooked raccoon as prime rib? And isn't it true that you hit Mrs. Picadilly in the head with the candlestick as she walked through the den?

      • HEY! I live at the top of a mountain (for the remainder of this week anyhow)

        But like Patty, its a 15-20 min drive to anything that's open after 9pm. Kinda sucks when a craving pops up.

              fortunately for me, when the craving pops up, I am only a few minutes walk from the necessities of life!

              • Well it may be a little inconvenient getting anything after 7pm, i have the best view around. Although right now we are in the clouds and i can hardly see my neighbour's house.

                  • Yeah, that may be the problem.


                    But on a serious side, we got a strong weather warning and there is VERY poor visibility on the roads. It took about 15 minutes to get to the station for training today cause i had to drive that slowly.

                            Damn that's nice! I would trade you any day. I HATE it here. Nothing but sun, sand & girls in bikinis. I would much rather look at the mountains. I bet its really pretty in the winter.

                            • I dont like sand, never have and never will. I dont go to the beach here, its only about 25 minutes to surfers paradise, but i hate the beach. Too much sand and salt for me. Give me a nice creek and a waterfall anyday.

                                I guess yo wont trade then.
