There isn't a decent snowblower to be had for miles around, and we have (supposedly) another two big snow storms moving through in the next 48 hours. I can get me a Poulan from Amazon.com, which they say I can have by Friday, but I don't see how they can deliver it in the middle of a blizzard.
You now, when I moved here, I checked as to whether I should get a snowblower. I was told it simply never snows enough to need one. This is what I get for listening to CJ. In the immortal words of Rico, "F-in' CJ."
We did, however, manage to satisfy The Mrs. by buying the world's most expensive non-commercial-grade elliptical trainer today. I managed to talk The Mrs. out of trying to get a junky one at Sports Authority yesterday, and came home and researched these things. Then, today we went to 5 different stores and managed to come away with something that wasn't on my list but that happened to be $500 more than anything at was.
After like 45 minutes each at two of the 5 stores (the other 3 being washouts), The Mrs. had it all narrowed down between a $2000 model and a $3500 model. Guess which one she bought. Yeah. That's right.
She better use that thing every single day, cuz for $3500 we could have gotten all kinds of things. Like a new set of boobs, for instance, which is the kind of thing that really can be used every day. Or a supercharger kit of the truck. Or almost 10 years of membership at Curves.
Or, as The Mrs. asserts, six months worth of wine. Somehow, she figured I personally drank a $20 bottle of wine each and every day. I'm not sure I even own any $20 bottles of wine, much less drink one every day. I think we as a family go through about 2 bottles a week, and they average about $14 a bottle. So maybe that's two years worth of wine.
I could also have gotten three really nice snowblowers. Though I only need one.
