Whaaa? Yes, in two weeks.

August 5-7 is for a bachelor party. No I'm not getting married. Unless my parents get their way. Or if Christie makes me an eHarmony profile.

You could have an all-glass hatch fabricated so we can see all the junk in your trunk.

I hate it when people in front of you turn on their windshield washers at speed and it slings crap and water onto your car. When I come into power I'm gonna make that a misdemeanor.
