This is a fun thread !! Turns out I pamper myself with some of the same things other posters have mentioned
I'm passionate about
driving and I no longer take it for granted! There's nothing like letting loose on a country road...hitting the apexes, straightening out the corners, hoping not to get arrested. Doubt the cops would let me off for a "yearn'in for some lap time" at Mosport, the Glen or Mid Ohio. Those were the days....:) Too bad a tight suspension makes all the bumps really hurt - ouch!! But oh-so worth it. I also agree with the other ladies...never enough shoes and boots !! And after my reversal (March 1) and some recovery time, I'll be pampering myself with some new jeans !!!!!!! Finally. And a mountain bike !!! Gee, I'm sounding like I need to suck up to Santa soon.
ps - congrats to my American friends on the Gold Medal in moguls. Poor Jen Heil had to settle for Silver this time. Ah but we Canucks did win that little hockey game tonight :)) 18-0 , I believe.
