Twyn Rivers Drive 
Today I rode my bike on Twyn Rivers Drive for the first time.

I don't really recommend it. Ugh.

Trying to Test Drive a Corvette 
After the fun I had at the Porsche dealership, dealing with Chevy in trying to test drive a Corvette has been the complete opposite.

GM Canada has a form on their website you can fill out to request a test drive. I did that, and then waited a few weeks and got absolutely no response at all.

I did it again, choosing a different dealership, and they actually got back to me.

Unfortunately they said they can't get a car to test drive. They suggested I just buy one and, if I don't like it when it turns up in a few months, I can give it back.

I understand that they're selling like hotcakes and there aren't any just sitting around to be played with. What I don't understand is how GM can't have at least a few available somewhere that they can arrange to send to each dealership for scheduled test drives when needed.

Do people really buy a lot of cars this expensive without ever having a chance to try them out??

Campaigning Gone Wrong 
I just got a phone call from the provincial Liberal party telling me that Tracey something or other, our MPP, has been doing a great job for us and asking whether they can count on my vote in the upcoming election.

So I asked what she'd done. The poor girl on the phone had absolutely nothing for me. She replied that she didn't have information about the platform, to which I responded that I was really only interested in what she's done so far.

Nothing at all, apparently.

I probably couldn't be swayed in my vote at this time, but heck... you'd think they'd at least try. Or maybe this area is so locked up for them that they don't need to bother.

Happy Race Day!! 
My PVR is getting a workout today. I'm just now starting to watch the Monaco Grand Prix. Then it's the Indy 500 and then finally, later tonight, the Coke 600, which is the longest NASCAR race in the season. Fun times for a lazy Sunday.

Crime 
I'm drinking this stuff tonight.

Poor Michelle. She tried the first sip before I'd had any. She said it was like drinking pepper sauce. She wasn't really wrong.

After the first few sips, the pepper isn't quite so potent anymore, though it's nearly 10% alcohol, so that might help.

Beer Advocate basically hates it. If not for the fact that I've never had anything like it before, I'd probably agree with them. It's uniqueness sort of saves it for me though.

That and the fact that I'm not really familiar with the Lukcy Basartd Ale (not a spelling error) that it's based on, so the sense of shame at ruining it is lost on me.

I won't buy more, but I'm glad I had it.
