One of the most over-used words in my vocabulary is the word, 'awesome'. An extremely versatile word, it can be used to describe both the good and the bad.

For example:

- The insanity that is I-84 in Hartford, CT: Awesome. It's like driving on the highway version of a back-ass country road; the twists, the turns, the left hand lane you're driving in suddenly becoming an exit ramp! One minute the speed limit is 65 MPH, the next minute it's 50. Whee!

- The person driving in front of you doing their best to get somebody killed by cutting off not one, but two tractor trailer trucks: Awesome

- Hanging around doing nothing for three hours because the person you are supposed to meet with today forgot they have meetings all morning: Awesome

- A vending machine bag of peanuts and a Coca-Cola for lunch: Awesome

- The Slayer / Garth Brooks play-list you made for the 2 hour ride home is exactly long enough to get you from door to door: Awesome

- Soft tacos for dinner: Awesome

- With Shilling on the mound and 'Tek at the plate, the Red Sox finally get a win vs the MFY: Awesome

Heh. Interesting that you mention 84. I was on there this weekend, traveling to Newburgh, NY. I know what you mean about the craziness. Kind of cool tho.

Dude that road is like a state cop's wet dream come true with all the hills and valleys, twists, turns, speed limit changes...

I love the Hartford part the best: one minute the road's 6 lanes wide, then suddenly it merges down to 2... Awesome!

Just stay in the middle lanes or you'll wind up going the wrong way on I-91 or lost somewhere in downtown Hartford ;)
