they call that cosmic bowling - there is a bowling alley next door to the skating rink that does it (but they sell booze at the bowling alley!)


Update: I seem to skate a lot better when I am drunk...I went sober last night and was having issues (note to self: bring full flask next time)

theres a little more to it than that, but you'd be surprised how many ppl wouldn't even like a job like that bc they have to run. ...lots of lazy ppll out there
same thing as being a personal trainer; anyone can just go work out...but some ppl prefer to have someone tell them what to do (how, and why..etc...there is some science behind it)

update: thought i was going to die on my ride, its soooooooooo hot.

Update: Test driving an X3 tomorrow to see if the wife can get one. Reviews say its way to harsh of a ride. The Q5 was a nice SUV, my soul was on fire being in the audi dealership for an hour today. $665/mo for a Q5 is a bit ridunck if you ask me.
