I heard the first half or so -- then threw the car into a snowbank during a blizzard and kinda forgot about the rest of the 'cast.  Should I finish?  Chip had just said how he'd never want to judge while he's in the business.  What else. . .?

It's a long story, with an abscessed tooth that had to come out so they rescheduled surgery 'til 21 February.  No big deal there, although I sure as heck would like to get this stuff over with so I can get ready for SpeedWeek.

As for driving all night in a blizzard - that's part of my cool retirement job (the driving all night part - the blizzard was an extra bonus).  It's fun - mostly because there is ZERO traffic.  Well, almost zero, like maybe I see a truck or car in an hour.
