This is a collection of my thoughts. Some of the thoughts that I once had, I no longer do. Some thoughts I have now I have never had. Yet none shal be discounted. This blog is soley for the enjoyment of the author and the readers. On occasion the views expressed are overly exagerated in order to prove a point. Also there may be a dirty word or thought in some of the posts. Grow up and take this for what it's worth - a blog that barely anyone will ever see.


Jay Won!

Congrats to Jay! He has won the picture contest. Thanks to all who entered. Your responses were as quick as they were wrong. Except for Jay.
The Speedway with the altered sign is on Cass Avenue in Westmont ( 6241 S. Cass Ave, Westmont, IL 60559 (630)810-1120) Enjoy reasonably priced gas (Roughly $2.05 at the moment) as well as other amenities.
The clerks come close to speaking English which makes for a better purchasing experience. Expect to find lighters and chap stick on the counter.
While the amenities leave a little to be desired, majority of what you are looking for is available. It is not as expansive as it's counter-part found on Boughton Road in Bolingbrook. (499 West Boughton Road, Bolingbrook, IL 60030 (630)759-1950) The only thing that I wish they would bring back to either location is the quart of chocolate milk. That was a staple of mine for nearly a year until they took it away roughly 8.5 months ago. They do have the pints of "Milk Chug" chocolate milk, but that defeats the purpose! Bastards. Expect the gas price to be anywhere from 0.03-$0.12 more than it's Westmont counterpart. This being due to it's location, I'm guessing, not to compensate for nearly triple the shopping experience with it's larger store. Despite the larger store, the selections seem to just be spread out more. Granted, they have the rotating hot dogs, Mexican crispy things and other stuff that I fear investigating. They have the large soda fountain that no one uses. They have the extra magazines in the rack. (Maxim and FHM) But, the other amenities (chocolate milk) that the average consumer craves are not there. Lets see some soup or chili or cereal! If you are a convince store, you should provide the simple stuff. The cat food is not necessary for everyone. Chili is. (Beans in. Don't skimp on the beans, dammit!)
Jay you now have a week to compose a blog post for the blog on whatever you would like. E-mail it to be in time and it will be included for all to see. Should you desire pictures or video, include the links.
Thanks to all who played. More later!

    Pints are always better than half-pints, but not nearly as quenching as quarts.

    I think I'm gonna give them a call...just to see what they are up to.
