The adult world is pretty irrelevant to me. Whether I’m off on my bicycle (or pony) exploring, lost in a good book, or giggling with my best friend, I live in a world apart, one full of adventure and wonder and other stuff adults don’t understand.
Ok, show of hands, who really likes driving?
Me, I hate driving. Especially city driving. Well, at the very least, it’s not very high on my list of preferred activities.
Why is it that some people turn into ignorant inconsiderate boobs when the seal themselves into their cars/SUVs/trucks?
After driving around here for a while, I’ve decided that while the roads are decidedly better than they were in Detroit, the drivers are not.
A few things I’ve observed in my four years of driving around here. Some of these are probably not unique to here, but I’ve noticed them more than other places.
1. Most people don’t use turn signals. Apparently, this area has a large population of people who become telepathic once they get into their cars. So instead of using turn signals, they just transmit their thoughts to other drivers around them. Or else they think everyone else becomes telepathic in their cars, and should be able to read their mind to find out when they’re turning.
Spent a lazy sunday afternoon watching another one of my favourite Audrey Hepburn movies, Roman Holiday. I like these lazy afternoons. I’ve got an Excel programming project I really should be working on, but nothing beats a good Audrey Hepburn movie.
It’s been a pretty rainy weekend, because of Tropical Depression Henri. But at least it’s been nice and relatively cool. In a few more days, we’ll see what Hurricane Irene has in store for the area.
Added a new Bugs album to my photo gallery to show off some of my pictures of the more interesting insects I run across. Also added a couple of new flower pictures that I snapped last weekend. Go check them out.
