Waiting at the corner of DeLongpre and Vine, a police car sat in the left turn lane while I was in the right lane. This guy starts crossing the street looking like he's up to no good and then he stops in the middle of the crosswalk and waves at the police officers. Really? Because nothing says "I'm up to something" like looking as if you're up to something. Then, silly me, I was making a right on red and actually hesitated because the police were there. It's a perfectly legal move, but I guess my old rebel days and mindset have me nervous around the po po still.
Since they repaved Wilton, they added this at the corner of Wilton and Beverly,
which is awesome. If you've ever taken this route, you may remember that Wilton becomes one lane between Beverly and 2nd Street. Before this new addition, you had to play "Who's car has more pick up" in order to go from two lanes to one and still make it through one of the shortest green lights in the city. Jamie, being of manual transmission, does a pretty good job out of the gate, but there's always some idiot not willing to accept defeat who has to muscle his way in. I'm happy for this new traffic pattern, although I still saw four cars in the right lane go straight across. Oh well, it's new. They'll get used to it.
Look at my little Shamrock growing like a weed:I'm so happy for my little plant. Unfortunately, the bean that I was trying to grow did not sprout. It turned moldy instead. ew.
Last night after chatting with my Mom, I heard this buzzing sound like a swarm of locusts. What the ? Is Moses back and no one told me? I looked all around my apartment, decided it was outside and then looked out all my windows. Turns out a guy in the house around the corner, whose backyard abuts mine, was playing with a remote control car with an engine the size of a lawn mower. I might add his back yard is about as big as my living room, so really it was just hitting the wall and bouncing back. But, dang, it was loud.
Also, this Savage Chickens cartoon reminded me of my quiet night.Of course mine should read "Gnome's high heels" and "lawn mower-sized remote control car."
Hope y'all had a more productive Monday than I.
