It Never Fails

Every time I think I've seen every weird thing drivers around here do, something new and strange happens.

On my way in to work this afternoon I was behind someone turning left. So I'm waiting for them to make it through the intersection, they finally get through but on the yellow. The light turns red, and I stay put to wait for it to turn green again.

After maybe 5 or 10 seconds the person behind me starts beeping at me. I figured I'd completely zoned out and the light switched, glance up... nope, still red. So I point at the light and look back at him going "It's red!" The guy is behind me gesturing and all disgusted at me. It looked like he wanted me to go through the intersection. On the red light.

It finally turned green and I went through and this dude turned left behind me so I only saw him for a few more seconds, but he went through his turn just shaking his head all disgusted at me.

It didn't make me mad or anything, it just confused the daylights out of me. What exactly did he want me to do? How is stopping at a red light a bad thing? It makes me wish there were some way to track the guy down and ask him what on earth his problem was.

C'Mon BBC!

So I figured out how to watch stuff on BBC's website (there's a proxy involved).

Their player for the Paralympic coverage says "Live!" on it. So silly me thinks that means live. So I get up at 6 am (after being at work last night until nearly 1 because stupid football made us start late) to watch the US vs. GB rugby game. I thought they'd have it. It's starting to look that "live" means what they're airing on the BBC right now, not actually what's live right now. They've had track and swimming so far which is all stuff that happened earlier today.


May I Take a Nap Please?

It's probably a really good thing that I'm just babysitting the 10 tonight 'cuz I'm not sure I'm going to conscious by then, let alone be able to do anything horribly useful.

But on the plus side, BBC did finally air half of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th quarter of the US/GB game. The gold medal game will be tomorrow at 8am (EST). So, still early, but not as bad and I'm off at 11 tonight so hopefully I'll actually be able to get some sleep before then!

I Hate Jeans Shopping!

It's been rather chilly here the last couple days and the jeans I bought this past spring no longer fit. I realize this is a good problem to have, nonetheless, I hate clothes shopping in general and pants in particular.

I know I've told the capri story before. I am short. Petite pants are even too long, they need to be hemmed. But they do get close length-wise. A lot closer than "normal" pants. Unfortunately the top half of petite pants really don't fit at all. So I end up buying "normal" length pants that fit on the top half but are then 6 inches too long.

I think I tried on at least a dozen pairs of jeans before I found one that basically fits. They're waaaaay too long, but they'll work.
