Post-Haze

I must be coming out of my moving funk because I have had a lot on my mind today.

First off, if two vehicles approach an intersection facing each other (coming in opposite directions), both have a stop sign, and both are turning left, who has the right of way? What if one arrived at the stop sign first? I’ve tried looking this up online and I can’t find this exact scenario. I don’t care if one is turning right or going straight.

Before we moved, I didn’t really get out much. I am very much a homebody. I enjoy puttering around the house with my work, school, books, etc. Now that I carpool our oldest, I am out and about every day. The more I’m out, the more I think that people should have to take and pass the written part of a driver’s test every five years and the road test at least every ten years. People are freaking maniacs on the road. Mindless maniacs at that.

Also, who do you write or call about needing a stop light or four way stop in your town? The intersection by my daughter’s school is manned by a police officer every morning because traffic is so insane. This morning he wasn’t there and traffic was backed up about two blocks, I kid you not. Despite the fact that I leave so that she can arrive to school ten minutes before the bell (you know, for the all important locker stop and morning gossip) she arrived late this morning because our friendly police officer was elsewhere. He happens to be an Ohio State fan so we like him, lol.

Secondly, RSS readers are for lazy people, myself included. Take that however you like.

Thirdly, despite the fact that I went online at the USPS website to have our mail forwarded and paid the $1 it took to do so (what’s up with that?), my mail still isn’t getting forwarded. I’m not happy especially since I am anticipating the arrival of a couple checks and I may or may not receive them at this point. Yeah. I know. I’m going in to fill out the thing at the office today.

Fourthly, why is this season of Weeds so dark? I realize what it’s about, but it used to make me laugh now it makes me tense. Same thing with season 1 of Californication. It started out funny and now it’s just sad. I NEED MY FUNNY!!

You  know what I just learned? That “fourthly” is a word unless my spell checker is dumber than me, heheh.

  1. Hmmm...4th season of Weeds is really dark? I don't like the sounds of that. I've only seen the first episode of the 4th (online). I hate to hear that it's getting tense. I felt the same way about the beginning of the 3rd but Doug always provided comedy relief.

    I don't have an answer to you rstop sign question but our city webpage has an area under the public works section/traffic area where you can send a request to look at an area that you think needs signs or traffic signals. There also may be some main number you can call with the city.

  2. Pam~~Yeah. Weeds hasn't been very funny the last few weeks. Even Doug's been a little dull.

    Thanks for the tip for public works. I think if an intersection requires a cop EVERY day to direct traffic, that alone should say something needs to change but what do I know.
