Scar Surrounded

Sunshine, Fifty Degrees...

So everybody turns off their brains and gets out on the road! Wheeeee! *crash*

I sometimes wonder how this area can hold this much stoopid and not spontaneously combust. In the three-block run from here to Starbucks at lunchtime, laurie_robey and I watched one fender-bender, I saw two pedestrians jump in front of a pickup truck on wet pavement (that managed to miss them, thank goodness), and another near-miss with somebody going straight through in a left-turn-only lane.

That's not counting the strange woman in the fur coat who was looking in every car in the parking lot as she strode along smoking her cigarette, and the guy in front of us who couldn't take a sharp left because he couldn't put down his phone long enough to put both hands on the wheel.

Inspection, er, Inspectorated!

All was well with the inspection; there was a minor issue with the doorbell (you have to press it 'til your thumb almost breaks, but it rings), and there are still some things with the place that need fixing, but they were not part of the move-in contract. We're just planning to take care of them ourselves (raingutter coming loose on one corner, dimmer switch doesn't dim, etc.).

An automatic garage door opener. Man. This is luxury!

So, by this time tomorrow, the place will be ours.
