It was actually kinda chilly this morning, like 60 degrees--and I was glad to see that! When I was in CT, I'd start dreading winter in about May. Seriously, as soon as it got warm, I'd be thinking, "ACK, it's going to be cold again in about six months." I can do these little winters down here no problem, though. And I've pretty much survived my first summer back in the Deep South! (It's still getting up to 90 some days, but at least it's not 100 like it was, and it's cooling off at night.) Huzzah.
Weather. Boy, that's gripping stuff, huh? Yeah, I THOUGHT so. Punk.
I've started missing New Haven a little bit--not so much actually living there, but little niceties like being able to walk to a good bookstore or any number of kick-ass Indian buffets on my lunch hour. Plus, I've been jonesing really bad for a trip to NYC, but that ain't quite as easy as it was when I was 75 miles away. Can't have everything, I guess.
OH. I've been meaning to do this forever. I have a traffic question. OK, let's say you're on a four-lane road with a median in the middle, and there are those places in the median to make turns (lefts and U-turns). At this point I will offer a visual aid and a poll behind a cut:
Yes, I drew a diagram. I'm a nerd. Get over it.
OK. Say you want to make a turn. Which part of the little median piece do you go through--the near or the far? Say you're on the right side of the highway as shown above, and you want to make a U-turn. Or a left turn. Doesn't matter. Do you go through the section marked A or B? I always go A, because that puts me on the right side of it, and we generally drive on the right side of the road in this country. But it seems like everyone else does the opposite--I guess because it's closer. Lazy bastiges. But maybe I'm wrong. I don't remember covering this in driver's ed 20 years ago.
Which side do you go to?
wherever I feel like it
we don't have such things where I live
I don't drive, sucker
