But really? Does he have to breathe so often? Or so loud? Ugh.
Intersections: There was an article in the local paper this morning about our "most dangerous intersections" and what the plan is for making them less dangerous. (As a side note: apparently, we have 450 intersections with traffic lights - somehow I would have thought there were more. But then, I'm probably factoring in the outlying areas.)
At any rate, their "plan" for some of these intersections includes using flashing yellow arrows for turn lanes rather than the standard green (or as they are better known "it's your turn to go now, idiot") arrows. Naturally, I am against this.
Particularly when you take into account that these people are used to waiting for the green arrow. I, myself, narrowly escaped disaster when they changed the system - sans announcement - at one intersection I frequent quite often.
No, I think the better option would be for the DOT to find a way to get people to actually pay attention while they are driving. And, while they are at it, get rid of all these damn concrete medians they've put up all over the city. The ones that force you to go out of your way to get where you are going.
If anything, they need to put up GIGANTIC signs on the lights that say, "Hey, moron! This is a turn ONLY lane" to keep them from trying to move over into the going straight lane at the last minute, while NOT using their turn signal...but I digress...
Unfollowing: Ever since Google got rid of Google Friends, or whatever it was called, I have been trying to figure out how to unfollow some blogs. I don't generally follow any blogs unless I'm sure it's one that I want popping up on my dashboard but, occasionally, a few slip in or the blogger just stops blogging for no apparent reason - note to self: if you ever decide to stop blogging, TELL people - and you feel the need to "spring clean." With Friends being gone (although, from my research, the widget seems to be alive and well), I couldn't easily unfollow.
As any of you who have been around for a while can imagine; this drove me insane.
But I've finally figured it out (after spending hours of looking). According to one website, there is a way to do so via the widget - don't ask me about the website, I couldn't find it again if my life depended on it.
BUT, if you happen to have a Google+ account, which I do (why? I have no idea; I never use it) you can go to your Account settings; scroll down and find the Friend Connect area and stop following from there.
The pretty: Because after listening to all this random, ranting you (and I) deserve something pretty to round it all out.
|Pretty - right? AND they smell like heaven, I assume.|
