a funny thing happened on the way to work....

today a number of silly things happened on my trip to work that made me laugh out loud.
  • you know those curbs there are in the middle of the road sometimes?  you know, the ones to separate left from right, sometimes they have traffic lights or street signs coming out of them?  well today some dude driving a Mazda 3 decided to drive over it.  those familiar with the Mazda 3 will understand that this is NOT the type of vehicle that should be doing such feats and will share my joy in knowing that it was STUCK and a tow truck dude was trying to help get the car off of the curb.
  • there was a guy driving his minivan with NO HANDS on his steering wheel (no, not No Hands, but driving with his hands not on the wheel).  what were his hands doing?  well one was holding his cell phone, and the other was guiding his fingers into the cavernous depths of his nostrils.
  • a taxi cab stalled in the middle of the road
all this in the space of the hour it took me to get to work today.

speaking of work, can i get a hell yeah for the long weekend?  i love the fact that even though we're supposed to be independent from the whole "British Monarchy" thing, we still get to celebrate holidays respecting their royalty.  let's hear it for Victoria Day weekend!  i'll raise a beer to that.

and some sunchips.  because they're awesome.  they pretend to be some sort of a healthy snack, but really?  they're chips (or crisps depending on where you're from).  just not made out of potatos.
