- Traffic rant: Would you consider contining to drive when your car is putting out a lot of smoke? The car I was following up a freeway offramp the other night suddenly disappeared in a cloud of first black and then thick white smoke such that I had to stop my car because I couldn't see. The other car continued to drive, going up a long offramp, turning right and driving another 1/2 mile to major intersection. Traffic was stopped entirely by the smoke and it was very scary. I couldn't believe the other driver didn't notice his car blew up!
- Living in the same city all my life, I am still surprised to know so few people when I go to community events. That's what happens when you're not much of a joiner, I guess.
- DD Elaine is in wedding mode now...the 1,000,000 decisions required between now and then are a bit daunting.
- I've watched a Lifetime TV show called One Born Every Minute, about labor and childbirth in a major hospital. I am frankly astounded to see how labor happens these days for a lot of women--not all of them, but most. They are stuck in bed strapped to a monitor, are given IV Pitocin to speed labor, have epidurals, and then are propped up in a sitting position for 45 minutes towards the end of the labor for gravity to help. Huh? Only one couple so far has had a natural childbirth. It is still fascinating to watch, but I feel out of touch!

Not Tuesday's Orts
So I didn't get a Tuesday's Orts composed Monday night because I was too tired to think, and yesterday there was a lot of work at both jobs and I was too tired to think, plus DH was using the computer most of the evening. Boy, am I ready for the 3-day weekend coming up!
