    Just to be clear . . . I did not kill Norty's battery!

    Was nice to unexpectedly run into some BBOers.

    Morning all! Good to see the smiling faces....and it helps business to have these hot women hang out here! I'm jealous Liberpolly...wish that was MY weather!

    Kudos Lezbert for the kindness on the road. May the clueless Range Rover driver one day get stuck in that parking lot with no way out.

    Home again all safe and sound
    I found my new favourite drink for sitting on the beach while taking in way too much UV:
    Slush strawberry daiquiri mix with vodka instead of rum man can you ever down a lot of those suckers in a hurry.

    I have a term for an aggressive driver who stops at nothing to get by you, thereby gaining less than a second in travel time. I call these drivers "passholes." I live in Houston. Lots of passholes live here. However, it's been a long time since a driver was so blatant that, she was not only a passhole, but she managed to be a complete and utter dick, too.

    Here's the thing, I tend to be courteous in traffic, doubly so on the bike, because small things that allow traffic flow don't hinder your progress, and keep traffic flowing. There I was, sitting in a line of cars stopped for the light on San Felipe at 610. I left a gap between the car ahead of me and my bike, as did the car in the lane next to me, to allow cross traffic into and out of the driveway of the shopping center to our right. Cross traffic to and from the parking lot could need to cross four lanes, so every little bit helps. Allowing that flow keeps San Felipe from being blocked by those drivers forcing the issue and having to work their way over. If you're the driver leaving the gap, you lose no time leaving the gap. You're just sitting there. When traffic moves, you simply move up behind the car in front of you. Net result: You've done something nice, at no price to you and your forward prgress, and you helped keep traffic moving. You? Are awesome.

    So, there I was, being awesome, when the car ahead of me moved about a foot. If I'd moved up, I'd still be blocking the cross traffic, so I stayed put. The car in the lane next to me wound up with room to move, so he did. The SUV behind me, was not happy that I didn't move. The SUV behind me honked at me. I still didn't move. So the SUV behind me pulled closer to me to bully me into moving. When I didn't move, she maneuvered around me and in front of me to take up that spot. The lady in the BMW SUV trying to get out of the parking lot watched as her ability to move across four lanes of traffic disappeared. We exchanged looks, shook our heads, and shrugged. She turned into her closest lane, next to the blocking SUV. When traffic moved, she had to work her way in front of the blocking SUV (yay, moral victory!) and eventually got into her lane. I lost no time in my commute by maintaining my position. The blocking SUV gained, less than a second. So here's to you, driver of the white Range Rover GLV5653! You are the Passhole of the Day!

    Hmm..61? That's pretty chilly. For some reason, our drunk weather has moved us to the upper 70s. So weird.

    Hope everyone's okay with all the nasty weather reports I've seen. Know that the BBO bar is always open as a "warming station". Nothing does it better than an XL BugJuice!

    Everyone at work is sick. I'm not sick yet, but I'm inexplicably, uncharacteristically cold tonight. Yes, it is cold out, but not *that* cold, and I'm not usually affected by weather once I'm inside. 50/50 chance I get the sick next. Yay.
