a gambit for my ambit

<< Feb 27, 2007 @ 09:43 >>

My usual route to work involves a jaunt down the sidestreets to avoid the traffic lights and "No Turn on Red" signs of the main roads. Despite it being days since our snow storm, my way was blocked this morning by a huge snow drift freshly plowed across the road in front of me by a snow plow crossing the intersection.

It was like my car was the Baalrog and the snowdrift was Gandalf. "You shall not pass!" It commanded. The snow was even kind of grey, which fits, because Gandalf wasn't Gandalf the White in that part of the movie yet.

Uh... *cough*

So I backed up and turned around to find a new route. On the way out of the little cleverly constructed snow trap, three cars were headed towards me. "You must answer me these autos three," Gandalf said. Oh wait, wrong movie. Those poor suckers had to all turn around, too... but they had to contend with eachother being in the way in order to do it.

Just when I was thinking I got the long end of that stick, and chuckling to myself at their misfortune, I took a left turn onto my alternate route and...

...a black cat crossed my path.

If I get hit by a meteor or something today, I just want you all to know I saw it coming.

I hope that the meteor is actually just a big flaming ball of poo.

I forgot to mention the logging truck(!) parking me in at my apartment before I even left this morning.
