So this “morning” during my commute to work (morning being relative), before I’ve even gotten 20 feet out of the driveway of my apartment complex, I signal to turn right at the next intersection, and as I turn, the guy who’s turning left in the lane in front of me flips me off and screams something at me I can’t hear.
I assume it’s because he assumes I didn’t signal, because my blinker in the front right doesn’t work, and I just made him lost five whole seconds of his life because he could have turned earlier if he had seen me signal.
Is this really a reason to yell at someone and flip them off? It’s totally out of my control. I consider myself to be an above average driver, especially on the freeway, but how does it bode when, first thing in the day, a random guy yells at you for no reason of your own?
Well, I watched the Thunderbirds 2086 tape. The contents of the tape weren’t the same as what was on the box, but surprisingly, it was the other two episodes I hadn’t seen.
Unfortunately, they were two of the earlier episodes, so the voice acting was terrible and the editing felt very clunky. *sigh* That’s another of my childhood memories tarnished by the harsh light of reality.
Now I’m gonna watch my Clerks Animated Show DVD for some real quality animation. 😛
So I got the goods from an Ebay auction I won… a Thunderbirds 2086 tape. I paid a whole $10 for this thing completely on faith that it would be something useful. (For those of you who don’t know, TB2086 was a Japanese Animation show brought over to the US and broadcast on cable TV in the early 80’s) Not only is it not a PAL tape (which means I can actually watch it on my VCR) it’s two episodes that I haven’t seen yet! Keep in mind I’ve seen almost all of the episodes (there’s now just one I will haven’t have seen after I watch this tape tonight)… and I used to have them all on tape until I lost one of the two tapes!
So now I’m down to six episodes… 4 recorded from tv, and the two I have now.
Dammit, if only I hadn’t left that tape back at the old house… my housemates probably have recorded over it by now…
I think I’m starting to get sick at the sight of the phrase “happily taken”. As in; every cute girl I meet is… happily taken.
