Going to the south bay photogs meetup in Campbell, it starts at 7, but I don't want to leave here till then, when the designed-by-deranged-homicidal-maniacs commuter lane on Montague Expressway is open to all. Making the curb lane a commuter lane is just one more in the series of CalTrans WTFs, along with freeway exits which merge into freeway entrances. I miss the cloverleafs of Southern State Parkway, they were fun to ride, safe, and great for banana hangs.
I caught Neil Gaiman's 5 minutes of fame on Colbert last night, he's quite charming. I'm not a fan of the genre, and there are five books in the queue already, but maybe I'll take a peek at the graveyard thing. Sometimes clever writing is reward enough.
Listened to Obama's press conference, and was much amused when some Type A Republican lap dog tried to make it sound like a crime that the Prez had not spoken immediately about the AIG screw-up. Obama's answer was "I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak". Meow. As if it took him three days to understand the issue. Nice side-step, Mr. President.
OTOH I had to turn off the congressional hearings because they were all political BS with no content. After the second GOP rep spoke I needed to call Ghostbusters to de-slime me.
