This is how slow the traffic was on the way home today. I actually had time to pull out my camera and take a couple of pictures. I even changed some settings.

Don’t worry, though I was technically driving, I was completely stopped when I did this.


You Know You’re From California…

I got this idea from Dandelion Wine
“You go to google and type in “You know you’re from [your state]” to see if they’re true.”

Here are some which I found true, or which made me giggle:

You make over $300,000 and still can’t afford a house.
Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the US

It’s barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave for work an hour early to avoid all the weather-related accidents.
You pass by a high school and most of the kids you see are talking on a cell phone.
The Terminator is your new governor. (note: I think this should be “You have a Governator”)
A really great parking space can move you to tears.
The guy at 8:30 in the morning at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney IS George Clooney.
Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.
You really can never be too rich or too thin.
Any invitation comes with, “Starts at 8pm or as soon as you can get through traffic.”
An earthquake hits and you say casually to the person sitting next to you: “3.5”.
