Quote of the day: “I am a leaf on the wind. Watch me soar.” ~Wash, Serenity
Song of the day: D.O.A. by the Foo Fighters
State of mind: slightly annoyed and tired because it is so gloomy
Yesterday was pretty surreal. I was driving back from the mall after seeing Serenity again (because it is that good) when the Emergency Broadcast System broke in on the radio during one of the two songs I don’t mind by Jethro Tull. It gave the three annoying tones, but instead of the announcer saying ‘this is a test…” it said, “They took the cross town bus.” It looped like that a few more times, and it was on all the channels too. Once the station finally went back to the music, no explination was given for what had just happened.
Then a few miles down the thruway I saw the flashing lights of an ambulance in my rearview mirror. Since I hadn’t passed any accidents I figured it was on it’s way to the hospital, so when a few moments later it passed me and got off at the next exit I wasn’t surprised. I got off at the same exit a few moments after only to find that when I came around the turn towards the toll booths the ambulance was still there. It was in line at one of the tollbooths despite the fact that two Easy Pass lanes were open. I always thought that emergency vehicles could go wherever they needed to without being impeded, so I was more then a little shocked to watch as it pulled up to the booth and pay the toll!! No kidding. #1) I can’t believe they have to pay and #2) even if they have to pay, why in the hell aren’t they equipped with and Easy Pass?? Can you imagine riding in the back, bloody, in pain, and finding out that the amount of time it took to get you to the hospital was lengthened by the driver who didn’t have change? Insane.
Angel quote of the day:
Gunn: Something’s starting to look a lot not right about this.
Fred: That’s what I’ve been saying, only with better grammar.
