    Yesterday I was almost taken out by a small chihuahua.

    He was so cute -- so tiny -- came tearing out into the street at me and my first instinct was to screech to a stop but instead I sped up, HOPING he wouldn't be stupid enough to throw himself in my path. He didn't. He enjoyed the testosterone flush of having "scared" me away, I think.

    “Hey, clearly failure doesn’t deter me!”

    I'll gladly send you all mine. I have 6 huge gorgeous tomato plants in my garden and yet I haven't harvested a single, solitary tomato all season. The stupid squirrels are sure getting fat, though!

    I have noticed a marked increase in traffic on my commute in the past few days. Even the early morning leg where I rarely see any cars! I think it's school related.

    I used to think that cell phones weren't that big of a deal, and that people would adapt ... but basically every day at any given intersection, I'll wonder why a driver is behaving oddly (generally not proceeding or reacting to things), and they're on a cell phone. I think we may have pushed two notches *past* our ability to attend. Hmmm... what would interfere with their reception? I want one for my bike...

    Around here things have gotten a little crazier - but I think it's just the normal transition from "summer people" to the collge crowd. (The summer drivers are very above average.) It's those folks down from Chicago causing the trouble, I'm sure :-)

    Not much different to report around here. School has finally started and I pass by three elementary schools on my commute. Seems to be a few more vehicles packing the little booger pickers off to soccer practice after school, but it isn't too bad.
