Two interesting things happened to me this morning (three, if you count the dream I had last night wherein we got about two feet of snow and it was all Keman's fault.) First: On the ramp from I-95N to I-95N/I-495 at the Springfield Interchange, I saw a minivan with a license plate 'CFORUS'. Not interesting? It is when you consider that I also saw it at the same place yesterday morning. Two mornings in a row, in a high-traffic area is somewhat interesting.

The second is not so much 'interesting' as 'I would have been sooooo pissed off if it had happened.' I'm driving down Franklin street in Alexandria, approaching an intersection at which the cross-traffic had a stop sign, but I did not. As I approach the intersection, doing appx. 25mph (+/- a few mph) on the wet pavement, a LandRover starts to cross the intersection, apparently not realizing that I did not have a stop. I stomped on the brakes, my ABS system kicked in because of the wet pavement, and I stopped about a foot away from ramming into him. I don't think he tried stopping or accelerating to get out of the way, either. Gah.
