You know, I hate traffic jams. Especially when people who normally go by bike or bus and train, now take the car because the weather is not so good.
What do you think...;)

O, that sucks. Those damned trains in Holland, it's just crap.
I like to be in a bicycle traffic jam though.

Our traffic jams consist of someone's cows getting out of the pasture and standing in the road. That's fun at 5:30am and it's still dark outside. We also get deer or wild turkeys crossing the roads early in the morning.

A couple of weeks ago a goat was in the middle of the road. She'd gotten off her chain and was going for the salt they used on the road for the ice. No one is front of me really stopped and she kept trying to head-butt the cars as they drove slowly by. Beerman knows the person who owns her and I always look for her as we drive by their barn. That day, I stopped and tried to get her back to the barn or in the corral but she was insistant on arguing with me. Finally, someone else driving by stopped at the neighboring farm and shortly the neighbor came over to help. At least I got to meet the goat! She's pretty cool!

Ever since I moved I avoid traffic completely. It's a 5-minute walk to the Metro, then a 20-minute ride right downtown. A long walk with lots of staircases later and I'm in the door at work! I miss seeing the sun, but it's quick.

Was it the reason why the coffees didn't arrive in Colombo earlier this week?;)

You received the coffee, Ahila. I got a confirmation of my subcontinental penguin (adm.nr.1206634), he got your signature. Don't mess with my company, just pay for it.

The subcontinental penguin probably got the signature from another Ahila, not me. I haven't had coffee the whole week nor tea, for that matter.:( If you did deliver by mistake to another address and not purposely ignore the order, I would like to order a good strong cup of black coffee right now, please. ;)
