New House!
We're mostly moved into nugget's new house. There's a few things still at the apartment... I'll probably grab a bit on my way home every day. The servers will be there 'til there's DSL at the new house. It's nice there, but the drive into work sucks. 183 needs to be finished, and something needs to be done about the 183 - Anderson Mill intersection. It took me 15 minutes to get to 183, and 20 minutes to go the rest of the way to work. With minimal traffic, it would be 5 minutes to 183, 15 minutes for the rest of the trip. There's just something wrong with that.

Boomer sure looks comfortable!

I wonder how the drive would be if you go through the neighborhood to Spicewood Springs road. From there of course, you can take the Best Road in Austin to 360. :)

I was going to try that tomorrow morning. I've already decided the neighborhood is the way home during rush hour. If that route gets me to Mopac in less than ~20, 25 minutes, it's the way to go.

Yeah, that back route is definitely the way to go. It's bizarre that there would be such a delay just trying to turn right from Anderson Mill to 183, but there sure is.

It's the people going strait in the right lane. That intersection needs a dedicated right turn lane. *sigh* Austin road designers...

There used to be one, but it was pretty un-necessary before they changed anderson a bit further down so that the left lane merges into the right lane.

I like to go straight in the right lane and go REALLY SLOW hoping that people will get the idea that maybe they should leave the right lane for people turning.

183 needs to be finished

Yup. I got pulled over there by a cockknob on a motorcycle fine upstanding Austin Police Officer for "merging too close to the barrels."

What is merging too close to the barrels? *sigh*

^ rhetorical question, in case I didn't make that obvious.

*calls to the corner* ...but it was a benign retaliation!

*peeks out from under her hair*

You sure? It's ok?

Yep. It's ok!=) I'm not a journal stalker!

Hi!

It is exciting to me that I know what you are talking about! What is the best way to reach you? You can keep me updated at dmasy@starband.net. I know the next 3 days are your long ones....what does Boomer do to keep himself awake?
