Geese X-Ing

So I fibbed a bit. I really haven't been back around, have I?

We're still in the midst of recording our EP and a lot of other crap is going on in my life that is taking up a lot of time and energy. I've decided that I will be taking a little bit longer of a break from blogging. It makes me sad, but I don't want to continue half-a$$ing it. Once recording is finished and I get my life back in order, I will be back on here regularly, sharing and reading about delicious foods and other such projects.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a story with all of you that I knew you could appreciate.

I was on the highway the other day, heading to Andrea's house. It was on 93 North, somewhat close to Lowell.

So I'm cruising at around 70mph when all of a sudden, I see a ton of cars in front of me come to an abrupt halt. I kinda slammed on my brakes... Well, I kept pumping my foot on the brake pedal rather than slam it all the way down because I have this terrible fear that the guy behind me is going to come crashing into my rear.

So I keep getting closer and closer to the car in front of me and it was making me very nervous because my brakes aren't the best. At the last second, I stop just in time, leaving a comfortable space between my car and the other's car's rear bumper.

I'm all panick-stricken and aggravated. I HATE when cars just slow down and stop from 70-0. See, my car just can't do that so easily. I have to slow down a good deal before I can totally stop.

As soon as I get there, the cars start picking up the pace again, continuing on their journey down the highway. I turn my head, thinking I'm going to see a broken down car or a statie or some such when, much to my surprise, I see little feathered friends waddling into the woods.

It was a goose with her baby goslings!

Immediately a grin appeared on my face as I shouted, 'Geese crossing!' (Mike was in the car with me, I'm not that effin' weird.)

It truly did make my day and completely erase the fear and frustration I had from almost crashing into the car in front of me. Cute, little geese were just trying to get across the road.

But the part that REALLY made me happy was that all the people stopped for 'em. This isn't like an elk coming at your window. If you run over a coupla birds they won't be fine, but your car will. So I feel these people were stopping out of the goodness of their hearts.

And that set the mood for my day. :)

You're still effin' weird, but you're cute too. I wish I had a better view of them. I only got to see them for a split second.


VeggieGirl said...

Yikes!! Thank goodness that you weren't hurt on the highway, and that the geese were okay too :0)

Mihl said...

Take all the time you need and good luck with your EP recording. And please get your car checked someday soon, that doesn't sound good.

I read the exact same thing on your Live Journal! Hahaha!

VeggieGirl said...

I saw your comment on my blog - blondies DO have the same texture as brownies, minus the chocolate/carob flavor. They taste more "vanilla-y" (like vanilla fudge or something). Quite divine, if you ask me :0)

Aww... What a cute story!

Hope you get everything in order and calmed down soon, but no rush, we're not going any where. :)

Vegan_Noodle said...

Hope the recording is going well, I'm sure it can be a long, draining process!

So cool that people stopped for geese. I"m afraid down in Texas people would get out their guns and shoot em. (okay it's not that bad....)

Celine said...

this is so touching! I probably would have burst into tears for joy that people aren't necessarily evil, you know it. ;)

Liz² said...

hee, I can just imagine you shouting "geese crossing!". I'm glad you and the birds are okay!

ChocolateCoveredVegan said...

Aw aww aww! The geese are so cute. I would've stopped for them too :o)

Rural Vegan said...

Aww, what a great story. I'm so glad people stopped - I've seen plenty of people who don't and I always get out of my car and shoo them across. Good luck finishing your EP, can't wait to hear it!

vegetalion said...

there are always traffic jams when I'm trying to get out of boston (that's because I tend to do so on friday nights) - from now on I'll make my mood better by pretending it's goslings in my way rather than people headed to the cape.

Ruby Red Vegan said...

Awww, what a happy happy story!

It seems like recording is going well, so keep being productive and happy and we'll be here for you when you get back. :)

aTxVegn said...

I love that story. Since I work 8 to 5, I encounter heavy traffic and bad drivers twice a day - it's incredibly frustrating. I hardly ever feel happy by the time I get to the office - you were lucky!

THat would have definitely put me in a good mood also. Hooray for those helpful people. Sometimes people really do come around. I wonder though, if they went home and had chicken for dinner.

vko said...

Hope springs eternal- that's so nice to hear about the geese, too damn cute.

What a nice story! Cute picture, too :)

bazu said...

Aw, those geese are too cute!
I've missed seeing you in the blogosphere, but I hope your summer and your recording are both going splendidly!

It's been too long since I've been here! I see that life is treating you beautifully and I'm glad to see that. Take care of yourself, you hear?!

Can't wait til you update!

Digital Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I wonder when we will finally hit the rate of $0.01 to 1 Gigabyte.

I'm eagerly anticipating the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 terabyte harddisk . But for now I guess I will be happy with having a 16 gig Micro SD in my R4i.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
