Today’s newspaper had a kind of wrap-up story on the accident, summarizing the results of the state police investigation, which was released yesterday.
Fatal wreck blamed on driver inattention and excessive speed
I’m really sad to learn that the driver of the other car was going too fast, because I know it will cause people to think she was irresponsible and that’s going to hurt her family. She was a good kid, though, and did something that lots of people do. People speed a lot on that stretch of road – it’s a downhill straightaway that sweeps into a curve, and it’s easy to pick up speed.
Today I stayed home with a nasty case of the queasies, so I guess the coughing yesterday may not have been steak-in-lungs related after all. I’m really bummed that I couldn’t make it in, because I was supposed to go to a work thing tonight involving miniature golf and go-carts, neither of which I’ve dabbled in since I was roughly ten years old. I’m sure I would suck at both but I wanted to play! I’d really been looking forward to this.
Here’s something else I’m looking forward to from my childhood, though – Netflix is shipping The Brave Little Toaster for this weekend. It’s one of our favorite movies from when we were little, and my sisters and I are all really excited about it getting here. Sam’s been singing songs from the movie all week.
I just hope it doesn’t turn out like Animaniacs, though. We thought that was the funniest thing on TV when we were younger, and kept clicking around the old cartoon channels looking for it. Finally, it showed up on NickToons, and we got all excited and TiVoed a bunch of them. I don’t know if they don’t stand up to the test of time, or if they’ve been edited, or if the network is only showing weaker episodes, but they weren’t nearly as funny the second time around.
I think The Brave Little Toaster will be okay, though. Sure, it’s Disney, but it’s by the same director as Toy Story, and the voice cast was awesome, and we just completely loved this movie. It was right up there with The Chipmunk Adventure.
Yeah, I’m really showing my age today.
So that’s what’s going on. Oh, and by the way, daytime television is really sucky.
