No. Everything in that thread is being reported to my priest.

What makes you think "Random Postings" is exempt from being reported about?  For all I know, you have already reported me to my priest.

A motorist was driving along the freeway late at night. There were no other cars about, so he put his foot down and was doing 'km/h when he was pulled over by a traffic cop.

The cop got off his bike, strolled across and said: "Look sir, this is the end of my shift for the day and I just want to get home for supper. I don't want to do all the paperwork involved in arresting you, so if you can give me just one good excuse for speeding I'll forget about it."

"Certainly, officer," said the motorist. "You see, last week my wife ran off with a traffic cop and when I saw your blue light in my rear-view mirror I thought for one dreadful moment you were trying to catch me to give her back."

The cop put away his note-book and said: "Have a safe drive home."



Is this a Canadian joke? Do Canadians call highways freeways? I'm stuck on the "km/h".

Girl cant tell a multi-national joke...

Its actually South African...

South Africa has cops?
Someone has to abuse the black people.

But oftentimes the cops in South Africa are black.

Indeed.

Ignoring the km/h, but freeway is even used here in the U.S. although it's not synonymous with highway. I'm not sure what makes it different, but I remember the signs saying "freeway ends in X miles."

I thought "freeway" was just Californian for "highway". Are they actually different things?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controlled-access_highway

they are all somewhat synonymous things...


A controlled-access highway is a highway designed for high-speed vehicular traffic, with all traffic flow and ingress/egress regulated. Common English terms are freeway and motorway. Terms in other languages include Autobahn, autostrada, autopista, autosnelweg and autoroute. It can be referred to less precisely as highway or with more precise terms such as expressway, Interstate, or parkway. They may also be called limited-access highways, although this term can also refer to a class of highway with somewhat less isolation from other traffic.

I watched part of the Semifinals today but unfortunately it's too late around here so I became sleepy. I'm going to watch Finals at some bar. Hopefully we cand find a suitable bar. Eurovision isn't that popular here.

Too bad that Finnish songs usually suck. The Belgian song seemed nice this year.

I dreamt last night that I was at some unnamed monastic retreat with a number of people from high school. While there, I learned that my father had spent his youth at, of all places, the Saint Herman of Alaska Monastery in Platina, California. Surprised at this revelation, I sought to reach - by email, no less - its abbot, a Father Chrysostomos, but to no avail. It was upon awaking that I realized that this Fr. Chrysostomos was seemingly meant to be Fr. Damascene, the monastery's actual abbot, with my sleeping mind having somehow failed to recall his real name.

Considering that I haven't thought about anything related to any of that in quite a few months, it was a little odd. Still, probably a better dream than most.

Today in my art class the instructor shared a drawing a classmate did of a reference photo that was handed out in class.   It was the domes of an Orthodox church.  The domes had crosses on them.  But, the instructor kept calling it a mosque.   Even after I said it was a church.  And, the other students called it a mosque.   >:(

That's unfortunate. I've heard domes equated with Islam too many times. I remember being in a tour of a mosque once, and the guide told us how domes are how you tell a mosque, and that Islam effectively started the whole dome thing. Given my location, I didn't correct him. ;)

Just found out today that my boss was fired. No one knows why, and none of the higher ups are even willing to tell us. My (now former) boss doesn't even know. It's a real bummer, she was a great manager and I really liked working for her. Now we're all nervous about the change and wondering if we're going to start losing our jobs too. :(

We don't use the term "freeway" in these here parts and we look with great suspicion on anyone who attempts to do so.

The other thing I still have a very hard time NOT saying.....

'off the 78, near Berkley Heights'

This is so wrong people will stop and correct you loudly...and often....

'off 78'



Except saying things such as the 90 is the correct and prefered usage to any sane person :-)

I really don't enjoy hearing the neighbor's TV.

What are you they watching tonight?  :D
We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!
