Oooh, traffic lights go from red to yellow...
Today, I witnessed traffic lights go from green to yellow to red, then back to yellow.

I was driving back home from Lady's house (well, stopped at Giant for butter that my mom wanted), and saw the light change to yellow, then red, and was like, oh fudge... more waiting. And then, was surprised to see the light turn back to yellow.

..ok, that sounded much more interesting in my head. Nevermind.

Other highlights of the night included....

Learned/witnessed the art of baking cookies from scratch. o.O following the chocolate chip recipe posted on the back of the chocolate chip packet though.

Things to note:
Butter/margine needs to sit outside and soften.
mixing eggs in, one at a time? o.O
Adding flour, a spoonful each time...

and erm... that's 'bout it. Well, seeing Lady, of course. Fixed her strange printer problem.

Drop off midi adaptor for Lady's dad (test it first.)
finish converting the rest of the EC site. XP

[edit] traffic lights were blinking yellow/red - at 12:30. Which was the cause of the red to yellow change.

Whoa...I think the traffic light thing is kinda cool too. I always wondered about that...well, I'm not exactly sure what about that I wondered, but yeah...definitely crazy.

hehe, actually, I just realized I forgot to say that it had turned 12:30 exactly, and the traffic lights switched over to blinking red/yellow.

traffic lights do that in iceland, go yellow red yellow. the reason that we theorized is that a lot more people there drive cars with manual transmissions, and that makes it easier for them to sit at the light in neutral because they have time to shift into gear when the light changes.

lights in moco also do that at a certain time of night when it's time for them to become yellow and blinking. that happened to me once.

Oh, yeah, should have noted that I stayed there for a bit, and then realized that yes, it had just turned 12:30 exactly, and the traffic lights switched to blinking red/yellow.
