I think they must have added the 55 mph speed limit recently, because I can't remember I-35 being lesser then 65 mph in Austin. Either that or it's usually always traffic there, so it was never a problem.
I was obviously caught in a speed trap, since there were many other cars that were pulled over earlier, according to my coworkers, but I just happened to have missed the cop cars and other signs (like everyone else being 55 mph). Sigh. There goes $163.
But it's okay, the Universe have been really generous to me lately. In fact, I got a Kitchenaid Mixer! I had a traditional registry that most people ignored in favor of the honeyfund. But if I was only going to put one thing there, it would've been the Kitchenaid Mixer. Also, Tom Booker got us the Ice-cream attachment!
I am so excited about the Mixer!
Baking to commence!
This reminds me of the Sex In The City episode where Carrie said, "I've never been married or had a baby shower, when do I get gifts??" Then invited her friend to a party of one, where she registered for just one pair of shoes. Her friend sent it :)
Today was offsite with the team at blazer tag, where I did pretty good. I came in 10th the first time, and 7th the second time in a party of 22.
And I'm going to the Glee-sing-a-long tonight. So the day got better after the speeding ticket. Which I think was also the Universe telling me to chill.
