So that was weird

I was just cycling along the footpath (which is legal in my state), and almost got run over by an oncoming car, driving at full speed, ALSO along the footpath.

Car chase? There was no obvious pursuit. Maybe he was trying to escape the imaginary policemen in his head.

In other news, I think I just snubbed the Dean. Passed a vaguely-familiar looking woman just outside our department, who grinned at me like a manic shark. I gave her my best "I don't smile at strangers this early in the morning, you freak" glare uncertain half-smile back. Five minutes later, I NOW realise who it was. Oops.

Well clearly it was her fault for being so unmemorable, right?

this reminds me of the time I dropped a heavy door on the nun who is provost at catholic u because I'm not going to stand there an hold the door for a sour looking old lady in an ugly suit.

I'm with arbitrista, totally her fault for being unmemorable AND for grinning like a maniac shark. :)

I think that if it was morning, you can probably fall back on the 'pre-coffee cognition impairment' syndrome.

Oh good. Yes, totally her fault :) Or the fault of the coffee (lack of). Or both.
