LJ + Firefox = Weird and a little more

Apparently "LJ devs know about the wonky comment behavior in FF. It'll be fixed soon, no word on when." (according to a support volunteer). It's been driving me mad, the flickers and redraws and extra spaces in the comment boxes, argh! At least they'll fix it eventually.

As some of you know I live on a busy street. There was an accident tighton (drunk driver, boo) just east of us. I called 911 and Mr. M. to be useful. The cops and fire engines arrived fairly quickly, and I noticed that idiot drivers continued to try to drive through. So I started directing them to turn off at the previous corner. They looked confused but complied. Eventually, the emergency vehicles blocked off the street and even the dumbest drivers figured out they could not get through.

How did I think of directing traffic? I was inspired by that story about Sean Astin directing traffic in NY during the blackout. I'm more like him than I usually care to admit.

*giggles* Well done. See, even Sean has his useful sides, he inspires people do do good things ;-)

Or maybe you just have common sense.

He's a good guy, just kinda needs to shut up sometimes.

You found me out! I totally was doing the Astin helicopter thing! And I'm sure they thought I was crazy :-)
