Tree down!

One of those things I managed to capture in a non-dramatic way, but whatever.
See where that tree is on the ground?  Usually that’s a side road.

You can see where the road turns to join Interstate, but is crossed by a tree.

There’s a signpost in the midst of the mess too.

Initially I thought someone made a drunk driving turn and ended up on this side of the street and ran into the tree.  However, additional observation caused me to conclude that someone was traveling in this direction on Interstate, lost control of their car (probably drunk) and veered into the median where the tree and sign were, clobbering it.  Then the sped off through the DMV parking lot, leaving skid marks.
No matter how hard I thought, I couldn’t remember exactly where the tree had been.

Three sentence movie reviews: An Officer and a Gentleman

Part of the Ruby Oliver Film Festival

From a feminist perspective, this was interesting viewing, as you get the traditional fairy tale* story and also the feminist tale of a woman striving to break glass ceilings.  Of course, the feminist story is merely a subplot, but I’ll take it.  The sex scenes were pretty hot and overall it went in directions I didn’t think it would go, so I was pretty happy with this flick.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

*I knew the ending of this before I started watching it, due to it being referenced fairly often as a “good movie ending”
