At the corner of 35 and 35

Oh good grief. Living in the Dallas area for most of my entire life, I've always loved the Red River Shoot-Out between OU and UT.

Ok, except of the past nine years I've lived at the corner of Interstate 35E and Interstate 35W. Now, I think it is pretty bizarre that we have two I-35s, but that is a whole other thing. Denton is smack dab in the middle of the sparring universities.

Most Longhorns will take 35E directly into Dallas from Austin, however, every Okie under the sun comes through Denton, oh let's say, about the same effing time I was this afternoon!!!! I'm assuming that they all decided to leave at lunchtime today to avoid the rush hour traffic. Ha. I laugh in your faces.

Both boys had early release from school today (sounds like prison or something, doesn't it?) and I decided to treat them to a late lunch/early supper at a restaurant in the neighboring town that has nickel video games. So, I opt to take 35 around instead of hitting all the lights going through town.

*smacking self on forehead* STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

Every effing Sooner with a little maroon car flag was clogging up my Texas interstate on their way to Dallas to get drunk tonight. A drive that would normally take me about five minutes took closer to 30. So, I get off and go the long way down the backrounds and finally escaped the effed upness that is Okie driving.

Now, I apologize if you're an Okie and you're a good driver. You must stay in Oklahoma, cuz the Okie idiots that drive on our roads are bordering on too stupid to get a driver's license.

So, I love my bedroom community 51 weeks per year. It is that first Saturday every October that makes my blood boil.

With that said, Go Longhorns! Kick Zero U's collective ass!!!! And, next time, Okies - take I-75 and clog up the McKinney traffic instead of ours!

    You know, I may be a Sooner, but I live in a little bedroom community just south of Norman and right off of I-35 myself and I have to allow at least 10 extra minutes when going home from Thursday afternoon through Saturday morning. (And I never remember that first time until I merge onto I-35 south, slap myself in the forehead and swear.) Unfortunately, I need I-35 to go anywhere outside my neighborhood and I can only get home going I-35 southbound. Yep-it stinks. And home game days aren't much better. (Sorry for rambling here, you just touched a very familiar nerve.)

    Oh, I bet that is bad for you. Going north today was a bitch as all the Okies were heading back.

    last night I went to Dallas and it was crazy. In one little area with five tables, there were two Okie tables, two Longhorn tables and me with LabKat and another friend. :)
