A second out of phase 007

You know what I miss? Those opportunities to just go for it. Well, as Denton once observed, “You a little late on that one buddy, but thanks for the heads up.”

Jack in the Box opens in Overland Park today
“Get ready for this guy, Johnson County. Jack in the Box will begin serving jumbo breakfast platters (scrambled eggs, hash brown sticks, mini pancakes and bacon or sausage) and a whole host of other options to Johnson County residents in about 30 minutes.”

I know, it is going to be /)^ɛ^(\ so awesome!

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”

Orange barrel alert:
Major highway shutdown coming

     “If you travel I-435 near Quivira, take heed. Major weekend closing events are coming that will significantly alter traffic patterns.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, all eastbound lanes of I-435 from U.S. 69 to I-35 will be closed until 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 3. The entrance ramp from Quivira Road to eastbound I-435 will be closed at 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 30, to permit staging of construction equipment.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, all westbound lanes of I-435 will be closed from U.S. 69 to I-35 and will reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10. The entrance ramp from Quivira Road to westbound I-435 will be closed at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 7, to permit staging of construction equipment.

Construction crews are installing two underground concrete storm water drainage systems, which require tearing up I-435 and digging across the roadway. The highway lanes will be rebuilt in time for reopening the following Monday morning.

The highway closings are dependent upon weather.

Alternate routes include:

  • For eastbound I-435, detour via northbound I-35 to 87th Street to southbound U.S. 69 to eastbound I-435.
  • For westbound I-435, detour via northbound U.S. 69 to 87th Street, to southbound I-35 to westbound I-435; or southbound U.S. 69 to 119th Street, west to I-35, then north.

The work is part of a $102 million project to add auxiliary lanes to I-435 between U.S. 69 and Quivira Road. The improvements will help alleviate congestion at I-435 and U.S. 69 interchange.

The Kansas Department of Transportation is administering the project. Overland Park contributed $8 million toward construction costs.”

Oh My Gosh, Jalopnik, Oh My Gosh!”

Six baby squirrels rescued from BMW engine after wild track run
“It was like a scene out of The Great Escape this weekend at the BMW Car Club of America’s driving school. The driver of a Z4 M sports car felt his car behaving ‘squirrely’ on the track so he pulled into the pits.”

My Chevy Cavalier posted 28.069 miles per gallon or 8.349 liters per 100 kilometers at QuikTrip.

Summary of Improv Goals 007


In my performances last night, I felt that something was off. My friend Denton observed that I was trying too hard to make puns, so my listening was suffering.

As often as I do improv each week, one would assume that I would update the summary of my goals for my improv more often, and much time has passed since the last update.

My next performance in  the second season of the Next Big Improv Show is later next month.

With my sister Kimberly as a witness, I am driving the speed limit, but people on the highway have lately been aggressively passing my car; they at least use the turn signal.

Scientific breakthrough: Physicists at CERN have recorded particles moving faster than light
“Looks like Einstein may have been wrong — An international team of scientists at CERN has just announced that they’ve recorded neutrino particles traveling faster than the speed of light.”

If the event in any way resembles those in Steins; Gate, then we may cause for concern (see what I did there?).

“Watch the latest episodes of STEINS;GATE on Crunchyroll now. Steins; Gate follows an eclectic group of individuals who have the ability to send text messages to the past. However throughout their experimentation process, an organization named SERN who has been doing their own research on time travel…”
