Yep. The wife said it went something like:

Deer.
Deer head in window.
Airbag in face.
Deer body under car.
Horn stuck on.
Stop car.

All in about an 1/8th of a second.

Still waiting to find out if they are going to total it

She wasn't hurt at all... but the airbags deploying were unpleasant for a number of reasons.

Holy crap Vortex. Bummer. Those critters started moving about with the warm spell. Stinkin' oversized rats. There's been too many car deer collisions recently.

Shitty about the deer / car. Trust you came out unscathed? You should head north for brunch sunday to commiserate.
Mmm, El Loro. I missed out on my weekly visit yesterday as I was out of town. Looking forward to next Thursday.

If you haven't already, you all owe it to yourselves to be in a vehicle when the airbags deploy. It sucks.

It does... in many ways.

It is adding likely-hood to a total... even though the only driveability issue (I think) is the crushed radiator.... how sad to think about totalling it. Sigh. We liked that little suv.

My wife was annoyed because she had freshly picked up dry cleaning in the car.... and now it is all full of airbag smoke. It really filled the cabin.

Even though she had bare arms, she did escape without any burns from the airbags... so that is good.

Still waiting on the estimate.
I wonder if that is a good sign, or a bad sign?

Too bad they didn't pick up this great idea....

Six Nations Rugby. England vs France at Twickenham.

Live broadcast on BBC America tomorrow, Saturday at 10.30 am.

Any interest? I'll be watching it. If you want to come and watch it, maybe have a breakfast bloody or beer, say so here.

I'm guessing there isn't much interest, but......

Sounds fun and I could bring a hammer if I weren't scheduled to watch pieces of wood roll down a track.

Hey pinewood derby is very cool!

Doesn't look like there's any interest in the rugger, but that's no surprise. So I'm not getting any beer in, 'cos after the game I'm going to play with power tools, and soldering irons and stuff like that.

Some people have no sense of adventure. Or something.

On the plus side, I just checked my propane tank gauge, and this house sucks rather less fuel than the old farmhouse used to, on account of the new house having insulation, and a lot less gaps.

And I went and stood in my shed. It was awesome. It'll be even more awesomer soon. I think April will be a month of quite good activity, shed construction wise.

Good job none of you showed up. The game is next week. Heh.

Hope England are on top of their game better than I am.

So OK this gives us a week to prepare. If'n anyone wants to come over for breakfast NEXT weekend let me know. If there's interest I'll grill a breakfast, and we'll have bloodies and beer chasers. That way, if I'm still off about the game it won't matter because we'll have food.

Whew. I had considered making the trek, but I was woken up around five am by firefighters and had that craptastic on/off sleep afterwards for several hours. It appears some genius down the hall passed out with a pizza in the oven. No damage, just bad smells and loudness.

I may be up for it next week, I haven't watched rugby for a long time, but did quite a bit in university, had a couple of roommates who played and we even had a game for the playstation.
