How do you say "Booo ringgg" in Japanese?

I went to Morikami Gardens today.

Now I know why for the twenty years I have had an affiliation with South Florida, neither my grandparents, nor I took myself there.

It's really boring. Pretty, fine, but I guess my threshold for Japanese gardening appreciation is around what htey have at the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia. Anything more (say, the mile-long path of boring trees and not-so-flowering bushes at Morikami) is just Zen overkill.

I'm just about done exploring things down here that I haven't done before, because if I didn't do them as a kid, chances are, there's a reason. Thing, after thing, after thing, after thing, I do, and all of them are: eh. Geez. It's like I'm on anti-depressants again.

Also: Why is everything in Palm Beach closed on Sundays?

Also: Why does Ohio State get a Motorcade to accompany its buses through the beach, and most importantly,WHY DO THEY GET TO RUN RED LIGHTS?
