I'm still at the point where it is really exciting for me to go *run errands* in the car... it's great to be able to be enthused about things like running over to Long's to get toilet paper! (Oh Boy, Oh Boy!!! I'm driving the car *all by myself*!!!)
I know, I'm a dork.*
So anyway, today I was driving along running errands... besides the Almighty Longs (it's giant... seriously, that's why I call it that) I went to Traderjos, over in Emeryville. I was listening to the remake of Teardrops ("Footsteps on the dancefloor - Reminds me, baby, of you...") and bopping along in my car, when someone got in front of me in a dark blue Cadillac, and proceeded to *crawl* along. My, it was irritating!
Eventually the car turned off and I realized I'd been behind an actual old lady... and *I found it irritating*! I think this means I am finally graduating beyond the "drives like an old lady" stage to real regular street driving... though I'm not totally there yet either. For one thing, I still refuse to speed... and I also always use my turn signals! (I am also in the habit of driving with headlights all the time - I want to be visible, and the BF, who is very safety conscious, has convinced me it's a good idea.)
So. A good afternoon!
*Speaking of being a dork... it's not like I think that's a bad thing. If you're on tribe, I invite you to come by my favourite tribe: *Sexy Dork*! It can be found at sexydorks.tribe.net.
