egads… O_O

next weekend the parents and sisters (well, the sisters go to ocean city starting this weekend, to stay with aunt, uncle, and cousin) go off to ocean city for the weekend. so, that leaves me all alone at home. can you say “party”? ~_^

this means i’ll have to drive myself to work. this would not be a big to-do except for two small things:

– i haven’t really driven a car in over a year

– and the car that i’ll have to drive myself to work is our saturn. which is a stickshift. which i have never driven before.

so, within a week, i’ve got to figure out how to drive all over again, and how to drive stickshift. ^^;;

so tonight i drove myself and dad off to hollywood video. with only ever using a stickshift once before (except for a quick orientation i had a few days ago). it was quite the harrowing experience. O_O

at least when i drove tonight it was wet, nighttime, and traffic-y. when i drive myself to work it will be hopefully dry, daytime, and traffic-y. but the dry and daytime makes up for it being trafficy. and when i drive myself back it will be hopefully dry, nighttime, and non-traffic-y. so the non-traffic makes up for the night. ^^ yes. ^^;;;

  1. aww, poor glenn. I feel your pain. Meaghan gave me one lesson of stick about a year and a half ago, and it was rather harrowing. not rainy and wet and dark, but trafic-y; and I stalled out about 10 times (no exaggeration) at a stop light. Me, the first car, and about 45 ka-skillion cars behind me. o.O Just go find a parkinglot this week and practice 1st to 2nd, and reverse to 1st. Once you get that down, the rest is a fuzzy banana. And don’t shift from 5th to 3rd without going through 4th! ^_~

    • well, then, how about going from 2nd to 5th when you accidentally mean to go to 3rd? ~_^ i did that by accident… ^^;;

      and i don’t want a fuzzy banana! i want to learn to drive stickshift! ~_^
