I'm thrilled this place is back! I pretty much went black out on racing news with it gone...

Also, I passed my driving test with a 91! After only learning to parallel park the day before, and kind of sucking at it in-test in my mom's larger Rav 4. Finalllyyyy. Now I feel like a real adult.

ETA: And I just discovered that the "subsilver2" style layout looks quite a bit like the layout on the old site. Yesss.

Happiness is having to buy some new clothes ... in a smaller size!

That happiness is made even happier by the following formula:

Pants I really want in new size = $59.95

Special event with $20 off purchase of pant - $39.95

Reward check from store that has the pants - $40.00

Basically, the were free. And they fit. And they look very nice on.

But actually! I feel like a total sham, I keep remembering I'm qualified to drive alone and that seems so ridiculous. I have to keep telling myself it's all a matter of getting used to it and that I do, in fact, know how to drive and the rules of the road. My points off were relatively minor issues -- my parallel parking took some time (my mom's Rav 4 is WAY bigger than the sedan I learned in, so it took a lot more fiddling to get it right), and I took a corner a bit too quickly...which is odd, because I'm generally a granny driver. All in all, it went much better than I expected.

Also, pah. I would never drive in this cluster. Evanston and Skokie might see me behind the wheel, but I'll take the El anywhere south of Howard, thank you! :D

I got my driver's license at about 10am on my 16th birthday. That was about 24 years ago, and I can count on one hand the times I've had to parallel park since then :D

You'd think they'd just make that an option on their standard form.
