Driving = good. Crash = bad.

Well, first crash GET! Yup, had my first crash in the car on Friday. I’m fine, the car is mostly fine. All-in-all, I’m lucky to have got off so lightly. I’m going to take the car in for repairs this evening.

Mother’s day was nice, although I look forward to the day when my mum has a job that isn’t quite so hard on her. Took Mum, Dad, Nana, and Pop out to see Kingdom of Heaven on Saturday night. Wasn’t too bad, actually. Orlando Bloom’s character came up with some tricky siege warfare ideas, which I was impressed with.

  1. I’ve been in 3 near car crashes and they were fearsome enough let alone actually crashing.
    I find it hurts financially more than any physical or emotional damage.
    I hope your wallet is well endowed.

  2. Hope you’re OK and not too shaken?

    We’ve bought a little Fiat 500 to run about in over here, but Louisa had to learn manual so she could drive it. We’ve had a few scary moments…

    If you can get back in the saddle soon you shouldn’t lose out in the confidence stakes.

  3. Yeah, I’me fine, and not shaken at all. The only reason I had the accident was that I was being overconfident and looking at a street directory while driving. So it’s a strong lesson against overconfidence. :)

  4. No. It’s a direct quote.

    “This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless.”

  5. Dude, you were reading a directory while driving? There is a word for that, and it has little to do with confidence… you are CRAZY!

    Remember, traffic lights are for reading street directories. Open roads are for drinking, texting and fornicating.
