For the record...  
This will be the year I get my driver's license. Watch out.*

*So far, the only victim has been one squirrel, but it was his own damn fault.

Moment of Silence
A moment of silence for our fallen mammalian friend...the squirrel. For reasons we cannot fully understand he has decided to use poor Mary Ellen as the machine of his demise. I have a theory that all roadkill stem from suicidal little creatures without the opposable thumbs required for writing a suicide note. He was probably a very troubled squirrel. Perhaps he forgot where he hid all those nuts and was about to get kneecapped by the squirrel mafia. Who knows...but don't feel bad dudette, it was his time. (cue elton john and the circle of life)

It was him or me, really.

When you take your test, this works EVERY time. Flip the person a fiver. I think they must get paid crap and love a little extra income. Just think about it, how do you think all those bad drivers get on the road? Fivers. That's the only way to explain it.

And it's not to say you are a bad driver, it's just... assurance that you will pass.

If the five dollar thing doesn't work or if you just don't have a five to spare, something that actually worked for me was to have a clean car. Though I can't really vouch for that comment, it may have been more of my ability to drive without fucking up rather than the cleanliness of my car, but in either case the guy who was testing me spent the entire time talking to me about how clean my car was and how he sometimes feels bad for having to fail little old ladies. We pretty much just had a conversation the whole time as I drove him to walmart and then back up the norwich main strip and laughed a little when I backed over the curb on my 3 point turn- the only mistake I made on the driving part of the exam. My point though is to not have a trash heap in your car and to just relax...and bend your knees. If there's one thing I've learned from playing any sport it's always bend your knees.

Well, if I take my test in my dad's truck, there's not a lot of room to be messy in. Thanks for the tip!
