I have that same fear, so I'm right there with you. I've been in two bad car accidents over the last two years, and since then I have this unbreakable fear whenever I get behind the wheel. I never used to have that fear, but since those accidents, I just can't get into a vehicle without feeling overwhelmed. I'm turning over ownership of my SUV to my brother when I move to Seattle, and will lease a new car, rather than buy like last time. But even now, I don't drive unless I have to, and mostly carpool with friends whenever I get a chance.

Damn,, that always happens - the drunks get little injury because of the alcohol that makes them relax in a crash

Well without the proof from a breathalyzer... this is all hearsay, innocent untilnproven guilty and all that right?


Used to come into work tired and people would say I 'looked drunk' but doesn't mean I was.

Well, today marks my final two weeks at my job. Come March 11th, I'll be out of a job. On March 15th, I start sending off my things to Seattle, and by the 24th, I'll be saying my final Aloha to this state. It's been swell, but I need to move on with my life before I find myself in my 30s, wondering why I basically wasted the later half of my twenties in a place that I never wanted to be in, in the first place.

saw b and s back in the day, such a great live show. you wouldn't tell by their studio stuff, but they rock live. check out bbc sessions if you doubt me.

new yo la tengo sucks though.

and i find it hard to believe they can be hipsters if they both have been around for almost 20 years, over for tengo. and they are playing in one of the biggest venues in pittsburgh.

Although I will grant you, def a hipster show. I expect all of lawrenceville to be there.

I was just kidding. I like B&S quite a bit, not as much anymore though. I wasn't impressed with the new Yo La Tengo album, either, honestly. Aside from a few good tracks, it was lackluster.

Another snow day again, however, I don't mind missing some time at my practicum. Ready for school to end and a permanent job to begin.

Actually, considering the post content on page 1, I have to say I'm quite stunned we are still here 10 yrs and 8000 pages later.

Just imagine for one nano second there was no Internet.

No internet? Then...

I'd get to catch up on my reading,
I'd get to catch up on my TV shows,
I'd get to catch up on my movies,
I'd get to spend more time enjoying life,
I wouldn't have my addiction to the net,
I wouldn't stress over stupid articles I read,
I wouldn't have my addiction to my iPhone,
I wouldn't have to argue with idiots,
I wouldn't have to read short-hand texts,

I would be... happier.

I agree to an extent.

You'd also have to buy porn.

Maybe when I move, I'll actually take the time to find that... and hook up my cable, and internet, and setup my tv.

I want to get out more... and when I say get out, I mean without having my phone with me all the damn time, lol.
