Do people even have to take a driver's exam anymore? I like to think of myself as a proficient driver - I have spent enough time behind the wheel to feel that I know what I am doing. And believe it not, I studied the driver's exam book before I took the test. You know, so I could LEARN the material? Like the LAWS of DRIVING? This is a constant issue for me. People do not know how to drive.

1. Use your turn signal. That knob isn't there for decoration.
2. Learn what 'yield' means.
3. Be courteous. You cause more accidents being a selfish asshole than if you would just let someone over when they signal (!) they would like to change lanes.

I like to think that it will get to the point where I can't stand it anymore. I will then put my plan of revenge into action by getting a job at the DMV to give Driver's Exams.

And thank you, Wheeling Island Racetrack and Gaming Center. Now that you have installed slot machines, not only does my morning commute have to put up with the normal asshole BMW, Audi and Hummer drivers going 25 miles over the speed limit, but I also have to put up with the blue hairs in their Cadillacs barely pushing 45. Thanks!

And finally, the pretty side of planning a wedding. I can't believe how hypocritical people are about religion. SO WHAT if I am not getting married in a church? I am still being married by a minister. Yes, my wedding will be blessed and YES I do believe in the 'sacrament' of marriage! I believe it is a PRIVATE agreement/relationship between a HUSBAND and WIFE that should remain private. No, I do not believe it is the money-grubbing scheme that the a) bridal industry and b) the Catholic church make it out to be. Yes, I love Bill beyond words. Yes, I want to spend the rest of my life with him. And frankly, our marriage would be no different if we got married at the JOP, in a chapel in Vegas, at the beach, or in a church. So :P

Don't pick up the sword if you aren't prepared to duel.
