    I don't hate women, thus the last comment. Jedi_Angell I thought you spent all your money on your car?

    No, I believe you- But our culture is lame and thinks stupid things are funny. Going by generalizations of each sex, putting up with men is far from easy as well. heh.

    Sorry, don't take me too personally, I just don't think it's funny. Seriously, no hard feelings, eh?

    Shhhhh....it makes me LOOK rich.
    [face_laugh] Identifying your prey as girls attracted to cars and money . . . Happy hunting! Though you might be better off looking for people searching deeper than appearances if you don't really have what you're presenting. ;)

    LOL, yeah, problem is there is this girl, she's way too good for me so I'm using any excuse I can as to why I should get her.

    Start off by faking being too good for her yet interested. ;)

    No hard feelings Zas. Humor is all relative anyway.

    Of course not, I'm just quoting a song. Plus the humor was that the day after I spent my life savings deposit's for our wedding my fiance called it off. So I joke that once I had no money she didn't need me.

    I've always wanted to marry for money...but when I actually had the chance I chickened out :p
    Money isn't everything I guess...

    So I'm driving how this evening (1130pm), minding my own business, rocking out to Jon Bon Jovi when suddenly and without warning an evil, malicious deer steps into my path. Now, being the veggie I am there was one thought that crossed my mind; What would hurt worse: The amount of money that it would cost to fix the damage, or the guilt of killing one of God's creatures? Oddly, the amount of money won. I swerved to the left to miss the deer only to notice that my back end was beating my front end around. I corrected the opposite direction to which I found myself going sideways! Off the side of the road I went, and down the hill (the swerving was thwarted by the very thin layer of frost that made the road to slick for my tires to grip. Evil frost). Now this wasn't any old hill mind you! This was the hill that is on the frontage road that goes over the Point of the Mountain (no, not the big one. The one next to it). My car traveled ten feet going 'forward' (or diagonal depending on how you look at it) then slid down the hill sidewise a good foot and half (hey, any sidewise slidding down a hill isn't good in my book). I grabbed the parking brake and prayed to about 5 different deities. Apparently one of them was listening because I stopped moving. After taking a personal inventory (My car wasn't hit! I'm alive! So is the deer!) I calmly pulled my cell phone out of my purse (read: savagely tore through my purse and hysterically called my daddy). I told him I was afraid to move my car because of the angle it was at and would he please come and do it for me.
    Now here is the funny part. I'm far enough of the road that he wasn't going to see me from the direction he was coming. I decided to get out of the car and wait by the side of the road so that he could find me. I climb out of the car, get to the road and look down at what I was wearing (I was in art student mode today and was dressed in nice long black slacks, black turtle neck sweater and three inch sling back heels, also black). Oh, did I mention it was dark? I pulled my Palm Pilot out of my purse and decided to flag him down with the light from the screen (I'm so tech savvy!). 15 minutes later I see him come over the hill, 30 seconds later I watched him blow passed me doing like, 45. My dad missed me. I stand there for the next 30 minutes waiting for him to realize he had gone to far and he needed to back track. In that time I watched a police car drive by too (mental note, keep all white outfit in car at all times from now on). The only 'car' to stop was a huge 18+ wheeler. Bless his heart he earns brownie points. His chain wasn't long enough to get me out though. Dad finally gets back (oh, I dropped my Palm Pilot on the road because I was shivvering so hard...it has issues now), takes one look at the car and says that we have to call a truck. But not now, in the morning.
    Ironically I have an appointment at the Saturn dealership tomorrow morning at 10am to have the oil changed. I think I'll have them take a look at the alignment as well.

    Yikes! Like everyone else I'm glad you didn't end up proving your worthiness by trading your own life for that of a confused deer.

    Oh yeah, and I just thought I'd share with you all my 1000th post!

    we are all very glad that you are alright Erin.

    As for the frost, I hate it as much as I hate ice. You all know my issues with ice.
