I passed!

Just to let you know, I passed my Driving Theory Test. Multiple choice score --100% (50 total questions) and hazzard awareness, 62 out of 74-- a 43 was needed to pass!
Okay, I'm bragging and celebrating! Thanks for your well wishes and prayers. Now on to the driving test!--much harder!

L... is for looser....

Has any one heard the song... 'she was lookin kindof dumb, with her finger and her thumb, in the shape of an L on her forhead.' (I think the song is called Allstar) The chorus goes ' Hey now, you're an allstar, get your game on, go play! Hey now your an allstar....'

Anyway, that is me... well my car actually. To explain. In an attept to a.) be legal, and b) lower our insurance $2000.00. I am currently taking driving lessons. I have a learner permit and the law here says that anyone that has a learner permit must display large 'L' plates, prominitealy displayed on the back... and the front of the car!

So I now drive, but only with these 'Loser' plates on the car, and can only drive with a driver who has a license for 3 years. So, since I only have a few friends here, I can only ride w/ my husband.

Any one that tries to learn to drive on the wrong side of the road should never..., ever... do so with their husband.

Anyway, I digress. I have studied for the theory test-- which numerous people have said I might fail, but really my IQ is sufficent, and I've studied enough that I don't forsee that as an issue. I do know a mentally retarded girl that passed, although I was told that was before they made the test harder.... anyway.. the test will be 55 questions of which I must only answer 5o correctly. Please kill me if I do not pass, as I shouldn't have been able to pass my master's degree oral exams with such limited mental facilities.

So, I also have a driving instructor, who is £21 pounds an hour-- roughly $42.
He is stretching it out to make money on me I fear. Really I feel blessed, because I haven't hit anyone, although it isn't for lack of trying. One elderly lady at the church informed me that she and George (her cat) would be staying in until I finished learning to drive.

Oh, and after I pass the test... get this... I must wear large 'R' plates for a year that limit me from driving over 45 miles an hour.

Terrible Blogger...

Okay, I'm a terrible blogger. I guess I've been really busy. Thanks to those who ask for info on my life. It made me feel good. Actually I feel cut off from the world. I feel a long way away, and really miss you all so much! I know you are there and that comforts me, but with the five hour time diff (more for you deb) it is hard to find a time when I can call anyone. So I love you all, miss you all, and will try to blog better.
Oh, and why no pictures. Honestly....

I lost my camera.
The end.
