Last night on my way to TKD (running late) I noticed my back tire was flat. The one that I had replaced on Sunday. Damnit. So we put it in the car and headed over to Trek. I love that place. They saw me right away, replaced the tube with one that has magic slime in it…and at no extra cost to me. Now that is service. Not like those haughty machinery row people or those willie street slackers. Trek is so friendly, reasonable prices, polite, quick and reliable. Is there any question where you should go to get quality bike treatment? Any at all?
So I didn’t go to TKD. Tonight have to go to work from 2:00 to 9:00 to help with a picnic event. I plan on riding my bike to work and then having the DH pick me up later downtown. Apparently I can’t ride bike home, even with my bike light. Of course it will probably rain so it’s probably a good idea.
I need to go and get some stamps in a few minutes here after I get off the phone with the DH.
Other things on my mind.
Taking driving lessons from Four Lakes Driver Training School. I need actual driving time to get used to being in a vehicle that is the number one cause of accidental death in the United States. I need my effing license to relieve this unconscious stress I have of worrying about how I am going to get to places, working around Tim’s schedule, recreational things, doctors appointments, work things, etc . I can’t rely on Tim with his new job to work around work when the car is sitting in the driveway….unused. I should call right now and get some info…
There…it’s $48 dollars an hour. About 10 hours would be needed for a n00b like me. They pick me up and drop me off. Private lessons. Will do a session on manual at the end in my car if I want. Open spaces available now. In fact, she said “how about next Tuesday?”
I was like “WHOA lady. Too fast. I don’t even have my damn permit renewed!”
She said that if it’s within a year then it’s only 5 bucks to renew…need to go check…
Damn. It expired 5-12-05.
God I am such an idiot. It would have been so much easier to just renew and then dick around then have to take the stupid test all over again. *cry* Now to figure out when, what time, study, how to get there, fuckity fuck.
and …. Home Improvement Classes through MATC: Eletrical, Carpentry, and Plumbing every Thursday 6:00 – 9:00PM from 9/14 to 10/5 for a total of 78 bucks. I call that worth it! Knowledge is power (and a money saver!)
