Mr. Cellophane

In a location adjacent to a place in a city of some significance, what comes out of my head is plastered on the walls of this blog.

Just another day.

Practiced parallel parking today. A nice follow-up to last Thursday's 3-point turns lesson (which, interestingly enough, the snow had no effect on).

Isn't it silly: worrying about things like this and then getting them done and realizing how ridiculous it is to worry?

Can't think of a title.

I got a day off today, so I decided to head up to my old college. I took a few pictures (the first real time I used my camera - Christmas present - not counting a test shot), grabbed some food (that Orange Sunrise was one of the best smoothies I've ever had) and just looked around.

Most shocking about today's trip was how anonymous I was. I graduated from the school a good two years ago, and no one noticed that I didn't belong there (then again, it is a pretty big school). I saw one of my old teachers. Not all that sure he recognized me. I gotta do something to stand out, or else I might just fade away.

Oh, and it's snowing. Definitely not good for tomorrow's driving lesson.

Drive me crazy...

No, that's not a song cue. (Don't even think about it!) It's just that today marks the first time I've driven. 23 years old and learning to drive. Insert derisive laughter here. Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm... Okay, you can stop now. My instructor was a kindly old lady...until the mistakes happened: weaving about the road, going too fast (who knew I had it in me?), hitting the pedals too much. Overall, she said I did well for my first time. The next few weeks will bring more learning. Thursday is lesson #2. Wish me luck.

"You know what I like about you? You're tall."

I gotta start posting here more often. I damn near forgot how to log in. Well, not much going on. I'm constantly in the process of making things happen, but to little immediate avail. Wish me luck, everyone.

Oh, and happy 60th birthday to Bruce Broughton, who has written scores for Young Sherlock Holmes, Lost in Space and Narrow Margin. (Which I happen to be listening to right now. It's also the source of this entry's title.)
