13th driving lesson, new laptop & 42opus
Because of the dark, I had a hard time seeing, too. The instructor ended up invoking the highest deity: OH GOD. So, it's back to square one, I guess.
Wheeeeee! I'm now the owner of a new laptop — was supposed to get it next year before going back to Manila, but the husband insisted for the birthday. I suspect it's a ploy to keep me and my ever-growing Sims population away from his new computer. Because of my annoying —erm— knack for catching viruses and worms over the internet, I wanted to go for the MacBook initially. But the 13.3-inch ouch-my-myopic-eyes screen (as opposed to the 15.4" of the laptop) dissuaded me. Plus, the delish idea of playing with my Sims in bed (now doesn't that sound inflatable-doll kinky) is a dream. I mean, if I die, they can bury me directly in that position. Hee.
42opus accepted two poems for a future: A setting sun and It could have been a centerfold.

Okay, so I'm another year older:
A little fish (with the initials N.C.D.) sent me an e-greeting that addressed me as "arelene" — as if to prove that, with age, I've become a plural form of my own name. Tsk.
Well, off to get jolly drunk!
