Don’t you just love it when some idiot pulls out in front of you?

January 26, 2005, 4:11 PM

I’m chugging up my road at 25 mph (in other words, going the speed limit), and this lady backs right out in front of me. Literally right in front of me. I blew my horn to no avail. I ended up having to make a hard stop to avoid a collision. And at that I was successful. We didn’t hit. We missed each other by about four or five feet, I’d say.

Still, for me that’s too close for a car perpendicular to my direction of travel. After everyone stopped, she pulled back into her driveway, enabling me to proceed.

But anyway, that left me a little shaken nonetheless. Thus why I’m writing in my Journal before hooking up the cable Internet.

Otherwise, though, I had fun while I was out. I went to the Virginia Employment Commission to register for their services for assistance in finding that dream job in Washington. I also went up to Adelphia Cable on Augusta Street in Staunton to get a box of cable stuff for the Internet service. And then I went to Wally World in Staunton to get all the equipment for the connection. And now I get to set it all up. Next entry will be on that sweet, sweet cable.

Web site: "What to Do After a Car Accident" from edmunds.com. I'm just glad I had no accident.

Song: "Suzukisan"

Quote: "Okay, your eyes bugged out. That's okay if you're not sure yourself. That's fine." - Me to one of the electronics associates about a question about the cable modem that, by their physical reaction alone, indicated to me that they had no idea.
