 Yesterday was quite a day. Woke up late, had to get gas on my way to work but it wasn't taking my credit card for some reason...so that took forever, then I left work, went over to Beauty Concepts but they are closed on Tuesdays...just my luck. went home, spent way too much time on my physics homework, went to class...we got a new teacher for the last 4 weeks for whatever reason, and he sucks. He is really boring, doesn't care if anyone understands what he is saying, and we have to cover 2 chapters in an hour and 1/2... basically, every night. the other teacher took the time to make sure everyone understood everything and made us pay attention by calling on us and whatnot. grr. so class sucked. I walked out of the building and get a call from Brad saying that he's sick and can't meet up :( Hope he feels better. So I hop in my car and I saw a cop as I pulled out of the parking lot and sure enough, he pulled me over right down the street. Man those lights are bright.  Of course I couldn't find my proof of insurance, so he told me that it would be a $2,000.00 fine for not having that on me... but I told him I really do have insurance and he just laughed at me... :(. He said he was going to run my license and see what comes up. After sitting in my car for what seemed like forever, he came back to give me a $25 fine for my registration being expired (whoops)...he said he only gave me a break b/c my record was clean. how exciting. He also said something about giving me a break because we were technically on campus... eh, whatever bs he decided to feed me. I actually thought it was kind of funny because then I got a voicemail from my mom telling me to renew my registration tomorrow. heh. irony at its best.

I went home and told my mom that I got pulled over... I was sorta laughing about it because she told me to get it renewed that day, blah, blah, blah... I guess that was a bad idea bc she got really pissed off. o well, not much I can do... I guess I just expect her to get mad at me no matter what I say, how I say it, or why I say it.   She's been a bit crazy lately...but her dad (my grandad) is really, really sick..so I guess she is just stressed out about that, but I've been trying to avoid her at all costs lately... ANYTHING I say to her is the WRONG thing to say... We went to dinner a couple days ago, and we were walking out of the restaurant and she started walking the wrong way...so I said, 'hey we parked over here' that's all i said, and she starts yelling at me saying I embarrassed her in front of a ton of people (which is bs cuz there were maybe 2 people walking by us and they didnt even notice us), and how i should have said it nicer and blah blah blah and WOAH THERE. geez... so now, I'm just trying my best to avoid her, mind my own business, and stay out of the path of wrath. Whenever I get worked up or stressed out, I start to feel sick, and I just can't have that happen all the time....which is why I seem more relaxed these days...bc i am. I can't let the little things get to me.

OH random, but Swing dancing with Brad on Sunday was really really amazing. :) We were talking and we want u guys to come with this Sunday... so let me know, cuz im definitely going again :) (Sunday at 8:00, pretty much 1 block before Ashbury's)

Edit: Forgot something.. R.I.P. Syd Barrett... Shine on you crazy diamond (Syd was the founder of Pink Floyd)

if he tried to fine you for missing your insurance card, you can just provide it within 24 hrs (I think) and they'll drop the ticket. You might have to go to court to contest it, I'm not 100% sure. But for future reference, just stick the insurance card in your glove box in an envelope w/the registration, just makes life a helluva lot easier.

Why'd he pull you over in the first place? Seems like just an ass if you ask me.

And swing dancing sounds like fun!

yea, he let me off the hook for the insurance card bc my record was clean. I had like 50 expired ones in my glove box but I couldn't find the most recent one.. it's prolly in there somewhere, lol.

He pulled me over because of the expired sticker on my car... i think he was waiting for me... creepy.

and yea you and Laura should come! :D

Le Kev said you need 24 hours...but actually, if you even show up to a court date (pleading not guilty to the ticket) and show proof of insurance for the date of the ticket, they just drop it... of course, that always just takes longer.

Plus that guy is a douchebag. You should file a complaint.
