Voodoo driving hex?

I've had way too many close calls driving this week. The weather being crazy is more than likely a contributing factor, but I probably could have died or been severely injured at least three or four times in the last 5 days. I'm almost starting to question my skills as a driver because of it. I mean, I like to think I'm a safe driver, but too much weird stuff has been happening at once.

Okay, well, I can pare down a few. Almost getting T-boned by a semi on Ospika was a mix of the semi being CRAZY and running a red light, and me being too tired to bother looking both ways before proceeding through an intersection. It feels weird saying that icy road conditions probably saved my life though. Good thing my tires have little traction!

I think other drivers being idiots has a lot to do with it too. I spend a lot of time driving, so the odds of me encountering more dangerous and erratic morons are slightly higher than most. But still, I don't like that. Coming to terms with my mortality everytime I leave my house is not something I like to plan on doing every day.

I've started packing survival gear in my car, in case I crash and have to wait for rescue. Well, actually, I just have snow pants and a huge jacket there becuase I was going to go sledding yesterday, but didn't, and was too lazy to carry it out of my car afterwards. Hopefully it will never come in handy.

Anyway, I have to go drive to a Symphony Rehersal. Handel's "Messiah" better be worth it.

semi's run red lights because they have no chance in hell stopping during winter naomi. Them attempting to would only end in a horrible accident i think.

haha the only person I've seen properly merge is me, and that's only when I don't get stuck behind some idiot who thinks merge is french for yeild.

It's totally because they were completely blinded by your good looks. They were like ":O zOMG it's Naomi from Teh Arbitraryzzzz" and next thing you know, they are though the red light.
