More Random Things About Janna: The Automotive Edition

66) When I'm feeling depressed, I like to take long drives on back roads. When I do this, I tend to only go about 40 mph, which annoys anyone who happens to be behind me, which annoys me further.

67) When I'm feeling angry, I like to drive a little faster than the speed limit, and I get annoyed with people who are driving 40mph on the back roads.

68) I'm very nervous about driving on expressways. I don't like the "divided" aspect of it. I don't like the fact that you can't do a U-turn if you need to. It's too easy to get lost, and turning around is always a hassle. Plus there are tons of maniacs out there who know exactly where they want to go, and they're annoyed that you aren't moving fast enough to suit them. It's ok if I'm a passenger in a car that's on the expressway/interstate, but god forbid I should have to be the one driving on it myself. Please pass the Xanax. If the only way I can reach your house is by driving on an expressway, there is a pretty good chance that I will never stalk you.

69) I have never had sex in the back seat of a car. Well... I guess that depends on how you define... um... on second thought, let's just skip this one.

70) I am the only person I know who actually thinks the Pontiac Aztek looks cool. Sure I know there are sportier sexier cars out there, but still, doesn't the Aztek look nice and friendly and fun? Am I the only one who thinks this? Anyone? Anyone?

71) I can't see as well at night as I used to, so night driving has become more of a challenge. I can still DO it, of course, I just have to really concentrate on the road, more so than usual. And other people's headlights pretty much BLIND me, much as if they were a deadly ray gun pointed directly at my retinas.

I notice that I'm having a little more trouble seeing at night too.

Wait...you can be both the person irritating me by NOT using those winding back roads as a roller coaster, AND the person behind me gesturing like a maniac for me to get out of the way???

Now you're really freaking me out.

Travis: I can be lots of things! If you notice it's me, just roll down the window and hold up a sign that says "Janna, you idiot, it's ME, Travis!!!" And I promise I will stop doing whatever it is I'm doing. Well, maybe. Probably. Possibly.
Plus it will give me something to blog about the next day.

Janna - I love the squiggly clips I got at the "Wren's Nest." I do altered art and they are going to be wonderful!!!
Most of my supplies are packed up (due to a pending move that may take place) but when I get something going I'll take a photo for you.
Thanks for stopping by - that was really a fun meme. Had a blast...

I am SO happy that I do not travel the roads in Michigan!

Janna said...

Amazing Gracie: Thanks for your support! Come back to The Wren's Nest any time you'd like! :)

Mr. Fab: HEY!! I'm a good driver, really I am, as long as I'm not depressed or angry or blinded by alien ray gun headlights... Besides, I hear Florida drivers are ten times worse. ;)

The oatmeal & mud creations made by my neighbors seven year old are more attractive that a pontiac aztec.

Desert Songbird said...

My sister's second car is a Pontiac Aztek. She thinks it's cute and fun. I think it's hideous.

I much prefer her first/primary car: a BMW 500 series.

Janna said...

Onionboy: HEY!!!

Desert Songbird: Ok, a BMW is always nice, but still, I like the Aztek too... *sigh*...

Turnbaby said...

The Aztec is ---well Songbird said it best---

I am the person in Kentucky using those country roads for a roller coaster!! Move on Trav!

Janna said...

Turnbaby: *sigh*. So I really am the only Aztek fan. How sad....
