I SUCK.

where am I: how the hell do I get to work?
How I feel about it all: soresore
Soundtrack: me virtually flogging myself with a very large whip

Note to self: Never look at Mapquest directions while driving, because then you might not notice that the signal has changed, and could even end up BROADSIDING A MINIVAN.

*sigh* I am fine, save for an airbag burn on my chin and a slightly achy back. The other driver is fine as well, and was very gracious.

My car is another matter entirely. Of course I only have liability insurance. Having collision insurance would mean I actually do things right. Which obviously? I do NOT.

I keep hoping she'll be okay, but airbags? Are expensive to fix and the passenger front door wouldn't open. *cries* I LOVED THAT CAR, DAMMIT.

omg - I'm glad you're ok! :( Car accidents are so scary. Please see a chiropractor if your back isn't better right away. *hugs*

*hugs back* Thanks, dear. :)

I've never had a car accident before, can you believe it? Everyone was very nice, though, even the guy I hit. Even the cop.

I'll probably get my niece to drive me to a chiro tomorrow (if I can reach her). I don't know who's good around here, though. Bleh.

It was scary, and then I felt like a giant heel.

However, I've decided to blame Stephen Harper. Because I can.

Eeep! Scary. So glad to hear you're ok.

I'm fine. A little sore, but okay. I'm trying to pretend that I didn't blubber in front of a perfect stranger and a cop (who was also a perfect stranger). Joe Dick would SO never have acted like that. *g*

I'm really fine. I'm probably going to rent a car on Thursday and keep it for a week, and take it from there.

You do NOT suck. I'm just very glad you're okay! *hugs*

I'll probably stop with the feeling sorry for myself eventually. :) *hugs back*

Oh no! I'm glad you're okay. But your poor car.

If it can be fixed, I'm going to try and see that it is. *sigh* I don't have the money for a new car and nobody in their right mind would finance me.

The guy whose car I hit said that, too, which means he's a very nice guy. I'm glad he's okay, also. :D

I'm fine, dear. Although I may spam LJ tonight to avoid thinking about things. :)

Me too! Thanks. :)

Traffic accidents are always quite a scare. I've been in one (I was driving too confidently in the snow as a 19-year-old...lesson learned) & I saw many in my 2 years as a public transit bus driver.

I am happy you are here to look back on it. You are now stronger! And Mr Harper will be gone soon anyway.

primroseburrows at 2008-04-09 01:21 (UTC) ()
Maybe I'll feel stronger tomorrow?

When he's gone I'll have to find someone else to blame. *thinks* Dick Cheney? Except he'll be gone, too.

You t-boned a minivan? Yikes! I'm so glad you're okay, honey. And you do NOT suck. But boo on the no-collision-insurance. I've been there and it's not fun. *hugs*

It was at an intersection, so thankfully I was going slow enough not to off myself. *cuddles*

Definitely okay. Just carless. World-suckery bigtime.

Oh, no, that's awful! *hugs and hugs*

My best advice, as a veteran of car smashes (what? They weren't all my fault.) is drive again as soon as you can and trust yourself.

*hugs and hugs too*

I don't think I feel apprehensive about driving, but I'm a little worried about car fixage. Bleh.

Ack! That sounds terrible! I'm glad you're okay, but man - scary stuff! *hugs you tight*

I hope you can get the insurance stuff sorted.

Insurance doesn't pay for my car, but my DIL says the place she goes does payment plans. If this place doesn't, I'll have to have Ellen towed, but I really want her fixed, so I may have to.
