I can drive a car...uhm, yay?  
...woa. I actually did it. I got my driver's license! Took me nearly three years and cost a fortune, but I did it!

Yes, I'm a slow learner when it comes to practical things, such as driving; very slow. But on the other hand, getting a license is a pretty tough and expensive job here in Sweden. I talked to a few guys in the US who were about two years older than me. There was mentioning of _fifteen_ theory test questions and a driving test. There was much jealous anger on my part *smile*

Seriously though, after having suffered through two years of theory study (school doesn't stop just because you're allowed to start practicing for the driving test), waiting until I turn 18, a test with seventy questions, a trip to the test tracks (so they could see if I'd kill myself as soon as there's ice on the road and if I could handle hanging up-side-down in a car for more than two seconds) and a drive test that lasted one hour and fifteen minutes, I think I'm entitled to a little relief...and bragging, lots of bragging *sheepish yet blissful grin*

I've got another obsession too, by the way. How come I haven't noticed Numb3rs before? Charlie Eppes in particular. Well, no matter, now I have to catch up with the current season! (And perhaps study a little German along the way, we'll see).

Hey you! *pokepoke* Congrats on the test. I didn't even have 15 questions, I had 10. Not that I'm complaining mind you. Anyway, just wondering how stuff was going and to say that we finally have a new Wilson to torture. :-) Hope all is well in life and that we can talk soonly.

Just _10_ questions?! *shakes fist at the injustice of it all*

But never mind that. A new Wilson you say? Hooray! I promise I'll get back to rping in aternaville ASAP; have had a mob of school assignments and colds against me, but I seem to have been victorious. Should we start a new thread for Bertie and Jeeves in the aternaville forum and see where it takes us? Or perhaps we could jump into the book store-thread were Wilson is having a chat with Death?

Just 10 questions. Which I am extremely grateful for, of course. And no worries about the school work, I just had a mob of it myself. *was swamped* I'm all for a round of shenanigans whenever you are though. Bertie misses his Jeeves.

Wohooo! You made it... (which I already very much know... but anyway, yay! Great work). *is secretly bitter because another friend is finished with the torture of taking a driver's licence when certain someones has not even started* But seriously though; THERE'S 70 FECKING QUESTIONS?!! *dies* man I didn't know that, what kind of a country do we live in?! I'm never taking driver's licence! I'll pretend to be a friend of the environment for the entirety of my life...

Oh don't worry about that now, I'm sure you'll be an excellent driver! And you're not the only one who's waiting with the license - a lot of wise people do it (as taking it while finishing senior high = not easy or fun). 70 question is a bit evil I know (and they remove 5 of them before you get your result so they may remove five correct answers *eeeevil!*), but so far the only ones I've heard fail are the ones who hasn't studdied the handbook at all.
