Very quick update

Had my lesson for today and it went very well. After 20 minutes or so he told me to park the car at the side of the road, and asked me how I felt so far. My reply was: "I have hoped that you wouldn't ask, 'cause now everything is going to be worse." He just rolled his eyes and told me to believe in myself. Like I said, it got a bit bad after that but I saved it and drove good in the end. He said 80% was good! He told me that I was using my mirrors perfectly. I looked every time I should have looked. He also pretty much stopped telling me when to go up and down a gear.

Tomorrow I will have a two hour long overland lesson. We will drive to the Swabian Alb and have fun there. I really like driving faster outside of cities so I hope it will be fun. Lots of curves and great roads.

I still have no time for my exam on Thursday. They switched to an online only system during the last days (communication with the driving schools) and well, Germany does pretty good with a lot of things, but new systems and internet is not one of it. But I should get the time tomorrow.

I'm incredibly tired (also because I did a lot of revising for the exam) but I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

      Liked this sentence (which sums up the “we get to be part of the Boys Club and are elevated above mere women” mentality):

      Also side eyeing the quotes about how “boymoms” are always cleaning up poop and toys...apparently under the impression that girl children are born litterbox trained and just sit around listening to NPR.

      Mother of girl dragons here. When Cloudlet #2 was in elementary school, she and her friend came up with a lovely game called “so you think you can burp”. And no, they do not come litter box trained.

      Watching the webcast of yesterday's sabbath assembly was the usual infomercial for "this place" and"Gwen's message". Had a lot of fun getting grossed out by David Martin's fashion choice of car salesman plaid jacket, enormous turned up and over, shirt cuffs, loose pale blue pants with tight ankles, and no socks. Poor Michael was brought in stealthily, once again all in black, hair higher than ever. Audience asked to rise for his performance. Such are the perks of royalty. Gagggg.. Now weasely David Martin can't wait to roll right into some other awful droning piece. The constant applause for grown men writhing on stage in stupid outfits is not something any normal person can get used to experiencing in a "church". These so-called leaders are unbelievable narcissists.

      The powerful message of the day, to quote David Martin was a WeighDown video. The title was Born Again Part 1. Really really awful. I amused my self laughing at Gwen being filmed lecturing in a red and white checked Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm dress held up with red ribbons. Ludicrous! But not as crazy as the summary of the film, Avatar, complete with many long scenes. I wonder if she paid for the right to show the film, probably not. Oh heavens. This went on for an hour.

      Timeless message, cries out D؛avid Martin. Errrrr, really old one. Then the youth group came on stage and sang while waving V for Victory. Then everyone held hands, and I was hoping they would stop soon. But no, they starting acting the song out. Awful awful awful. Applause. Some doofus came out and said Gwen's message was really powerful. No message like Gwen's on this planet right now. Oh boy. Where is the great teacher, I wonder? Is she off somewhere canoodling with Joe?

      The Eagle Room? Kent says you can go there if you are "convicted"!?!!?

      David Martin begging for everyone to get those testimonials in... It's the right thing to do. Gwen and the leaders need to see them. You are officially dis-missed!

      I have an extremely unusual last name. Pretty much if there is someone  with the name or a variant there is a good chance we are related. I have a ‘cousin’ I met through Facebook. We had a FB friend in common and she noticed my last name. She asked if I knew. A(insert last name here) or a H(insert slightly different spelling of last name here) Yea I knew them seeing as one was my uncle and one was my dad!

      She had heard family stories about my dad, his brothers and my grandmother growing up.  She is kinda sorta related by marriage and a stepmom.  We just call each other cousin. My dad died before all this happened, but if had know of her he would have called family. 

      My husband has a rather plain standard kind of boring last name.  No way I would ever change my name to it. I was already a mom when I married so my kid has my last name and she wants to keep it. 

      Oh and one more thing.  The FB friend we have in common it turns out she is related through adoption and we met when we belonged to the same congregation. Totally out of nowhere. I just call her cousin as well.

      Two things I've noted, both positive: 1. Tom has fully accepted Andrea's diagnosis, and knows that nothing more can be done. Not everyone in his (horrific) position is able to do this. 2. Andrea has an absolute gift for gathering people together: her friends, her family, her youtube channel. She will leave a legacy behind her of many amazing, caring people that would do anything for the family. Tom could have shut down and closed himself off, but he is choosing to tap into the community and the love that his wife built. Reaching out, staying engaged, and celebrating Andrea's legacy will help him survive. I am shocked and horrified that so many little ones will be losing a mother, and so many loved ones a wife, friend, etc. I've been thinking of Tom and the kids all day. :cry:

      And because all good Florida stories involve MDMA and Fuck Face

      Quote

      A 23-year-old Floridian is jailed on a pair of felony narcotics charges for allegedly possessing the opioid fentanyl and “five orange tablets in the shape of Donald Trump’s head marked Trump NL.”

      The seized Trump pills appear similar to tablets that have been manufactured in Europe and have prompted “high dose” safety warnings due to their elevated level of MDMA.

      Police found the drugs inside an air vent in the Clearwater apartment of Brendan Dolan-King. Cops went to the home “in reference to an overdose” and were given permission by Dolan-King to search the residence, according to an arrest affidavit. A police investigation revealed that Dolan-King “was possibly the person to provide the victim of the overdose with the heroin that he overdosed on.”

      Dolan-King was charged Friday with the narcotics raps after lab tests confirmed that a tan powder seized was fentanyl and that the Trump pills contained MDMA. Dolan-King has been in custody since late-June--when the drugs were found--on marijuana possession with intent to sell and probation violation counts.
