While I am at it, I still haven't gotten an instruction permit from the DMV. I must confess however, that this is out of my own inaction (wait, no. I "have been very busy"), than due to the inefficiencies of an archaic system. I hope to get it tomorrow (snicker... snicker...).
I pledged to myself to keep this thing better updated. But, as I said before - I have been too busy. Damn, I suck!
