So, I am still not able to drive on the street. Just in the parking lot.
The boy is fairly patient - but he is not good with the feedback. Things like, am I in a lane? Would I hit cars if there were other cars here? If I ask, he tells me. But if I don't ask, he assumes that I know how I am doing. And we don't have enough cones to make a lane.
I have no spatial sense. Zip nada none.
This of course makes it very complicated to learn how to drive. Since the majority of driving seems to involve spatial sense while moving.
So I am not only learning the mechanics of driving, I am having to teach myself spatial sense.
I really, truly hope it something that one can learn.
Or I will never get out of the parking lot.
And I am really getting sick of making the same turn a zillion times in a row.
So, iggycat and I watching V: the television series.
She is an ideal person to watch this with - for she too is much with the snark. The television series verison of V cannot watched without snarking. It is cheesy, the acting is atrocious and the special effects are ridiculous.
At one point the snark was "That is a plastic paratrooper. Nope, it's a G.I. Joe doll. No, really, _it is_ a G.I. Joe doll"
In today's episode, the hair of the main character distracted me so much I missed the dialogue. It was 80's hair - sprayed and teased - and it was boy hair. But it looked like it could defeat the snakes all by itself and then take on godzilla.
That's the kind of show it is.
One really should consume alcohol while watching it. Alas, alak, I seemed to have left the majority of the good stuff at scarlet_storm's.
The boy and I saw Taxi this weekend. It was train wreck from start to finish. I picked the film because of the actress, but sadly, she could not save the film. Not even the surprise scense with the actor who played Lindsay from Angel could save the show.
The boy even let me jeer at the movie and such is normally FORBIDDEN when watching a movie with him.
I kinda wish Lindsay from Wolfram and Hart had been in the film. He would have killed them all, stole the money for himself, and then retired to play the guitar.
That would have been better.
Hell, a torch to the film stock would have been more entertaining.
I am desperately waiting for season 4 of alias to come out on DVD. As with the season 8 of SG-1. As neither have finished, I will be waiting for a very long time.
Alias is a guilty pleasure. The plots are so convoluted that you can guess the next twist - because there is _always_ another twist.
but I am caught up on Alias, SG-1, Gilmore Girls. I have finished Buffy, Angel, Babylon 5 and Dark Angel.
We are in the middle of 4400 and at the start of the second season of Farscape.
I am in the middle of season 3 of the west wing.
But I don't know where to go next.
