Driving Test = Passed

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

With only Three Minors, too!

Finally, I passed my test, on the third go. I can throw away the L plates now! I’ve been driving my brother all around the Wrexham area, and I don’t think he’ll stop asking for more in the future either. :p

For histories sake, I post my Pass thingy which I won.

Go me!

Rover 25!

Finally, my new car has arrived! As said before, it’s a Rover 25, British Racing Green, with a 1.4 Litre engine, 16 valves. A previous owner, who coindicentally lives but not two “blocks” over on Smelt Road.

I drove it home on Friday evening, but a lack of batteries for the camera, then darkness, then going to Cardiff to see Wales lose to Slovakia, then more darkness, then sleep prevented me from taking photos until today.
Rover 25!

For those of you not in the know, or from another country, the L = Learner, as I’m still provisional. (Can’t get past the test yet, but with this extra practice, hopefully I will.)

Jorbs!

Or jobs, to the common uneducated man.

I’ve been for a job interview at the very very posh Ramada Plaza hotel. £120 per night, but i didn’t stay over. It’s for a job with Avox as a Data Analyst with spreadsheets. It’s on the Wrexham Industrial Estate which is the largest purposefully built Industrial Estate in Europe, if not the UK.

I’ve also applied to GAME, HMV and Woolworths for temporary Christmas jobs. I hope to get responses soon!

This damned car is evil. There is still no news, except last night I discovered it’s not around the back anymore, so they must be working on it again. That ignition coil had better work or I’m going to call up that Mr Tarbuck and tell him to stuff the deal! >:(

Oh yes. Also, since everyone of my posts must contain geekyness, Lost Season Three starts tonight in the US of A. Which means in the U of the K, I’ll be watching it tomorrow! :p

EDIT: Yay! Phone call from Mr Tarbuck! The car will be ready on Friday to pickup! Woooooo. Expect Piccies then!
