i have about a million phone calls to make right now, but i just have to take time to take note of the past 12 hours' or so events. i will start at the end by saying MY *&^@ *@&#^*%^ CAR HAS BEEN TOTALED AGAIN. on the way home from nation last night i was hit by a possibly drunk driver in rockville. he was a little surprised when i jumped out of my car and started screaming, "THIS IS NOT FUCKING HAPPENING AGAIN FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!" there are many worst parts to this scenario, i am not sure where to even begin with them. having to find another car to buy, having to call a million people, having to have gone through the drunk test myself in the middle of the street, having to relive this awful feeling of what could i have done to prevent this??? over and over, being extremely sore, having my knees bruised and my thumb burned AGAIN exactly like last time, having to go to some tow lot to take my belongings out of my poor, sad, dead little car... the list goes on and on. every time i think about it at all i begin to laugh and cry at the same time. at least this time it was in no way my fault and they took the guy away in cuffs. i'm not sure why but i guess it will say on the police report. at least i can say that i think the ford aspire (oh my poor little car!!!! it just passed emissions!!!!) is a very safe car to get in an accident in.

there was a good part to my night. in fact i would venture to say it was the best night i ever had at nation. i was there for the very beginning of the Damned show, and it was AWESOME. i was right up front, only 2 feet away from Dave Vanian!!! he is everything i hoped, he is the goth elvis god. i worship. the opening band, tiger army, wasn't too bad either, in a punk way i guess. not that i want to throw that word around, having no cred with which to do that whatsoever. anyways, the damned have added a female bassist, i think she is dave's woman, and she is THE BOMB. she is incredible. i was completely stoked after hearing most of the set and i wandered off to let someone else get battered by crowd surfers.

i found out that several old friends were at the club, people i haven't seen in YEARS. jay looked so awesome and freakeden did too and it was so great to see them. in addition to that, jack informed me that i may have flipped the dancing switch on him so now he likes dancing. this makes me happy. it was such a good night. and the real irony of all this is that i was really really worried about jack getting home, in fact i was thinking all the way back of all these horrible horrifying scenarios of him calling me telling me he'd been in an accident. and then i ended up calling him. what a mess. what a terrible mess. and i had such a wonderful night, too. it's a damn shame. oh well, i better get my ass in gear and make more phone calls to sort all this out. and a doctor's appointment. dammit.

If there's anything I can do, ANYTHING, please let me know. This SUCKS.

Get a different color Aspire next time. ;)

thank you so much. so far i am doing okay... but get this; the rental car is going to be a pickup truck! hee. i guess i CAN take that stuff to goodwill myself now. i have to see the silver lining in this cloud of crap.

the other thing i was thinking last night after screaming at the night for a while was, "at least i didn't get shot." SIGH.

hope you're having a good day!!

I am so sorry about your accident. Your poor little Aspire! :(((( WTF?!? I'm glad you're okay though.

Are you gonna get another Aspire or is the car choice up in the air right now?
Oct. 11th, 2002 08:36 am (UTC)
i don't know. that's two that have been totaled this year... i totaled another little green aspire back in may. *CRY* i have no idea what to get. in a way i want to get another one if i can find one but at the same time it seems like they are bad luck. i don't know. i hate this. :P

suggestions on car purchasing are certainly welcome though!
Oct. 11th, 2002 08:35 am (UTC)
That is SO SHITTY!!!!!! At least you aren't hurt. Stupid drunk drivers. If you need anything please let me know.
Oct. 11th, 2002 08:39 am (UTC)
thank you!! i don't need anything i think. :) i am just glad i didn't wake you up when we came in last night, i was in a state. i will be glad i think to just see all my friends tonight and hug people.
Oct. 11th, 2002 08:48 am (UTC)
That is UNbelieveable!!!
I am glad the guy's insurance is paying for everything and dont seem to be hassling you too much (must not be State Harm Farm. You should go and get "massage therapy" for a few weeks, to make sure your back is OK. ;) You might have injuries that might not show up for a few years!

If you need any help or anything, let me and H know. :)

Oct. 11th, 2002 08:54 am (UTC)
Well, so far it's my own insurance that's making things happen; we don't even know if this guy HAS insurance yet. He didn't have any information on him when they took him in. I'm not even sure he had a license but the cop talking to me wasn't too clear and I was not in a state of mind to be asking all the right questions. I do plan to go to the doctor but to do that right now I need a rental, so I'm waiting for Enterprise. I have to say that USAA has been SUPER good to me, even though by next year I will be paying the most exorbitant premiums EVER. Thanks so much for offering but so far... I think I am doing okay... my neck IS pretty stiff though.

Whoa! Sorry to hear about your car; glad you're (mostly) ok. I think that karma is well against you in the green Ford Aspire area; perhaps it's time to move on to a different type of vehicle.
Oct. 11th, 2002 09:05 am (UTC)
Yeah... that was my immediate thought. But at the same time, I survived a 30-mph (I'm guessing, I don't remember) collision in it. But at the same time, yeah. I've always been a little superstitious.
Oct. 11th, 2002 09:52 am (UTC)
Geez - sorry to hear that. Having an accident is enough of a mental trauma without having to deal with buying a new car while trying to move.
Oct. 11th, 2002 10:46 am (UTC)
I know! What horrific timing! Grr. I was just out getting the rental car and I realized that yes, I am going to be driving like a grandma for a while. And drive in the rain? Please no. I'm a little scaredy cat at this point.

USAA Rules
Crap! I'm so sorry Kim! I'm glad to hear you have USAA. They've always been extremely good to me, and I think they're really good about not raising your premiums when you're not at fault. When I got rear ended by stupid nurse woman two years ago, they didn't even make a mention of a premium increase. Speaking of which, I'd better call USAA and pay my frickin' bill!
Oct. 11th, 2002 10:46 am (UTC)
Re: USAA Rules
Yes! If you don't they do things like take away the option for you to pay in small payments. Not that I would know about that.
Oct. 11th, 2002 10:22 am (UTC)
That's awful; I'm really sorry, but I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt.
Oct. 11th, 2002 10:47 am (UTC)
Thank you. I really do appreciate that people care at all and I'm not even trying to make a play for sympathy, this just sucks!!
Oct. 11th, 2002 10:51 am (UTC)
I'm sorry about your car, very glad you are OK. See the doctor soon. Let me + msteleute know too if there's anything we can do to help re: transport.

Oct. 11th, 2002 12:24 pm (UTC)
I believe Patricia Morrison is actually married to Dave Vanian. I just read the link you had to her, and its kinda funny, her friend 'Andy' she helped out was Andrew Eldridge. If you look at the cover of The Sisters of Mercy 'Floodland' cd, that's her face on the right. That's why they were making Sisters of Mercy jokes last night. Just thought I'd share.
Oct. 12th, 2002 12:32 am (UTC)
Thanks! I had no idea. My trivia memory is terribly lacking. I was actually wondering as I was standing there waiting for the show, gee, I wonder how many of these people are on livejournal. Because I'm a massive dork.

oh honey, i'm so sorry!!!! i'm glad you're ok, but man is that shitty. I've totaled at least 2 cars myself and i know how awful it feels the second time.

I will give you lots and lots of hugs tonight. maybe too many, since jwiv can't come to dinner.
Oct. 12th, 2002 12:34 am (UTC)
Thank you :) And I am glad everyone showed up to dinner and the whole evening helped me relax alot. Ahhh.

Was just there....
Damnit damnit damnit...
I was thinking about asking you and Jack if you wanted to get some food before going home. I should have. Glad you are ok. So sorry. It must suck really really bad. I mean, damn. Again?!?
Oct. 12th, 2002 12:37 am (UTC)
I know... it's so messed up. I keep thinking about the many ways it could have been avoided.

Again... cause I totaled another Ford Aspire just back in may. I think right around the time we met? I can't remember. UGH.
Oct. 12th, 2002 12:32 am (UTC)
Wow that sucks so much!
I'm glad you weren't seriously injured.
How happy that you had an otherwise fun night to help balance it out.
Oct. 12th, 2002 12:41 am (UTC)
Indeed, it sucks. If there is some kind of justice in this world, though, the bureaucratic process which is insurance/purchasing a car will be somehow made easy, because gah... there just isn't time for all that!

Thanks for the kind words.
Oct. 12th, 2002 08:17 am (UTC)
Lady K and I are glad that you're mostly OK!
Hope that things go OK in resolving it all.
