lu: (Drive away)
So dad has started to illegally teach me how to drive today. In the countryside it's easier, since there isn't much traffic. He said I did pretty well and all. Apparently he's going to give me driving lessons during the time we're here.

February will come, I'll turn eighteen and then I'll be able to get a license! *_*

I didn't know this felt so good.

On a not completely unrelated note, I've finally watched Pixar's Cars and it's so so good. My siblings love it, and I hadn't seen it. Bad, bad big sister.

On a completely unrelated note, I've just finished Pratchett's Light Fantastic. Sometimes I forget how brilliant that guy is.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
