    Ah! My mom's car just got flooded... she was driving, and the river overflowed and caught her car. She got out with my sister, but the car is ****ed. Nearly brand new, too. At least everyone is alright.

    Saber, I'm glad everyone is safe. Cars can be replaced; human beings can't.

    How to keep your moderators happy:

    1. DO NOT set Interplay as their home page

    2. DO NOT ask their girlfriends if they know what THAC0 is

    3. DO NOT offer to show them.

    4. DO NOT fart in church and blame it on them

    5. DO NOT lock them in the dark church

    Well, to continue today's news. I had my first attempt at driving a car. It was scary. The fact that the first car I drove was a supercharged Land ROver didn;t help.

    Also, we discovered that one student's electric wheelchair handles like a tank.

    Well, that car is gone. We tried to go back and pull it out... the water had risen 4 inches. We couldn't find anything to tie the rope onto on the front of the car without having my dad actually dive under the water and tie it onto the axel, and he is not going to do that, its far too dangerous. In any case, I sure hope the insurance company helps out (yeah right, those scammers :rolleyes: )

    OMG, Wooot!, One Big Weekend ROCKED!!, I loved the Zutons, We Are Scientist and The Kooks. Although the Kooks stormed off stage as people in th crowd were taking the attention away from the Kooks and they got annoyed, nt even a goodbye or thank you.

    A most glorious battle indeed! The enemy were over a hundred vicious uncivilized and eager to cut flesh! On our side, the brave and honourable warrior we were only half of them. It didn't matter we had honour anc courage by our side. I slayed over 30 of the dishonorouable scum my hallberd was filled with heathen blood, my armour was worn and my muscle were aching but I had courage at my side! Slashing a ultimate strike before our glorious victory I killed two scum with it! A double kill with a single hit. Indeed I was stunned. I dids suffered damage, but fear not 'tis but a fleshwound! *

    * T'was all true, except the weapons were made of foam. But I totaly killed two guy with a single strike, most astonishing indeed.

    They won't go there. We called them, they said too bad. We tried to get it out... the water is up to the door handles (this is a mini-van, by the way). So, we're down a 30 thousand dollar car.

    At work again, and I am sitting with a patient tonight, so I should get some good posting in tonight, because I will be sitting here for 12 hours. Not that I'm complaining of course, because it makes for an easy night.

    @Saber, I believe that flooded roads fall under no fault part of insurance, I am glad no one got hurt.

    My new phone takes video, how crazy is that! I need to get a memory card so I can use the MP3 player. DoTW has brought me to the dark side.

    Mwhahaha! Welcome to the Dark side, Brallrock! :evil:

    No, seriously, I'm not a huge fan of music phones, but to quote my pal Chandos, "If I can carry one device instead of 10, all the better!". I intend to get a CDMA RAZR, so I too will have a music player and camera.

    Saber, but I assume the water will go down eventually? Is the car stuck in place?

    When the water does go down, the car will be ruined, best he would get for it would be sending it to the scrap, cos a new interior costs about as much as a new car...

    The water is now above the lights... if we do get the car out (in 3 or 4 days when the rain stops), it will be ruined. We will just get a new one, and if the insurance company helps, it will be (relativley) cheap.

    Sorry to hear about your car Saber but Nakia is right. At least your family is safe and healthy.

    Mothers day was nice. I got some home made cards with coupons for chores my son has to do anyway. (But the thought was nice) My husband actually watched the baby for about an hour and 1/2 off and on so I got a break from the little ones non-stop baby action. I also went to the local supermarket and bought a premade roast chicken dinner which meant that I didn't have to cook.

    I wish sorcerers' place would count as extra english work. I need some extra points, and it's in english and I'm talking with other people no? Doesn't that count as « Practicing my english » ? The topics might not be very... topic-able for school purpose and that's a valid point.
