So it was tons of fun...drchase came home with me...we sat around and talked for a bit...then we left for jekyllisland's show...unfortunately...there was this weird incident on Storrow Drive causing us to be late, so we walked in seconds after Rob had finished :(

ehonda seemed nice, I didn't talk to him very much and I had talked to Rob quite frequently in the past week so I already knew that I liked him :)

Well...on the drive home was quite interesting...I got pulled over *ugh* For speeding...*sigh* I didn't even know the speed limit had dropped...but apparently it dropped from 65 to 55...and I was going 70-75...Oops... So I hand the cop my license and registration, he looks at me and goes:

Cop: Miss @#(*)@, do realize how fast you were going?
Me: Yes, around 70-75...
Cop: Did you realize that the speed limit dropped to 55 about 2 miles back?
Me: Umm...actually...no, I did not realize that
Cop: Did you also realize that when you passed me that the lane you were in can get you a $100 fine?
Me: Uh...why?
Cop: Because if there are other lanes available you are not supposed to drive in the farthest left lane.
Me: Oh...no, I didn't know that
Cop: Well now you do.
Me: Yes, now I do
Cop: Well this would have been a $300 ticket if you hadn't been wearing your seat belt
Me: Oh...
Cop: But it is only $200
Me: ok...

So the cop hands me back my stuff...gets into his car and turns off his lights. I look at David and go, "This sucks...", I put my stuff away and David says something like, "Are you going to go?" and I was like, "Isn't he giving me a ticket" and David goes, "No, he gave you your stuff back" *shrug* I was like...umm...ok. I thought he had just gone back to get the rest of his stuff to issue me a ticket *shrug* Whatever...so I figured if he was going to give me a ticket he would pull me over again. I saw that the cop had put on his blinker to get back onto the expressway so I checked and there was no one behind me so I got into the expressway, the cop did as well...then passed me *shrug*

I looked at David and said, "That was weird..." David said, "You are lucky...that was a State Patrol, they are usually mean" Talk about getting lucky *grin*...told ronalum he just laughed and said, "You are such a lucky girl" Well what can I say? I try not to push it though...haha...

David also informed me that I can't be in the farthest right lane either unless I am going to exit...Jesus...who the hell makes up these stupid ass laws? Well...I am going to go get a driving manual for this state...I really don't want a ticket.

After that...we stopped at Krispy Kreme...LOL it was so funny...David goes, "Maybe the cop was happy because he just had Krispy Kreme..." LOL...we ended up getting a dozen...I ate 3...and let David have the rest :) Oh wait...I took one home with me hehe...We got to David's around 12:20ish...estimated time for him to get out of my car? 1:30ish... ;)

Oh...futurejudge told me that it is weird that the cop didn't even write it down because he is supposed to...*shrug* Ah well...why mess with fate?

Anyhow... ;) I need to go get dressed...I have a Brazilian wax appointment...and I want to get the oil in my car changed :) Woohooo...hahaha...

I'm not sure if he's necessarily a bad influence, but apparently, he is bad luck when it comes to getting pulled over. I hadn't been legitimately pulled over since I had my first car. Until I was on Route 1 with Dave in the car. Luckily I had my own ways to get out of it.

Oh, and if you need to know the little weirdities of MA driving laws, let me know. I've studied them.
