I was in a car crash this morning.

Damn snow - I said before I hate it. We woke up this morning to an inch-deep fall over everything (well, everything outside, naturally, I'd've been quite worried if there had been snow on my bed, say). When we got to the village, there was none, so it was only up in the mountain bogs, clearly. Unfortunately we had to cross the Galtees, cue mucho slush and a fatal bit of black ice that sent my mother careering into the hedge and skidding 180 degrees. (At least we didn't jump the ditch and roll over in the field, like last time.) We weren't hurt, thank goodness,  but the car was - all the fender was peeled off.

Rescue came in the dubious form of Sean the Shop, who drove up only minutes later, jumped out and saw me standing there shivering (I was so not staying in the car in case another car came and crashed into it). First words: 'Put up your fooking hood or your fooking ears'll freeze I'm only fooking telling you this now.' He hung around to watch - 'Jaysus Mary and Joseph d'ye think I'd miss out on the action, woman?' he told my mother and organised for Liam Doherty to tow us out with his tractor. Liam, I don't know you from Adam and you'll never read this (in fact, can you read?) but for removing my mother's car from the hedge I wish you the benificence of the deity of your choice for a year and a day.

I was in shock for a bit, and felt nauseous, but I went to college anyway on the late bus. There were compensations, as the cute blond hobbit-boy (usually on my early bus) was on the late one too, so - eye-candy! And there can't have been much wrong with me because after Dr Pepper and a Caramel KitKat I felt right as rain.

On a lighter note, I saw Fatboy Slim's Joker at Sharon's place at lunch (yes, I do spend college dossing off to watch MTV, why?). IT WAS SO DOTY! The ickle kitties! The cutest video EVAH! I swear I had squee coming out my nose.

I'm very glad you're alright! *hugs* KitKats are the best medicine.

It's so strange how one can get back into routine, though, despite wanting to run around screaming "But the car CRASHED into things! Really! Shouldn't I get a medal or something?!"

Okay, sorry, that's just me.

I agree! We should get some medical prize.

Actually, I would have revelled in the excuse to go home and back to bed (I hate six am starts!) But my mother had no time to take me home and my dad's in Dublin, so that idea was buggered and 'twas back to the grind for me!

But my mother would heart you. xD

Nah, my mother has some kind of charm that saves her from injury in her annual prangs and speeding-problem...and it seems to be have been passed onto the next generation! Sorry to scare you, hon.

Yipes! I'm glad you're okay but that has to be scary nonetheless. In the immortal words of one Remus Lupin, "Have some chocolate, it will make you feel better."

'Twas a bit; but at least I know (from other experiences) that if you think you're about to die, you immediately black out, so it's really nothing to be scared of!

Yes. *beams at the two Caramel KitKats on her desk*

gah! i'm glad you're okay. my lil' heart pitter pattered a lot quicker than normal at the first setence, but i'm definitely glad to hear you're opkay. hurrah for boys/men named Liam! :D

Yes, I'm sorry about that! See, I knew I was okay, but no one else did, of course...

Liam had cheeks like apples, and was ten thousand years old. I may adopt him. *ponders*

Man, that sucks. I'm glad you're o.k.

You're pampering yourself for a while, right? You deserve it.

Thank you! I have a (hopefully long-lasting) talent for escaping injury in these circs (although I regularly fall over things).

Yes! Several Caramel KitKats were consumed, and my waistline sobbed rejoyced.

I thoughr yuo were dead then I realised youre the Messiah and cant just die!!!(Heheheheh)
Shit I thought you'd died and written that entry from the grave it was weird and then I thought if you had died I'd have nthing to read on the internet and you never said while I was txting you. Were you wearing a seatbelt? I hope you were and that you didnt scare that poor man!

You are officially the strangest person I know right now. You think if I was a ghost I'd come back to haunt lj?

...HOW DID YOU KNOW!

I always wear a seatbelt, and he scared ME.

YIKES! I am so glad you are okay! That is so scary - I hate getting in accidents. I've only ever been in two noteworthy ones, but they were both really scary, although no one has ever been hurt, thank goodness. One of my friends from middle school was killed in a car accident last year - I think it is like the leading cause of death for American teens.

Despite the scary, I think being saved by someone named "Liam Doherty" and a guy who says "fooking" and "Jaysus" would put a silver lining around the whole event. At least for me. But I, of course, am an Anglophile, and cannot help it.

It's a pretty big killer anywhere, I guess. Dangerous little things, cars! Its awful to think of someone you know dying like that...*touch wood*

Yes! I tried to inject the compulsory humour (and even felt it) but you are the only one to appreciate it! *bows*

Meep, that must've been scary -- I have no experience of being in car accidents myself. Although a friend of mine has told me a story that would be slightly am00sing if not for the poor m00se (or elk? I always mix up those two words). They'd just picked up a German hitchhiker who had been vacationing in Sweden for some incomprehensible reason and was just about to go back home. He told them he had had a nice time, but he just wished he'd gotten to see a moose in the wild. Just a few minutes later he got his wish; the car has been brought to a screeching halt with the head of a full grown moose sticking in through the windshield.
For a few moments all is quiet in the car as they try to recover from the shock, and then the German blissfully breaks the silence: "Now I have finally seen a moose!".

(... what a bastard.) >:P

[/rambling tangent]

Anyway, glad you didn't get hurt and everything.

At least we didn't jump the ditch and roll over in the field, like last time.

Wait -- did the car roll into the field, or did it turn over, like upside down? If the latter is true -- YIKES! O.O

He did have a point, I feel! You have to be very specific in what you wish for, otherwise fate or luck or whatever will stick a moose through your windscreen. They have a strange sense of humour, these mysterious forces...xD

Yeah, it sort of took a jump over the ditch and rolled over (upside down!) three or four times. Luckily there was no corn in the field at the time...I didn't even get a scratch. Long may it continue!
