theorising - suetekh
...so yesterday is a bit of a blur of queasy headacheyness after two bad nights sleep and various stresses...but despite my lightheaded woozy bumping-into-walls state I managed, with the aid of heavy drugs, to pass my driving theory test by a comfortable margin. 

One of the questions did in fact ask about taking medication that affected your ability to drive, and I thought to myself that I wouldn't drive  in this state but I seemed capable enough to pass the bloody hazard awareness test.  If it wasn't for the fact that re-scheduling would have cost £30 I  would have stayed in bed, and  retired to under the duvet by about 8...

but yes, pleased to have passed - next step getting ready for the practical test - but the achievement rather overshadowed by a general feeling of having cotton wool for brains with the whole world in motion as though I were permanently walking across a boat deck...

I don't think I'd be capable of a lesson today. Am drugged to the eyes and feeling very very weird!

Sorry you are feeling yucky, but I'm so proud of you for passing your written test!! So when will the driving test take place?

That's a good question, to which I don't have a reply yet...

However, I have a driving lesson on Thursday where I can surprise my instructor as he didn't even know I'd booked my theory! Plus I should have a roaad worthy car by this time next week so can start driving to work and back to build up experience and confidence. Put simply, if I can't drive by October I can't go to college...

Does that mean you got a place then?

Well done again :) I had a migraine the day before test #3 and failed on the basis I was drugged to the eyeballs and did a very stupid mistake indeed...driving in that state is not safe, but I guess with the computer terminal it's ok!

nothing confirmed yet but proceeding on the basis that I will have a p;ace, as better to plan for the practical necessities, like being able to drive, that need to be in place. Going to chase them this week to see what's happening.

It's an extra accomplishment to pass a test while feeling awful. Good luck on the practical.

Believe me, I read through each question very very carefully, knowing that I was thinking with marshmallow for brains...you were given an astonishing 57 minutes to do a test of 50 multiple choice questions, so even with going through it twice I had 37 minutes to spare, which made me feel a tad uneasy, in case I was being cocky in some way, or missing the point...but apparently not...

Good job getting through the test considering how you were feeling, but please do be careful with the whole walking into walls thing (says the girl who totally understands and actually tripped *up* the stairs yesterday)!
suetekh From: suetekh Date: July 9th, 2008 01:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
it's more falling down stairs I've been wary of today after nearly going twice! oh, and yes, tripped up my stairs too! It's justthat my sense of space is a little warped today...

Wait.... no boat? How are you supposed to be a Pirate Queen and sail the seas under my standard???
suetekh From: suetekh Date: July 9th, 2008 02:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
I sail under no man's standard! I recognise no master but myself - yarghhhhh!

Tis not a master and serf relationship -- more of a partnership where you get to keep most of what you liberate from the spanish galleons, and I get to call on you to help with some of the bigger raids like the upcoming Tortuga "visit".

Not that I'd mind giving mastering you a try, but I'm not as young as I once was and I don't need TWO peg legs......

Now get well soon.
