*points at self* Terrified of driving! Me too!

Have to do it, though. Comes with the Soccer Mom Action Pack.

I must check out this Guided by Voices I hear so much about.

I’m really weird about personal safety: I’ll go running at one am, I’ll ride my bike almost anywhere, and I’ll do aikido things with guys who are 100 lbs bigger than me. But driving scares the begerserz (is that a word?) out of me. It’s not so much me being killed as me being able to kill other people. It’s terrifying to be in control of something that dangerous. I d drive my mom’s car sometimes. The only way to conquer my fear is to confront it.

Have you checked out the Gex X forum?

GBV is an aquired taste. Check out "Bee Thousand" Sadly, the band broke up in 04 due to infighting amongst band members and the out-of-control drinking of Lead Singer Robert Pollard, who is a total frakking genuis.

What! Drinking and infighting? In an indie rock band? How is that even possible? * is incredolous *
