But loverboy, if you call me home
I'll come driving fast as wheels can turn

Nanette was saying how she had to get her driver's license picture retaken, and how that sucked cause the pic she had was her as a cute 16 year old, garnering her loads of compliments.

I hear you sister. I get compliments on my driver's license too. It's possibly one of the few decent pics of myself. But that was me when I was 22. It's now ten years later, and yeesh, I don't look that great anymore. I'm sure a reshoot is coming up, and I dread the thought of retaking it.

More about driving. I was barreling down the 405 at 80 miles and hour, when I realized...Hey. I'm pregnant.

No, I didn't think to slow down.
I thought, "Man, I can TOTALLY take the carpool lane!"
Yikes.
I AM a bad mother.

But the real shocker here is that you were able to do 80 mph on the 405!

She was using the divider as an extra "special wheel lane" in that tank she barrels around in.

Yup, my picture retake was traumatic, but I have a feeling it'll come out ok because the two DMV employees who saw my new one said, "Ohh! That's a good one!"

i just had mine retaken last week. i know i'm getting older because the "photographer" had to take my picture twice. in the first one, i was looking down, away from the camera like some kind of escapee. i thought when the dude took his fingers down that was it. but no. it's after the flash. funny how technology works. after the flash. i get it now. even worse? the whole line of people waiting and the general (dirty and stinky) populous got to see the finished product(s) since the screen faces most embarrassingly toward them. i think the dmv is out to get us. sneaky bastards.

dude - I had to retake my pic last year cuz the "younger" version of myself looked like I was all drugged out. I was having a bad day when I took that pic because that was right after I got mugged for my wallet which never got recovered. So along with cancelling my credit cards, I had to replace my drivers license. The pic was so bad, cashiers in checkout lines would look at my driver's license and say, "bad hair day?" yeah - I finally retook that stupid pic.

Add me to the "I hate the DMV" list.

I completely agree. Every time some one sees my driver's license pic they comment on how pretty I look. Next year I have to get a new one and I KNOW that I will look like my normal self again. Boo.

Hee, hee! I carried around an old license picture for years because it was possibly the best picture taken of me - ever.

They let me keep my best picture ever from my work id (sometimes you get a good guy like that). But usually any id picture looks like they dragged me out of bed in the middle of the night and beat me with a pillowcase full of oranges.

My son used to hold up my DL and shout "come look at this ugly picture of my mom!" - there was even what looked like a speck of tobacco laminated to my nose on that one.

Yeah, now I pretend I'm going to Glamourshots and I fluff my hair/preen before I let them snap. Hey, I'm not the only one!

Thanks for getting me all worked up. Belatedly of course, but worked up the same:D.
