Damn straight. For as long as I can remember, my mother has observed that "you have an answer for everything, André".

I think it was only natural that I ended up a debater.

No idea what the fucking thing was, because the next person to go into the room was my mother, who picked up the dead bug and threw it in the rubbish.

Ahhh! Fuck, i hate insects. A big factor for why i was so happy to move back to New Zealand in 1997.

I'm not too bad at navigating when I'm by myself. I map out the route the night before, make notes and keep the Melways on standby.

I like to yell at other drivers though

My navigation is alright too.
Ahh, right. If I could drive, I can totally see myself being That Guy Who Floors It Through Yellow Lights.

My one use on any driving expedition is as a navigator. Sure, I can't drive, but you'll never get lost with me reading the map. I've always loved maps and geography.

when i'm in the car by myself or with a close friend, i totally yell at other drivers. almost nonstop commentary if there's bad traffic and people are being jackasses, and given that i drive in boston, probably they are.

i had sooooooo much fun when i drove with a friend to a concert in the burbs and there was one of those massive arena parking lots and leaving was a big competition. i am competitive. it was a blast. at one point i made her get out of the car and block another that wouldn't let me in by standing in front of it! then i bitched at drivers in front of me who let cars in, of course.

Sometimes i'm really confident and sometimes i get out of the car a shaky mess. And i'll even have that on the same route.

Some days i'll drive to Mt Smart Stadium and i'll have spent so much time talking that i can't remember any of the trip, and sometimes i'm so wired into concentrating on the road it takes me forever to relax.

Bizarre.

Yeah, I always zip stuff shut. In this case, I'd just forgotten, and by the time I noticed, it had already been months and I didn't want to know what was living in there, so I put it off as long as I could!

That's me, unless i'm not feeling too confident. Usually, in Auckland though i have a bus or truck right up my clacker and i need to floor it through yellow lights.

If you'd had me in the car with a map open on my lap, I can guarantee you that you would not have ended up on Chapel Street.

Though you probably still would have ended up behind a tram somewhere along the way ...

that's weird. i generally get into a car nervous, relax immediately if i actually know wehre i'm going, or remain nervous if i'm following unknown directions, particularly confusing ones.

i'm also a little nervous on the highway as i'm bad at changing lanes, again, inexperience.
