Anyone Who Said 'Carpet' Was Half Right...

His name is Jack. :)

I had my first unofficial driving lesson today. I stalled it too many times to count, went into second gear and went around two road islands about 8 times... x.x;;

I don't feel like I'm doing so well, although apparently I'm doing quite well for someone who's never driven before. Must get better!

Set to start learning int June this year - We must compare notes!

Will be driving a Pegeot 306 named "Nelly" once I eventually pass my test!

I always find it odd how girls give their cars (and PCs) male names, and guys give their cars / PCs female names. :P (Says the girl with two honestly genderless PCs and one female PC - named by someone else, but still female...)

I'm sure you'll do better than I was!

My van was definitely female, although never named. I'd like to think my also nameless pc is male, since I'm verbally and physically abusive to that on a regular basis, but I've never really got around to questioning its gender too deeply.

However, my mobile and my drawing board are both male, Casian and Julian respectively... so what does that say about me according to your theory? O.o

Nelly is based on the numberplate... the last three characters are "NLE"

Mrs K and my computers (we have one each...) are networked as "Yin" and "Yang" - as initialy yin was beige, and yang was antibeige (read "Dell standard issue grey")... since we upgraded yin, both machines are now antibeige but teh names stuck!

...and reguarding driving, I had two lessons 13 years ago and it traumatised me to teh extent that it's only now that I can comtemplate trying again (and that's only due to external pressure to do so...)
