Two quick notes...
As neenerface said, ``Are you sure that you live in NJ still?''

So I gave up and gave the DMV a nice fat check to get out of the extortion. I really couldn't argue. I mean, hell, I'm in the right. I know I'm in the right. But if I get caught driving with a suspended license and registration it doesn't matter who is in the right, so I stopped fighting. After sitting in traffic due to the NJT being shut down for some reason, I come home to get a letter from Motor Vehicle Services. As I climb up to the top floor, I try to figure it out. Too thick to be a simple note, maybe they fucking said I'm still not cleared. But they should have sent the check back. That's the ticket. Opening it as I climb... too thin to be a list of shit I need to do, there's the check, oh fuck. Oh fuck. Fuckity mother fucking sweet mother of hell.

They returned the check, saying that everything is fine and ``Fee not required.'' Holy shit. They had my money, they extorted it from me, and they forked it back.

Top that off with getting parking in Hoboken directly across the street from my apartment today. I'm in the fucking zone.

Now down to Black Bear to enjoy drinks with petemagyar and friends.

Oh, and all you cats who talked about playing BRE should play BRE.

Feeling: jubilant triumphant

after the way some of the men in this state have very aggressively expressed intent towards me, i am convinced that i am no longer on planet earth - i am in the state of new jersey.

Heh what the fuck is going on over at DMV... I went there today to renew my registration and I was in and out in TEN FRICKIN' MINUTES!!!! I mean seriously... they're losing their edge or something! They're going soft!!

I used to drink at the Black Bear all the time, I went to school at Rutger's Newark with a bartender from there, she was a hot 6' redhead named Christine, who I also happened to get a job interning at Howard Stern, after my internship ended. She drove a convertible GTO (it might have been a Lemans now that I think about it but I'm pretty sure it was a goat.) Anyway she used to feed me free beer there... that's the end of my story.

Ten minutes? I'm impressed. I had to do an address change and renewal of license and registration in Dover a couple of years ago, and got everything taken care of - even with a mistake being made and resolved - in less than thirty minutes. Something's wrong.

Black Bear's a decent place. Good food, decent crowd, great staff, but the music selection's lacking. The crowd spans a good deal of the age spectrum most of the times I've been there. Other places tend to get the forty-somethings or twenty-somethings, that place gets both.

I think it does that by default for the first few days, ramping it up from there. I think so, anyway. I hope so.

Ya, tell me about it.

DMV lately has been superb and functional... it's like they're hiring people who actually know what they're doing. Only difference is increased security and need for more ID, beyond that it's a cinch lately.

And KF, lemme know what your plans are for Lord of the Rings k? I'm in the city looking for friends to go with on a bit of short notice, and really would rather not have to end up going solo to a film of such epic proportions ;)

Re: Ya, tell me about it.

Yeah, the amount of ID needed for the new license is going to be a bitch for me. I'm going to have to contact the hospital where I was born or something.

I think my roomie and I are probably seeing it in Jersey that night.

Re: Ya, tell me about it.

Nice nice, Hoboken area? And the obvious question of would you mind if I tag along? Hehe.
