And I forgot to mention  
Uh... more accidents. Again I was NOT HURT. (because last time I managed to scare Laura, and I'd rather not do that again >.<)

So, I was walking to the bus stop from working today, and I stop at the street corner in order to wait for the light to change. (Side note: this is almost exactly the same place where I actually did get hit by a car.) So, while I'm waiting, a blue car is waiting for the light to change in order to turn left. Well, the light changes, and then it starts to turn like it's supposed to, because you don't just stand there in the middle of the road blocking two lanes. So, while it's trying to turn, another car (silver, large car) tries to run the red light. They collide, there's a loud smashing, crumpling and skidding sound and they skid. Right towards me. I had a "Holy. fuck." moment. But they stopped about half a lane away. And then the blue car turned and drove towards me and stopped and the two people got out. (They're Asian. They take the shock well it seems.) They immediately came up to me and the girl (Jamie) asks "Did you see what happened? Can you be our witness?"

I replied something to the basic point of "Holy fuck, get back in that car and turn off the fucking engine, your gasoline is spewing out and it's parked right next to me." (Except there was no swearing. But that was what I was thinking. I was standing right next to a potentially explosive vehicle leaking fuel into the gutter at my feet. Holy shit.) So they did, and so I told them yes, I'd stand for their witness, gave them my name and number. This took about twenty minutes or so, and in the process, I watched my bus drive away. (;_;)

I will also add that the driver of the other car never got out, and never moved from the middle of the freaking street. Cars were trying to drive around him, and nearly failing, he was so inconsiderate.

So anyway, I wait for the light again, the light goes green, little white man light goes on, I start crossing.

But you know the thing about accidents. People like looking at them. Like... everyone. So, as I was trying to cross, this lady was trying to turn left.

Yes, right into me. So I leap backwards, and she slams on the brakes, and she starts apologizing profusely. And since this is such a difference from that bastard not too long ago, that I smile politely, and let it go and continue crossing the road, never mind that she was in a large shiny truck that would have done me a hell of a lot of damage had she collided with me.

...And then Jamie would have had to have been MY witness. Or the other 50-odd cars crowded around the intersection. But yeah. I got on the bus, transferred, walked home and nothing else happened. Thus, my eventful day.

Now for a story that I have half-told to people but not fully.

Again, this story involves me standing at the street corner, waiting for the light to change. And as I'm waiting, I just stand there looking dreamily around me because it's a gorgeous day (this week has been lovely) when suddenly something large goes and hits me on the head. I turn around and see a Bible lying on the ground. I'd been hit in the head with a Bible. It was the small kind, the ones missionaries like to hand out, not the huge hardcover kinds they give you at... Confirmation (I think?) otherwise I think I'd be slightly dead. Or dented.

So I looked up, and there on the third or fourth story, there's an open window, and a guy's staring out at me. And he wasn't all "are you okay?" or even "uh, can you give me back my Bible?" He was all frowning and disapproving glare.

And so here I was going "WTF did he just throw a Bible at my head?" and he keeps glaring at me! So I walk away. And yes, I left the Bible there. It might have been diseased. Insanity's catching, after all. Ronsen suggested I burn it, but despite everything I'm still Catholic, and even most normal people don't go around burning Bibles. He'd have probably followed it up with chucking a flaming torch of fiery retribution at me if I even tried it.

....So yes. Steph had a Bible purposely thrown at her head. Jesus loves me.

And this amused me.

kon3ko32: mm... God's watching over you, sweetie. :3
kon3ko32: its an.. omen. o_o
kon3ko32: go to church.

I love my sister.

Omg, you should use a different intersection. I bet there isn't one though, huh?
Stephaniemirroredsakura on March 31st, 2006 04:18 pm (UTC)
There is a closer bus. I'm taking that one today. Thing is, I need a quarter and I always forget it and need to take the other bus. ^^;
Sarahstarbuck on March 31st, 2006 05:21 pm (UTC)
I heart your crazy accidents.

Seriously, that is impressive.

Though the bible story may be my favourite one yet.

Hehe, living in Toronto and all it's cracked up goodness. I replied to a text-message Paul sent me with a message I thought was rather tactful. "I'm a witness for a car accident. At least I wasn't involved this time."

He told me afterwards that the only thing that registered for a few minutes was "car accident" and he was halfway out the door saying, "I have to go and rescue my cousin!" before he reread and realized. ^^;

And truly, my Bible story beats all right now. ^_^

O__________o;;; I wonder whether the intersection hates you or something LOL But I'm really glad you're okay. And that bible thing is hilarious~ XD

*grins* I know. Hence my taking the other bus today. ;p This one requires me to walk only half a minute. Which is good. 'Cause it was raining hard today.

Steph, you're a car magnet! That's the explanation! 8)

Also, WTF?! That Bible story is the most hillarious thing I've heard today. I'm still laughing XD

*leaves you a big pile o' feathers* Am back btw <3
Stephaniemirroredsakura on April 1st, 2006 05:05 am (UTC)
I am. And not even the good kind. I've never one a Tim Horton's draw yet. Sigh. I only seem to attract near-death experiences.

And *nuzzlehuglove* I re-welcome you and makes a chocopillow for sleeping purposes. ^_^

One of these days your rims will rrrroll up right. I've won plenty of donuts.

Stephaniemirroredsakura on April 1st, 2006 07:37 am (UTC)
I never have.

...Could be because I don't drink coffee often. But then that's me. ^_^;

I know, really. Hence my taking a bus nearby. It requires an extra quarter. I don't often remember to bring one with me, hence braving the crazies at the intersection. ^^;

Stephaniemirroredsakura on April 4th, 2006 11:54 pm (UTC)
I did tell my parents. It's not somethiny you can avoid telling your parents, especially when you have to give the police your number. I'm not letting them pick up and listening to "Hello this is Officer --- from the OPP, I'd like to speak with [me]."
イッサンmiya_fangirl on April 10th, 2006 06:41 pm (UTC)
