So I had another go at a practice session for cake decorating. Realistically, I should be practicing everyday or at least every week to get better. But who has the time or energy? I squeeze in practice whenever I get a chance. The last time I got messy with food coloring and buttercream frosting was around Halloween with them Halloween cupcakes. Maybe that’s why I’m not really getting any better…insufficient time spent practicing!
I made a chiropractor cake for my chiropractor. It was just for the heck of it. I’ve always wanted to try making a chiropractor themed cake. And of course, it was for practice. I get my practice and make someone happy because cake always makes people happy.
I didn’t do anything fancy with it, it’s just a simple plain cake of a chiropractor bed. I made vertebrae decoration with fondant and placed it on the side. At first, I was actually going to make a 2014 sign with the vertebrae, but I discovered that, that would take me forever. So I went with the spine.
My family and I have been going to the same chiropractor for 20 years to deal with our kinesiologic needs. My parents first started going there when they had a major accident way back when. One of my brothers started going there when he had to get his scoliosis treated. And me….well I’ve been making yearly visits there it seems like…for the yearly accidents I have.
This last accident I had occurred on the 5S while driving home from work. There I was…minding my own business driving home. And there is this stupid car in front of me driving 10-15mph. There was only one lane for the 5 since it was shortly after coming off the 10. So I am behind this car planning to change lanes as soon as more lanes come up. I am thinking to myself…why do people like this even bother getting on the freeway? And behind me, another car speeds up behind me out of nowhere. I am still going with the flow of traffic, behind the slow car in front of me. The speeding car starts tailgating me, his speed does not slow down and he is just literally up my ass. I don’t know why he’s going to fast when he sees the cars ahead of him driving like turtles. I keep glancing at my rear view mirror and thinking WTF? And then BOOM! He rear ends me. Technically, it’s 100% the fault of the driver that rear ended me, but I also blame that stupid car that was ahead of me. But of course, that other driver had no involvement in the accident and continued driving away like a turtle.
The last time I was receiving treatment from Dr. S was in 2012. Okay and this incident really made me realize how many retarded nutcased drivers are out there that shouldn’t even be licensed to be driving. I was driving straight in a residential area and out of nowhere this SUV speeds out of an alley, hits my car, my car loses control, spins around, we hit a tree along the way, I try to brake, but brakes aren’t working, I then pull the emergency brake, my car finally comes to a stop and ends up on the side walk. It was the scariest accident because I’ve never had my car lose control like that. Mind you that this lady only had the option to turn left or right, as there was no road to go straight ahead. So I had the right of way and she should have slowed down to look for oncoming traffic before making a turn.
In the end, of course, her insurance company took liability. And that was that…the case was done with….AND THEN a short time later, I receive a summons, about 20 pages. I was like eh wtf? Wasn’t this case already settled? It turns out that the bitch is suing me even after everything was determined to be HER fault. Even her insurance company said it was her fault, but being the nutbag that she is, she decided to pursue a personal law suit. My insurance company, attorney, and I all think that this woman is out of her mind and that she must have one stupid attorney who is just as nuts. The whole situation doesn’t even make sense at all. She was telling everybody that I was “texting”. I even proved I wasn’t texting with my phone records. And even if I was (of course I wasn’t though), I don’t know how she is going to argue that she saw me “texting” because if she can see that far, she should have seen me coming and yielded the right of way. So yeah…I am settled to see her again in court in December of this year for an accident that occurred in January of 2012. I wonder if I can countersue for defamation and inconvenience.
Even with so many accidents in my record, my premium does not go up. I don’t have at fault accidents and I don’t get tickets (well, not since I was like 21 or so).
