May I just say  
I am heartily sick of being in car accidents. I'm fine; it was a low-speed rear-end and my car is drivable, although it will need a new back bumper and trunk lid.

Still. Annoying as hell.

whimper! Poor car!

Indeed. I'm hoping that the insurance company will see fit to repair it rather than total it. (Although if they want to total it out, I may take the money, sign the release, and see if I can get the car fixed on my own.)

I'm glad you're okay!
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 28th, 2011 04:07 pm (UTC)
Me too. Thanks!

Geez, I'm sorry. Even the smallest car accident feels like an enormous event. I hope it resolves quickly for you.

Get the police report early next week, call his insurance company, arrange repairs. Grumble. :-)

The important thing to keep in mind, as always, is that cars are repairable and, if necessary, replaceable. (And usually insured.) Body parts, not so much.

So, far better the car is banged up than you are.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 28th, 2011 04:06 pm (UTC)
Well, yes, but I'm still feeling pretty cranky about the whole thing.

Oh no, not again! Glad you're ok.

I'm beginning to feel like the whale (or maybe it was the bowl of petunias?) in Hitchhiker's Guide.

Why am I reminded of Shorty Steinitz from the original Callahans books…
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 28th, 2011 06:06 pm (UTC)
Ain't that the damn truth. Still, at least I'm okay.
Excellent. - stdharma on February 4th, 2011 08:47 am (UTC) (Expand)

Oh yikes!! I'm glad you're okay, Janet.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 28th, 2011 07:58 pm (UTC)
Me too. Thanks!

That sounds exceedingly annoying indeed. I am sorry.

*hugs you warmly*
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 28th, 2011 07:59 pm (UTC)
It was greatly annoying. On the other hand, it wasn't snowing or raining, the other guy has insurance, I'm not damaged, and so on.

You know, keep this up and you'll learn to stop time, get out of the car, and let the collision happen. "Oh, yeah, low speed collision, I just phone those in these days."

I'm really glad you're all right. But I am tempted to send you a metal ruler, both for play-potential and to let you test to make sure there isn't a giant magnet stuck inside you.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 30th, 2011 06:40 pm (UTC)
Heh. Thanks for the good wishes, and for the offer of magnet-testing.

Crikey!!
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 30th, 2011 06:40 pm (UTC)
It could have been worse. But yeah.

Woman!
That's it! I'm going to see if I can get Tony to sell you his Ferret Scout*. Let's see them try and hurt you in that!

Hugs

Dale has been suggested I look into something like an armored personnel carrier.

You've certainly had more than your share.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 30th, 2011 06:41 pm (UTC)
I certainly think so.
TSJAFOtsjafo on January 29th, 2011 11:30 am (UTC)
I'm glad you are ok.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 30th, 2011 06:41 pm (UTC)
Me too, thanks.
amaebiamaebi on January 29th, 2011 08:48 pm (UTC)
Oh, my, I'm so sorry.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on January 30th, 2011 06:41 pm (UTC)
At least I didn't get hurt, which is a goodness.
