Man, am I SO glad that I had an appointment at the DMV. I don't know why more people don't use the appointment system. It's so much easier and faster. By the time I got to the DMV yesterday, the line was all the way around the building, and I had to circle the parking lot three times to find parking. I finally ended up parking in the neighboring building's lot, and just walking across the parking lot to the DMV.

I didn't even bother getting into the HUEG (typo intentional) line either. I just walked right into the building (probably getting lots of dirty looks but whatever), and found the window with a sign above it that said 'APPOINTMENTS ONLY'. No line there. Imagine that.

I showed her my confirmation, then got my ticket with a number on it, and was allowed to wait until I was called. That still took over an hour of waiting, but I amused myself by playing a silly game on my phone (didn't bring my DS). I even managed to get a seat instead of having to stand (the chair was surprisingly comfy, especially since I was sort of crampy).

After my number was called, it literally only took like less than 10 minutes for me to get my driver's license renewed, change my weight (gained 5 pounds since I was 16), take the vision test, pay for the renewal, sign at the 'X' multiple times, AND get my picture taken and my thumbprint scanned. I'd say the whole process took about 5 minutes, not including me having to walk across the building to the eye testing chart, and to the photo-taking area (the lady had to take my picture twice since it didn't save the first time, and my fingerprints are faint so it took awhile to scan).

Then I was out of there!

So, yes, very glad I made that appointment, because I would've been pissed if I stood outside all day, for something that only took 5 minutes to do.

Afterward, I went to the mall (specifically the Godiva store) to make up a small Easter basket for the family. It's very cute! There's a milk chocolate bunny, a package of chocolate eggs (of various flavors), and a package of 8 white chocolate chicks. I got that box especially for my mom, though I'm sure I'll be able to eat half one or two. They're delicious, since I had one as a free sample a couple weeks ago. I would have bought more chocolate, but decided to wait, as it will all be half price on Monday. X3;; That's when I'll get myself a whole flat of Cadbury Creme Eggs.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

Now, I will commence to let myself bleed out and hope it ends by Sunday.
