Yay!  
The Saturn is registered and inspected. Hopefully, I can get the Honda done next Monday. Oh, and the guy at the inspection station was so very nice. He went to check my plates. "Sorry!" I held the NY plates in my hand. "I came directly from the DMV." "No problem," he replied. "We can put those on for you!" Thus eliminating the slapstick-comedy portion of my day to have been titled "Wherein Kel attempts license plate installation." Also eliminating the ensuing hilarity.

In other news, I can not, as I had previously been told, change the status of my state taxes for work over the phone. And EZpass is being an asshat.

I'm going to go watch West Wing commentary and crochet.

What? You already had one miracle...
Surely you didn't expect two in the same day! Actually, having dealt with NYS DMV, I'm surprised you walked out with plates in hand! Still, you're almost converted to a New Yorker. At this rate, it'll only take you another couple of weeks before you become a bad driver with the attitude that everything on the road belongs to you and get out of my way, thank you very much!

I say this having lived in upstate NY for three years. I know from where I speak!

We have the same driving attitude in Texas, but it usually comes in either a Pickup Truck (yes, capitalized) or an SUV.

I drove around with expired NY plates for months (until a cop finally actually *ticketed* me for it), because I was completely unable to remove the old ones. I tried. My brother tried. On both the front and back plates, one screw would come out and one was rusted *completely*.

I finally had the auto shop *drill* them out. :-p
