California driving test: passed!

I passed the California driving test this afternoon, now the streets are no longer safe :-)
The interim driver license looks really shabby, it's just this text printed on cheap copier paper:

                        INTERIM DRIVER LICENSE 

                  DXXXXXXX        CLASS C 


            ISSUED:07-25-07   XXX   XX/XX   EXPIRES:09-22-07

  THIS LICENSE IS ISSUED AS A LICENSE TO DRIVE A MOTOR VEHICLE;
     IT DOES NOT ESTABLISH ELIGIBILITY FOR EMPLOYMENT, VOTER
                REGISTRATION, OR PUBLIC BENEFITS.

Also the driving test itself was more like a joke than a real test. I just had to drive around for about 10 minutes. No highway driving, no complicated intersections, no 'advanced' maneuvers, no real parallel parking. In fact the "parallel parking" part was to pull over to the curb and drive backwards 3 meters (w/o any other car around of course). And the most complicated maneuvers were to change lanes and to make a left turn at an intersection.

Bicycle stolen!

This afternoon some asshole has stolen my bicycle.
I left it locked to the bike rack at the Hillsdale Caltrain station for 5 hours while I went shopping in SF. And now it's gone :-(

Of course I called the police, but even the deputy sheriff of San Mateo county said that I will probably never see my bike again.
So if you happen to find or see a bicycle with the following characteristics, please tell me (650.888.0140) or report to the police.

Serial# IDC07B22590
Brand GT
Model Avalanche 3.0 (2007)
Color black
Size XL

Stolen GT Avalanche 3.0 2006 - owner 650.888.0140
