    She got her CDL license today and is officially a trucker babe!!!!

    I'll bring the graduation cake and my gift is a set of trucker mudflaps. Only in THIS case, instead of the chrome woman outline, they have glittery shooting stars on them!

    Anyone care to join me?

    I'm in!!!!

    I think the stacks for her rig should not only be chrome, but have star cutouts for the exhaust. That's mine!

    gcvmom Here we go again!


    I'm bringing plush, donkey-embroidered seat covers -- that is, seat covers with a donkey embroidered ON them, not embroidered BY donkeys -- since she's going to spend a lot of time on her :censored2: she may as well do it comfortably, figuratively, and with as much style as she can possibly stand. :winks:

    Well, not exactly a donkey, but I'll bring a My Little Pony bobblehead with stars on the haunches to put on the dash. Congrats!

    Thank you very much!
    My overall GPA was 99, and I got a VERY GOOD on all my categories except attitude. I got excellent on that. (ORLY?)

    I am THRILLED this is over. THRILLED I tell you.....My pretrip was slammin, skills made me want to throw up (prayed between and before each one) and my road trip was about the easiest thing I've ever done - and I avoided hitting two completely cracked-out drugged up, lunatics riding bikes that literally tried to kill themselves by riding right in front of my truck (THANKS A LOT) and totally avoided killing them, and passed with flying colors. O.M.W. even the examiner could not believe these two guys were that high and that stupid - WHO rides a bike RIGHT in front of a semi-tractor trailer ON MY TEST DAY? There was TWO of them - TWO. UGH. Out of no where - TWO! I never said a word - just kept thinking - WOW Whose kid are YOU - DANG difficult child's. (see? ONLY you Star) I just applied brakes - hit my 4 WAYS, and waited until they both got clear of the front of the truck and never said a word. (I can NOT believe I was that cool) - but when I got back to the DMV - every bit of me wanted to find a bush and retch. My legs felt like spaghetti and my picture looked like I just killed I went back today and begged them to please let me take it over. At first they said no, but then I told them - three times in a womans life she is this happy - The day she gets her CDL - When her children are born, and when she gets a divorce. Then I said - "Wont you please consider this? Because I have to send a picture out with my resumes?" and I handed it over and even the examiner was like "WOW"....and chuckled and said "Wait a minute." She went to the mgr. and I heard "GHEEZE...yeah no problem." and another chuckle. So I did the little under eye cover and eyeliner thing - and got a nicer picture where I don't look like Jeremia Johnson or some other backwoods, cabin keeping, bear trapping, woodsman. OMG it was awful.

    Mom said maybe I should have kept that picture - you know - show em I'm a tough looking woman. I said 'Tough?" "The picture would scare the hide off a buffalo." Nope - I went with decent. Nothing flashy.....just more humane.

    Anyway - thankyou for the part....ay. I appreciate it. Can't wait to see how ya'll pimp my ride. Fav. colors - black and purple.

    Love ya'll
    Starbie - the truck driving barbie. She comes with an 18 wheeler and a tow behind corvette - for when she gets to town and doesn't want to run Bobtail - (thats trucker talk for Tractor only without a trailer) hehe.

    Huge congrats Starbie!!!!! You go girl!!!!

    My gift to one of the hardest working women I know is this:

    Her very own tractor trailer with a large purple donkey with stars for eyes painted on the sides. Who wants to travel all over the country with company logos on your trailer when you can have a large purple donkey with stars for eyes?? I mean talk about unique. (and it matches your other gifts lo)

    Don't ask me where the purple comes from.............That is just what formed in my head. Could be the fever.......... I'm a tad sick. :rofl:

    Knew you could do it Star! That test is a real lou lou, but knew you'd pass with flying colors. (glad it wasn't flying bikers.......but thinking they might not have counted off for that lol )
