I didn't stall once. :) (The stick part was never a problem, except in Seattle with its monster hills.) I did rev it a little too high coming from a stop, and I was shifting a little too soon - I don't have an ear for the car yet - but other than that, I did fine.
Jeff bought a new to us vehicle tonight, which is why I was driving in the first place. He's getting that car, and after we dump some work into the Metro, I'll be driving it. I'm not mobile yet - we do need to do some work on her, and get NC tags on her - but I'll be a much more mobile Joyce by the time school starts, if not before.
 Last Christmas, I moved Hope's car in the J. C. Penny parking lot. Oooh boogy.
