Sliding backwards sucks. And downhill... just keep your foot off the accelerator until you hit the bottom of the hill.
I made it home okay. Spun going up Washington Street but that was my fault for starting up the hill too fast. And to get down my street, I put the car in low gear, basically tap-rode the brakes the whole way down the hill...
and then somehow slid into my parking space in front of the house.
But my friend and coworker Jackie gave me a great idea for uphill avoidance a few minutes ago. I hadn't thought of going home that way before she mentioned it.

"Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”--Simon Pegg
