This morning I had to take my car back to the Honda dealer because when singing guy at Sears changed my battery it somehow set off a security code in my stereo that made it not work. The dealer has the code. It used to be that the Honda dealership was a busy place with lots of people and commotion but now that the economy sucks, it's just a bunch of men standing around the service department waiting for something to happen. Bored men everywhere. They were very eager to help the helpless woman who couldn't get her radio to work. As I stood at the driver's side door, one man sat in the passenger seat and one in the driver's seat and tried to figure it out. The passenger seat guy (who also helped me on Monday and Tuesday) said he was pretty sure the code is in my glove compartment and opened it up with great force. And then the entire universe went quiet. Remember when I had that great idea to start hiding my little cameras in pads with wings? Well it turns out those wings really do flap because those pads flew right out of my glove compartment! I forgot they were in there! They as in more than one. OH MY BUDDHA! They flew in slow motion and landed on the floor right at the guy's feet. He shut the glove compartment real fast and said they'd just look in the computer as the other guy made a mad dash back to tell all his bored work buddies that the most embarrassing thing ever just happened. I said nothing. I just bed cool. I didn't react at all until I drove away and I haven't stopped laughing since then. I have to go back there next week. I think I will just put pads all over my front seat like I mean for them to be there and it's normal. They probably call me Honda Accord Pad Lady now. AAAAHHHHHH!!!
I keep reading all these blogs (and seeing tv shows) where people talk about how bad the economy is then list things you should go buy. Hmmm. I think it is really stressful to have no money and feel like you have to buy gifts for people. I also think it is stressful to think that instead you'll just make stuff for everyone but then where are you supposed to get time to do that when you are working twice as much for less money? Nobody has any time or money and we're all stressed about it. We're going to do our part to help with that. It's contest time! There will be three recipients of gifts. One winner will receive their choice of (signed) Visual Chronicles or Journal Revolution and two winners will receive their choice of whatever print they want from my etsy shop. Even if you already have our books, play anyway. You can give our book or the print as a gift and that means less you have to buy. I'll even ship your winnings directly to a friend with a nice note if you want.
Comment here and tell us what you had for lunch or share an embarrassing moment with us by midnight on December 8th for your chance to win. All names will be written on tiny pieces of paper and put in my glove compartment and winners will be selected with my eyes closed.
