Stating the Obvious....

You Are a Chick Rocker!

You're living proof that chicks can rock
You're inspired by Joan Jett and the Donnas
And when you rock, you rock hard
(Plus, you get all the cute guy groupies you want!)

Today I traded in my SUV since my lease is up in 2 months; I was a little concerned because I've had it for 4 years and so there are a few dings here and there. Ok, I'll be honest - it's pretty banged up. Someone clipped my door, there's a minor crease on one side (very minor, barely mentionable - but I know it's there), and the bumper was repaired when some jerk broadsided me a few years back; the paint job never stayed well for some reason so it's peeling. So, I had been planning on putting it in the shop for repairs prior to turning it in, and really only went today for giggles. I definitely thought they'd give me a hard time about it. Fortunately - they thought it was in great shape! I'm thinking, "what the heck condition do people turn their cars/trucks in???" So, surprise - I've upgraded, kept my payment roughly the same - and I'm so looking forward to picking it up next week. Sort of an early birthday present to myself, if you will.
Speaking of which, tomorrow my girlfriend D is getting married, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate my big day than dressing up like a Diva, feeling fancy and dancing with the girls. Outside of a romantic rondevouz, it doesn't get much better than that! I'll post a pic or two of the fun.
I broke down and bought lottery tickets for some big, $320 million pot. I never gamble really (other than Blackjack!!!) but this week I bought both MegaBucks and The Big Game (I think that's what it's called) tickets. I did win $66 on the MegaBucks ticket, so who knows - maybe this is a good week for me.
If you never see me Blog again - well, then I guess you'll know why!!! :)

It would be pretty funny...(if I buzzkilled this prank I'm so sorry)...now I will show up here everyday to check. :::smile:::

hahahaha. No worries - you didn't kill it! I have to be honest, I'd probably write some big farewell before I jaunted off to some place luxurious like the French Riviera! I've never been good at telling/playing jokes...I always laugh too hard and give myself away! ;)

wow...I'm laughing...I do exactly the same thing...I can't tell a joke without completely laughing through the punch line....totally wrecking the effect..."Two cannibals are eating a clown hahahahaha and one says to the other hahahaha does this taste funny to you?"

sheesh! see what I mean?

I would offer the advice "dance like nobody's watching" but its a wedding and I saw Wedding Crashers so go nuts.

Congrats on the new vehicle, what did you get?

I agree, if thats cool what happens when you show up with only half the car?
