My rental car is a stupid shiny silver........

.........Kia Sportage..... HAH made ya look :D

I was supposed to get a standard sized car but all they had was a PT cruiser. They offered my choice of

Ford Focus (can we say sardine can on wheels)
Chevy Consort (GM sardine can on wheels)

Neither an option when hubby is 6' 1"

Dodge Dakota pickup (yeaaaaaaaaaaah I don't do trucks ^_-)

PT cruiser (not even )

And the sportage. *sigh* too used to the grand prixs we have to like it) But better than the other choices

Dropped the car off at the body shop and Enterprise was supposed to pick me up at 3 (we set appointment yesterday) to take me to their location in Ft Smith (45 miles, yes that's the closest one). I was to call when I was on way to body shop for sure. I did only to be told "Well we have another pickup set for 3:30" ^_- Yep, had to wait. Then driver doesn't get there till 3:45. But finally got to pick up rental and hope they don't have to total the black grand prix (other one is green)

Oh dear

Body shop estimate is for $20 over car value. Insurance Adjuster says if will stay there, then no problem. If it goes over... car has to be totalled.

Don't want car totalled. Like this car. Just needs to have headlight.

Alternative is total, buy back and use money to fix ourselves. She can't give figures without a lot of running around. *sigh*

Six Years Today!

Along with celebrating Memorial Day weekend, we also are celebrating our 6th Wedding Anniversary today! Sometimes, it seems like its not been that long and other times... Well, I can't remember how it was without him :)

However, we did our celebration yesterday by taking in a movie double header. Both of us have been wanting to see two different movies since we first heard about both of them over a year ago. So we went to both!! Then dinner at Ryan's Buffet after.

Joe grew up reading the Iron Man comics. I grew up watching one of the first animes here in the U.S. Speed Racer (Yes I have spent my travels back from NJ collecting the McDonald's toys and currently am only missing the red and black car of the japanese driver :D!!)

Both were truly awesome and both followed the originals rather well and quite closely! Can't wait for sequels!!

*toddles off to listen to her Speed Racer Soundtrack for the nth hundredth time today :D

The Molly Addict Maker is Vindicated

Ok as and have already posted, the Leaky Cauldron Crafty Witches got together to do a thank you package for JKR when the last book came out. My craft of choice (ok I know you've guessed but humor me!) was A Molly Sweater for her.

Today, Errol came by my house with this!

I'm stunned!

10 quotes meme

GO HERE. Keep refreshing until you've collected five (or ten if you are ambitious) quotes that really resonate with you, then post
them to your journal.

Here are Mine:

1.) There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not open. Emmet Fox

2.) There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost. Martha Graham

3.) Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What's a sun-dial in the shade? Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)

Aim of the Game: For one week, you are to post photographs taken during the day.

1. You must take between 6 and 8 new photographs per day...or 12...
2. Your WITL must be consecutive. No skipping days.
3. You must post your photographs at the end of that day, sometime after the last picture is taken. (If dial up had worked, the first ones would have been posted then here!)
4. Each photograph must have the time taken beneath and a title, with no other explanation.

You must post these rules at your first entry, then link back to it for the other six days so that people will know wtf you're doing.
