Okay, you can come up with as many rules as you want, but...

...when you try to apply them to your fellow civil servants, they will usually be smart enough to figure the way around every single stupid rule you put in place.

Which means, I have my car tag now. ::sticks out tongue toward Courthouse::

Buncha maroons. And lunch was very nice with My Friend Jeff. We ate over at the Middle Eastern sandwich shop in Edgewood known by that famous Arabic name of Sam's. Good as always, and with the added bonus of a new toy to look at!

Jeff was mightily impressed--I think I sufficiently lowered expectations enough so that he was pleasantly surprised. Then I got to drive him around the corner to see his fixed up old new home. Very nice and quite a stretch from where it started out. Still some bits and pieces to fix, but overall quite worthy of a magazine spread. AND I got to see My Friend Cathy, Wife of MFJ, and their smallest tot, whom we woke up. Sorry. Oh, and Jeff, please feed Cathy more cheeseburgers.

Anyway, did all that and got back to the Courthouse, stood in line for thirty minutes behind at least three other people who were fighting mad by the time they left (without their new car titles) and when it came my turn, I got my registration handled with no trouble at all. Because all of my papers were very much in order. Nope, nothing amiss, AT ALL. Because I am conscientious. So there. ::backs up to window and moons Courthouse::

So, maybe NOW I can try to reconstruct my long-winded post about the joys of making myself sore through the judicious use of car cleaning products this past weekend.

Ah, yes, MFJWHS (who hates Sugarmama), since all of those extremist right-wingers over at his office thought that I was a flaming liberal (since I'm centrist and all, that is SO, SO WEIRD).

Well, yeah. I mean, come ON!

Anyway, George says hey. ;)

Ah, yes! George was my favorite! Never met a coworker with less manners than he has.

And one with the ability to make another man feel rather unclean after being near him. Gotta love that.
