Missy considers herself the official greeter at Craig's Garage and so when I stepped out of the Marnmobile she immediately stuck her nose in my crotch.
Yes, there are many, many ways to say, "Hi, how are ya? Didya have a good weekend?" and apparently this is one of them.
I can testify that having a nose jammed in your nether regions, followed by loud snuffling sounds as owner of said nose inhales deeply, really does help shake the last of those Monday morning mental cobwebs.
I have mentioned that Missy is a dog, right?
It's that time of year again, time to get the Marnmobile ready for the thrills and chills of a Canuckian winter. Craig is undercoating it today, checking the brakes, the fluids and the tires.
Yep, soon the Marnmobile will be in peak condition, all 420 chipmunks worth of power throbbing under the trembling hood.
I wish it was as simple for me. Lately I've been feeling slightly off-kilter, restless. Maybe it's the encroaching winter. Maybe I need a new interest. I don't know what it is, but I feel something is missing.
Like my car, I need a fall tune-up.
I just don't quite know how to do it.
Want to delve into my sordid past?

This template is a riff on a design by the truly talented Quinn. Because I'm a html 'tard, I got alot of pity coding to modify it from Ms. Kittay, a woman who can make html roll over, beg, and bring her her slippers. The logo goodness comes from the God of Graphics, the Fuhrer of Fonts, the one, the only El Presidente. I smooch you all. The background image is part of a painting called Higher Calling by Carter Goodrich which graced the cover of the Aug. 3, 1998 issue of The New Yorker Magazine. Kids, don't try viewing this at home without Netscape 6 or IE 4.5+, a screen resolution of 800 X 600 and the font Mead Bold firmly ensconced on your hard drive.
