Just Write

A wise man once told me the best way to get over writers' block is to just plow through it and write.

So here we go.

Hmm. Well. Swagger Wagon. This is a hilarious video that More_Than_A_Mom told me about.

It shows two people who are around my age, bumpin' and dancin' around their fly ride - a Toyota Sienna minivan.

The video is actually quite clever and elicited more than a couple chuckles from me, even though I am the furthest thing away from driving a minivan.

The fact is, I drive a stick shift, and have for about 10 years or so.

When I got my first standard - a VW Jetta - I swore I'd never drive anything but a stick. Five years ago I got my Saab 9-3, thinking it a very reasonable family car (why the hell was I thinking about family cars at 28 years old??)

I've aways thought it would be difficult to drive a stick shift with little ones in tow. How will I turn around and give them their dropped pacifier? How will I turn around and give them their bottle? How will I turn around and swat their ass?

Now, I am entertaining thoughts of getting a sweet sports car when this car decides to call it quits.

At 9 years of age and 98K miles, I imagine I'll be cruising in the Saab for quite some time.

It is fun to dream about cars though.

Sometimes, I envision shifting gears and plowing down roads in a Porsche 911. Not one of the new ones that look like a Barbie car. No, what I'd really love is something from the late 60s or early 70s. Something that would go fast, turn heads and be fun.

Like me.

I keep seeing advice on how to blog that frankly is coming from people with no idea how to blog. They keep saying not to blog if you're not in the mood.
What if Votto got up to bat and thought, you know, I don't think I'm going to hit a home run today, it will probably only be a single, so whats the point?
See? You have to hit a lot of singles to get those home runs.
Keep blogging Kate!
