When the going gets tough...

...the tough go to the Kwik-E-Mart!

Had my lousy court date today. My attorney was late, which was very uncool. The experience was not pleasant, but at least it's over.

When I left the hearing, I realized I was about 2 miles from one of the 12 North American Kwik-E-Mart locations. So, to cheer myself up, I drove over to check out the Simpsons facade. It's cute - and in a pretty run-down area. I hope it brings some cheer to the folks who live around this location.

Marge sizes up a fellow shopper...

Digging in my pocket, I realized I didn't even have enough cash in my pocket for a newspaper and a Squishee. So after snapping this photo, I got back into my burn-your-fingers-on-the-steering-wheel crapmobile and hit the road for home.

I powered napped a bit and watched a little "Dead Like Me" on SciFi until some moron starting calling my cell phone over and over again. I finally snapped and yelled at them. I was very unpleasant. Very, very unpleasant. I suggested to the caller that I would be happy to share their number with some law enforcement agencies. Aaaand, the calls have stopped.

Ahhhh.

Today's been surreal. I look forward to a less surreal day tomorrow.

Well, at least you didn't witness people having sex in their car at the Kwik-E-Mart.

... or did you?!?

Excellent! I have to remember the law enforcement agencies line.

Belle - amazingly, for my track record, no sex whatsoever! (But read my next post, and we'll get back on track...)

Janet - I swear, it worked like a dream. BAM! End of the calls. :)
