Or, if you prefer, Barbie New Year!
The holiday season was full of magic and wonder, and the Barbie Dream Hearse was full of elves and party-goers celebrating Christmas and NYE. Driving the Sugarplum Elves was a great way to enjoy yet another Santacon, this time from the comfort of my living room on wheels. I dressed up as a santa girl, and all the elves were adorable. I took some fantastic dark, out-of-focus pictures on my Sidebrick, which is now probably sitting at the bottom of a lake because no pawn shop would take it. RIP, old phone. We will always remember the good times.
For Christmas, my website got a new navigation bar. Big thanks to Greg at Live Dog Productions for making my site more user-friendly while staying true to my logo and theme. If you’re reading this post on Facebook and haven’t taken a look yet, go now!
For New Year’s, I received a hand-me-down Crackberry to answer your calls and emails. Now I can officially call myself a busy business lady whose life is missing something but she doesn’t realize it because she’s so busy with business. Take the internet, for example. It’s serious business.
For Betweenodays*, I finally fixed the iPod connector on my jack-of-all-trades head unit. Although my taste in music is so excellent that you shouldn’t even want to play your iPod through my stereo, you are of course more than welcome to, especially now that it’s plug-and-play.
For January Afterburn*, I installed my fancy new(ish) air filter and got my oil changed. Econo Lube is now one of my favorite places in Everett, alongside Sam’s Gun Shop, Northway Aviation, and Water Tectonics. The guys there were friendly and knowledgeable, and (this is key) they were actually ready to do the work at the time of my scheduled appointment. I know this is a real shocker, but no matter how pretty you or your car may be, if a shop is busy, you have to wait.
So far, Barbie is rolling through the beginning of 2011 looking as fine as the day she arrived in Emerald City. Here’s to another year of wild rides!
*These are days I made up and probably don’t warrant gifts or celebrations from anyone’s perspective but mine, but I’m still pretty stoked.
