I Can Listen to You, It Keeps Me Stable for Nights

My first thought when Dmarks gave us this week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt word involved a certain Mr. Ric Ocasak and his band. You know...The CARS. Yes, this week's word is CARS. Gary Neuman sang about them, we drive them (or at least ride in them), and the American industry that builds them has been famously or infamously "bailed out". I live in Southern California, so they are everywhere.

See? This is what I might be looking at on my way to work. CARS, CARS, and more CARS. Yes, I did take that while driving. No that is not so safe, sorry. I refrained from photographing the many lots selling CARS that I pass by each day. So there's that.

Sometimes CARS make life fun. Driving can give you a chance to think, listen to music, or talk to whoever might be along for the ride. Yesterday, Friday, I went to the grocery store with Milly at lunchtime. We listened to The Chipmunks Christmas CD. Me, I want a hula hoop. It was the first thing that has made me feel at all holiday-ish, so kudos to CARS I say!

Finally, sometimes SNL is still funny. This skit from last week about parents, teens, and CARS made me laugh...

You saw my CARS. You were very well behaved and did not distract the driver, so I thank you. All that is left now, is to see who Dmarks will tag for next week's Hunt :-)

I remember having cars all around me on my way to work. I have heard about SoCal rush hours, are they true?

Good examples of CARS, thank you, and I see we have the same idea when it comes to title.

it's all the cars that determine when I arrive in LA

I was once attacked by a car. It's name was Charlie and it wanted to eat me. I am still traumatized over this experience to this day.

Sadly the incident didn't involve a grizzly bear.

AlienCG: Everything you've heard about our rush hours are true. It is something you just get used to and account for when planning drive times.
Aw! We love Gary N.

Dmarks: Loved your CARS post! It is always fun when you play. Now...who gets the tag?

NoRegrets: Yes, cars are an essential element in planning in these here parts. *sigh*

Sebastien: Was Charlie a friend or relative of Christine? Or My Mother, the Car?
And don't be so sure a bear was not involved in that attack. Sometimes they send others to do their dirty work.

Thanks, Ananda :-)

Sebastien said...

Holy crap, are you trying to tell me the car attack is actually secretly part of a bear conspiracy to get rid of me??! I'm going to contact the local authorities about this.

laura b. said...

Sebastien: Yes, alert the authorities. But only once you are certain they aren't in cahoots with the bears.
