10:31 pm - Cheering myself up with vanity plates!

Seriously, nothing serious. I'm just hormonal and tired and I don't want tomorrow to be Monday because that means going to work. I am also having one of my occasional existential writer's crises, in which I bemoan the fact that I am not as talented a writer as whoever my current hero-worship is. Which, as I am rewatching Numb3rs season 1, would be Ken Sanzel, who wrote "Sniper Zero." He went on to write "Judgment Call," "Toxin," "Running Man," and "Rampage" in the second season, and I can't hack the math and plots like he can, and his dialogue includes Larry's line about children being wormholes, and I can't write like he can and OMG IF I CAN'T WRITE THAT WELL WHAT BUSINESS DO I HAVE WRITING AT ALL?!!!!?

Ahem. Yes, well, I had to vent. I feel a little bit better now. *sigh*

On to the cheering-up!


Spotted on a silver Jetta (of course):

*heart*MI JTA

With a similar theme:

L *heart*Z M

This guy is either mildly delusional or a sci-fi writer:

BN2MARS

Anybody want to help me translate this one?:

YEKOOBR

It was on a sweet little metallic-gold Mini Cooper, which I lusted after the entire time I drove behind it on the freeway.

I have to wonder if this next one is supposed to be ironic. On a bright yellow modern VW Beetle:

BRV BUG

Or does nobody know the connotation for "yellow" anymore?

This last one is specifically for you, whitemartyr:

That's all for now!

Yeah, I figured I wasn't the only one. Heh. Doesn't make it any more fun to climb out of, though, does it?

That's actually from a popular Mini advertising campaign run a few years ago in the UK. An actor dressed up like Chaucer would deliver an ode to the glory of the Mini Cooper, and despite there being several speeches with several ads, it would always start "Ye Cooper." It was supposed to be funny, but then again the British use metric humor.


No, that was patented JD hooey. :-D

Sort of a nice switcharound. :-)

Which is fine advice if you're actually thinking about the process, and fairly useless if one is thinking about one's end product.

Heh. Even without your disclaimer, I would have assumed that was JD-ness--your fondness for Middle English is memorable, especially to Artsy's writer. :-)

Though I did wonder if it was supposed to be something like that!

Oh I forgot to say. Silly, silly those guys who write that great have been doing it longer... all it'll take to get there is to KEEP WRITING... I have to tell myself that day after day. How old is Joss? How long as has been writing? All are heroes are at least in their later 30s... so breathe. And keep typing away. You'll get there. *pats*

*snicker* Yeah, what time of day did you write that? Good advice, but the grammer just escaped you there. :-D

I saw a Cooper yesterday with Union (British) flags on the side-view mirrors.

I think if I ever see one (or any car, really) that's painted all-over with a Union Flag (ala Austin Powers' Shaguar), I will buy it immediately, debt be damned.
