Kris-Ra, Princess of Power
On Saturday morning I changed my own passenger-side headlight. In heels. And a great looking pair of jeans.

Yesterday I Maguyvered the plastic trim back on the window with nail glue. And still made it to my lunch date on time.

I felt like a rock star. A rock star who needs a new car.

Nail glue...and a match, right? Or a toothpick? Perhaps a cotton swab.

Miss you, Krisser! Have been sick. Who gets mono at 33? Love your new format! Are you doing these yourself? Might have to beg you for design advice. I love my blog master, my brother, but he has fallen down on the job. And I'll use that as my excuse for why I rarely write these days. It's just not prettttty enough.

Ummm. You're the greatest.

Nothing is as empowering as fixing your own car.

And then you realize that you have to fix your own car.

Stupid cars.

Ah well.
Our car will be at your service when you visit.
With it's oft-replaced headlights/taillights and airbags.

Isn't fixing your car on your own a great feeling? It might take me twice as long, but it's nice not to feel like a wimp!

That's such a music video scene. Tires, tight jeans, and heels. So vixen.

being able to (at least kinda) fix your own car is sexier than a new car, don't ya think?

I had to teach my (brand-new at the time) boyfriend how to change a tire once. He was quite embarrassed....

I'm not gonna lie. I kinda felt like Tawny Kitaen. But less whore-ish.

Please tell me what brand of jeans. Are they Sevens or do they have the cute button pockets on the butt?

I am NOT worthy! Way to go! Doing tough girl sh*t while looking Fabulous! Atta girl!

Oh yeah, fixing a car in heels is hot. Makes you feel like you're queen of the world.
But driving around town with a tail light cover made out of red duct tape is kind of cheesy. Oops - Forgot I need to fix that!! :-)

Blogger Miss Scarlet said...

I'm so impressed!


And ecstatic that your wish list=JCrew.

Blogger Marissa said...

Hahaha!

But think about it, if you got a new car where else would you use all these mad maguyvering skills?! I say keep the car and keep on rocking!

How impressive! Maybe you can get good enough that you construct your own car out of toothpicks, bubble gum and a vibrator. I'm sure you can figure it out.

You'd only really be Tawny Kitaen if you lay a beating on some poor baseball player.

Cheers for independence! I took down some ugly valance contraption at the house I just moved into. It weighed about a thousand pounds. I also patched holes and glued a towel rack back into place.

Good for us!

If you want to meet hot guys don't be so idependant when it comes to things like that! geesh! Give us the "poor little me" act after you write your dissertation on the "after effects of male emasculation on their ego". Did you have heels on to?

Blogger Shawn said...

You rock...that's all I've got. Just the fact that you rock so hard makes me happy (just short of giddy actually, but we'll just stick with happy).

Cheers.
