1 door car
I am probably the only person who owns a 1 door car. Well, sure, I have four of them, but only one of them now works.
It began quite some time ago with the rear drivers side door. The internal lock mechanism fell apart and fixing it would have been ridiculous. Besides, who needs it? Its only one door..
Then the front passenger door internal lock mechanism rusted out, fell apart, whatever it did, it permanently locked the door. Ok, this was a bit more of a nuisance- especially for picking up friends and for putting stuff in the car/ taking out. But we still managed.. and had a good laugh.
So for quite some time, I have been gratefully operating with a working drivers side door and rear passenger. There are creative ways to get around and through everything. Unlocking the drivers door to unlock the rear, which I'd then run around to the other side of the car to put stuff it. Or just toss it over the seat when needed. With friends, well, we usually opted to jump in their car when we go places.
And tonight, another door lock mechanism kicked the bucket.
and the lucky door... drivers door!!!!
So my lovely one door car is a trooper. And so am I.
I cracked myself up crawling into the back seat and flinging myself over the front seats to situate myself behind the steering wheel. Good thing flexibility and a sense of humor are strong points.
road trip anyone? hehe
not sure if i will feel the same come daylight-- when i take my car in to see if the door can be salvaged, even if it means that it is permanently unlocked. Given the choice, I will take it.
haha, or maybe a compatible door from another car can be put on..
it will all work out, it always does.
I am envisioning a new car/truck.. just need to pick one out :)

I will have to do a recap much like last year (have to find the post)
It was a strange year- full of highs and lows. I was definitely master of my domain..
not sure if I am better off from where I started, but I wll reflect on all that later.
so what is the theme for 2007? hmmm.. not sure yet-
maybe tonight will provide some insight--
soooooooooooooo on that note...
I am working on hyrdating my body now- as multiple bottles of champagne will be conquered this evening! woo!
(e:ladycroft) and myself will be dressed silly this evening (e:theecarey,349)
