I love you, Raven.



UPDATE: She will not be going under the hammer at Carmax afterall. Through Craigslist, she'll be shipped tomorrow to Africa. There was competition between the buyer (a vehicle exporter) and his rival who exports to Costa Rica. Apparently this is a big business down here, with Toyota, Honda and Mercedes being the most desirable. Raven is considering this a post-retirement adventure. She is reading Baroness Karen von Blixen's Out of Africa and will probably have it finished by the time she is rolled off the ship in Mombasa.

I smell an emmy.

You're too good, FT

Brilliant. What a lovely thing to watch on a quiet Saturday morning. Appropriately, I muted NPR's Car Talk so I could listen to you and Raven.

tater said...

*APPLAUSE* Yay! That was wonderful!

More please.

Check engine light has all to do with emissions, and almost nothing to do with mechanical problems. Don't let CarMax hose you. Get the emissions tested before you sell Raven, pay the hundred bucks or less to get it fixed, make hundreds more on the sale.

Damn, that's good! If only you didn't tire of starting out at the top!

It would have been nice, to have a sequel.

He shared 162,000 miles with you. Now that's something to be 'raven' about!

You're so cool, Father T.

WAS THAT REALLY YOU FT? IF IT WAS... OMG... I had no idea you had great acting talent! WOW!

Dray said...

You've got another fan Tony.
And I could add you to my Silver Fox list I see. Great!

Doralong said...

I think a weekly webcast is in order for your legions of fans.

That was positively hysterical! At least she'll hopefully be in one of the more arid regions and won't have to bitch about the humidity anymore.

Do you have any idea what they do to gay cars in Africa? Reconsider and send him off to Costa Rica! Very gay friendly down there!

henry said...

Considering the stress you already put on the poor thing - shouldn't you accompany Raven to her new home?

Dear Caddy Jean,
Nope. C is not a performer of any kind. Perhaps that is why we get along so well. When left to my own devices (as I am for long stretches in Fort lauderdale) I am all the voices in my life, and via playback tools, I sometimes get to hear them!
