Life in the Sticks, Episode 4238....

So Mojo was late for an appointment (not REALLY late, but Mojo Late, which means she might get there only TEN MINUTES EARLY instead of her usual fifteen or so) so she jumps in the car and heads down the mountain to civilization.

One of the many things about living far, far away from other people is, if you are late to go ANYWHERE, you have the added burden of an additional half hour tacked onto your time, which can work FOR or AGAINST you. If the roads are clear of other pesky drivers you can make up the odd five minutes or so by screeching around the mountain passes like Mario Andretti. But if you get behind a school bus or a turtle, it will easily add another fifteen or twenty minutes to your commute. There is NO PLACE TO PASS, even if the other driver is aware of you and trying to pull over to be nice.

So anyway, I have this appointment to get my Favorite Husband's car serviced, and running just a hair late, so I jump in said car and screech out of the driveway. And a quarter of a mile into the trip I come to a screeching halt as a family of woodcocks are occupying the street, perhaps in protest of Mojo's screeching around in her car. (Note to Mojo's Favorite Mother: No, she is NOT actually screeching. She is Exaggerating for Comic Effect.)

Once Again a Bewildered, Clueless Mojo Struggles to Comprehend...

...this time more new car commercials, I think they are trying to sell Nissans. They depict some obnoxious young man attempting to be funny. Apparently as some sort of scientific experiment (?) he claims to be living out of whatever car it is that he owns. Why anyone would think this would be a selling point is beyond me.

They appear to be quickly edited home movies, like some poor schmoe with his DV camera and a copy of IMovie, and they begin, perhaps ironically, with a title along the lines of "A Film by So-and-So" as if they are pieces of art worthy of having someone's name attached to them. And they are not, which might make that some sort of incredibly funny joke except that nothing about them are even remotely funny enough to indicate the persons responsible for these commercials are intelligent enough to be ironic.
