A Scrambled Leap


Nothing new has happened. I just wanted a date stamp that said February 29. Although I still don’t understand why it’s called a “leap year.” Leaping, to me, implies springing forward. But shoving an extra 24 hours into the year kinda slows the whole thing down by… well, by 24 hours. Am I missing something?

I’m taking a photography class, but so far have nothing to show for it. (Hence the lack of mentioning it, previously.) Unfortunately, after class #2 and still no concept of what I’m doing, or how to get the damn things onto my computer not to mention onto the program, which I am still afraid to load onto said computer, I fear the whole thing can’t bode well for my aspiring photo-journalist skeelz.

The Funasaurus is taking me to a basketball game, tonight. Confession: I am going to watch the cheerleaders and eat junk food.

Mmmm, Dippin' Dots.

I can’t get rid of the car I crashed. I tried to donate it, but they want the title, which I have conveniently lost. I found out you can get a duplicate of the title if you go to the DMV, so I went to the DMV. Except apparently I somehow managed to register the car without the title ten years ago, so the title is still back in California. So I called the California DMV, and they had me fill out 42 forms and then some, and then they told me to do it on-line, except I can’t, because you’re not allowed to if you don’t have a California driver’s license. I haven’t had one of those since Savage Garden was hot. So I am mailing in the forms, although they don’t seem to want any information that doesn’t pertain to California, which is unfortunate, because I have no such information, including a NAME, which I have also changed since CA knew me. But they will still take my $17, thank you very much.

I am not-so-slowly going crazy.

I know a secret, but I’m not allowed to tell, and oh! It’s very exciting. I will tell just as soon as I am allowed.

Have a great weekend!

The car title thing sounds like a slow-going nightmare that you can't wake out of.

As a "leap year" was not recognized in English law, the extra calendar day was leapt over, or ignored. So sayeth Google (I was curious, too).

I say throw the entire bungling DMV process out with the baby and start over. Either that or create your own title and see who notices...

That's our CA DMV - on the cutting edge of bureaucracy

Melissa said...

Happy Leap Year! Secret? What secret? I can keep a secret. And yes, we finally went to the beach!

Angela said...

Oh, for serious? I don't know WHY the blogosphere is eating all of my comments! Where are they going? Why is this happening to meeee?

Anyway, I think I just said something along the lines of, "Secret? What secret! I want to know a secret! I'll never tell! XOXO~Gossip Girl"

Meno- I left one on your blog, too.

Red- You ain't kidding.

Pauline- I KNEW you'd know! Thanks!

Diane- Sadly, I don't think Colorado's DMV is much better. Those places make me CRAZY.

Melissa- You look cute on the beach, with your little canvas bag, too.

Angela- I will tell you, send me an e-mail. ;-)
