Until 2001, the state of Louisiana issued April license plate stickers for both April and May. As someone born in May, a license plate collector and an OCD completist, this always bugged me. Why did they do that?
Speaking of "they"... Once in my Head Start class, I was coloring something as part of an assignment and the teacher said something like, "color inside the lines they put there." And I thought, "Who is 'they' and why do 'they' get to decide where I can color?" Yes, I've always been like this.
They (one of the "theys") say that April showers bring May flowers. Now I'm not up on the adult-film genre, but "April Showers" sounds like it could be a pretty steamy porn. To say nothing of the inevitable sequel, "May Flowers." Or perhaps, "May's Flower."
I always wanted to date a girl named after a month. At least until I met June.
January Jones. That's her real name. It's amazing that she's in "Mad Men" and not in, well, a different version of "Mad Men."
Speaking of "mad men"... check out this screen capture from a site selling tea party T-shirts. I don't remember the site or the particular shirt, other than that it was horrible even by extremist right-wing standards. I won't judge the demographics of this particular fringe group, even if they appear to skew toward older, fatter white people with tacky fashion sense. That's what this cap is for:
Many years ago, before a media law class in college, one of my classmates asked excitedly, "Did you hear G. Gordon Liddy yesterday?" No. The answer to that question is always no.
I could write a whole blog on questions to which the answer is always no. I could probably fuse it seamlessly into a retelling of every political discussion I've ever had in the state of Louisiana.
And to bring this blog entry full circle, a question for the Louisiana DMV: why are the year numbers on the validation stickers flatter and wider now? Is it related to the obesity epidemic?
