By Your Powers Combined, I’m Driving to the Verge!

Mah Baby

This week it occured to me that my car is more than just a car. I have 2005 Hyundai Elantra with custom leather seats, and I love her very much. I spend a lot of time in my car, and it’s not always to get to and from work and errands. My car is many things all in one, four door paradise. In addition to being a transportation device, my car is:

A Cafeteria
I eat lunch in my car a lot, especially if people start bothering me too much in the break room. No, I will not track your shipment or stuff those envelopes for you now. Can’t you see I’m eating, Dumbass?!

A Nail Salon
Why do my nails at home, when I can do them in the car during lunch? Setting the air conditioning to the foot vents makes for a great nail dryer!

A Studio
When I have to practice lines and/or music for recording projects, I rehearse in my car during lunch. I sometimes have jam sessions in there, too, just for fun. My solo concerts are epic.

A Library
I read and listen to audio books in my car during lunch. So far, I listened to the entire Twilight Series (I couldn’t imagine reading it.), some Anne McCaffery books and the first six or so books in The Wheel of Time. I have read a bunch, too. I’ve decided to keep a “car book,” specifically for car reading. My current car book is Soul Music by Terry Pratchett, and I’m enjoying it thus far.

An Office
Since I don’t have a fancy pants, corner office, I conduct my business in my car, like phone interviews and stuff.

For my fridge song this week, I embraced inspiration I had from my previous Captain Planet memo. I couldn’t resist inverting the color of my face in a photo and sticking it on the eco-friendly hero.

Frozen Dinner!
Pop Tart!


By your powers combined I am Captain Prentice!

Captain Prentice, she’s our hero,
Taking fridge pollution down to zero.
She and Trash Can are allied,
and they’re fighting on the fridge’s side.

Captain Prentice, she’s our hero,
Taking fridge pollution down to zero,
Gonna clean-up lunchtime blunders,
Sad guys on Monday  will feel hunger!

“You’ll pay for this Captain Prentice!”

We’re refrig-eteers,
You can be one too!
‘Cause cleaning our break room is the thing to do,
Scooting thus polluting is not the way,
Hear what Captain Prentice has to say:
