- This journey,
boy... it really is a therapy for me to sit down and
try to collect my thoughts and not freak the
motherfuck out any more. I've done that for a couple
hours already. Here, I'll just post the video from the
DMV and then explain what the hell it all
- And once again we
find ourselves with what should be a nice 5 minute
documentary-style video that I'm going to keep to
myself because it's CLEARLy going in a sequel and
I can't give it all away now. This is all still
the aftermath of the fire. So we start last
- ...I go to
AAA to order my new 4tvs.com tags because the other
ones were destroyed in the fire. We do the entire
transaction, $43.00, and then as I'm leaving the guy
says he needs my old tags back.
- I explain to
him that there's a plethora of babies I'd rather
throat punch then ever lose these plates. I ask
to speak to a manager even though I never, ever, ever,
make that play. I simply explain how long I've had
them, that the fire could've killed me and these are
valuable as hell to me. They said they couldn't do
anything, but I might be able to plead my case to the
DMV directly. I thanked them, got all of my money
back and made an appointment for the DMV.
- I get to the
DMV today, thrilled I made an appointment and
promptly get my ticket, sit down and look at my phone
where there's an email that the movie is
ALREADY LIVE ON AMAZON WHAT THE FUCKING HOLY SHIT BALLS.
- I try to
contain my compusure, my body has different plans, and
then of course I'm immediately called to a window
(make appointments, people. it rocks). I try to
refrain from my METHY behavior while at the window,
but can't seem to stop jumping around. The reason is
- Suddenly, after a
year of this all being in my head and no one really
believing I would make this, yadda yadda... it is
legit. It is ON AMAZON RIGHT NOW:
The legitimacy that adds to EVERYTHING is just
soverwhelming and add to that? Now Kenny will see it.
We all know how he reacted to the trailer, oh this
isn't going to be good. But it's like a band-aid: now
we can deal with THAT. Can't possibly get worse than
- So I want to
scream and jump and yell but I have to now plead
my case for when this lady asks for my plates.
I do, she talkes to a supervisor who I can
slightly hear within earshot: "if they're mangled,
it's fine." and HOLY SHIT I get to keep
them. Here's how the law works out here with personal
- If you wish to
KEEP your personalization, you must give them one of
your plates. If you've lost both of them, they
WILL not give you that personalization again. You
must surrender at least one. I lost my other one years
ago while on a long trip. Just rattled off during the
tow. So they had to make a caveat and thankfully they
did. I would've gone to 100 DMVs until they gave
me the answer I needed. Of course next in this
fucking drama is passing a smog check by May 24th.
Yeeeeeeeeeeeah. Whole 'nother story.
- But for today
ladies and gentleman! EVERYTHING IS AWESOME.
EXCEPT FOR WHAT'S COMING ANY FUCKING MOMENT.
No way after I announced it through my Fastest
Delorean page that he won't see it by the end of the
night. He's a night owl, so I'm putting my phone on
silent and trying to sleep. Yeah good luck with
- What a day man.
What, a, day.
- PS - he just
texted at 11:04pm his time. It deserves it's own
entry. Cliffhanger. Sorry.
