Wednesday- Just Lock Me UP, I'd be better off

Yeah... don't you just love those surprise gifts you weren't expecting? I have a handicapped thingy, I haven't really driven anywhere that I had to park in over a month and I totally forgot to hang it on the mirror when I parked at the Y today. Now I get to go to court and plead NOT GUILTY, with an excuse. LOL. I am an idiot. If the policeman had just looked inside the pocket on the drivers side door he would have seen it and maybe could have hung it up for me since I obviously only had one thing on my mind... BIG POOL. I almost landed myself in the BIG HOUSE. LOL

Speaking of HOUSE did anyone watch it last night? OK maybe not the best show for me to watch 30 days post op from a gastric bypass. Crazy huh? Her cure was chocolate cake? In a dream world maybe.

Still no knitting for me... but Bea had a Meme on her blog about Christmas so I thought since I haven't knitted anything all week I'd put that on the blog today.

Sleep tight.

Turtle said...

ouch, yeah go to traffic court, i'm sure they will drop it.

katerina said...

not so nice to get the ticket, but nice knowing it'll get dropped! The temp. tags fall to the floor all the time, so I'm sure it's happened to others.

I'm with you on the eggnog..EEEWWWIE!

I'm thinkin' the ticket is probably an opportunity to do or say something that will make someone's day. I'm sure you'll handle it well. :)

Kenyetta said...

I am sure the ticket will be throw out when you go to court.
I can't stand egg nog either!

Unknown said...

I hope you can get out of that ticket! Interesting reading your Christmas answers. I liked eggnog until I had some homemade and took a big gulp of raw egg. Yuck!

Sorry about the ticket!!

Really--a dish drainer and a box of tampons?? And I thought my iron and ironing board were a bad gift. You've got me beat on this one!!

Did you have a good time at the pool??


Unknown said...

dish drainer and box of tampons . . . yet another reason why my hubby and I don't exchange presents. I would spend forever finding the perfect gift and he would buy me a vacuum. I just know it.

My Mom got a ticket for handicap tag abuse. They threw it out when she showed up with her tag. Her's was laying on her dashboard because the hook thing was cracked.

I love HOUSE too!! But yea, kinda ironic for you. I wish the solution to everything was Chocolate Cake!

Sucks about the parking ticket, but at least you have a valid argument... my parking tickets have always been the meter running out before I can get back.
