Continuing My Legacy

If future generations remember me for only one thing, I’d hope it would be this: “Jennifer raised ‘fuck you’ to an art form.” In hopes of deserving such a reputation, here’s this week’s cover story for the Advocate: about 1300 words’ worth of me pointing out the perfidiousness of our local DMV.

If they hadn’t been such annoying pains in the ass when I tried getting a simple comment for my "Sisyphus/civil unions” article a few weeks back, this week's story would never have been written. Let that be a lesson to any government officials who try stonewalling me in the future: my boss WILL let me eviscerate you in print, so long as I promise to be funny about it.

Yes, yet again, I prove that I have NO life, being the first one to post on Jennifer's article since y'all are working

Commenting on my story at the paper? It's always good to let my editors see people actually READ MY STUFF.

At least, I sure hope they do. I'd hate to think I'm just shouting into the wind.

Bad customer service at the DMV is so dog-bites-man...but discovering you can get bad DMV customer service from the comfort of your own home...nice angle.

Thanks, Windy! I especially like the "silk purse/sow's ear" aspect of it. Anybody can write a decent story if they're lucky enough to stumble upon some major injustice the government's perpetrating on some innocent. But it's a lot harder to think of something to write during a slow news week.

Hmmm...decided lack of comments. I'm thinking to blow the roof off the servers trying to store the comments, you need to do a story on a Furry who was yiffin at the DMV, and got arrested, had their dog confiscated with a recommendation to put to sleep, then something happened to the dog which caused local law enforcement to get involved, and in the investigation it was discovered they had a same sex domestic partner. That would probably pull some in.

And the guy had untaxed out-of-state cigarettes hidden in his closet.

Hidden between the pages of his romance novel? Which was titled "Jennifer, for Phone when you're Alone"?

Just before he avoided a drunk-driving checkpoint on his way to the salon to get his naughty bits waxed before adopting a calm facial expression to prepare for his trip to the airport, yes.

...to prepare for his trip to the airport, yes.

After he got elected without really trying, which was because he was upset due to some teenage blogger who got tasered in a poker game for paying his taxes with a credit card and avoiding the fee, which in turn caused him or her to be taken from their parents by DCF, but it didn't matter as they had already moved out of state due to the high housing prices.


Hey, this IS the legacy post.

Actually, I think he moved out of state because he was offended by the anti-Semitic cartoons some anonymous douchewit mailed him after his 22 pet lapdogs violated town zoning codes.

Nah, it wasn't an anon douchewit, it was a ghost, specifically a ghost of a rat, who was killed while driving a hybrid on the way to a local gun store down on Blue Black Square.

(we're gonna end up on old H&R pretty quick at this rate...)

Just noting that it's approaching the weekly "Can Jennifer's boss get it up" watch....

Blogger Jennifer said...

Considering this week's two stories, I think the more relevant question is "Even if he could get it up, why bother?"

One story MIGHT be good, depending on how much of it managed to get through the editorial process unscathed. The other one--feh. It was one of those issues I had to treat with Consideration and Sensitivity.

That's all right. This is an open blogging relationship. I don't care, so long as you return to me each time.

And use protection. There's all kind sof nasty viruses out there.

Hardly - I think it's rather obvious who it is being the largest erection around here.
