I'll come up with something in a minute.

Tire Thumper

Holly bought an anti-spider stick, but she needed to justify the shipping. So she asked if I wanted anything. I suggested a Tire thumper, which is something you use to thump tires with. Only tires are to be thumped with the tire thumper. You think I’m joking? Let’s have a look…

It’s a cedar tire thumper, for checking tire pressure. Says so right on the slip.

You’ll notice I highlighted it, that’s because I want to point out just how many times that phrase pops up.

This is the first time, from the front of the slip of paper. It came in a plastic bag with this bit of cardboard stapled to it. use for checking tire pressure

Out of four sentences and six bullet points, they manage to mention that this is for checking tire pressure four separate times.

Thumping tires is serious business!

And yet… it’s sold under the name of Sportsman’s Choice.

I’d begun to wonder about how serious they were, but then I saw this printed right on the tire thumper itself

They must be serious then! I mean they put it right on the tire thumper!

Strange though, because to look at it, you’d think it was a truncheon.

I am now Grey Weirdo, everywhere!

Sooooo, this isn’t me leaving LJ or anything, I’m just expanding some. I’m trying to put my work and words into more places than just one.

To run down all the places where you can find me, I’m at LiveJournal, GreatestJournal, Insane Journal, Blogger, WordPress and Flickr. I think that’s everything.

My plan is that all the extra journals will be basically carbon copies of this one. I’ve got LJ Sec for the LJ based blogs and I’ll do my best with the other two. I assume after looking a little while that I’ll find a client for Blogger and WordPress to make posting there a little easier. We’ll see what happens.
