one without so much ferret

I’m only posting this because I’m sick of looking at those stupid fucking ferrets.

While I certainly have plenty to talk about, I’m actually way too aggravated – not to mention fatigued – to be all that eloquent.

It’s just been one of those weeks at work. The ones where everything breaks and you get caught holding the bag for crap that’s someone else’s fault. You know the kinda think I mean, you know you do.

In our case, it’s a combination of tool problems, pilot errors, and impossible expectations, coupled with new management and executive personnel who haven’t quite figure out that mean team are the Ghostbusters and Team America and Winston Wolf all rolled into one. Oh, they’re figure it out after a while, but not ’til after they try to manage us for a while (and when I say manage, I mean et in our goddamn way).

Oh, and there’s that choice to double our workload, now, with no resources and no ramp time, and no budget. Thank You Sir, May I Have Another.

But nevermind. I just want those ferrets gone.

Meanwhile, I’m trying to figure out what to have embedded in one of these incredibly cool custom-made shift knobs for my car. I can’t decide if i should take one of my skull rings (one of the ones I like the least), or if I should get a flaming spade from my friend Carlos from Sinners in. Or maybe some kind of pin that says elvis if I can find the right one (I want something in silver script). The guy can also embed stuff like pins or badges or even something like a poker chip or a spade cutout from a playing card.

Too many choices. And I’m open to ideas. I don’t wanna spend a shit-load of money though ’cause I’m already spending too much on crap for this car (it’s that kinda car)

There. Now at least we’re somewhat ferret-free.

  1. Embedded shifter knob is a very cool idea. If he can embed something like a cutout from a playing card, why go with the expensive like a flaming spade or one of your rings? I’d be looking for a graphic from any source, including paper or even small toys (the head bit from the dashboard pirate over at Archie McPhee, for example).

  2. I kind of like the ones with an object, and the objects I’m thinking one, one’s already something I own and the other won’t cost me much. So it all comes down to aesthetics.

    I have a feeling I’m going to wind up with more than one of these things. Now I need another car!

  3. thanks for ridding us of the ferrets! and rant on baby! huuuuuuuuuuuggggggggsssssss and Kisssssssssssses! very cool about the knob. I like the idea of somthing 3-D in it..and you can always swap them out if you get more than one!

  4. Oh this is an opportunity to use your imagination…

    Take a 3-D plastic cube and pictures of your family on the outside. OK. Maybe just sexy women that you could pretend are your family.

    Find a tiny pair of handcuffs. Or a tassle made of leather that looks like a flail.

    You love the Day of the Dead. Some decoration there?

    A shot glass from Hawaii?

  5. I imagine a kilt wearing/loving man such as yourself would have handy your family crest. A picture of that on the top of the knob would make it a real family car.



  6. Devil – pinups, yes,family no. I don’t want them lookin’ at what I might do behind the wheel. Handcuffs, though? That I like.

    Jeff, that’s just fucked up. man. I’m almost tempted.

    Eve, you’re onto something.

  7. Random thought on the drive home: Hit your local craft store for charms and buttons, and hit your local Claire’s or something in the mall for charms from jewelry. Funky-cool weird little things. I still have dinosaur buttons from when ConMan was an infant.

  8. There’s a high street chain over here that’s selling necklaces with tiny handcuffs on. That would be cool!!
