|I never knew Chery made a convertible!|
Kistiñe's baggie-doll friends were sold out except for her own blue self. The last box of Just Kidz African-American triplets had vanished. Bratz of various sorts had appeared from the back room, all marked above eBay's going rate and, in the case of My Passion Cloe, above her clearance price at the other Kmart in town.
However, there was one Just Kidz Glamour Doll and Convertible (or, as some call it, Muñeca y Automóvil Glamorosos).
|Drove my Chery to the quarry, but the quarry was dry...|
I downloaded Quick Scan's bar code reader to my phone, scanned the bar code, and determined that Kmart's regular price is $11. (Yes, of course, I now scan every random bar code I see. I get bored easily, but damn, I can keep myself entertained.)
|"Coche deportivo" is "sports car," useful in the car lots south of Van Buren.|
Reader, I bought it.
|There's no more cardboard above me. There's... sky.|
Further progress was stopped by the car being held in place with two of these.
|The technical term for this is a "thingie."|
Katie, being the one with mechanical skills, wants to look under the hood.
|Is it possible to build a two-cylinder car? Because I think this is a two-cylinder car.|
|You can hear the music on the AM radio. The VCR and DVD, there wasn't none of that crap back in 1970.|
|We can make it to Mexico City, siting in the back seat of my car.|
|Trust your mechanic to mend your car.|
|With the seat this far back, it's hard to steer, but I do need space for my knees!|
|Low gear is great for slopes and going off-road!|
|Be careful! Those tend to change lanes without signaling!|
|We're lucky to be coming through here when there aren't any trains playing switch engine.|
|If you can sign the title over now, we're good to go.|
|Maybe I should get a cap. And goggles. And a duster.|
Hayden, are you SURE the speed limit here is 40?
|Before you get too crazy, here's how to ride the bus -- it's easy!|
Before revealing her plans, let's take a look at what Just Kidz is selling, since I'm fascinated by Barbie clones and fakies.
Her little pointy feet are the same size as the feet of Dolores the Dollar Tree Beauty, a.k.a. singer Ambiguous Brown. Indeed, Ambi promptly stole her shoes.
|It's so hard to get anything stylish in a size two!|
However, Ambi has the curvier figure of the two. Indeed, our newcomer's hips and legs seem designed by somebody whose only experience of "legs" involves furniture. . . spindly, modernist furniture.
|I totally got called "string bean" in school.|
|If I go on Dancing With the Stars, every routine is ending with this move!|
|I'm what happens when the cloning process gets. . blurry.|
Yes, I have the wholesale Alibaba app on my phone (see, "bored easily," above). No, I don't have an account. Because I'm afraid that my finger would slip as the bus hit a bump, and I'd find I'd just ordered five cartons of Newest! african doll - lovely - cheap price, to be shipped by freighter to Long Beach, where it would be held up by a strike. (I have no idea why the listing is in Doge. Wow.)
It's clear the newcomer needs a makeover as her quest for her dreams, not least because she has regrettable hair that can only hold a pony tail. After the glitter-redo for Ambi, I'm a bit fixated on glitter hair. So easy. So fun. So many colors in packs of six for $1!
Meet Annie Linux, programmer and hacker extraordinaire, and the newest employee at the spa.
|Your first job, Annie, will be to make sure our security is watertight.|
She's wearing Lovely Patsy's skinny jeans, a Liv sweatshirt, and Midnight Magic boots (which are too big for her) -- all dressed for an all-nighter at the computer.
