California dreamin'


In case you are not in on the loop, I'm living in San Diego now. I have communication problems. The day before I left my sister called and said that she had heard from one of my dad's employees that I was moving to San Diego. This was the first she had heard the news. Then as I was packing my car my brother asked, "Where are you going?" as if he expected a response along the lines of "The local market." So now I am informing all of you. I moved.
I went to the DMV the other day. Quite the experience. Plebeians a plenty. I have a driver's license but I still don't have a Von's card. I don't think they need to track every grocery I purchase, so I enter the phone number 8675 three oh nine. I go there daily to get my tub of ice cream and be a fat girl that watches American Idol. The checker lady is starting to think we are friends. She calls me by name and even tells me how much I saved each time. Last night she said, "Thank you Mr. Dandy. You saved $1.14." I smile, nod, and wish her a pleasant evening. My receipt has the name Jim Dandy circled on it. Today she said, "Hi Jim, you're back." I have a new alias.

YOU MOVED WITHOUT TELLING, AND NOW YOU'VE CHANGED YOUR NAME??

Spill it. What crime did you commit and why are you running from the law??

So wait are you committing grocery store preferred savings ID fraud? Or did you apply under Jim Dandy? Oh that is so funny.

I sang your phone number as I read it without even thinking. You rock! I hope you had a very happy birthday old man! I mean young 19 year old!! :)
And I also have to say that I am very impressed you went to the DMV or is it MVD already. I still haven't gone. I have my whole spheal planned out if I get pulled over. I just moved there last week. And when they realized my car and insurance were registered in the state I now claim to reside for almost a year, I say...yah, my husband came first. I hope it works!!! :) Good thing the only time I have ever been pulled over was right after Seminary graduation. The officer thought I was drunk. Nice! I told him where I was coming from and he let me off the hook. Sooo....so far so good!

I just hit play on your movie. I thought you were tricky and playing a mind game. WEll, you were, but some may have watched the movie first and already had the tune in mind.
