random nonsense

I was sitting in my truck yesterday,
while my husband ran into the store and I was just
taking some random pics to pass the time
and I snapped this pic...


I have had the same thing hanging from my
rear view mirror since I was 18
It has been in every vehicle I have ever owned
it's my

"I'm not a happy camper" key chain
and it's a classic

FACT: Most people have some sort of nonsense hanging
from their rear view mirror
whether it's an air freshener shaped like a pine tree or fuzzy dice

But obviously.. I have the coolest item by far...

What's hanging from your mirror?

A sort of Christmas ornament from Rent that I bought the 7th time I saw it on Broadway. It says NO DAY BUT TODAY on one side and the lyrics to Seasons of Love on the other side.
And a plug for my i-pod that gets plugged directly into my radio and the other side into my the i-pod

Nothing. I can't stand shit haning from the mirror.

It's illegal out here.
You could get pulled over, or worse!

That's great. We don't have anything hanging from our mirror. (

We were driving on the highway on Sunday and since it was a holiday weekend here in Canada we ended up getting stuck in traffic. For some reason I spent some time looking at what other people had hanging from their rear view mirrors. the oddest one was a stuffed bear with a pine deodorizer hung on each side of the bears head so that the pine trees looked like the stuffed bears ears. Well, it did to me anyway. LOL

It's not hanging from my mirror...It's on my dash and it kicks ass... It's a wonder woman figurine that Jen gave me about 15 years ago for my birthday ...It has been in every car, suv, and minivan I have ever owned.

I don't have anything hanging from my mirror. I used to, but people kept breaking into my car and stealing them. I guess for the "collectible" aspect of it all. It's all sure to go up in value, since they once belonged to Mister Dick Small. Not to mention all the paparazzi that hound me day and night, but I don't want to get off-topic....

Teri said...

I'm uncool as well, I have nothing hanging.

Mo said...

Um, I would exactly BRAG about that, Teri....

A small stuffed Chococat head. (For the uninitiated, that's Hello Kitty's boyfriend.) I don't get why it's just a head, though. He's cute, but wouldn't he be cuter if he weren't just a disembodied head?

I've never particularly had a desire to have anything hang from my rearview mirror.

I tihnk the oddest thing I've seen is a taxi with a square air freshener that had a naked woman's portrait, from the neck down to the thighs.

It is illegal here also to have stuff hanging from the mirror.

My head-band with sunglasses
hanging from the head-band!

I know totally typical, but I have my mom's panties hanging from the rearview mirror.

Mo said...

Hahaha!! Now I don't know WHY that's funny, but that is totally hysterical...

Teri said...

hahahaha, Dick. I just reread and laughed at myself.

But since I'm a GIRL I can say these things and not feel my woman hood lacking......

I have a fancy pair of roach clips hanging from my rear view mirror... hey, just in case! you never know!!!

monkey said...

I have fuzzy dice

Ellie said...

my son's first pair of shoes.

mixednut said...

Gosh Jen, why such an unhappy camper?
I think you're due for another camping trip!

Jen said...

Kim- BWaaHAHahaHAHA
that wonder women figure
does kick ass
I should do a
post about it! Take a pic!

Sometimes a handicap placard, but usually nothing.

A tiny faceted crystal ball. When it spins and the sun hits it just right, it's like a disco in the car. Rockin'

I used to have Mardi Gras beads. Now, I have nothing. For the longest time, I had my graduation tassle. I need to get something though. It's like a landmark for me when I'm looking for my car in a parking lot. From behind, it's the personalized license plate, from the front it's....something.

My mirror fell off a few years ago and I'm too lazy to try and glue it back up.
