Day 78, March 31, 2010

For all you space geeks out there:

Falcon 1 is a fully liquid-propelled orbital launch vehicle. Um, yeah. Learn more here if you're so inclined.

Thanks to Melanie for finding this one for me!!

Day 77, March 30, 2010

This is either a reference to The Three Little Pigs or an ode to mary jane. Either way, I think I like it.

Day 76, March 29, 2010

It's Monday. I've been up since 6:45 am. It's barely 50 degrees, rainy, and gray.

Yup. That about sums it up.

Day 75, March 28, 2010

To round out Buffett week, here's a parrotthead who sums up the devotion pretty succinctly:

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Day 74, March 27, 2010

Buffett has his own chain of Margaritaville restaurants, named after his famous song, and in Margaritaville, they serve a drink called a rum runner, most likely made with Buffett's very own brand of rum. The driver of this car: clearly a fan.

Day 73, March 26, 2010

It's Friday, and while I'm DESPERATE for it to be 5 o'clock here, it does comfort me to know it's 5 o'clock sumwhr.

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Day 73, March 25, 2010

"Can't you feel 'em circlin', honey
Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around
You got fins to the left, fins to the right
And you're the only bait in town"

Another plate referencing lyrics from a popular Jimmy song, "Fins." If you read the entire lyrics, the whole thing has a bit of a to-catch-a-predator vibe. But it does involve booze and the beach, so it still has that distinct Buffett feel to it.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Day 72, March 24, 2010

This plate is a reference to a Buffett song entitled "The Wino and I Know," an ode to living on the beach and living life like a song. I don't know exactly what that means, but I suspect a lot of booze is involved.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Day 71, March 23, 2010

This plate references a song Jimmy did with Alan Jackson called, "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere." It's an ode to drinking whenever you damn feel like it, because no matter what time it is where you are, it's 5pm somewhere, and therefore, appropriate to imbibe.

It's 9:36am here, and I say, Cheers to that.

Day 70, March 22, 2010

Declaring one's love for Buffett doesn't get much more straight forward than that.

Theme Week!

I happen to live very close to a major concert venue. So close that I can sometimes hear the concerts from my backyard, and also so close that I pretty much have to plan to stay home or stay out for the duration of any concert because traffic near it will be a total clusterfuck. Every year, I make damn sure to be prepared for one concert in particular, because it comes round every year without fail and it has an insanely devoted fan base. That concert? Jimmy Buffett. This week's theme?


If you're not familiar, parrotheads are what serious Jimmy Buffett fans call themselves. And I mean serious, because Virginia has a parrothead license plate design and I see it everywhere. For more info on parrotheads, you can visit their fan portal at, just to confirm that I'm not making this shit up. Otherwise, let the games begin!

Day 68, March 20, 2010

What better way to finish out the Irish theme then with the claddagh, a traditional Irish symbol of friendship and love. Happy Saturday!

Friday, March 19, 2010

Day 67, March 19, 2010

I'm just going to finish out the holiday week with more love for the Irish. I'm not sure if this plate is a reference to the band U2, because I think they're Irish, or if it's just a shout-out from the driver to his Irish brethren. Either way, it's all kinds of Irish.

*Thanks to Michelle for providing this photo!

Day 66, March 18, 2010

Who's probably hung over this morning?

This guy.

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Day 65, March 17, 2010

Notice how this picture is a little bit blurry?

That's how everything is going to look later on today, after the St. Patrick's Day celebrations begin.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Day 64, March 16, 2010

Who's looking forward to St. Patrick's Day tomorrow?

This guy.

Day 63, March 15, 2010

Most likely, this plate belongs to a hair stylist. Either that or it belongs to Uncle Jesse from Full House.

Day 62, March 14, 2010

Today's game versus the Chicago Blackhawks was a real rollercoaster ride for Caps fans, but ultimately, the Caps prevailed to take the win in overtime. Here's to our team and our captain, The Great 8, Alex Ovechkin. We had to pull out the win without Ovi today, but as this license plate shows, he's always first in the hearts of Caps fans.

Day 61, March 13, 2010

Big Brother is watching.

Friday, March 12, 2010

Day 60, March 12, 2010

Is it just me, or does that seem both geeky and a little dirty at the same time?

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Day 59, March 11, 2010

You know that feeling when you get to that last piece of the puzzle?

So does this guy.

Day 58, March 10, 2010

It's another gorgeous day outside. It's so nice, this license plate almost applies:

Also, I need to shout out a Happy Birthday to Michelle's grandson Devon, who turned 1 yesterday. Michelle, you're by far the hottest grandma I know.

Day 57, March 9, 2010

It's been a long and arduous winter, but today, it was a delightful 70 degrees. It appears spring may be here, or at least well on the way, to which I say:

...and welcome, and please stay.

*Also, today is a very special day because it is both my best friend Kim's birthday (she's older than me, so love that!) and my dad's birthday (WAY older than me). Happy birthday!!

Day 56, March 8, 2010


...flutter by.

Day 55, March 7, 2010

It's hard to resist a Back to the Future reference.

Day 54, March 6, 2010

Hey mon!

And we hope you like jammin' too.

Friday, March 5, 2010

Day 53, March 5, 2010

Brown eyed girls may get all the attention, but us green eyes need loving too.

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Day 52, March 4, 2010

Sticking it to the man.

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Day 51, March 3, 2010

I know I just did a Caps license plate, but today is my favorite player, Alexander Semin's birthday, so I've gotta show some Caps love:

Look at that enthusiasm! I don't believe the exclamation point is an option for Virginia vanity plates, but I like it.

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Day 50, March 2, 2010

Term of endearment:

I knew a wonderful dog named Sweetpea who passed away in the fall. Here's to a fabulous dog who lived a fabulous life and will be remembered fondly.

Day 49, March 1, 2010

The Winter Olympics are over. America won a shit ton of medals and we're all very proud, but what am I really excited about? With the end of the Olympics comes the end of the NHL Olympic break, and it couldn't come soon enough, because I am suffering serious Caps withdrawal. So, I'd bet, is this guy:

Special thanks to Lauren, for not only spotting this license plate and recognizing it for the glorious example of Caps love that it is, but for also taking a picture of it from insider her car. That's love.
