Vroom Vroom Leak
In an amazing turn of Open Comment Night events, as soon as we started our cars they started leaking — even our new friends from askpatty couldn’t help. It seeems their vehicles were leaking the most links all night! It’s as if the cars WERE the link leak virus.
The Link Leak Virus was to be part of the whole operation, whether we were Mother Teresa, Mark Cuban, Lucille Ball, or Donald Trump.The Link Leak Virus is a special strain of the indie virus with blogtipping mutations that occur in threes.Things quieted down as our engines warmed up.
We still told some wonderful car stories.
Cat woke to Tanks and a coup. She’s in our thoughts.
HART says never ask a police officer fo an ID.

Vrooom, Vroom Summary by Rick Cockrum
What Rick writes makes us all sound so interesting. I think we should do this again!
Liz our hostess once again,
Open mic once more begins.
Tonight itÃ¢â¬â¢s cars and highway travel,
Women and garages, the pain unravels
Breanne is first, she made our day,
Working with women and the web sheÃ¢â¬â¢s not shy
With dogs and cars she loves to play.
Douglas stopped in for a glance.
Of American cars he is derisive,
European luxury is his vision.
Susan came for a while,
Click and Clack make her smile.
Jody popped in with statistics galore
Of cars and women she can tell us more.
Kirsten has good luck car shopping,
But mechanics can really get her anger hopping.
CatÃ¢â¬â¢s in the middle of a Thai coup,
No TV, no phone, with tanks all around,
Communication through the net is still sound.
Katiebird tells us of her great scare.
A truck has attacked her
With never a care.
HART has stories that are really quite grand.
We canÃ¢â¬â¢t help but say
HART, YouÃ¢â¬â¢re the MAN!
Scorpia rides a taxi and walks a fair bit,
But storms are around her,
She returns to her cave to prevent getting hit.
Joe makes us jolly with his verse wit
The women console him,
They say they wonÃ¢â¬â¢t nip.
And Candice is the sys-op, Ferraris her bag
Stuck in an Accord
Made her quite sad.
Seanrox loves his Mustang, heÃ¢â¬â¢s built for speed,
Laptop in one hand, pizza the other,
He rides through the land,
Ben drives up in an old Mazda.
He says his car sucks,
So The Great Big Small Business Show was noted.
Trisha watched House before she came.
She couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t stay long
Due to rather bad neck pain.
RenÃÂ©e sold her car and wanted advice
On what car she should get for the tall and the short,
Abby wrote in and called for divorce.
Meikah sang a song about strong inner pain,
Fast cars and freedom, our childhood dream.
That leads to life that our parentÃ¢â¬â¢s life sang.
StarbuckerÃ¢â¬â¢s hearing the trainÃ¢â¬â¢s lonesome wail,
Life has been good, heÃ¢â¬â¢s seen his family and then
Phil, his main man.
Tony picked our collective minds,
About a problem with driving as our ages do climb
We had little to say, the law doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t help,
We just cross our fingers, and in time cross that line.
BeckyÃ¢â¬â¢s car broke down,But she still brought the drinks.
Happily married sheÃ¢â¬â¢s in a small town.
Her spouse the mechanic, she cures computer hijinks.
Christine made it in at the end of the night,
But her wifi wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t last,
She had to take flight.
And Easton had Arny, a little Geo
With tires like cookies,
The car finally had to go.
AdLib slept in for once I should say
But day or night,
He canÃ¢â¬â¢t stay away.
And Alvin, though clueless
With cars as it seems,
Has a brother who sees them fulfilling his dreams.
And finally we end , sixteen hours in,
Hendry Lee with a Wow! You talk like the wind!
Rick, you are the special one. Thank you so much for doing this again! thanks to everyone who participated!
