I Am Now Officially The Prankateer General

“I’d really like to make a name for myself… what do you think of the Prankateer General?”

“…Sounds like a pretty good idea.”

The message: be proactive

Be sure to listen through to the end on this. It drags a bit in the middle, but it gets fun again when the kids start eating the dog food.

Ode To My Kia Sedona

Maybe someday I’ll put this to music, but for now, here’s my latest poetic composition…

Ode to My Kia Sedona
by Chas Hathaway

Sitting,
Reflecting,
I can’t help but thinking
The one I have now’s not sufficient
Pragmatic,
My old pick,
But not too aesthetic
I’d long since gave up as deficient

The first time I saw you
I knew you’d be mine
You wanted me too
After six months garaging full-time

Reflecting bright
the mid-day light
The hue of the sun’s full corona
A brilliant white
I venture to write
This ode to my Kia Sedona

Your battery,
No flattery,
Made sounds that were clattery
The price to get fixed made me cower
At great cost,
Your defrost,
When came calling Jack Frost
A short wired fuse drained your power

So to the mechanic
I drove you that day
The price made me panic
As I walked irately away

Reflecting bright
the mid-day light
The hue of the sun’s full corona
A brilliant white
I venture to write
This ode to my Kia Sedona

Revamping,
Now camping,
After wilderness stamping
We notice you had a flat tire
Replace it,
Now race it,
A new flat displaced it
Halfway home – I think cars conspire

Back to the shop
Once again you won’t start
Alternator’s a flop
‘Till we save up the cost for the part

In case you’re ideal’s
on a new set of wheels
Before your trip through Arizona
Consider my plight
Get the car that’s right
Just don’t get a Kia Sedona

Celebrity Lookalike II: A Celebritory Family

I stand corrected on my post, Celebrity (???) Look-a-like.  After posting it, my sister, Shelly Hathaway, commented on Facebook, explaining that I got it all wrong.  Well, I like her correction – since I’m not a big fan of Warren Jeffs.  She then proceeded to tell me who I really was, along with who all the kids in my family are.  I Googled the celebrities she said, and she’s spot-on!  Holy cow!  I guess I’m just from a celebrity family!  Here’s the celebrity list for me and my siblings:

Lookalikes

Shane: David Dochovny (X-Files)

Ria: Amy Lee (Evanescence)

Me: Jimmy Stewart (Yes!  That guy rocks!  Good ol’ George Bailey – and Mr. Smith)

Shelly: Avril Lavigne

Jake: Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)

So who do you and you’re family members look like?  Is your family as celebritous as mine?
