Green goddess...

Car [WARNING: If you get grossed out easily, you might want to pass on this one]

This is good, I guess, if not really disgusting. So, ever since I started my new job, I rarely drive my car. It just sits on the street day after day. Mostly, I ride one of my bikes or take the scooter if I’m crossing town or buying groceries. If it’s raining, I leave the house early and walk.

This past weekend, I had to drive to the MORE event and discovered that my car had turned into a wetland reserve. There’s a leak in the convertible top and rain got in and combined with some tree pod things that blew in the last time I drove. My interior was literally sprouting. I didn’t need a weed wacker or anything, but it smelled a little earthy in there. Gross. It’s clean now and Lysol'd like no one's business.

But, at least its evidence that my go-by-two-wheels lifestyle is having a green effect!!

P.S. sorry about the re-use photo. I should have taken one at the time


A few weeks ago I bought a rain gauge for my garden. Two days later I found something much more effective - I was able to measure precisely 3/4" in the cup holder in my car . . . . unfortunately I had left the sun roof open all night and picked the wrong night to do so! Combined with all the mulch I had been transporting back and forth, "earthy" is a kind word for the aroma in my car . . .

Oh no! Well at least it wasn't manure you had been hauling. I'm not sure there's enough Lysol in the world to kill that smell. :)
