I've had some car troubles recently. Actually, they aren't so recent: about three or so years ago, the City of New York had the audacity to ticket me for a plethora of reasons. Parking, standing, inspection---I just couldn't make them happy! Since moving to the 'burbs, I've managed to avoid any further indiscretions, but the city wouldn't just take a wash on ancient history. Oh no, the CoNY had to threaten me with the inability to renew my registration. They had to play hardball by suspending my license! The brutality.
Anyhow, I have since paid off my debt to society (to the tune of around $800), and am now just trying to clear my name. The DMV has been pawning me off on every other agency in town until today, when I made it to the New York City Finance Offices on John Street. And guess what? It was a pretty awesome experience. My number was called one second after I sat down, the woman was super nice, and the whole thing took less than seven minutes. Way to go finance dept.!
Here are some pieces from Etsy, the overwhelming, maze-like website which reminds me a lot of the DMV and also happens the best place to buy from truly independent artists...

EDITED TO ADD:
Keen eyed Molly of Ashcan Rantings was so OTM about my cat. Molly said, "haha your cat = posh spice in the marc jacobs ads. actually your cat > lady becks in the MJ ads" and Blue Floppy Hat of Nonsense on Stilettos concurred. Ladies, on behalf of Fatso Fatterson (er, the cat), thank you!
