EURO TRASH........errr Ameritrash?


Remember Eurotrash - a photo menagerie? It was my weekly occasional posting of random photos that did not fit for other postings. Well......its back again. I suppose the term 'EuroTrash' is no longer appropriate since I'm not longer living in Europe. So what should it be called? AmeriTrash.....Pot Pourri? Any suggestions on the new name???

Ok, lets get started. Here is this week's MESS:


I couldn't resist taking this photo. While driving home from Seattle this week, I saw this car (complete with a plastic bag/duct taped window) daringly trying to carry a mattress home. The top was flapping all over, and any minute I expected it to be on my windshield. This would be so illegal in Germany.


At my military Christmas party, we have several State Troopers with our group. For FUN, we go through DUI (drunk driving - for my international friends) tests. It is VERY INTIMIDATING. Even though he has an 'Ugly Sweater' and a Santa hat on - don't be deceived. His voice and mannerisms were ALL BUSINESS. You never want to be pulled over for alcohol reasons, and watching this test in person was SCARY. I couldn't imagine if he had an actual uniform on and state trooper hat. Eeek!


Ugly Sweaters!!! No I didn't win....apparently only men can actually pull off the look since it's more believable. See the guy in the vest? That's Gary, he's one of my dearest friends. I served in Iraq with all 3 of these great guys - major respect for all of them.


So remember all of my hoop-la over MANPRIS? I can't help but think we were better off with MANPRIS over these hideous denim shorts. Yes - these are for MEN and I spotted them last week at my beloved H&M. Which...for the record - the American H&M sucks is no where near the coolness of European H&M. Could you imagine your guy busting out these shorts for your next event? The horror.

There is a gadget for everything, and Pier 1 is now offering stockings for your chair legs. This was at my sisters house, and because of how her chair legs were designed, the stockings looked pigeon toed. Who thinks of this stuff?

That's it for now!

Oh my Lord - Manpris, that's horrible!!
Haha, we saw a van "trying" to drive home with a rolled up carpet on the roof... held down by -- oh -- all of one bungee-rope! :)

I like Pot Pourri :) it's different. Or Euro-Trash US Edition... but then that's a bit too long for a title I think. ;)
