Jet Girl (1999-2005)


Our paint job
Originally uploaded by realsupergirl.

Tomorrow, she’s going to be taken away by WGBH and be dismembered. Tonight, we had an informal eulogy for her.

Where she got her name: When I first got her, described her as “jet blue”, which reminded me of Jet Girl, AKA Tank Girl’s sidekick.

Where I purchased her: Hillsboro, Oregon

States/provinces she’s traveled through: Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Nebraska, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Maine, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Jersey, Connecticut, Quebec, Nova Scotia

Most memorable experience: Sleeping in her in the Denny’s parking lot in Dunkirk, NY because there were no motels with rooms available for 500 miles around.

Her scars: Rust on her driver’s side door, hence the paint job. Banged in passenger side door, from where bumped a pole trying to back out of a parking space in Porter Square parking garage. Numerous nicks and dents in the bumper, from parallel parking in Cambridge.

Bumper stickers: Just one: “God Bless the Freaks.” Amen to that.

  1. Actually, I said that the shade of blue was “gun metal blue.”

    I think it bears noting that several of the states travelled, she was not in fact driven, but towed.
