Demonic shopping carts and Electric Six  
So yeah...

Funny thing happened to me today while at the supermarket.

So I leave the market with one bag and I get to where my car is parked and there's this shopping cart on its side (not mine, since I have the one bag) in the space next to me. No doubt from all the high winds out today. I see a car wanting to park in that space, so I bend over and right the cart and put it up on the embankment there. The woman thanks me over and over again and tells me how sweet that was.

Seriously, no one else would do something like that? Really, what have we become? So I go to get into my car when I see the cart driving itself down the embankment and then over the curb and coming towards me.


It then passes me totally by (the nerve! And after the time we shared! :P

I follow after it - oh who are we kidding? I chase after the stupid thing before it can crash into someone else's car and return it to one of those cart corrals.

But it didn't want to stay there and started drifting off again.

Yeah, you got it. I went back for it (I felt some kind of attachment to it by this time) and ran it all the way into the damn supermarket.

I watched as the automatic doors closed behind it.

After that I got back into my car and went about my day, safe in the knowledge I had successfully rounded up the demonic cart.

Now here's where it gets really scary...

I drive up my drive and there's the damn shopping cart!

And it's smiling at me, the fucker!

Okay, so that last part isn't true (about the smiling and the cart being at my house), but it would have been a cool ending to a creepy story about shopping carts and those who might possess them. :P

And with that, I leave you with a vid of my favorite group, Electric Six.

Seriously, if you haven't heard of these guys, you need to check them out.

I love Electric Six LOL and you're right, creepy cart following you home would have been a perfect ending, but hey, creepy carts in general are pretty spaz ;)

I agree. I mean, it was pretty creepy the way it kept following me around the parking lot. LOL!

I'm not quite sure which song of Electric Six is my fav because I like so much of their work and Nick Valentine is the BEST!

That would have been totally freaky if the cart had followed you home. lol

Never heard of Electric Six, but I loved the song. The video was... both amusing and disturbing at the same time. lol

Nick Valentine, the main guy in the group, thinks outside the box ALL THE FRIGGIN TIME. He is possibly the coolest man in existence.

I'll post some more vids this week and yes, it would have been freaky if the cart were waiting for me at home. :P

Was the cart wearing overalls? White ones? Do you think the demon-cart was trying to tell you something? Something about an unfinished fic? Muahahahahaha.
Maria: Justin's Babyslave_o_spike on January 8th, 2010 10:07 pm (UTC)
Nope. No overalls, white or otherwise. LOL!

The cart may not be trying to tell me something (except one good deed has you chasing a ruddy cart around a parking lot like a fool) but you may be. :P

Yes, I will be getting back to Justin's Baby. And LOVE the icon. :)

Now, did you have strange dreams about carts following you home?

I'm so Evol. :)

THAT is one crazy-ass video. Funny and strange. It was like watching zombies, in a way. Made the song much better. And yes, I liked it. Totally fascinating. Rather like your stories. *Hugs*

*hugs you tightly*

*puts you down when notices you are turning a strange shade of blue*

Yeah, Electric Six is sort of like my stories. Must be why I love them so much.
Maybe it's cause of my WICKED  ways...: Are you on  crack? Brianrapunzel50 on January 8th, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)

I love how the evil cart can let your imagination go wild -- thus the end of your story. LOL

It really doesn't take much.

We could be talking about firehead's shoes for instance and I could think of a million plot lines. :P

Not that that is a good thing...

Now how did that blasted cart get all the way to France?!?!

And how come it got a passport faster than I ever did? Now that's scary. *shivers*

I love Electric Six vids (and their music). Dick V is so ahead of his time.

oh my goodgollygosh thats funny stuff! i think the cart was just looking for attention.. you know how they can be :)
AH! I love that song! It used to play on this Indie / Alternative radio station 100.5 The Buzz in Gainsville, FL until they switched to mainstream music 3 or 4 years ago because the ratings were a little low.. then everyone that WAS at the radio station quit cause they dont like mainstream.. i dont blame them.. i stopped listening to it too.. but AHH! that song is so awsome!
Maria: Golem and Spongebobslave_o_spike on January 18th, 2010 01:02 am (UTC)
Then the cart is like my teenaged daughters. LOL!

I love Electric Six. Their music is amazing and I almost had a chance to see them at a nightclub here in Seattle but it was on a Sunday night and too much was going on.

BTW, how did you find my lj? Just curious. I always like asking new people that.
Alexandriaburtona94 on January 18th, 2010 01:14 am (UTC)
