I opted to bag my old vanity plate for a new one, and much to my surprise, EOS was available.
I originally thought I’d use EOSREDUX as the plate, and that was available too, but since all of you call me EOS, it seemed perfect for that to be my plate moniker too.
There are a few glitches….
>My car is in Montauk for the next several days, being used by one of the kids whose own car is in the shop, so I can’t even put the new plates ON.
>I haven’t figured out how to explain this plate to my mother and sister, both of whom think I stopped blogging long ago. This could be the largest hurdle.
>I JUST paid $243 in April to renew my old plates and I don’t know yet if that payment is transferable to the new ones – if the payment is car specific or plate specific. I called the NYDMV to ask that very question and I got Joe Jerk, whose snarky attitude was too much to bear. I basically hung up on him.
>I hate hate hate the colors of the new plates – they are nothing like the vintage New York colors, try as they might to replicate that. My current plate is white background. Much prettier.
Otherwise, I’m happy with my choice. It’ll be interesting to see if anyone connects the dots – from my plate to me the blogger. If not, they can assume, perhaps more correctly, that I am The Goddess of the Dawn.
Here I am this morning, watering the flowers in my garden. 🙂
So, if you see this plate while you are out and above, honk or wave…. if you wave, kindly wave with your whole hand, not just one finger! Thanks in advance.
