GZUZFRK is a pretty clever license plate. (Jesus Freak. I spare you having to ask, if you needed to.)
I have "Our God is an Awesome God" going through my head. I'm imagining God clapping along lightly with his fingertips and a sarcastic expression on his face as I hum it. "ORLY?," he says. I reply by humming with increased cheerful vigor "He REIGNS from heaven aBOVE!" It's CATCHY.

I would maybe like to meet some of you at a blogger conference some day without wearing a refrigerator box that hides my entire body. Here is a photo of me full-length, at an angle I feel is flattering (baby steps) to my Hip Width as well as to my Rear Awning:
