Kid Sister: Blogger?

“OK… (take a breath) Everyone who is poor and who doesn’t have a DUI on their record best ta LISTEN UP! Every last one of y’all should know about and participate IN car sharing! It’s the best thing that’s ever happened ever in life. Instead of lugging all your heavy laundry around town through snow drifts in sub zero weather in a 90 year old babushka lady cart you can now DRIVE it to the laundromat in record time and have time left over to shop or eat or drive to your man’s house across town! No more bus stops! No more frostbite! No more devonte!!! YAY!”

Check Chicago’s sweetheart bigging up car sharing over on the MuchMusic Blog. More Canadian KS action from her recent shows in these photos and this EYE Weekly interview. The JOTS dudes promise some video from the shows soon…
