Reminds me of this one:
It's basically a mascot of the Louvre and they sell copies to tourists. I thought it was unique (and still cherish mine because it is really cute and it took me ages to find the original in that huge museum) until I recently found out there are several big museums sporting very, very similar hippo figurines and all treating them as something very special and dear to their heart.
There's something about those Egyption hippos ...
If you google "egyptian hippo statue" you'll find masses of different but similar figures, they must have been quite popular (remind me to ask a friend about this who has done a few semesters of egyptology!). Many of them really gorgeous but your amethyst one sticks out due to the material.

(Washing cars with soap is already illegal in the first place, so few people wash their cars at home anyway.)
And yeah, lawns are evil. :P
The social pressure on homeowners to maintain immaculate grass lawns is ridiculous. There are many places where "turf" grasses (e.g. Kentucky bluegrass) don't grow well without using an inordinate amount of irrigation water. Native shrubs and grasses use much, much less water (e.g. fescue grasses, here).
According to the article 70% of household water use in California goes toward landscaping. That's just nuts. Take away the use on landscaping and household water use drops down to around the level we're at.

HA HA HA! I've done it once again!! I beat my ISTJ friends at monopoly! And now they hate me and say they're never gonna play it with me again.
They're so upset about it though. They keep saying "I thought you were going to be out for sure!! Why does this ALWAYS happen?! Every single fxcking time! You only had 3 goddamn properties, you had one hotel and EVERYONE KEPT LANDING ON IT!"
They were so mad, they kept giving me my change in 5s and 1s because they know I hate those. It probably doesn't help that I am totally not modest at all when I'm kicking ass at monopoly
And I plan on doing it all again tomorrow.

This is apparently almost 10 years old. I've always commiserated with leeroy. I probably would have done the same thing. I remember when I played runescape, I use to spend a lot of time prophesying that the world was doomed to be crushed by a giant cow. A new world would form from the raw beef, using a prayer from the bones. Good times.

That video is classic. I was just quoting it yesterday -- my roommate was barreling through a video game level, totally certain he was going to die.
