hey, look what i just got


the lease on my trusty corolla is up, so i got one of those big 'ol crazy boxy scion xB's! i'll have it in a few days. the color is shadow mica (of course they can't call it what it really is--dark grey), and i got the upgraded sound system w/ ipod capability. it's got tinted windows and lots of room. this is by far the most ginormous vehicle i've ever had (on the inside, anyway). oh, and of course they threw in some floormats, too. wheeee! i tell ya, man...new house, new car...things are comin' up mondo!

(and it's about flippin' time.)

i am so excited for this house! i imagine gertie in the window, too...on the bottom of the tall window next to the door. i can just see her sitting there, watching the cars go by...

you should get one! you would not believe how roomy they are on the inside. plus, the controls for the stereo are on the steering wheel, which is totally cool. and you can pick your sound system and the wheel covers you want. it's supposedly geared towards "young people." and they all have tinted windows, which i've never had before. so i can do all my illegal business in my car now and no one can see me. ha.

i dunno, it looks kind of like a european paddy wagon!! love it!!!
