a smart car (unknown men on the picture)
Smaudi A3 AWD
and finally - the Smustang!
Before I decided to buy one I drove a few. None of the above were available in the Yukon so I limited my options to Toyota Corolla, Mazda 2 and Chrysler 200. I liked Corolla a lot and I really liked the 200, couldn't decided between these two. Corolla has an excellent consumer report ratings as the most reliable vehicle but 200 is an awesome looking car... Well, couple days ago again I took the little Toyota for a ride - this time wasn't just a test drive but actually I drove the way I would drive my own car. And I decided that Corolla it is! Yesterday I took a day off work, grabbed Freddy with me and we went to a dealership, did the paperwork, got sold on a few extras and went to insure the vehicle and get new plates. In the mean time we celebrate our new purchase in Japanese style - lunch at Tokyo Sushi, our local Japanese restaurant. By 5 PM I was driving on Alaska Highway in my new babe. Here she is:
She came with a lovely panda (well, to tell you the truth - I asked for it):
Next week we are going back to the dealership and the car will have a little makeover (added bodyside mouldings, rear bridge spoiler and a rear bumper protector)
By the end of the day Freddy and I were exhausted, just flopped on the couch and watch three shows in the row, the CSI New York, Nikita and Fringe.
HALLOWEEN MUST BE NEAR!
I noticed lately that a lot of ravens are gathering around...
WHAT I'VE LEARNED THIS WEEK?
The glue on the postal stamps doesn't hold very well to the fabric! I sent mail art to my stitching buddy and the poor thing, after being stuck somewhere for almost six weeks, came back to me with a note of not sufficient postage. I am so embarrassed, now I know to use super glue!
This weekend is a Thanksgiving in Canada. Tomorrow I'm having a few guests for a turkey dinner. It looks like I'll be busy cooking!
