New Car

By request, here is a picture of my new car.

Other reasons to love my new car:

  • The keyless entry system.

    It took me a few days to stop walking up to the door and using the key, but I finally got the hang of it. I can even pop the trunk from a few feet away! Okay, so it's not new technology, but this is still the first car that I've ever owned with this cool capability.


  • The computer security hooks.

    Sorry, did I lose you there?

    The manual refers to them as "Car seat security tethers", but c'mon, an infant car seat in my car? I think not. However, my Kensington lock fits perfectly, so the laptop stays in its case on the back seat, I drape a coat over the lock, and I can go to Curves or into the supermarket and not be jittery about leaving the computer in the car. Can't do it on a hot day, even with the wonderful tinted windows, but it's still a great option.


  • The tinted windows.

    I know I've mentioned them already, but in addition to keeping the interior cool, they also make it more difficult to see inside the car, and therefore to see stuff on the backseat inside the car, so I think they deserve to be mentioned again.


I'm a little disappointed with her gas mileage, as it is actually 3-4 miles per gallon less than the old one, but even with today's gas prices, that's a small price to pay for all the goodness. Yes, I'm really loving my new car....

You should really see someone about these delusions you're having....

Preferably, someone with professional psychiatric training...
