I'm a Soul (wo)man

A new ride for the new "Arrest Me Red", no less.

Is it me or is it me?

I loooove it. I'd originally wanted a
  • Nissan Juke

  • But the local Nissan dealer just had no idea when they'd get one might be possibly three months.
    Really? Well, too bad for you, Nissan dealer. If ya don't have what I want when I'm ready to buy, I'll look elsewhere. And I did. The salesman also said that if we were looking for any kinda storage, the Juke's was pretty skimpy compared to most of the other small SUV-type thingys.

    I did test a
  • Cube
  • in "Carribean Blue". Liked it. Despite it's boxiness, it was zippy and agile and the seats were the most comfortable of any car my butt's been planted in. A goodly amount of storage, too.

    We also stopped by the Toyota dealer and checked out a brand-new
  • Scion
  • ...that wouldn't start. How embarrassing for the salesman. Not that I'd have chosen it, anyway after sitting in it...the interior was really cheap-looking.

    After checkin out the Soul, though...well, I was in love. Love the sunroof. Love the electric...everything. Love the storage. Love the "disco lights" in the interior. And I gotta tell ya...that Bluetooth phone thingy...I can tell my car to make a phone call...and it does!. I'm still kinda gob-smacked by that.

    'Course, I'm easily entertained. heh

    The three free months of satellite radio? Eh. S'ok.

    Anywho, I love the Soul. It's quirky and cute and it's definitely my color.

    The eagle has landed... our locust tree.

    A snowy Caturday

    I know...4 inches isn't much. Except when you're talkin about snow. I'm sooooo not ready for this.

    Da boids, however, don't seem to mind it at all. As long as we keep the grub comin, anyway.

    Meanwhile, the inside of our cozy, little cabin is snow-free. And warm...Simon thinks it's too warm. I suppose I would too if I were wearing a fluffy, fur coat 24/7.

    And Stewie? Well...Stewie is...Stewie. What can ya say?

    This is my box. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Yea, it's been one of those kinda lazy, snuggle-in days. Did a little housekeeping. Took a few photos. Was entertained by the cats. Had some yummy cheese fondue for a late lunch/early supper whilst watching King Solomon's Mine, followed by The Thin Man.
