techoilliterate in a cool car

Okay, I don't know where the camera is to even take a picture OR how to get it from the camera to the computer OR how to upload it to the net and stick it in a LJ post so you can't see it yet BUT

I BOUGHT A VW BEETLE!!!

It's blue, it's beautiful, it's name is VIN. (Vehicle Identivation Name). It's a diesel. Yes, it's VIN Diesel. It has a moon roof. It has a plug for an iPod. It has heated seats. It has a solar panel you can plug into your thingy so that if you aren't going to be driving it for a month (say, if i ever go overseas for vacation - ha!) it will keep the battery charged. I just ordered some green magnetic daisies for the sides. It is so much fun to drive. I'd had my other car for 10 years, it was my first ever car...this is my second. I still love my Cavalier but it really was time to get a new one. And this way sarahtoalaska got a chance to ride in it before she moved. We're giving my old car to "tickmosis so it'll still have a nice owner. Actually, we're gonna make her pay $2 for it because they bought John's Geo Metro for a dollar and my car is twice as cool as his was.

It gets WAY better milleage then John's Jeep (46 as compared to 16 miles to the gallon) so it will become our trip car. I can feel more environmetally friendly, too, especially when the biodiesel comes out. So Huzzah! New Car!!

AND

John got me an iBook for our anniversury. I got him a stuffed monster that sings Mana Mana Do Doooo Do Doo (how do you spell that?) Not exactly an even trade, but the monster is really really cute. Anyway, i'm using teh iBook to burn MP3s for the Beetle so i almost feel like i know my way around a computer. maybe i'll actually be able to get some pictures of the Bug up pretty soon.

AND

I finally got a paid livejournal account so that i could have more icons. John made me a really cute Black Books one and I've been stealing a few from people. when i get my camera skills up to speed VIN's gonna be the first icon i actually make myself. Wheeeee! I apologize in advance to everyone i start pestering about how they did this with their journal or how they did that. I saw a doctor who mood scheme i really want and don't know how to work - that'll probably be my first question of someone. you've been warned!
