New car

Travel: 1933 Ford
Long and complex day full of things wonderful (towards the end) and stressful (towards the beginning), but among other news: I now have a car again, after a two-year-or-so experiment in carlessness. OK, I’ve proven I can survive without a car. I am now ready to be able to make spur-of-the-moment weekend trips out of town, and run to the store for something I need without devoting an evening to it, and not have to rent a car to get kitty litter. Also I am ready to drive my wuzzle to Firefly’s for barbecue tomorrow evening. Er, today evening, I suppose, which is probably a sign that I should go to bed now.

PS — So now I need a name for it. It’s a white 2003 Saturn Ion. I haven’t really coming up with anything yet, although I’m sort of thinking about allusions to snow. My last car, a rusty 1983 Diesel Mercedes, was named Grigori Yefimovich, because he was ugly, powerful, hard to kill, and mysteriously attractive.

Yay for wheels! Being able to pick up groceries whenever you need them is SO much more convenient.

Want to show the new car how to get to Malden? :-)

"Jack Frost" is probably too commonplace of a name for you. Researching gods of snow/ice/winter might be a fun pastime, though.

Not knowing who or what Smilla is, I checked Wikipedia, where I discovered "Smilla Qaaviqaaq Jaspersen is a sympathetic and useful vehicle . . . " Hehehe.

Yay, Car! You can do without, but sometimes
'tis just ... nice. I'm feeling not at all
Saturnine about the purchase .. and will
ponder names. Isn't there something from
the literature about an ion drive?
