UP IS DOWN

So I never updated about it, but it's really relevant now, MY CAR DIED. Ker-dead. The mechanic told me that it was a miracle I never went careening off the cliff with the whole thing on fire, and proceeded to tell everyone in earshot that I had to be the best driver on the planet just to keep this motherfucker on the road. This is only a little bit of an exaggeration, given that everything was broken. The tire rods, the suspension, springs, shocks, axle, frame, all broken or about to snap.

So he told us he would never in good conscience allow us to drive it anywhere but to trade it in.

Spent the last few days trying to be a one-car household, and it sucked. And then today we went to the dealership, prepared to be told that the car was too far gone to be traded for anything, but we figured we may as well try because trying never hurts.

And the bank just called and approved my loan I HAVE A NEW* CAR

aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh feelings aahhhhhhhhhh






edit: OKAY IT IS TIME FOR CAMWHORING







my mother told me to make a nice face, and that is why this picture exists. for the record, this was my face when she told me to smile pretty:



T-REX FAIS







* it's a 2005 and it has 87,000 miles but it is new for me I have never had a car this young, my last two were so old I didn't even need the title to get them registered

I felt that way about my 99 Cavalier. I'd owned two ancient BOATS before that. (They were pretty sweet boats, but boats nonetheless) Congrats! (And can I just say that you always have the most entertaining icons... I need to resurrect my Jurassic Love screencap...

The Buick (dead car) was pretty much the boatiest boat I have ever had the pleasure to drive on land. I am still pretty giddy but I like this one a lot, even if it has bucket seats. And no cassette player? How will I play the Batmobile theme now?? And omg yes Jurassic Love, best fictional fictional movie hands down.
