My 2012 Year-in-Review

Another year has come and gone. Though many years can dissolve together, some years are distinctive. The year of the wedding (2008). The year of the pregnancy (2011) and this, the first full year of parenthood. 2012 took us from … Continue reading

My Best of 2012

This is the time of year I’d normally be compiling my top ten list for the year in movies  But I haven’t seen ten movies I liked this year, I probably haven’t even seen ten movies. Movies and I aren’t on … Continue reading

My First New Car

Yes finally, after all these years, it is with great personal emotional payoff, that I announce I bought a new car. The thought process went something like this: My husband, whose WGC is a 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi, has been wanting a cheap commuter car that gets good gas mileage to save us money and to save his beloved some miles. I have been eyeing the 2012 Subaru Imprezas for their nice new look, good gas mileage and all-wheel drive. Wouldn’t it be nice, we thought, if he could drive the Corolla, and I could buy that car?

Not My Car…Yet

There was only one question left, and that was whether I would actually like the car. It was a question for the ages, or at least until this past weekend when my husband brought home a new Impreza as a loaner vehicle while his was in the shop. The moment of truth was upon me. Continue reading

My First Car Story

A few months ago, Toyota was running an ad campaign that featured families that passed down their Toyota through the generations. First the parents drove it, then big sister, then little brother and it’s still going strong. I loved those commercials. … Continue reading

Another WGC Milestone

Another “World’s Greatest Car” Milestone… Over the weekend, the world’s best car hit 150,000 miles. Lately we’ve taken to calling the car the “Raspberry,” an homage to the blue Toyota Echo on Psych named the “Blueberry,” but the car’s given name … Continue reading

99

99 minutes. That’s what the sign said. At this point, I’d already been in the car for 20, maybe 30 minutes, but according to the sign, it would be another 99 minutes to my destination. My destination was work, where I go every single day. I wish I could call the sign a big, fat liar, but I can’t. It was being honest with me. Continue reading

Gender Bender

People also pick on my car (you know, the world’s best car) which is fine because I choose to drive that car and I like it, but two other people there – men – drive Corollas and no one ever makes fun of them. I’m just saying.

Wally World Adventure

While I’m still a few days away from my Disney vacation, Shaun and I did decide to venture out to the Wal-Mart on Thursday afternoon. What a mistake! Nobody but nobody knows how to drive in snow around here, and … Continue reading

World’s Best Car gets the hiccups

Well if you’ve noticed the abundant posts today it’s because I’m sitting at home, stranded, the ’98 Corolla with 115,000 miles unwilling to start. The first blog post was homework. I’d been working on a lengthier, more profound post when … Continue reading
