In yesterday's post, I mentioned that I was preoccupied with errands this week... well, most of that time was occupied with one major errand, buying an automobile. It was time, my 2002 vintage car was getting a little tired, so I donated it to the American Diabetes Association. I was finally able to buy a small, economical 5-speed manual transmission 2013 Honda with an absurdly low odometer reading:
When I drove the car out of the dealership, it had 308 miles on it. Yeah, you read that right. The car handles nicely, I like the way it handles- the gear shift feels nice, and while not a fast car, it's a smooth ride. I've never been a leadfood at any rate. The car is small, but roomy, it' comfortable... all round, it's a sensible little ride, a perfect commuter car. I haven't named it yet, but I'm thinking of calling it Tamago-chan, or G-4 (yeah, still binge watching Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, currently at episode 69) because of the egg-like shape of the car.
Enough of my gushing over a bit of metal, glass, and plastic... how about a comical number from the Buzzcocks that's appropriate to the subject of this post?
