Ooh, shiny! Zippy! Sparky!

I'm still in the process of getting situated here, so I haven't had much time to blog. And then we had the Harry Potter madness, which I'm still recovering from. (I'm trying to figure out how to do a review without giving any many spoilers.) But Twin and I did manage to buy a car! We both sold our cars back when we moved to NYC, so since the move we've been driving my dad's VW bus, which is great for camping but also has several little quirks. Like stalling whenever it idles, making town driving really . . . fun.


It's a Honda Fit. Isn't it cute? We think her name will be Sparky. We'll see if it sticks anyway. :)

That is button cute! and I think Sparky works but then you need to drive it for a while to see if it's up to it's name. 'Piece of shit' is the name of most my cars ;)

My car is called the Figgymobile. Why? Does it look like a fig? Same color? No. My mom called it so when she saw my license plate (not a vanity tag, just letters and numbers randomly assigned by the MVA) and the name stuck. Sparky sounds much cooler :)

Oh, how cute! We had a little dog named Sparky at one time and he was cute as a button too. I love blue. I have wanted a blue car forever but hubby no like so ... no blue car.

Oh love Sparky! Or Sparkly would have been just as cute. Then you'd have an excuse for glitter. What? You've never seen glitter on a car before???? :-P

I know about HP reviews. It's impossible to write one without giving anything away. So, I'm just waiting till the rest of the world catches up. LOL.

Oh she is purty! I only named one car. It was oh so many years ago and it was my dad's Valiant. I named it Norman. I loved that car because it would never start for him, but for me, Norman purred like a kitten.
