So yesterday afternoon, I hooked up with jezel, and she drove us to the dealership to pick up my new car.

We checked it over for scratches and dings, checked all the buttons, dials and knobs, all the lights, indicators, gauges, gadgets and frobs. I signed off on the work done, and noticed with some embarrasment that the "Appearance Package I" that it came with include "pimpmobile tires", bright flashy chrome hubcap covers. I'll deal.

After I signed for it, I volunteered: "Um, don't you guys want the check?"

"Oh. Oh, yeah!"

Heh. I wonder how long it would have taken for them to notice?


We joyrode it down I405S, across the 520 bridge, to University Place, and then back again to my place, and then watched Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: Andrew L on the ReplayTV.


Anyway, it's Very Nice. I've never had a remote locking button before. I've never had power windows before. I've never had a New Car before.

Pictures will be posted as soon as the wankers at servers-r-us.com bring my colo box back online.

I gave the dealership every check they asked for, drove home with the salesman following me, handed him the title for the trade in and went out for pizza. When I got back home, there was a frantic message wondering where the down payment check was.

Still in the checkbook. Half-hour to closing.

Vrooom.
