Don't Get Me Down (Come On Over Here)

The Run to Work era is over. We bought a new vehicle over the weekend. Actually, we officially buy it tomorrow, but on Saturday we test-drove and got a great deal on a Kia Sedona minivan. We finish up the paperwork and pick it up tomorrow. I was all set to run to work today, but the wind was blowing the rain sideways, so I opted for a ride from Deb instead. I would have been completely drenched by about 10 minutes into the 70-minute run. I'm not THAT crazy.

This will be the first new car I've bought since 1992, when I got my Hyundai Elantra. I had that car for eight years, until its untimely demise after a 500-pound tree branch fell on it and totalled it. Yeah, I haven't had good luck with cars in this millennium.

Congrats, dizzog. Time to start picking out the right bumper stickers. If only I had a spare copy of the classic KF sticker "Take Your Stand Against The Man."

Thanks. Although I'm now convinced that putting a bumper sticker on a car I drive is the kiss of death for that vehicle. Every time I do it, shortly afterward the friggin' thing dies. Ratfarts!
