Now Presenting... The MILF Mobile!!!!

Unfortunately, my car is totaled. Our state just passed some new law that says that if the car is more damaged than 75% of its worth, which my 100k+ mi 2000 minivan was, it's a loss. Crap. They actually took into account the broken a/c and heater, which was busted before this, unless it's even MORE busted now, which is possible, I suppose. Anyway, even with all used parts, it was going to be $4500 to fix it, and it was only worth about $5k to start with.

So, I'm getting about $3k towards a new car. Well, new to me, anyway, since it will have been previously new to someone else! Oh, well. I don't mind having a used car, and if the a/c and heat work right, it'll be a better car than the one I just lost! Also, it will not be a minivan. I've had one of those for nine years, and since I no longer have a stroller or any of the larger baby crap, and most of the time I'm driving I'm by myself, there's no need for me to be using so much gas and have such bad mileage. I'm looking forward to driving something smaller than Rhode Island!

I have to send in my title to the insurance company, and they'll send me a check, which should take about a week total. In the meantime, look at the total MILF Mobile I get to drive, thanks to Geico!

It's a Pontiac G5, which I think means something like that the hamsters under the hood run 5x as fast as my old car! Plus, the radio keeps playing even after I shut off the car! After the minivan, it's like driving freakin' KITT!!!!!!! Woohoo!!!! The a/c works and everything!!!! Plus also, I'll bet the front left tire won't lose air all the time, either! AND, I'm betting that the windshield wipers don't randomly go off, either. Dude, I am STYLIN'.

At least, for the next week.
