sweet ride!

okay. so everything worked out. and i am now the owner of a ford explorer sport. she's so pretty. she's a 2000, black, 2 door, v6, 4.0...and she's great. i love her!!!! pictures will come soon. i promise. as soon as i picked it up after work (i did get to leave early!) i brought it straight home and washed it. she looked so pretty shining in all her glory as her paint sparkled. she smiled at me...and i, like a mother holding her daughter for the first time, beamed.

okay...so seriously i was like an antsy school girl all day. i could focus, couldn't pay attention...all i could think about was getting a new vehicle. i'm so excited...and i'm hoping this feeling doesn't rub off for a while.

on another note...she needs a name. i've never named a car before. she needs something good and strong...but great. i'm open for suggestions.

robyn - wishing i had a new ride or that my baby's black eye would go away... said...

i don't know why i thought this... but

betty...

it's a fun and american name... after all, she is a ford... and betty is a sweet, nice name... it may not be "strong" enough... but you don't want an amazon-woman type name like xena...

i'll help be on the search committee for the name o' the new ride, if you want me to be...

no. betty is not a good name. it makes me think of this psycho woman i used to work with. she was seriously nuts. i refuse to name my car anything with bad connotation.

i didn't know about the pyscho lady... my bad... i'll try to keep thinking of one... i'll let you know if i come up with anything...

amy said...

uh, jeremy, do i even have to answer that? seriously...talking about names having bad connotations. it's bad enough you call me that. we won't bring that upon anyone else. unless i decide to name her "gita" or "vishnu" which i think i'll also pass on those. :)

if she's a girl what about
sweet caroline....then she'd have her own song....

How about Sam (short for Sam)? Because Sam was cool in Garden State, and I think your Explorer is cool too. Way to go!

emily said...

any updates on the nameing process?

amy said...

hmm...nothing yet. i haven't really thought about it a whole lot to be honest. it's gotta be something that just fits. :)
