Buying a car

I bought a car over the weekend for my upcoming commute to work. This sounds really serious, doesn't it-"commute to work". No more walking to the lab whenever I want. It really hasn't totally sunk in yet, but slowly it is, because of things like buying a car, taking care of insurance, parking, EZ-PASS etc. etc.

It was funny- before I went to look for a car, I acclaimed to friends that I want nothing to do with sunroof or moonroof, no need for anything powered except the steering, which is default for any car nowadays any how. Now I have to eat my words- I bought a car basically with EVERYTHING I didn't plan to pay for: moonroof, power windows, locks, mirrors, ABS... There is even an elbow rest on the driver's side. Yippee! The only thing missing is a remote starter, which can be handy when it is -10F outside I suppose.

So my new baby is a 2001 Honda Civic EX. I cannot wait for the new freedom, but there is also the responsibility=P.

Sweet. The car sounds great. You can drive us around when we are in town. Great news, congrats. Now for the condo...

Heh heh. If you trust my navigation skill =). I almost forgot how scary it is driving in an unfamiliar part of Boston when it is dark. At least I made it back fine from the Alewife T station alright.
