What does Kitty have to say?


 


So I guess I need a new car

You may have heard Jonathan telling me that I need an automotive intervention. Yes, my car is kinda old. And it has what I'd like to call "quirks." Yes, I can't open the passenger door from the outside. The defrost only works on half the rear window, and the rear windshield wiper no longer wipes.  The radio doesn't light up at night (it used to light up all the time, even when the car was off, which was strange). And the passenger seat is rusted in place. Oh yeah..sometimes the driver's side door doesn't open so I have to crawl in through the back. I'm sure some surveillance camera somewhere has footage of that, and it's hilarious! Maybe it is time to upgrade. The last car I bought was when Bill Clinton was still president. Okay...I guess it's time to start looking! Jonathan suggests Zimbrick Eastside, so I'm going to go check them out. I've already started to think about what features I'd like. Definitely automatic.. with air conditioning, a nice stereo, and cup holders that are big enough to hold a large soda from a convenience store. Jonathan's cars have seat warmers..so that would be awesome on cold winter mornings when I drive to work. And I'm pretty sure I'd like a vehicle with doors that open..from the inside, and outside.

Kitty, As you are a woman of a certain age, consider seats with the cooling option. Terry

Hey Kitty, just make sure you get a four wheel vehicle. You live in Wisconsin and everyone should have four wheel drive. Cuts right through the snow banks and you guys got a ton of snow this year. Get a nice blue car, that is my favorite color besidespink but a pink car would be just plain weird. DBD

Kitty, I'm right there with you...still driving my own quirky car, a '96 Ford Taurus wagon with 192,061 miles on it. Traded my Honda civic in for it back in the Clinton era so I'd have more space for hauling my daughter's stuff back and forth from college at the UW. She's since graduated and moved on but the clunker still keeps chugging along. From what I can tell listening to you and Jonothan on my morning commutes, we agree on just about everything. So I'm gonna let you do the car shopping and pick whatever you decide to go with. (hint: a hybred would be a good choice)

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
