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)

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
