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: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a little...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Free downloads: The Bayonets
If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"

It's not *that* kind of pool party! ~ Stevi
