At one point, we had a Le Car. It looked like this.
I really wanted a Prius. Mostly for the gas mileage and the hybrid and the bragging rights, but also because when I drove it, I liked it. Not everyone in the family did, though, and since I refused to buy a car only one of us would drive, we went with the Ford Escape Hybrid […]
Everyone tells me ‘Go out for a drive’ and my thought is ‘To where?’ Maybe it’s a factor of the green/eco-friendly/save-the-damn-earth/communist/socialist agenda of which I partake. Maybe it’s because I’m new at this. But I don’t get the whole concept of going nowhere. Now, I do go for bike rides and hikes, and people might […]
Yeah, that’s it. That’s the one. It’s … mine. What is it? It’s a 2008 used Ford Escape Hybrid, with 7918 miles on it, fully loaded, AWD, roof rack and all for less than the cost of a new base model hybrid. Excuse me, I need a paper bag to go breath into a few […]

Here’s my problem. I fell in love with a car. Right now, my friends, family and those who’ve read this blog are probably laughing. Me, the chick who hates driving, who hates cars, who would rather walk from Solana Beach to Del Mar than take a bus (only 3 miles, not bad), the woman who […]
I still don’t really like driving, but I’m better at it. Better enough at it that as of 09-09-09, I am a licensed driver in the state of Illinois. Only 16 years past the ‘normal’ date. Shocking. I didn’t scan in my own since it has a new fancy reflective thing on it, which makes […]
I am 32 years old, and it wasn’t until August that I took my first driving lesson by a non-familymember/family friend. I am 32, and for 15 years, I’ve not had a drivers license or permit. I am 32, and at 18, I once failed the written drivers test. So yeah, there’s one part of […]
