After months of borrowing Gene's car... and being dependant on other people for rides and whatnot... I finally have a car of my very own. It's the second car that I've purchased for myself. All my other cars were hand-me-down or Daddy Dearest E-Bay Specials (my dad has a problem. He likes to buy cars off ebay. It isn't a good idea. We're pretty sure that one of my cars was hot..).
This is also the very first ever NEW car. Not new-to-me car. I've never driven a new car before, let alone OWNED one. Well. Technically I don't own it YET. Not outright anyway. But it's mine.
After three hours (God, that was a long day) at the dealership... I drove away with a 2010 Hyundai Accent... lime green. Why lime green? Because that's the one that they were knocking a whole shit ton of money off for me (because I'm awesome... or because car dealerships are desperate). I loves it. It's funny because when I test drove it, I drove a black one. I said to Gene when I got home "they are all really cute... and I really don't care about color, but there is this light green and light blue that I don't really care for." And what do I get? LIME GREEN. It is cute though. And I can mock the brightness of my car because it's just that... MY CAR.
