the story of an invisible girl

Monday
My new car just passed it's 100-mile mark! It was at 99 when I pulled it into the garage last night. I'm thinking of naming it "Sparky". Is that a good name? I'm not certain yet. I think it must be a boy car, 'cause it's blue.

I'm looking out my office window right now, and it's snowing up. All of the snowflakes are flurrying toward the sky. This will save me a lot of shoveling trouble tonight.

Well, vacation is over, and I had 2 skating practices yesterday. First a speedskating practice (which I hadn't done in over 2 weeks!), then a synchro (not for 1 week) afterward. I felt very out of shape, especially at the speed practice...I could tell I'd done very little exercise for the past couple weeks.

At synchro another girl and I collided during the back-lunge passthru and we both fell. I landed squarely on my left butt-cheek, which is precisely where I landed last time I fell. As I recall, it took about 1 to 2 weeks to heal last time. *sigh* It's not a major injury or anything, but it is annoying. Sitting is a little uncomfortable, and also any maneuver that uses that butt-muscle (standing up, sitting down, going up stairs) is painful. I tried sitting on an ice pack for awhile last night, but I think all that did was make me cold. Best to just try to ignore it...it'll go away soon.

Sparky!

That's a great name for a car! New car - much much fun! Congrats!

I had a (crappy!) car named Chipper (not sure how that happened) ... after we sold Chipper, we later got mail from some big government agency, I think it was the border patrol type people ... anyway, apparently wherever it got sold from (we traded it in) it got used in drug smuggling down in Mexico, and we were the last recorded owners, so we got to find out about it. Isn't that exciting? We had no idea Chipper was so bad!

My sister in law's dependable Toyota truck is Jessie.

Wasn't this all fascinating? Congrats on the new car ...

Your other choice, of course, is Duke ;)

Re: Sparky!

It is fun! The only bummer is it's all snowy and dirty out, so it doesn't look as pretty as it should. (Not to mention I'm terrified of some idiot on the roads messing up my new car!) Looking forward to summer. 'specially since it has a power moonroof!

Wow, now that is really funny, about Chipper. Apparently he was just raring to go and do some evil deeds, so as soon as you set him free he fled to Mexico...

haha! Duke, now there is a possibility I hadn't thought of! hmmm, I'll have to evaluate his personality and see if he's a Duke, a Sparky, or somebody else.

Why is it that women seem to have this impulse to name their cars?

Maybe for the same reason men have to name their boats?

Does this mean you're going to paint his name on his stern, in little flowing cursive script? I wouldn't recommend christening him by breaking a champagne bottle on him, though that might work if you bought a '63 Cadillac. I like Sparky for your car, tho, it's kind of a sparkly color. My mom had a pumpkin-colored TR7 named Pumpkin, and David A. Truck was what she named 2.5 tons of "gross green", with the A. standing for Army.

Sorry about your bum!

hmmm...might be a good idea! It could look tres spiffy....I agree that a champagne bottle would be a bad idea. Gotta keep the shiny new finish as long as possible!

My bum is very...bummed....thanks! (:
