So Welcome, Me!
The latest news in this life of mine is that I got a new car. I am now the proud owner (along with the bank) of a 2010 Toyota Prius. Yes, I went hybrid. I've had it a week today and I must say that I love, Love, LOVE! this car. I'm currently learning how to drive it to get the best gas mileage. No long trips planned yet - just back and forth to work.
The Vue has been returned to Saturn and I think I've finished all the grown-up stuff like calling the bank and the insurance company, etc. Buying a new car has been a wee bit stressful (although no where near as stressful as buying the house) and I think I heard my bank account plead for mercy once. But it was worth it!
Work is still kicking my ass so I have no new book or movie reviews to post. I just started a biography of Henry VIII but I'm not far enough into yet to have an opinion. I recently watched Penelope, which I found incredibly cute. What does it say about me that I liked the character more when she had the pig nose? I plan to finally watch The Dark Knight this weekend and I should start getting the first season of Dexter next week so there's a good chance I'll have something to say about one or the other in the near future.
If you haven't guessed I haven't really been doing anything worth sharing lately, other than buying the car of course. I need to work this weekend again so there is little to no chance that I will recover from this bout of temporary brain death anytime soon. I'm hoping to get back to a more normal existence sometime in September - just in time for my 40th birthday and a visit from my parents.
