Last week, after a year and a half, I finally bought a car! Yay!
For the last year and a half, I've been driving my brother Michael's extra car. Now, I know it's not normal for someone to have an 'extra car' but Micky did, and it's been very convenient :) He had a car, he bought another car, and just as he was about to sell his existing car, I came home. He very kindly said 'Drive my extra one until I sell it, or until you get a car' and here we are - a year and a half later!
So finally, last week, after a year and a half, I bought a car! Yay!
Now, it's nothing flash, just a small second hand car, but it had low mileage (which is apparently important) and it's only a four cylinder (which apparently means I won't have to spend much money on Petrol) and Jonny (the brother who came with me to make sure I didn't buy a dud) said it looked 'clean under the hood' (I'm all for cleanliness) and last but not least, it's a cute little car (which was my criteria).
Now, the car only has ONE problem - it has these horribly ugly dophin decals on the side of the car (as you can see in the above picture). I thought 'really? dolphin decals? That's a shame I liked this car... I guess I'll have to look for another one'. But Jonny said it was a stupid reason to not buy an otherwise perfectly good car. So here I am, stuck with dolphins on the side of my car. *sigh* I'm sort of hoping that sometime soon they'll get stuck in tuna nets and I won't have them on the side of my car anymore.... *gasp*
Now, I'll figure out how to get rid of the dolphins, but I need your help to name my car. Every good car needs a name so that instead of 'I'm going to take the Lanos' you can say 'I'm going to take Grover, or Toby, or Nellie' etc. So far, the only real name I've come up with is 'Flipper' and since I'm trying to move away from the dolphin thing, I need a different name.
So let the games begin! Take a look at the car, and send me your name ideas. I don't have a 'prize' as such for the winner, but just think, I'll announce that your suggestion was the winnning suggestion, and then you'll be able to say that they won an international competition!
Can't wait to hear you ideas :)
