New Ride

So I am trying to buy a new car and in order to avoid any headaches I am doing everything online via e-mail. I thought it would be easy to just e-mail the dealership and say this is the car I want and nothing else. I made it clear that I only want this model with those colors and those options. I don’t care if I have to wait weeks for my car because I want it MY WAY and they have to order it. Well, think again. It has been over a week since I started this and just now I am staring to get good quotes. I am in contact with four dealerships since I want the best deal. I refuse to call Don or Tony or David or whatever their names are because I hate talking to car sales people. They’re evil.
Hah, speaking of the devil. One of them just outbid the others…..

Update: I guess we got it! We’ll go tomorrow and if everything goes well I’ll order my new car!!

Missed it

I missed my Blogiversary. It was March 28th. 3 Years! That’s a long time.
So, there you go.

I did it

I finally booked tickets to go to Germany late this summer AFTER the World Cup. I had no other choice since my brother refused to change his wedding date. I’ll be there for 2 weeks. The tickets are so damn expensive that I have to fly out on a Monday (and miss the whole weekend) and come back on a Monday. Oh well. This will be the first time I am flying Continental. We’ll see how that goes. They are the only airline that has a direct flight to Hamburg from Newark, which means I get to fly out of Reagan National, which is great.

Other than that life is good and busy.

As a George Mason University graduate I would have loved to see them beat the gators and UCLA of course, but it shouldn’t. They did great. It was funny at our house since we usually are huge Gator fans, but mostly concerning football. Obviously GMU was my favorite but I was happy that the Gators got the championship.

Anyways, I hope I’ll be able to post more soon. I hate not being able to vent, especially now that it’s getting warm out side and all the tourists are returning to the metro….
