isn’t she lovely?!

13 March, 2008

It took three visits to the dealership, three different people looking at and/or driving the car (me, Ryan, and my dad), and this down payment (eek!):

…but now I am the proud owner of a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville!

I’m so excited! What should I name her?

    My favorite name of the moment is Ella. That’s my vote. I also like Sully.

    Congrats! Your very own!! 🙂

    Astrid. The more I look at your car, the more I think it screams “Astrid.” She’s gray silver and that makes her futuristic. To the moon!

    Lucky, Claire, of Mrs. Belvedeare (sp).

    Is it gold? It looks kind of goldish to me. If so, I vote for Goldie or Golda or Oro. Practical, I know. Congrats!!!

    Ooooh. I like Goldie.. like Goldie Hawn!! Or Lola. Because she’s sexy.

    Amber: I like Ella too!

    Rezzie: Astrid is a possibility.

    Poppy: Oh! Claire is my favoritist!

    Aunt Tine: Heh. Technically the color is “Light Bronzemist” which I’ve taken to mean that depending on the light, she looks silver, grey, tan, or gold. It’s like camoflauge.

    Norma: Heh! Lola is cute too!!!

    Thank you everybody for ideas!! 🙂 I will let you know what I decide on. Naming your car is serious business. 😉

    Okay, so the obvious choice is Bronzemist. You can call her Misty for short. What the heck kind of color name is that?? Funny.

    I think you should drive her for a while and see what name pops into your mind. When I first got my jeep, I named her Bella right away but then after a few days, I noticed I started calling her The Beast, because she was so much bigger than any other car I had ever driven. Now, her name is just The Beast.

    Aunt Tine: Exactly! It’s just a weird color in general, so I suppose they had to give it a weird name. On the upside, if I decide to rob a bank and use it as the getaway car, no one would catch me. The eyewitnesses would all call it different colors!

    Amber: I think you’re probably right. 🙂

    PLEASE rob them extra for me, K? I promise to be your fake alibi.

    I’m planning a bank robbery with a future lawyer. Nice.

    Aunt Tine: *giggle* Well, you know…

  16. 19 March, 2008 3:49 am

    Okay…before you get carried away. Lola? May I remind you.

    “Well Im not dumb but I cant understand
    Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
    Oh my lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola”

    Nothing cute about an adams apple in a miniskirt I assure you.

    Might you consider Winnie? Its popularity peaked in the 1880’s, but I think its makin a comeback.

    crywithme: HA! Good point. Lola is out.

    Winnie isn’t so bad. I can’t believe people named boys that…maybe short for Winslow or something? Anyway, Winnie is one of my favorite literary characters (if you can call it that…). From Tuck Everlasting!

    I’ll be making an “announcement” soon, though. I may have found just the perfect name.
