Happy birthday to me

So for my birthday, I got my Prius. Which means I finally got to drive one. Believe it or not, I hadn’t even test driven a Prius before buying one and taking delivery. My reasoning was that I wasn’t choosing the car on the basis of its performance or handling, and I was prepared to make any adjustments necessary to work with its eccentricities. That said, some first impressions: I thought the smart entry system was a bit of a gimmick, and I would have been happy to go without—but in fact, it turns out to be really useful.

Stalking the wily Prius

I’m not going to reveal all the details until it’s all confirmed, but it looks as if I might have been able to locate a brand new 2005 Prius. If all goes according to plan, it’ll be arriving just in time for us to go collect it for my birthday. Would that be too perfect? Will still keep looking for any actually sitting waiting to be sold, though. A Prius in the hand…

Happy… oh, wait

I remembered her birthday. I remembered that it was on the 30th. Unfortunately I was so zoned out this morning that I thought today was the 30th. Oh well, better to wish someone a happy birthday a day early, than a day late.
