I took delivery on my car on Thursday. Her name is Daisy and she's soo cute. I lub her.

I started this Cash for Clunkers at the very start, when they were threatening to shut it down because it was so popular, and I took delivery on the car the day the dealer said they wouldn't write any more deals for the program. Whew, that was cutting it close.

All in all, I don't have anything but nice things to say about the CA DMV. The phone line hold time was nutty, yes, but once I put a request in, they came through with flying colors. When Dear Butcher had to get an registration history printout for the car (couldn't be me -- I'm not on the registration for some reason) he walked in, took a number, and was back out the door again in less than five minutes. He never even sat down. Wow.

Anyway, the Scion is cute and peppy. She needed a perky name. I was going to name her for one of the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel, but Sir Anthony didn't really fit. Neither did Ffoulkes. Neither did Dewhurst. Generally, I'm not a fan of Margueritte, but Daisy seemed to work.

Well, I'm thinking of dolling her up with some vinyl graphics, so she looks a bit naked right now. As long as no one blushes at her en dihabille, then I can go ahead and post one. Or we can consider it a "before."

Dear Butcher is horrified that I'm surfing the web looking for pinstripes, colors, and flames. I've told him I'm not interested in flaming skulls or fire breathing dragons, but apparently he's not listening.

Congrats on the car :)

And I hope all are well, after reading through your recent archive, I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.
