Busy wrecking my car and having to deal with insurance, body shops, and renting a car.
NOT for the Big Move to Houston next week.
Tonight's post: AUTOMOTIVE REVIEW.
I rented a Chevy Malibu, today. My usual vehicle is a 2005 Honda Civic.
Cue the disinformation:
You: I thought architects made a lot of money?
Me: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! (crying, wipes away tears) Oh, you're funny! And seriously, man: have you seen my health insurance premiums? Hah. You're funny.
Anywho, I'm currently driving a Chevy Malibu.
It accelerates when you don't want it to (i.e. right before you hit an intersection)
It does not speed up when you want it to (i.e. right as you turn in front of a car, full of confidence because it accelerates when you don't expect it to so it must have tons of unused horsepower, right? RIGHT????).
Its radio decreases in volume whenever you take your foot off the gas, so you can't rock out to "Big Pimpin' " when it magically comes on the radio while you're en route from Container Store to your apartment to finish packing boxes (but you run out of tape, so call it quits after an hour).
Its interior finishes look like a gallon of Neapolitan ice cream just threw up everywhere.
My next-to-final recommendation: don't buy one, unless you need to fit large boxes in the back (while your friend from work kind of bends the boxes so they'll fit; friend from work not included with car rental).
My final recommendation: if you forget to buy more packing tape, just remember: you still have a 1/4 bottle red wine to finish before you go to bed! It's just something else to move!!!
