Today was a good day in many ways, first and foremost because of the wonderful news about the release of the 3 remaining CPT hostages (I’ll post more about that later in another post).

The second reason though that it was a good day was that I got things finalized in buying my car! It is a 1997 Ford Taurus GL that I bought from a dear friend, and because it was her car for so long I can’t call it anything except the name that she gave it, the Butterfly (she even had a personalized license plate for it… which she kept but I still think the car should keep the name).

Anyway here’s two pictures of it…

The main reason I bought it was that I always liked the way it drove (I’ve been on lots of road trips in it with my friend), but also because it gets around 30 mpg on the highway which is a plus. I still kinda hated to go the car route at all (I would love to be car free and biking everywhere), but it just isn’t very practical to bike 22 miles each way to work.

Oh and the best part about the car is the bumperstickers that are still on it. I think I’m going to keep the stickers on it (except I might scratch off the “Y” in the “Your ignorance is their power” sticker, because I think it is more accurated and true to say that “Our ignorance is their power”
