Car Shopping Day 2

I was running late this morning but surprisingly I got to classes on time! I got an A on my test and an A on my essay!!! GKDSGHSJKLGHKSKJ!!!
Ahem. Heh, for cultural anthropology we have term projects where we have to do an oral or written presentation on something about our own culture. It doesn't have to be..for example, a paper on my religion. It could be on belly dancing if you're very much into it. I had an idea with mine and ran it through the professor, she okayed it :D
Harry Potter! It's such a huge culture, people around the world know the name and it has changed my life. So that's my topic and I'm going to do an oral presentation so I can show off the two fan art commissions I have (with full credit to the artists of course) and I might play a Wizard Rock song :B
I'm excited! It helps that the teacher was all for it, she's a fan too x)

Anyway, after class was the first Anthropology Club meeting. Elections and such. I'm rubbish at math so I didn't want to be treasurer. I was elected secretary, heh alrighty! Good to pad my resume! At least it's a club with a subject I enjoy (it's my major!). We're going to be going on little outings, maybe to restaurants to try different foods, museums, etc. The teacher is trying to put an archaeological adventure together to Belize! That won't happen anytime soon but if she does, I am so signing up!!

After school I went home to get mom and then we went to look at more cars, this time Honda and Toyota. Toyota guy was a jerk, made me feel like an idiot D:
I test drove the Prius..it's alright. Not too impressed. Oh, I'm impressed with how nice it is on the planet but I didn't like how it drove so that's off my list. Same with the Yaris, heck it was actually uncomfortable for me so that's out. So I think I ruled out Toyota.
After Toyota was Honda. We didn't know that to test drive you need to make an appointment. Alright, I'll make one and test the cars out later this week. I'm looking into the Fit, Civic, and Civic Hybrid. I was very impressed with the hybrid. I really hope I like how it handles because I can see myself with the Civic Hybrid. I also have to test drive the Mini Cooper so I'll probably make an appointment with Honda and the Mini people for the same day.

Vet tomorrow for all the pets (not including rats). Joy, shots for the dog and cats and checkup for all. Neville doesn't need his shots thankfully. Oy vey, I need to change litter. I got that wheat litter which is great for the environment but it's crap. It's stinky, clings to the box, attracts bugs, and makes Neville smell. This is where it's freshly scooped too! I picked up Yesterday's News :P

Damn weather, make up your mind! Stupid weather. *growl*

Sorry, I know I always seem to butt in when cars are involved. XD I just want to make sure you get your money's worth, since your new car will last you a long time hopefully. :3

I honestly wouldn't get a Hybrid car of any sort, they break down. A LOT. As a mechanic, Brent saw more Hybrids come in more often than anything else, and you have to change the batteries every couple years, which cost around $2,000 to change. Maybe in the future they'll be manufactured better, but right now the maintenance on them costs more than anything else on the market. Not to mention, you usually have to go straight to the dealer to get it worked on (which is expensive in itself) because not many people have experience working on hybrids yet.

i don't know why i hated the Yaris :S but bought a Versa XD probably the brain washing from my bf is for something XD even if it wasn't intentionally lol but being around guys from the np club (nissan performance club) i think you have some preference xP

I couldn't really even fit in the Yaris! It wasn't my size because I will admit I'm big. Nope, it was my legs, I was hunched up!
Nissans are good cars. My mom's previous car was a Maxima wagon that lasted her 21 years!

OF COURSE YOU WOULD DO HARRY POTTER...:P
Sheesh woman...
hahaha
Secretary is alright, I am not much for writing and keeping track of minutes and such...
Belize is cool, you should totally go...
Car salesmen are usually jerks to women...that's why I'm glad I have Dan...it doesn't hurt he is super tall and huge too...:)
I love the Yaris...I got to sit in one and I just like em...but Dan can't fit in the passenger, so I have to think about him too...

The project is on any form of my culture (sub-culture) that has a big impact on my life. I've made great friends through the fandom and, let's face it, I know Potter. So yah, I'm going to do it ;)

I'd much rather write then work with numbers. At least I only have to say when it starts, ends, and what goes on.
Yah I'll totally go if it comes up. There's quite a number of countries in S. America I want to go to. Peru, Chili, Brazil, and Argentina are my top! I want to visit Antarctica the most because it's so wild and just pure. Yah not as pure as it was, but still!
Two of the dealers were nice. The Mini dealer was great and the Honda dealer was nice. Both Toyota dealers SUCKED. The Ford dealer was alright.
I can't fit in the Yaris, my knees were locking up because it was so cramped.

I know, I was just stating why I chose it ;)

Well there's hardly any people in the club right now so I had to run!
Did I say 'chili'? I know it's Chile, that was a brain fart right there xD

I have a really long torso...it's so weird, my mom always liked to say that, hehehehe...:)
Like when I got my belly button pierced, the piercer even said so...:)
But I think my legs are pretty average...
