Today Niel and I had both had this Friday off and we decided to go car hunting. Niel got a local paper and circled some cars he wanted to see.
I understood that buying a car meant a lot of research about cars and looking at them, but I forgot the part about having to speak to a sales person. Ewww.
Dealing with car sales people is disgusting. The ones we have met are so aggressive. They are such leaches. I totally understand their livelihood depends on a sale, but for the love of God, no means "get the hell away from me until I need you." We've had salesman (they have all been men) get angry at us, call us clueless and fat. Do you think we are going to get a car from you? I don't think so buster. This makes us not look forward to house hunting, which won't be for a while unfortunately and thankfully. Hopefully we will get a car soon and get this ordeal over with.
After going to four different places we decided to treat ourselves to a movie, Shaun of the Dead. Everyone must see this movie. It was so funny and sweet. I know its a strange thing to say about a horror flick but if you see it hopefully you'll understand. It's about these two British guys in the U.K. and a few friends who have to deal with a virus that is making people zombies. I am so buying this film when it comes out on DVD.
I discovered that a Michaels craft store will be opening in Queens. I was a little bummed when the Michaels in Forest Hills closed down a few year back, and now to have another Michaels in Queens will be so much easier than shlepping out to the island when I need something. Woopie!!!
The latest issue of Real Simple has a good breakdown about both presidential candidates. Unfortunetly there is no link to it so either pick up an issue or I can fax you a copy of that article. Just email me with your fax number. Maybe it will get some people to go out their and vote.
Last but not least Niel and I will get to meet our friends Jennifer and Renzo's baby girl this weekend. Can't wait.
