Wanda and I finally decided on the new(er) car that we would purchase. After much thought and quite a few trips to different dealerships that sucked up a number of our evenings, we made our decision. It almost seemed like we wasted a lot of time because we ended up picking a car that we've both liked from the start: a Nissan Altima. We actually started there, but went from there to a Nissan Murano, and then to a new Hyundai Sonata, then a new Nissan Altima, then a new Honda Fit, then a 2005 Nissan Maxima, and we finally arrived back at Sid Dillon Nissan and back to the 2007 Nissan Altima Wanda had first spotted on their lot when our adventure began so many weeks ago. We did gain quite a bit of valuable dealership hob-nobbing/test-driving experience from all of the time we spent. After all was said and done, it's fair to say that Wanda is a better hardball player than I. I have a tendancy to ramble ceaselessly on many a mundane topic and she, very tactfully and firmly, kept us out of many a bad decision. So, a salute to Wanda! My wife and negotiator extraordinaire.
Here's a stock photo of our car:
I'll have some pictures of the actual car up soon.

It's odd how first, came Myspace. Then Facebook. And now, Twitter. I pretty much accepted Myspace whole-heartedly when I stumbled upon it. Facebook, I resisted for a while. But now I use almost exclusively Facebook for my pseudo-stalking and social (egocentric) updates. I even delved into Twitter. But I really don't see the appeal. There's plenty of hype, with businesses and athletes using it to communicate to potential customers and fans, but I just don't see the appeal. Twitter is pretty much just one big status update, that thing that Facebook pioneered and made it so even the most casual, thirty-times-removed types of friends can see just what it is you're up to at various points throughout the day. Twitter's just the latest craze, that's my opinion. A fad. I don't see the appeal. I guess we'll see, right? Perhaps I'll even get sucked in.
