Yeah, I was cool over ten years ago.

I got a link to Sticars.com from Daily Candy. They sell cool magnets that you can stick on your car to give it personality.

I did the same thing, but with real, well, sticky stickers when I was in high school. I drove a baby blue '89 Plymouth Horizon that had a lot of personality issues, but was very cute and spunky looking after being decorated with a couple of big 70s style daisy stickers. I had a big foot wide one on the hood -- placed off to the side near the shield like a beauty mark, and another on the gas tank.

It wasn't overdone, and people smiled when I drove by (unlesss there was something noxious leaking from the car). I lived in a fairly small town back then, and all the kids at my school(s) and at our local concerts recognized the car as mine.

I don't know how much personality one can give a small SUV, but I'm thinking about trying.

Okay, so a lot has happened...

Since I last (more or less) posted...

  1. My husband was in an accident (he was fine, just scared of my wrath ;>) that ended up totalling my pretty purple Mustang. ::sigh:: I'm just about over crying whenever I think about it.
  2. In between wrecking the car and buying a new one, we had a rental and then a loaner from Levi's boss. Yeah, that was awesome.
  3. So, we had to buy a new car. Now, I'm driving a Subaru Forester. It's green and looks just like every other car in New Jersey.
  4. Levi turned 28 & I turned 29. We celebrated by going into NYC for a day, wandering about Central Park, sharing carrot cake cheesecake, and seeing the matinee of Avenue Q. It was hilarious and we had a great day.
  5. I totally got knocked up. That's probably the most interesting thing that happened.
