zoom zoom

In honor of my shiny, new job (associate editor of home and garden books at Readers Digest Milwaukee -- woot!), we got a new car. And we thought our experience buying the Civic made us feel grown up... It has nothin' on the Mazda3. The Mazda3 is new -- brand spankin' new. As in, its 16" alloy wheels have only traversed over 88 miles of God's green earth. It is, in fact, so awesome that the camera decided to focus on the car instead of us. But as you can see, we're pretty happy. Full disclosure: I'm crushing a little bit, but I don't feel one ounce of guilt because Ian is, too.

So...what should we name it?

PS: In case you're wondering, we picked up the Silver Bullet (hmm...just trying that out) from the wonderful folks -- especially Jim -- at Concours Motors in the lovely city of Milwaukee.

Congratulations on the job and the car!

Ditto what Amy wrote. We call our cars Ponny (the Pontiac Grand Am) and Jimmy (what else, the GMC Jimmy). I couldn't help but think of the commercial with "Zoom, zoom, party starter," when I saw the title of your blog post.

OMG - a job and a car?? All in the same day?? Congratulations :) Can't wait to hear all about it - like :when do you start?; Where will your office be?", etc, etc!
