This little car has an astonishing amount of interior room, and various ways to configure the seats to carry all kinds of stuff. It’s a theoretical five-seater – which means four people will be somewhat comfortable in it – but has enough space that my 6’1″-tall husband had no complaints about head- or leg room. I currently have it set up as a three-seater – one back seat is folded to create a cargo well – but can change it easily. And there’s no reason that a car this small needs 10 cup holders, but it has them anyway. However, my favorite amenity is the compartment with the USB port; I can plug my iPod into it and listen through the car stereo.
As for the important stuff, it’s got a high safety rating, gets good gas mileage, and is fun to drive and easy to park. But I feel like I should put up a widget in the sidebar to count up how many days till it gets its first ding. Does anyone want to start a pool?
The main reason I actually know about this Delurking Day in advance is because I occasionally delurk at Rude Cactus, which got me on Chris‘ e-mail list – see, delurking has its rewards! And if you lurk around The 3 R’s, be sure to let me know you’re here on Thursday (or today’s fine too, if you don’t want to wait)!
There may be some inconsistencies in the posting schedule here for the next few weeks. I’m heading into the busiest time of the year at work; that usually means having less time to check in on blogs and Twitter during breaks or work on posts during lunch, and being too tired to do much catching up in the evening. There may be days here and there where I’m absent without notice – just assume that means I haven’t had time to write anything worth posting, and I’ll most likely be back in another day or two.
I don’t go in for New Year’s resolutions, but I do tend to re-dedicate my efforts to healthier habits after the holidays. I actually asked for Wii Fit Plus for Christmas, and I’m enjoying the new features it has. I did not enjoy the results it gave me on my Body Test last week, but that was the first one after Christmas vacation (and the first I’d taken in over a month), so it wasn’t exactly a surprise. This week’s test was better, but I still have some ground to make up. Being able to add more variety to my workout routines seems to be helping. Cutting back on dessert consumption and not doing any more baking since we finished off the holiday treats is probably helping too.
Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? How are you doing with them?
What tangents is your mind wandering down these days?
