Ramblings: Spoiled Rotten Nerd

OK. You've probably guessed it by now, but this one's about...Jeremy. He gets all the good titles. So, awhile back I told you all about the car shopping itch he gets every now and then. Well, his itch got scratched and he managed to get me all nice and agreeable by buying me a giant diet coke and a Fall wreath from Costco. And what better day to pick it up then when Hurricane Ike was blowing through Dallas? (This is a shot on the way home--it wasn't really raining all that hard, but the wind was strong and blowing all the spray from the semi's and cars everywhere.) We took Maddie with us and she kept going on and on about how it was her "special day" with mom and dad. Not as special for you as for Dad, little Maddie. But she got a hot dog and sprite at Costco so she was under the influence, too.


This is his new toy. He's been volunteering to run all types of errands just as an excuse to go for a drive...unfortunately, he won't let me strap two huge carseats into the backseat...yet.

While they were going over all the details of how to work all the totally unnecessary gadgets and accessories, Maddie got really bored so I gave her my digital camera and told her to go crazy with it. I laughed at all 40 something pictures she managed to take in about 15 minutes. I have close ups of plants, ceiling tiles, rocks, tire tread, and a variety of objects that were in the room. She really is getting some mad photographer skills...I especially enjoyed the self-portrait of mostly her nostrils and all the many, many shots of the guy helping us. I'm fairly certain she developed a bit of a crush on him.

You know she's my daughter when she pays homage to the Diet Coke with such a great photo feature. She also found a "special rock" and was very paranoid that I would delete it's photo--no worries, it's still here. She snooped around and found the putting green where the guys must go when they're not attacking anything with legs that happens to walk onto the lot...which means it must never get used.




There was a huge red bow in the next room that she wanted to put on the car for the drive home. Good idea, since Dad won't be getting any birthday, Christmas, or anniversary gifts for the next 7 years. Good thing it's a BIG bow.


And I'm pretty sure I remember her taking a picture of Jeremy making out with the ipod plug for the dash, but it must've gotten deleted somehow. But it's probably for the best, I want to keep this thing PG rated.

I've always wanted a car with a big bow on it.
That thing would have looked great on top of the car on the way home! All smooshed and wet on such a pretty car...

So funny! Mike has been wanting that car for the last couple of weeks. He goes and talks to the car guy and drives it and talks to me all the time about the ten thousand little cool features on it like the CD player that stores like 10,000 songs. I won't tell him Jeremy got it because he would be very jealous. Every time I get on the computer it just happens to be on the infiniti home page. I should just let him get it, only if his "itch" lasts a little longer though because he often switches car interests after a little bit! But I do love the car too!!
