Grey ghost


After spending a rainy Pride with the folks from GLAD, Petunia and I headed out to the Toyota dealership yesterday to buy our new car. Um, yes--NEW! With new car smell! Neither of us has ever had a new car, so we're very excited to be the first owners of this 2006 Corolla CE (color: Phantom Gray). I'm proud of my negotiation job, too--many thanks to my dad, who told me to play dealers off each other until I got a price I liked ("You have to play the player"), and to my mom, who's the Biggest C. Ever of Car Negotiations. Her advice got us a free cargo net for the trunk and gave us confidence to walk away from good, but not great, deals. Thanks again, Mom and Dad--now your grandchild will have a reliable ride and her/his mamas won't be shitting themselves over repair costs. Sweet!
