Addie, this might be a Meatloaf kind of post - you know, "Two Outta Three Ain't Bad". Depending on the model, Cat's car might have a push-button start. Most of the new cars are equipped that way. I got used to it right away. Himself is still thrown for a loop when he drives my car! So Cat, key or button start?

My Sonata is a girl car - knew that as soon as I test drove her. After two linebacker vans she's a blast to drive so I named her "Sally" - as in ride, Sally, ride!

It is a button start! I keep the remote inside my wallet. Gwen said this was a very good feature of the car. It makes it hard to become stolen.

It must sound strange to you but I have gone outside four times tonight to just look at it.

It is very hard to believe she is all mine. Every time I look at her I have the tears.

Your friend,
~Cat

Nope, doesn't sound strange at all. I still wake up to look at my new cars...for about a week.

When I got Knud, my first Volvo and my first nice car, I went to the garage to look at him for months. It also took me over a week to figure out that he was a boy car. Most Volvos are. I think it's because of the emblem:



So, when I got Sigrid, my current Volvo, it took me a week to figure out that she was a girl car. I certainly went to look at her a lot.

Not strange at all! I've had my Sonata for just over six months and still get a thrill when I open the house door to step into the garage and see Sally instead of my old van.

Thank you! I love her! I am certain she is a girl. No. Wait.

Princess Fiona, remember your telling me of not putting the word "the" in front of nouns?

She is THE girl! The girl of all girls.

Ha, I broke a rule.

That was fun!

I still need a name for THE girl, though. I am trying to think of one which will fit. She is very quiet. She is luxurious, and she is very fast.

What of a mixture of the names of us? We have: Catina, Stela, Azia, Kali, and Misty.

Errrmmm. I would ask DA but she is having a nap. She went out with her boyfriend while I was attending school and I think she had some beer.

Your friend,
~Cat

But in this instance, it is appropriate as she is THE girl car for you.
