Got my New Car!

Well, I finally got my insurance payment for my old car, and got a new one today! It’s a silver ’98 Ford Taurus, it’s only got 105k miles (as opposed to my old one with 250k, lol), and doesn’t really have any major problems that I could find.

Humorous bit of information – The car–a Taurus–came with undercar glow lights installed. :P That’d be awesome, IF THEY WEREN’T PURPLE! Haha, stephen says I should be able to buy different bulbs for it, I haven’t had much chance to look at them, though.

Here’s a pic:

My Camera (Nikon D40)

I just remembered I never did update on this older post about what camera I was going to get. I did end up getting the Nikon D40 w/ 18-55mm lens, and it’s awesome. If you want to see some of the pictures I’ve taken with it, check out my Flickr from the link on the right (or if you’re viewing this from facebook, here)

Sayonara!

Car Accident

Great end to a wonderful night last night. Got in a wreck with a girl right in the parking lot as I was leaving work. She pulled around a corner too fast, cut into my lane and nailed the front-left of my car.

That’s how it looks at the moment, here’s a pic with her car as well:

Not the worst accident ever, but it still really sucked. We were both fine, we were only going about 30mph anyway, since it was in a parking lot. Her car took it worse than mine, I think. Her whole bumper caved in, and her car was brand new, only four months old. The damage to mine was the bumper, the hood, left fender, left headlight, and my driver side door won’t open.

But I talked to the insurance people, and fortunately it should be repairable, so I’ll probably end up with one new headlight, a new bumper, left fender, windshield (they think they’ll cover it as well, even though it was broken already, since the accident put a lot of pressure on that area). That, and I’ll have to suffer with driving a brand new rental car that the insurance company will pay for while the repairs are being made.

Switching cellphone providers SUCKS.

Well, this has been a fun week. Our family got sick of Cingular’s crappy service, so we switched to Corr Wireless, signed up a contracct, and I ended up getting the HTC Dash smartphone. Played with it for about a week, and the service ended up being worse than Cingular’s (even though I love this phone).
So now we just got done switching to Verizon, and it SUCKS that I can’t keep this phone since they’re a CDMA network, but I finally ended up getting the LG VX8550 Chocolate 2, and it sems pretty good so far. I guess it’s for the best, since everyone I know has verizon, just about, and I won’t use so many minutes that way.

Gonna mish my Dash though, which is where I actually posted this from. :D
