Do You Love Me, Lady Jane?

Remember that 2006 Prius I mentioned in a post a bit ago? Meet my newest family member, Jane, or Lady Jane as I keep calling her in my head (that was one of my nicknames a looong time ago-not sure why). We’re still getting to know each other, but I like her. She’s hot. She has a rear-view camera and, of course, she has all leather interior. Leather is always ‘in’. She isn’t Bluetooth compatible but she does allow me to plug my phone into the speakers so I can listen to my mp3s or even my Love Book app.  The way those British accents sound in this car-I swear if Richard Armitage is ever put on that app you are going to have to literally peel me off the seats-le sigh. Plus, I think the car liked listening to it as well. I swear I heard her purr, or maybe that was me. Nope, had to be her because I had a too-big smile on my face at the time-Robert Herrick wrote a VERY naughty poem and we’ll leave it at that. I love driving my new baby. She’s quiet, she starts with the push of a button, and she accelerates much faster than my suv. I filled her up last night when she was on 1/4 of a tank of gas and it only cost me $23! Compared to my suv which is $80 a tank, yeah, I think I’m definitely going to love this car. And it will be perfect to use to teach my 14 year old how to drive, which is coming soon. He turns 15 in June.  And she’s red! That’s my girl! Also, I’ll have her paid off in two years. I think I may have fallen hard for her already. She’s low maintenance, starts fast, is quiet, and definitely easier on the pocketbook-what’s not to love? Unfortunately, I think I may have made her sound like she’s easy. Either that, or I have that poem and Richard Armitage on the brain way too much right now. So sorry. Tomorrow I’ll be good, I promise. Although, I can’t make any promises for the rest of tonight. Richard and I may have to have a date tonight-The Vicar of Dibley and The Hobbit with some wine. Yep, sounds good to me.

She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell.

Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.

    My 2007 has less bells & whistles, has been paid off for two years, I’ve had it for 5 and only today have I considered a replacement – some day. Maybe the Subaru Crosstrek. Bit not for another few years. I will probably have this car longer than any car I have ever owned.
