Do You Love Me, Lady Jane?

Remember that 2006 Prius I mentioned in a post a bit ago?ย 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. ย 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. ย 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.

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    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.
