The triumphant Return of… Christine! Christine came back to Ithaca this weekend, the first time she came back since she left for school. We had a great time getting her reacquainted with NYC. The big news is that we picked up our car, a brand new Toyota Matrix. We got a black 4 wheel drive version to help her navigate through the nasty Ithaca winters. And no, this CAR is NOT an SUV! Sure it is 4 wheel drive, but it gets 30 mpg and is basically a Corolla. In fact, it is technically a Corolla Sport Wagon. We have immediately fallen in love with its sporty little looks and its new car smell… mmmmmmm. The one thing that is lacking is a name. Since it is black and it is a Matrix, we were thinking maybe Morpheus or Neo. But that is too obvious. We need a good Matrix name, so post your suggestions in the comments.
We also had a little birthday party for Christine. JD and Yoshi made a very um… interesting… cake with pure willpower and good intentions. I believe Albert took some pictures, so I will link to them when he posts them. All said and done, it was a great time. I have never seen someone get so excited about the gift of a kitchen knife!
Well, I need to go study. I am off to take the GMAT tomorrow, so I have some studying to do. Why would I take it when I have a great job? A guy’s got to keep his options open! I now also have internet at home, so hopefully the posts will be more frequent. Cheers!
