I took the afternoon off to go car shopping with the hubby. We'd seen a few locally that we liked, so we went back when the dealer was open to ask. A few hours later, we had traded in the old beast (a 1997 Grand Am with something like 268,000 miles on it - yes, that many zeros) and were driving this home:
The sun isn't shining on it, but it's a really neat paint color. In sunlight, just the right angle it looks turqouise, another angle it looks royal blue, in the shade more of a dark slate blue/turqouise. He likes it, so that's the important part.
It's a 2005 Grand Prix, for those of you not well versed in cars!
For now, I'll keep driving the Neon, but I think it's going to be replaced relatively soon.
And now I have to go make some more blocks. After looking at the picture again, I realized I'd put mine together wrong. I sewed the two same-color trianges to each other to make a square, not a bigger triangle (make sense?)... That's what you get for sketching it in pencil... The question is: should I send out the wrongly-made ones? Hmmm...
