    389 miles shy

    I was so incredibly close to busting the 100,000 mile mark on my Corolla. I was about a half work-week away from doing so. That would've felt like some kind of accomplishment. But, alas, my Corolla and I were together for a mere 73,167 miles. At the beginning of the week, I traded him in and bought a new 2007 Hyundai Sonata.

    Black was not my first choice. However, given the scarcity of the most popular colors this time of year, they let me drive away in my 2nd choice color but with the "premium" package at no extra charge. So I'm now sporting power seats, some steering wheel stereo controls, nicer trim, automatic lights, lumbar support, a trip computer, and 3 free months of XM radio. So far I'm really enjoying XM. I might opt for the $12.99 a month at the end of the summer to keep it going. There's this one channel called "Lucy" where I feel like I've traveled back to my late high school/early college days of alternative rock. That's fun to revisit every once in a while.
