You get a car! You get a car! You get a car! Everybody gets a car!

Dan and I are pleased to welcome the new arrival to our family: a 2011 Nissan Versa.

I knew it was a good sign when we drove up to the Honda dealership in Monrovia, and there was a giant inflated Panda bear perched on the roof. We were there to look at a Honda Fit and walked away with this guy (though the Versa was a main contender all along).

It is used hatchback model with about 35,000 miles. It runs like a champ, and it is a pretty light grey color. The plan is to share this car until we find jobs. Then it will be my designated car, and we will buy Dan something like this or this (or so he tells me).

We got some help from Dan's parents who came into town for two days to say hi and bring Dan's bowling ball, among other things. (Dan's joining Ara's league). We celebrated our purchase in true Pasquini style with some gelato in Old Pasadena, even though it was freezing outside.

When it is 50 degrees outside, no one here whips out the winter coat. I actually saw some women walking around wearing sleeveless shirts. What gives?

It doesn't matter what temperature it is outside. We can always run into our cars and either turn on the heat or the A/C. OR you can have a light jacket in your car. A car is very very important in L.A.

Again a car is your home away from home away from home in L.A.

Treat her well and all will be well.
