Goodbye, Goldie. Hello, Puli.

Today I got rid of my first car. It was always having problems and about a month ago, it broke down on my way to work.

I loved the color (gold/metallicmustard/whatever), but I think that was its only endearing quality. I was ready to part ways with Goldie, but I never anticipated that the hardest part would be listening to it get pulled onto the tow truck.

The car was stuck in park and wouldn't go into neutral, so it screeched all the way up and almost sounded like it was crying out, "Please don't sell me for scrap! Please don't sell me for scrap! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"

It was awful. I felt like an evil villain from a Disney movie about cars with human personalities (aka Cars).

Here is a picture from four and a half years ago when I first got Goldie.

On an entirely unrelated note, Tyler and I were looking at dogs and have decided that pulis are the coolest dogs ever.


  1. Hahahahahaha. Katie, I love your random posts. They are great. :)

  2. 1st... does your eyeshadow totally match the sweater you are wearing in that picture, or is it the couple glasses of wine I've had tonight?

    And 2nd... no offense, but that dog has a strong resemblance to a koosh ball.

    Love Always!

  3. omg that dog is HILARIOUS. i want.

  4. Leanne: Thanks! We need to catch up. Facebook stalking you is great and everything, but it makes me feel a little creepy.

    Mindy: I can't see what color my eyeshadow is, but I wouldn't have put it past me to match it with my sweater. What's wrong with koosh balls?

    Naishi: I found a picture of it on that NYTimes dog post. It looked like a mop so I had to find another picture.

  5. You look so young!! And I want one too. Let's all adopt pulis
