Born and raised in Pittsburgh, but my heart belongs in Toronto.

The question, O me! so sad, recurring, What good amid these, O me, O life?

Answer.

That you are here, that life exists, and identity;
That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.
~Walt Whitman


Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty... Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words.

New CarRyan and I bought a new car not long ago. Finally. It met everything on my must have list and almost everything on my wish list.

Must Have:
Manual
Wagon/Estate
Nothing older than 2006
NOT. SILVER.

Wish List:
German/European
Leather seats
Navigation/touch screen
Some controls on steering wheel
Ample space between front seats and back seats (for reclining during trips and not being kicked by a toddler)
Sun roof/moon roof

With that list in mine, we went on a hunt and immediately realized that Michigan is not the place to buy a manual import. Interested in an old American muscle car? No problem! Want an import? Eff off.

Instead we decided to turn to Toronto and see what we could find and boy did we have a lot to choose from. A number of the cars were in decent condition, but they just didn't click with us the way we had hoped.

And then, we found the Passat. Oh Passat. How I love thee! 2008 wagon. Manual. Midnight blue. Black leather interior. Luscious leather steering wheel with controls. And SO. MUCH. SPACE. It was love at first sight. I've never a seen a car in such amazing condition that wasn't brand new. Everything was pristine. The only thing really missing from this car was the sun roof/moon roof and the navigation/touch screen. The latter is easily replaceable and I can live without the former.

I'm going to give it a good wash this weekend and post some pictures later.

So excited!
