I’m trying to think of a good name for my car. I always think that it’s a good idea to name my cars, but the names never stick. Yesterday my sister and I were trying to come up with names and I said that I should name it Italy since it was bought with the money I saved to go to Italy.

Lisa thought that I should name it the Italian word for purple, which seems like a great idea, but I doubt that I would really call it violetto or porpora.

Maybe “Little Italy” or “the Grape” or “the Eggplant” or “Ping Tung?” It’s either a boy or asexual, I can’t see a girly name for this car. Maybe Fredrico or Luciano? I already have a cat named Guido.

I’ll check out a Fellini movie this week and see if I can get some inspiration.

I broke it in very well this weekend though, driving it about 400 miles in good weather on four-lane highways, busy interstates, little back roads, extremely heavy rain, and at night. I’d say that I’m pretty comfortable driving it now.
