Introducing: Olive Penderghast

I just realized I never formally introduced the newest member of our family. I would like you all to meet Olive Penderghast, my '98 Audi A6. She's the love of my life and I have a feeling we're going to be very happy together. (If you're wondering where I got the name Olive Penderghast, first notice that my car is green. Then if you're thinking the name sounds familiar, you'd be right. It's from a little film called Easy A starring Emma Stone. I'm kind of in love with her and her character. Can I grow up to be a girl in high school who gets paid for fake having sex with people?) My favorite thing about the car is the tan interior- it's SO gorgeous. I feel all fancy in it.

I can't tell you how amazing it is to finally have a car of my own. It's my own little space in the world. Knowing that I can hop in at any moment and Olive and I can head out on an adventure is totally rad. I mean, we mostly go from home to school and back again, but still... The potential is REALLY cool.

Hey guys, guess what? I'm a car owner! Just like a real adult!!

(Do I look like I"m trying to sell the car- like one of those girls in the local car commercials? "Come on down to Dave White Chevrolet and get yourself a deal!" Well I'm not that girl. Nope. This is me trying to "act natural" next to the largest investment of my life. That smile is pure awkward.)
