Car shopping

I absolutely hate car shopping. We leased a car for the first and last time 2 years ago and now that the lease is about up - I was forced to do the dreaded job. You would think they could make it a more pleasant experience considering how much you are spending - but no - same old "I have to talk to my manager: - How about I just talk to your manager since you do not have the power to actually sell me a car? Grrrrr....
Anyhow - we have it narrowed down to an Acura or a Volvo. I am feeling lots of guilt about not buying from an American company especially with the state of our auto industry but it is exactly that state that has made us choose not to buy from them. I am concerned about dealership closing and where I will have to go for service or how my warranty will be handled.
Anyhow - can't wait for this to be over with and hopefully by this weekend I will be driving a new car.
Friday Fill-ins
1. All children alarm their parents, if only because you are forever expecting someone to get hurt.
2. Show me a good loser and I will show you an easy-going person.
3. Car shopping is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one time. YUCK!
4. Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy running their own households and businesses.
5. I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine a kids activity and an adult activity.
6. It is impossible to think of any good meal, no matter how plain or elegant, without Family or Friends in it.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to take out, tomorrow my plans include finishing up the car buying and Sunday, I want to celebrate Father's Day and the birthdays (mine and Jacob's are on Monday!)

Not crazy about car shopping either. For what it's worth, go for the Acura, according to my girlfriends who drive them, they'd never buy anything else :)
