Wowza. I still can't believe it. Kris heard about a friend that was in need of parting with a car, and she had heard me coveting for a while about it. Either in the spirit of Christmas, or to help me break the habit of coveting my friends' cars, she bought me a 1997 BMW Z3 Roadster. Wow. I can't believe it. Thanks, Kris! (And Santa!)

The funny part is that when she told me to put my shoes on and come outside after we had finished with the presents under the tree, I thought she was going to have me carry in some furniture or something (she's a CraigsList fiend)…
