Green Car

I got another car this evening. Bert bought it for me...he'd do anything rather than drive me to work.

Then I drove it to Belfast International to pick up Jamie. Don't ask me what the car looks like because I haven't actually seen it yet. It was dark. I'm told it's green.

Health to drive. Enjoy the new motor. It is very exciting to get a new car.

Is it still green in the daylight? I mean, youse get daylight over thonder in the colonies, right? Or did the evil Imperialist Brits take that away, too?

A wee photo of your car, surely. And a name. Cars need names.

(I hope all is looking better with you, too. I shall endeavour to potter over at Easter to cheer you up. That shall me one of my mission objectives.)

I'm with Stray, a name is all improtant.

Ronni said...

Congratulations!

Ganching said...

I'm very disappointed - I thought when you said "green" car you meant one that ran on biogas. Oh well good luck with it.

Sandra said...

You have been in London too long, Ganching.

Nelly said...

So what would be a good name for a dark green, 10 year old VW Polo?

Stray Taoist said...

Hestia?

Chloris? (Might be more apt)

Stray Taoist said...

Sorry, wrong transliteration.

Khloris.

Nelly said...

Khloris sounds like it might be missing an i and a t.

And Hestia doesn't appeal. I used to work for an organisation calling itself Lee Hestia.

Stray Taoist said...

Verity? (I was going for Verdi, given the greenness, but it sounded poncey.)

I have now given up on Greek mythology. My thoughts turn to other classical literature.

Nelly said...

But it's not a classic(al) car. What about a germanic name? Magda, Gertrude, Waltrud?

Brumhilda

Sandra said...

Melanie. Melanie sounds fun. Or Jemima.

Nelly said...

Calling the car Melanie would get confusing as we've a good friend with the same name...and Jemima is my pet name for Hannah's boyfiend.

I like the Hilda idea but not Brum maybe Bum, Bun, or Grunhilda?

StrayTaoist said...

Gretchen?

I thought of Wagner on the way in this morn, but old clever-culture-clogs Wulfie got in there first.

Grendel?

beowulf said...

Scharnhorst? Tirpitz? Bismarck?

Nelly said...

Ivy.

Sandra said...

Theresa?

Nelly said...

Are we going down the road of patron saintage now? Where is Ganching when we need her?

Fidelma?

I like stephen's idea of naming cars after battleships. As a consequence, my next car will have to be called HMS Repulse.

Yes, this will attract questions, but no more than the current ones directed towards Milla.

beowulf said...

Mine is currently called Fifi, and is as high maintenance as the name suggests.

beowulf said...

She's also very dirty and has a problem with reverse gear.

Nelly said...

Sounds saucy! Is she French?

beowulf said...

English. But that reminds me, thon girl off the Renault Clio ads is amazing.
