My parents have a Camry... actually, they might have the new car now. My mum went and bought a bloody Forester... I never picked her for the suburban SUV type!! She lives in a rural town, but she never drives anywhere you'd NEED a 4WD. Ah well.

Before that, they had a Commodore that was the same age I was. It's on the scrap heap now... wonder how much longer I've got.

Excuses, excuses ...

As for naming cars, that seems to be a bit of a foreign concept to me; none of my family does that. Though my mother does refer to her car as feminine sometimes, e.g. "the poor girl's running out of petrol".

Their winters sound incredible.

So, Ali, how long until continental drift at least gets us down to Hobart's level? I mean, it may not have Canadian winters, but it'd at least be something.

But on cloudy days, I tend to not have the cane, so I'm surprised he hasn't tried yet. I guess now he recognises me and knows I have the cane or something. I lived here for a year without a cane and never got hassled, though!
He's losing his competitive edge

It's a great place to visit, but some places are colder than others in the winter. Vancouver, for example, is relatively mild. But you should visit in the summer, especially Montreal. There's tons of things to do in the summer.

People get attached to things, and cars are usually big parts of people's lives...

I think my car's a boy, though.

Have you ever experienced a cold winter, with lots of snow and -20 degree Celsius temperature?

I feel for Mia, who will have to endure her first full winter. But let's not talk about that yet, as it's still July.

There's nothing like stepping out the front door on a crisp January morning and feeling your snot instantly freeze. Ah!

But seriously, the air is so incredibly fresh in the winter it's amazing. And the snow just keeps falling and we keep shovelling it and it keeps fucking falling

I love the cold though.. I don't deal well in heat. It was near 30C today and humid and it's supposed to be even warmer tomorrow with a nice risk of severe thunderstorms.

Yeay

My housemate can only drive automatic... she was learning manual, but had a run-in with the front fence in her boyfriend's car, and hasn't driven since.
ha, i don't blame you! i still don't let anyone else drive my car!

lol, that's funny.

I hate to do this to you, Ax, but we're going the wrong way. We're getting mushed northwards into southeast Asia, and all that hot humidity.
