I am one of those crazies who goes out shopping for Black Friday, but you see in my family it has become a tradition. We have been doing it for about 5 or more years now. We tried not to do it last year but my nephew looked so devastated that we realized he was correct when he said "but...it's tradition..." It was now a tradition in our family and though we do not need things like big screen tv's or Playstations, we can always use new clothes (especially the kids) or movies. I tend to use Black Friday to get all my XMas shopping done, and buy myself any movies, music or clothes that I've been wanting. This year, I treated myself to something really, REALLY nice. I got a new car. Now, I've been planning on this car for six years and been saving up the money for three of those years, working long days and earning Overtime when I could. My loan is still large compared to others but this is a Dodge Charger SXT AWD. Oh, and it came nearly fully loaded. I've had it for nearly a month now and it still feels surreal that it's mine.
Now those who know me, are aware that I tend to name items that I use a lot. My computer is Nefertiti, the old retired laptop is Cleo-Debu (Fatty Cleopatra), my previous car is Baby, etc. I was thinking of naming the Charger Bluestreak (from Transformers) since it's dark grey and chargers are now being used by law enforcement in some counties/states. Then I heard the horn and felt that it was waaaaaaay too girly-sounding to be named after Bluestreak (who is a boy). So I have named it Abby, after the character from NCIS. The car is so jam-packed with technology that it just reminded me of Abby Sciuto.
Anyway, I know some of my friends have wanted pictures of it and I don't have a lot right now. I'm hoping that once it warms up, I'll be able to take some more. ::
Below are some pictures of it:

Just wanted to share.
