City Car

This commercial cracks me up!

We have both a Smart Car and a Suburban (they cancel each other out) so I can attest to the truth of this.

Translated it says... "As good in rough terrain as a SUV in the city. The smart fortwo. The ultimate city car."

Smart Trooper

Our Smart Car had to go to Buffalo for a tune up and we got a white loaner to drive. I think it looks like a Storm Trooper helmet. Awesome.

Fancy Smarts

We had to go to the Smart dealer in Buffalo to pick up Aaron's repaired Smarty. I nearly passed out when I walked in and saw this pink Smart Car!

You can get so many cool colors and patterns for the Smart Car.

Hello Kitty

Valentine's Day

St. Patrick's Day

We should have just updated the look of Aaron's while it was being fixed!

No one dangles melted cheese in front of your face without expecting something

I got a text from Aaron asking if I wanted to go to The Melting Pot in Buffalo. I excitedly agreed until I realized there must be a catch. He needed me to help bring a loaner car back to Rochester. It was totally worth it for Melting Pot though. Right now they have a French inspired Big Night Out menu which includes Fondue à la France - a cheese fondue with baby Brie, Fontina, Gruyère and Raclette cheeses along with bacon, onions, white truffle cream and chives. BACON!

At first I was disapointed that they didn't have their strawberry basil lemonade anymore but now they have a raspberry sage lemonade - even better!

Amazingly, the same night I was lured to Buffalo with the promise of cheese, it was announced on the news that The Melting Pot is finally coming to Rochester! Yay!

More on the real reason we were in Buffalo. Aaron's Smart car still isn't fixed - not thrilled with our insurance company & their body shop of choice right now (ever hear of totaling a car for less than $2K worth of damage?). Smart Car jumped in and said to get it to their garage to get fixed right and even gave us the use of a loaner car since we have had the rental for so long. I don't think I can say enough good things about how amazing the customer service is at Smart Car.

The loaner Smart Car is white and thanks to today's snow storm, looks like a snowball sitting in our driveway.

Snack Cake Smart Cars

I just saw the Little Debbie commercial with the Smart Cars.

They are so cute.

They even have the frosting swirls across the top.

I am trying to talk Aaron into painting his Smart Car like a giant snack cake too.

Smart Car Rally

Today we went to a Smart Car Rally at the George Eastman House that Aaron helped organize.

There were about 15 Smart Cars there with their proud owners. We had a great ride until a torrential downpour at Abbotts in Charlotte almost washed us away. The day ended with a talk and book signing from NYTimes food writer Mark Bittman.

Aaron was interviewed by Channel 8/Fox News - but they got his name wrong!

Smart Car Rally

Today Aaron talked me into going to a Smart Car meetup in Buffalo. Turned out it was a Smart Car Road Rally and we drove for 2 hours around Buffalo with about 30 other Smart Cars. There was a lot of pointing and picture taking.

Enjoying the Smart Car

Aaron is enjoying his Smart Car.

Did I mention they pulled it out of the show room right through the doors?

A lot of people ask how Aaron fits in the Smart Car. Aaron is six foot four and he fits in the Smart Car just fine. He is busy updating his Smart Car blog.

I added pictures of Aaron's new Smart Car to my Kodak Gallery.
