Waking Before the Alarm

In the morning, I'm a big sleepy-head. I can sleep through alarms. If I actually wake up I'll hit the snooze. Not a morning person.

But I woke up ten minutes before the alarm this morning because this afternoon, I'm going to pick up my shiny new Prius.

Back when we finished our electrical work, I got on several waiting lists for a Prius, but was told "expect to wait 6 months." So, I was waiting. Then Kevin mentioned that Google had an internal list for Prius stuff, and there were some dealerships with extra ones. He forwarded me a couple of the messages. I called Hashim out at the Toyota dealer in Tracy. He said, "I don't have that right now. Hmm. And I don't have that on my list coming in in two weeks. How serious are you?" I said, "If you can get it, I'll buy it." He said, "Okay, let me give you a call back." Two hours later he called and said, "Okay, I've got good news. I've made a paper trade with another dealership, so I've got Black, package #7 with grey interiors coming in. It's landing in SF on May 25, and should be here a week later. It's yours if you want it." I proceeded to jump up and down and bounce around my office. Want it? Oh yeah! What's more, he's giving me a discount off MSRP since I heard about it through the Google list. Rock on.

So, bouncy bouncy hooray. Today I go to pick up my Prius in Tracy. Shiny new car. With all the bells and whistles. Can't wait!
