May I introduce myself....

My name is Prince Otto Dumbledore I. Yes I am royalty. My mom being queen and everything!I was manufactured in 1999 somewhere in Britain. A ship was involved and I somehow ended on this ice-cube.

Two weeks ago I was purchased by an excellent driver. The best a car could hope for. Recently I was also threatened with a shortage of patrol any time I would misbehave. And although these two facts have nothing to do with each other, I can only stress the fact that my owner is magnificient in any shape or form, driving skill or parking manner!

I am also very glad that I have a name now and I understand that you lot had something to do with it! My name is simply fabulous. It combines German strength, class and a little bit of magic never hurt anybody! Special mention to Doug! who I understand gets a ride on arrival. I have certain rules about clothing, pastries and bread crumbs on my seat covers, but we´ll talk about it when the time comes.
Drive safely everybody!

Sooo lovely to meet you Prince Otto. I have to admit you are quite handsome! Green has always been a favorite color of mine!

At 09:51, Blogger Biene said...

I think you remember me, Otto, I had the honour to sit in your comfortable seats and listen to beethovens symphony with the soft background music of you humming motor. Your excellent driver brought me safely back home and it was delightfull to meet you. I look forward to the next drive!

Ooooh! Soooo pretty! Congratulations Monika!! Drive away! (but do so with care! sisterly advice there!)

At 14:34, Blogger Doug said...

Very nice to meet you Prince Otto Dumbledore. Be a good friend to our Queen Minka.

Rules? Not my strong suit. We'll talk when the time comes.

Nice to meet you Prince Otto Dumbledore......You look ever so handsome next to the Viking Ship Sculpture. The Ice Queen and I will meet in August....perhaps I will have a chance to meet you then :) AuntieMo'a

At 20:14, Blogger Tan Lucy Pez said...

Does Otto have seat warmers? (If not, you could use Doug for that.)

At 20:41, Blogger windowtomymind said...

Otto Dumbledore, I wish your driver could take me to my next destination...in Germany...inside of you. How warm and comfy and delicious. And best of all you play beethovens symphony. Live long and be careful over all that snow and ice.

At 20:42, Blogger Tryggvi said...

Car looks great Monika, congratulations! I knew there was a Honda in ur future.

At 20:42, Blogger Tom & Icy said...

Nice weather, Spring must be near.

At 22:08, Blogger dddragon said...

Very handsome, Prince Otto!

I like that sculpture that's in the background of the first photo.

At 22:30, Blogger Doug said...

By the way, I think Otto Dumbledore should be able to post comments, too. He is part of the family, after all.

At 22:40, Blogger Minka said...

Logo, welcome and thank you. yay!

Sqauregirl, geniuses pick green :) I chose this car entirely for that reason. I am vain, what can I say! :)

Grandma, I remember you humming-slightly out of tune- along with the melodious beat. You were quite a nice passenger and any time you need a classy right, well...I am right in front of your garage!

Miz B...I will give it due consideration. But I have to test Otto and his capabilities once in a while. I promise to do it when I am not a danger to myself or others ;)

Doug, I am sure we can find some middle ground. Any knowledge about oil change or stuff like that will come in handy!

Auntie Móa, Monika has already mentioned you arrival and we will be prepared. I have huge space between seats, so you feet should be able to rest comfortably!

Otto does have seat warmers, very essential in Iceland. One of the first important things I checked, right after teh colour and teh CD player :)

WTMM, I have nail-wheels for teh winter time. Not so slippery that way. And you are welcome any time your mission brings you here to be transported to all three towns here in iceland :)

Tryggvi, you and Nostradamus=best buds :) I liked Honda Civic once and would not have imagined that that would be exactly the car I´d be getting. But I love it!

Spring is near, whenever you can see the street beneath the snow...dead give-away! Woof!

3D, the sculpture-mom tells me- is supposed to be of a Viking sun-ship. I drove quite a distance to take a picture infront of it, becuase I knew some of you might appreciate it. Unfourtunately the pic is quite dark!

At 00:10, Blogger Tim Rice said...

Minka, great car with a great name! Enjoy it.

Just also want to let you know that for now I'm staying with Blogspot and have posted another picture. I prematurely announced a change before gathering all the pertinent data needed to make a final decision. Shame on me.

At 00:31, Blogger Tim Rice said...

Minka, I worked with your picture of your car and the sculpture in Photoshop Elements 2.0 and it is not quite so dark now. Would you like me to post it on my web site so you can save it to your computer or is there an email address I can send it to. If you want to email me, you can access my email address from my Ramblings profile page.

The Queen's chariot has arrived! Pleasure to meet you Prince Otto Dumbledore. What a thrill for this gal sitting in Virginia to see this handsome ride (love the sporty spoiler), his pretty owner and a slice of Iceland.

You know where I come from it's tradition to toss money (pocket change) into a new car for good luck. So if your highness will allow, I'll virtually open the back door and toss $1.47 in for good luck. :)

(Btw, Monika, I'd have been here sooner, but Blogger kept telling me I was "Forbidden". Forbidden from my sistah's site? That Blogger has another think coming!)

Oh and I call seat warmers butt warmers. I figured you really needed to know that. ;)

At 01:06, Blogger Minka said...

Tim, that soudns great. I´ll try to enter your e-mail, since I feel uncompfy giving mine here. If it doesn´t work...I´d appreciate a pic on your blog I could copy. You are such a sweety!

Sar, hey that happens to me too, all teh time. I just re-click it and then it often works. And it never matters when you arrive, as long as you do, ´cause I´d miss you terribly!

Hey, there are now Kronurs and Dollars in my car. How worldly of us (I didn´t know about that tradition!)

At 01:34, Blogger snavy said...

Prince Otto Dumbledore I - how very regal - I love it!!! And, I think he really likes you!!

At 01:38, Blogger Minka said...

snav, You can tell? That is so great. yes, he feels an extraordinary amount of love, companionship and funding-dependency! It is my first car and I am over-joyed!

At 01:45, Blogger actonbell said...

Hurray for Otto the auto! Woohoo!
The scenery in those photos is magestic, fit for a prince:)

(I had Sar's "forbidden" problem, too, but not just with your page--whatup?)

At 02:18, Blogger Johnboy said...

Nice Chariot my Queen! I said that I liked Otto Dumbledore when I voted do I get royalties in the next movie? Maybe just a royal honking of the horn as you drive by? :)

At 02:21, Blogger Johnboy said...

What is the art work behind your car called? Does it represent something Viking? Is there even a story behind it?

At 02:57, Blogger Hale McKay said...

That's a great name for a great car. Congratulations on owning your first otto, er ... auto.

At 05:51, Blogger Jamie Dawn said...

I can understand that you don't allow pastries or bread crumbs on your car seats. But, you don't allow clothing on your car seats? Does that mean that you drive around stark naked?

Prince Otto is super!!

At 10:45, Blogger Minka said...

Actonbell, it is weird but it keeps happenign to me too. Once I wanted to enter Waking Ambrose and I got forbidden...I almost died!

A Royal Honking coming right at you! Prince Dumbledore the I, has no interest in making films though...somehow the cars always end up destroyed! The structure behind my car is the skeleton of the sun-ship. A Viking Ship. I always pass it when I drive downtown and I just love it. I know little more about it, but I will make it my business to research!

Hale Mckay, welcome here. I don´t think I have encountered you here before. And Thank you, mein Auto ist das allerschönste Auto auf der ganzen weiten Welt!

Jamie Dawn...I was just talking about dirty clothing and stuff, but your idea is so much better. I once drove naked in a car and I was so scared teh police would stop me. It was late at night and I made it safely home!

At 23:03, Blogger Tim Rice said...

minka, it almost sounds like there must be a story behind your comment to Jamie Dawn. But never mind. :)

At 00:09, Blogger Minka said...

Tim, you are quite right. maybe one day I will tell this story. Quite amusing actually!

At 22:00, Blogger ariel said...

hi, Prince Otto Dumbledore I! you look good + I've always liked big cars like you, too. you're gonna make a great couple with Monika. cheers!

At 22:49, Blogger DeAnn said...

Welcome Prince Dumbledore. Can I call you Otto?

At 18:37, Blogger Minka said...

Ariel, yes he is just lush!

deann, Otto will be fine! But if important people are around he prefers Prince OTTO!

At 23:24, Anonymous Joel said...

Prince Otto has a very nice ring...it was my vote as I recall.
