If You Want Loyalty Get a Dog

Current mood: animated
“Got to be good-looking
'cause he's so hard to see
Come together
Right now over me”
                ~ “Come Together” by the Beatles

Boys can be so dumb sometimes.  Before y’all get up in arms about man-bashing – I am not going to continue on that path.  I just needed to share a ridiculous text exchange I had in the not-so-distant past, as an illustration of how ridiculous boys can be. 
Boy:  “This is the worst 'text sex' ever”
Girl Genius:  “That’s because we are not having ‘text sex’; we are having a conversation”
Boy:   “Damn!”
Okay, now onto bigger and better topics.  I thought we were going to have a guest blogger today – but it appears that will have to wait.  It is ten days until my birthday.  It is 32 days until my ‘reckless driving’ court date.  I need to call my lawyer.  Bloody Hell!

My rental car is a Ford Focus.  It was issued to me courtesy of Enterprise Rent-a-Car (who did not pick me up, by the way).  This particular Enterprise office is interesting; because the staff is REALLY, REALLY friendly.  In fact, they are so friendly that they encouraged me to call or e-mail them ANYTIME to let me know how the car is.  I have been taking them up on that little offer.  “The Enterprise Twins”, as I like to call them when they are not paying attention, have been receiving little daily e-mail updates all about the Ford Focus Adventure.  Tomorrow’s update will definitely include a discourse on the amazing air conditioning system.  It actually cools RIGHT AWAY.  Like magic!

As far as my new car goes – I think I will try to buy a Honda Civic or a Mazda3.  I have heard good things from drivers of both models and the auto magazines cannot compliment them enough!  I have some specific requirements, however, which must be met before I purchase a car:
  1. Not Silver – I hate silver cars.  They are invisible on overcast days.  My Ford Focus is silver - which is fine, because I do not want people to see me in it.
  2. ABS – anti-lock brakes are a necessity.  
  3. Automatic tire-pressure monitoring – I am absolutely the worst at checking my tire air pressure.  
  4. Un-American – this is not to say I hate the good ol’ USA.  But the Americans cannot build a car that lasts over 100,000 miles.  WTF?!?
  5. 4 doors – I refuse to explain this need.  
  6. Standard transmission – I miss being able to shift gears and now that I am not in DFW rush-hour traffic, I can actually enjoy driving again.
As long as these specifications can be met, we will have ourselves a new car, peeps!

SIDE NOTE:  Tomorrow night, I really want to go to a movie.  I wonder if I can find someone with whom to go.  Hmmmmm.  Think.  Think.  Think.

PERSONAL NOTE: You owe me an e-mail.
