Survived - without buying a sports car
Having an existing expensive obsession means that I survived "the day" without even buying a copy of Auto Trader in search of a sports car, but I just feel like making a short slightly soppy post about what a good day I had yesterday.

So, thanks for the happy birthdays; thanks for the many and varied anonymous Amazon parcels; thanks to those who came out for dinner yesterday for being wonderful company and well thanks for just all being so nice!

On the subject of Amazon - I've recieved a number of anonymous packages - some of which have been claimed, others have not. So don't be surprised if I can't place what you got me and thank you to correct detail. Indeed the copy of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell I recieved contained a delivery note to someone completely different.

Current Mood: happy happy

Why do you need a sports car? You should settle for earning double your age.

I'm a long way off that :-)

Everyone needs a sports car! The big problem is that your sights get higher with your income. I started off wanting an MG, but when we reached the stage when we could comfortably afford one I'd gone off them. I moved onto a Mazda MX5. Having reached the stage where we can now have one if we want I want a Merc SLK. I know that in a year or two when that becomes sensibly realistic that I'll just Have To Have a TVR Tuscan S. I hate being part of the consumer generation.

I ~think~ I might want an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish that can go invisible.

Just off the top of my head.

DB9 is cheaper and better.

With optional 'go invisible and fire rockets from headlights' option.

At least I seem to recall that AM are doing a 'Bond Spec' car with all the buttons and revolving bits just that it's all non lethal though the link evades me.

It'll set you back a cool 1/4 mil

Is £250K ever cool?

When it's in your pocket?

I'm not sure invisibility is an optional extra on the V12 vanquish. Might be on the DB9 though?

But sports cars are worse than everyone's favourite whipping boy, the 4x4, so why is it ok to have one of them, hmmm?
