Updateage

Not too much got done yesterday. Nothing really productive. About half the laundry. Had lunch and beer (and a few shot type drinks) with a friend out on the edge of forever. A little closer in than I used to live, but not by much. We are gonna have to start trading off on the driving piece of this stuff.

I had a few summer ales. Yum! And we did a few “3 Olives Bombs”. 3 Olives is a fruit infused vodka that comes in several varieties. Of course the Bomb part of the concoction is Red Bull. They were tasty. We also had a “Red Headed Wench” shooter each. Not so tasty. Recipe: peach schnapps, Jagermeister® herbal liqueur (bleah!) and cranberry juice. But he was buyin’ so... Don’t need to try that again. Certainly didn’t remind me of any of the redheads I have known. **grins**

Have I mentioned I don’t really care much for licorice?

Lunch really shot the hell out of anything else productive for the rest of the day **grins**. Lunch lasted till after FOUR!

Then had a nice little catch up and hang out with serene_orange for a bit. Fun was had by all.

iOS4 - Seems to really kill the hell out of the battery in my 3G. Seriously considering either moving the phone back to 3.WE (Whatever) or just biting the bullet and ordering an iPhone 4.

I’m getting tired of the thought of sinking more money into the Saturn Express. I may not really have a choice...

However...

I’ve been surfing the Mini Cooper Web site today. Looks like if you don’t go absolutely nuts you can get one for under $21K MSRP. Or the extended version for about $21K.

I like the looks of them. God help me if I go test drive one and like the way it feels, handles, etc... I need to stay away from Automobile dealerships *grins*

Now I need to surf the Subaru web site as well.

I imagine so. Since their cars are just sitting on the lots.

AWD or at least a higher clearance vehicle would be nice around here at times. Like this last week when I had to drag my saturn through high water. No damage or anything, but a higher clearance definitely would have let me breathe a little easier.

Hadn't considered a RAV4 or CRV though. Something to think about.

Last SUV I owned was an Explorer. I enjoyed it well enough.

I guess I am right to consider a Subaru as well then.

Thanks.

We had a 2003 Mini - loved it until the electrical wiring harness caught on fire! They have some issues with the early 2003 and before models. You can read about it online.

They also have a funny shaped (angled) windshield that is a total rock magnet. We blew through a couple of windshields.

All that being said it was a gas to drive!!!!

That wide stance would make them road huggers all right.

I really wanted a Mini.. but that was when I was married and he was too tall to fit.

They're fun to drive.

Anyway.. you up for ..whatever.. later?

Jay likes the mini cooper for it's looks, reported handling, gas mileage, etc but he needs a shoe horn to get in one and help to get out! LOL. My first car was an Austin America (which was very much like the cooper - probably because Austin used to make them) and LOVED it.

How tall is Jay?

He's about 5'10" It has nothing to do with his height .. and everything to do with his width. ;)

the 3 Olives bomb thing sounds nice

I don't like liquorice either...or aniseed and I find that's often used in cocktails
