dinner and sexy cars

Utterly exhausted. Went out with all these faceless people for Thai and too many vodka's and limes last night. Wore boob-revealing top. Felt great when the vodka kicked in. Had a conversation about Cars and Sexiness. For example, I will only buy a car if it is sexy. The Audi A4 is sexy; the Audi A6 is not. Black and red are sexy colours, silver and white are not. Most disagreed that the Toyota was sexy - but I think it definately is a sexy car! Perhaps because Kyle "HOT HOT STUFF" O'Donoghue drives one. Richard drives a Golf 4. (That's before is uber sexy Honda Civic was stolen outside my house). Immediately sexy car. Steve is buying a new car next week. His options - the Toyota RunX, Toyota Corolla, Golf 4. The Corolla is way too "family-man." Toyota RunX has JUST got enough street cred, as long as its black or maroon. The Golf 4 is a little close to home. How can my ex-lover and my boyfriend have the same car?! That is too much of a mind-fuck for my fragile brain at the moment, so he's going to have to go for the RunX.

Men are starting to wear pink. It's big time fashion here. How does one feel about this?
My e-mail isnt working AGAIN. It's driving me up the freaking wall.

i like pink. but there's no escaping the fact that it makes even the most red blooded males look gay.

Am v jealous of all you sexy car driving south africans. I haven't had a car in nearly two years. London is completely crap to drive around in.

What I failed to mention is my car. Bruno, my Uno, is a golfcart with gears, and because he has no airbags, nevermind an anti-crumple bar, means that I would sublime on immediate head-on collision with something as astute as a bicycle. That's why I perve over OTHER people's cars. The thought of taking the tube thrills me to bits, but then I don't take it everyday, which apparently can get quite tedious....

ah - but at least you have a car. Every week as I struggle on the bus with my groceries I pine for the days when I could shove everything in the boot and drive home. the tube is truly vile. I walk for an hour a day to/from a remote train station just to avoid using it.

No I totally get you. It can be pain in the arss without one. We don't have a choice here - there is no public transport, well safe public transport, so you simply have to have a car to get around, or walk. And to walk to work would take me about 5 hours. But still, I know I'm lucky ;)

I haven't seen that fad over here and even if I did, I think I wouldn't participate and let it pass me by. Men are just not supposed to wear pink. I've passed by other fads such as the holey jeans fad, or the wearing overalls with one suspender strap dangling.

Peas on Toast said...

yip the pink thing is rather dodgy. The dangling strap is still MIA however. I'm assuming then, that the dudes in Iowa wear dungarees?

Ed Abbey said...

I refuse to call anything dungarees. Here in America we refer to them as jeans or pants or khakis. We fought a war with England to prevent them from taxing our tea which no one drinks anyway. It was the thought that counted! The second little known reason for the war was that they wanted us to call pants dungarees!

I do say, I am terribly sorry about the d-word, old chap. England colonised us so long ago, we don't really know what you're talking about when you say faucet/sweater/sneakers/miles. Although independence came along in the forties, we still stuck to the English way of doing things. On that note - some of the best tea I ever drank was in the US! Serious! They make lovely little herbal things. Khaki's for us are the ugly taupe threads that people wear on Safari, just by the way:)
