Post no. 5: This one’s about apartments and cars

Thanks to Mr Sweetheart’s employers, we are slumming it in a new serviced apartment while we take time to find a place to call home. The location is great, very close to the beach and Third Street Promenade, which means I have Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Apple and Pinkberry at my doorstep – read: dangerous for the wallet. But it lacks a local vibe, so we will most definitely move once we find a place in an area that’s more “us”.

This is what we call home for now:

It’s really comfortable and has its own washer/dryer as well – which is a huge plus.

So… while I’ve been exploring Santa Monica and Venice on foot the past 2 days (Nike Fuel tells me I did about 20,000 steps in 2 days. Yippeee!!) to suss out the neighbourhoods, I often found myself distracted by another necessity item that I’m EVEN MORE excited for us to get: yep, a car! (I miss my Kimmy K. so much right now – she’s back home in my brother’s care while she’s being sold off :<)

My left brain tells me we should get a Prius as it’s good for the world and our wallet. It appeals to my vanity that celebs drive it too, so even if we don’t rake in the billions like celebs, we can drive a car like one – for cheap. On the other hand, I’d really like a huge thing that will give me the power trip akin to driving a cement mixer but at a much higher speed – think: Jeep, Range Rover, G Class, M Class… the list goes on. And of course… the topless beauties…gahhhh!!!

Anyhoos, these were just some of the muscle marys that I spotted while gallivanting about the streets for the past 48 hours:

I’d like to ride in this with James Dean, and I’ll be wearing gingham pants, a white vest top with tie fronts, and a scarf tied around my head.

This below looks like it needs some love. Pronto!

Jag 4 SALE - not sure if it comes with the engine?

This bad boy looks like trouble. I quickly snapped a few pix and tiptoed away!

But this made me smile… from the ton of junk that I could see sitting in it, I believe it belongs to a homeless person. But a hobo with VERY good taste in my books.

This made me green with envy!

Alrighty, that’s me for now. Nightnight!

“Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.” – Tad Williams
