I was doing some random thinking and looking around, and because I’m such a stickler for no-frills-utility and clean-quiet-efficiency, I decided to, well, throw those concepts out the window and save up.

You know, for when I might want to buy something.

    i wanted one of those too. but all the money i saved up for a car is now being used to pay rent.

    though, from a practical point of view, they don’t really look all that safe/solid. like, if a big car were to hit it, i don’t think i’d be protected very well. also, i’ve heard they’re not very reliable. so it just didn’t seem worth it to pay that much for a car just because i think it’s cute…

    but if i were rich, i probably would get one anyway.

    That’s my point, it’s totally not practical, but cool. And I rarely do things that are non-practical. I have to start sometime, people think I’m even more boring than I am.

    That’s definitely not good.

    I saw a lot of these Minis in Paris. A LOT! It’s damn popular.

    I’ve seen them a lot when I travel too. Somehow, they’re just not too popular in my little town.

    Probably something to do with the large concentration of poor students.
