Car Hunt

I'm afraid that I will have to go back on an offer I made in my previous post.  I will not be able to give anyone a ride in my silvery-blue-gray minivan*.  Sadly it seized up on the freeway last week and may or may not ever run again.  If you know of anyone looking for parts for a 1990 Dodge Caravan please send them my way.

In the mean time I'm on the hunt for a set of wheels - even though I really don't want them, yet can now admit that I need them.  Some criteria I'm interested in:

Decent gas mileage
Decent in snow (unfortunatly this doesn't seem to coordinate with the above criteria)
Decently style'n (Yes I realize (and you will too as you read on) that this is relative)
Under $2,000

Here is where KSL got me tonight:

Ok, this one happens to be way out of our budget, but it IS beautiful

Surprisingly in my budget, but would it be too creepy to be rolling around in this?  I wonder what my clients would think.

Yet another VW beauty.  In my budget, but I'm worried about the up-keep.  What a stellar look though.

I've always wanted a truck.  My concerns: 1. gas mileage 2. is it too butch?

I'm oddly drawn to this one and it's in my budget - I have a feeling it's my goldie locks find

Please send me links to more if you find any others!!!

*ps although I will not be able to give anyone a ride in the silver-blue-gray van Friday night to Park City - mark my words I will still be driving (something) up there, and I hope you're all there with me.

Mongolia & Pink Eye

For the second time in one year I once again have conjunctivitis (or as my nephew Charlie calls it "the pink eye").  Unlike last time though - I know exactly where I got it from.  Yep, this innocent looking germ carrier - Jackie.
Sooo since I decided to be bed ridden today I went to my latest obsession - Netflix instant watch movies.  That's right, if you get netflix you can stream a whole bunch of movies.  They're not necessarily the new releases, but there are a lot of quality shows on there.  

Recent screenings in my bedroom have been Half Nelson, Pan's Labrynth, Born to Brothels (a MUST see, kind of amazing) and most recently (this afternoon to be exact) Wild Horses of Mongolia with Julia Roberts.  I didn't realize Julia Roberts was in it when I started playing it, but she did an alright job.  It's hard not to just be really jealous of her the whole time.  I WANT TO GO TO MONGOLIA, like way bad - and not just because of the horses.  i think I've always wanted to go there because of how obscure it's always seemed.  I like that the people who live there have such simple nomadic lives.  They kind of remind me of Tibetens for some reason.  They just seem peaceful and cool.
Anyway, enough of that rant.  Back to the film - one of my favorite parts is that the kids are so tough there.  They have these insane horse races and these 4 year olds are right there in the races.  When they first learn to ride at 2 (yes 2) they get tied into the saddle so they don't fall.  And I thought my dad was always a little crazy getting us to ride so young - I'm pretty sure I rode with him on his horse until I was like 12.

These are their portable houses that they pack up every month or so and move to a new spot.  Very cool.  Kind of like the yurts that are in the mountains around here, but definitely more portable.
The horses even look tough right?
