Not My Neighbor’s Wife Per Se

But I covet nonetheless. There are two expensive things I want. Scratch that… there are lots of expensive things I want, but two right now I am close to buying, and while the purchase of these things might make me feel guilty, because I know I should take that money and invest it or save it for the inevitable car down payment that looms ever closer as trips to the mechanic become more and more frequent, look at this bike!!!!!

I want it so badly! It looks so Italian! I could only ride it wearing a flowy skirt and white blouse, and with a bell on the front and a basket on the back that perpetually contains a loaf of French bread. Think of all the gas I would save! And how cute I would look on it! THE BIKE. IT MUST BE MINE.

Secondly, I really want a keyboard or synthesizer or digital piano, or electronical piano as I like to say. It has been far too long since I have been able to play the piano on a regular basis, and it is high time I found a way to do so. I’ve been browsing around on the interweb, and I’ve found a very affordable one that has gotten excellent reviews, and I’m this close to buying it online. Would it be dumb to buy a piano I have never actually played? Would it be dumber to let this amazing deal pass me by? I don’t know! I do not know. But I know I am about to drop some cash on one or both of these things, and I am very, very excited.

P.S. After posting this and mooning over the picture of the bike some more, I feel compelled to point out that it matches my blog, people. The colors of the bike match the colors of this very blog (and also my bedroom, actually). If that is not a sign, I don’t know what is.

    You already know my answer.

    Get the bike. Now.

    I say get the bike AND the electronical piano. Fun! :)

    That is a wicked sweet ride. A bike is actually invaluable. The way gas prices are and the need for America to get into shape. Those are the thoughts that should drive you buying that.
    Wil gave me a bike for our anniversary and I have been riding it to work and yes, it is kick ass. Join me in the kick ass-ness of it all.

    just a head’s up. go to cheap cruisers here in l.a.. you can get the color you want, red and white tires, a bell, and a basket for about $150. or less.

    Am I too late for this decision? Go for the bike!

    I feel like an audience member on the Price is Right. shout out to Bob.

    Heather, you are not too late! I’m getting a bike — but possibly not this one, because although I love it with all my heart, it costs lots and lots of money and I’ve been second-guessing my need for this particular one… eeek, what is a girl to do??

    Okay Jackson, Thanks for the tip! But this one is actually an 8-speed trapped in a cruiser’s cute body. I need something that can take me up hills.
