okay... i did it and i'm not embarrassed... really i'm not. i bought an old mazda pickup this weekend to get me through the winter. i was looking at sports cars but decided a truck was more 'practical' for the time being. of course now i'm equipped to invest in a pocket bike next year! and i will definitely have some sort of bike next year (or heaven forbid the year after.) there's just too much happening in my life at the moment and it's safer if i'm not on two wheels. besides, it's hard to date in the winter when all you own is a bike.
