Thinking Small

Phew! It's been a really long time since I've updated my blog. Sorry, but I don't think I'll be doing the promised DVD Rant that I mentioned earlier. As much as I have a lot of strong opinions on how the industry has really failed to live up to the DVD promise, I just don't have the energy to craft a long argument on the state of DVD's and how the current Blue-Ray/HD-DVD division mirrors the old DVD/DiVX divide at the dawn of DVD's.

Instead, let me focus on what is fresh and new in my life and it will be short and sweet. My life is about to get more fun. On October 31st, I decided to go trick-or-treating at a local car dealership. I ordered a 2006 MINI Cooper S. The great charm of MINI's are the way you can customize your order and make your car....well, yours! Here is what the car should look like when I will get it:

After ordering, you wait....and wait...and wait. It's built in Oxford, England and shipped over to the States. Right now, my MINI is in Charleston, South Carolina after being unloaded from a ship. It goes through the Vehicle Inspection Center and then gets shipped to my dealer. I'm hoping (fingers crossed) that I will see the car by the end of next week. It's quite a painful wait as anticipation really gets to ya.

My MINI will have the John Cooper Works Tuning Kit which ups the horsepower to 207! It should be a little rocket and it's handling is supposed to be fantastic. Interested in spec'ing your own MINI (even just for fun)?? Check out MINI USA's website.
