I Can't Fucking Wait.

Screw Wednesday. I finally bought my scooter. I swore that I would buy one in April and April was almost over. So I bought it on Sunday. It's a Kymco People 50. Whatever the hell that means. And it's a blue very similar to the one in the picture over there. To the left, for those who are idiots.

They wouldn't let me take it home, though. They had to put some miles on it for some reason...I don't know, I stopped listening. I was too busy stroking the handlebars. They purred. I swear.

And it seats two so Kansas gets to ride bitch. That's right...I wear the pants. Only with scooters, I can ride with a skirt. So I wear the skirt. Over the pants.

I had to get an extra large CHILD'S helmet. I have a small, pinnish type head, I guess. Oh well, at least I look like a bad ass in it.

This part is just for my dad:
Hey Dad! I picked the scooter that has the widest wheel base...just for you! No more talk of heart attacks now!

Meanwhile:
Work is a bit slow this afternoon so I'm rocking out to Modest Mouse. It's good music for trying to forget that I'm even here. Sometimes I stare out the window too. There's a hawk building a nest on the ledge above my window. Apparently this is neat. Like...neat enough that some people on the 8th floor set up a webcam and it made the local news. Hippies. I couldn't care less. All birds look the same to me when they're in the air. And probably on the ground too. Two wings. A beak. Yep...a bird.

So I'll post pictures when I take them. I never posted my bike either. Though I'm not sure why I think you need to see pictures of these things. It's not like YOU post pictures of YOUR shit. Two-way street, people.

15 keep(s) me blogging:

You are such an envronmentalist.

Mayhap when the next bird flys past the window you can spray at it with your hairspray.

I also spit my gum into people's bushes. My Mojito Mint Orbitz gum. Well...maybe "spit" isn't the correct verb. I sort of make an "O" with my lips and kind of launch it. Yeah.

Macoosh said...

oooh how much was it? I want one so badly. I love how european they are. and practical.

and i sooo post pictures of my shit so hush up, bi-atch!

Unlike your shoe purchase, I believe this to be a good one and you will get a great deal of scooting enjoyment out of it. Gee, this doesn't break any resolutions or anything, dig, dig. Can't wait for you to take me for a ride with my own giant helmet before you abscond with it.

AxAtlas said...

So what are you going to name your scooter?
Please don't name him/her/it "Jayhawk"...too corny.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Make sure you smack some talcum powder on your butt before riding that thing. And beware of kids with catapults.

Kieran said...

I love how angry you are. You're full of delightful barely supressed contempt for your readers. Perhaps it's the bike. You bad ass biker.

Kara said...

macoosh - it was more than i was willing to part with at first. but i still had "vacation" money left over so it didn't break the bank...only the bank's ankle.

future - you are not allowed to ride it til you've taken a safety course on how not to hit solid objects. kidding.

ax - i feel it will inform me of its name soon enough.

goranas - i always have been...don't know why i should let down my guard now.

kieran - where the hell have YOU been? i guess i have been neglecting you too...anyway...it's the helmet. I look like a Transformer.

Scooters are zippy. Just tell me you're not allowed to ride it on the highway. You'll be squashed like a buzzy wee gnat by some mini-van mom who won't even realize she's hit anything.

I'll be in the corner with your dad, fretting.

Hairspray might become an even bigger part of your life now what with helmet-head and stuff.

Bzzzznyeeeeooooow Go Kara! Go girl! Scoot like the wind! Bzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Kara said...

sam - no, it's a 50cc...no riding on the freeway. and with Kansas on the back, we'll be lucky if we clear 30mph. but we'll look COOL.

Kevin said...

Ciao!

Orhan Kahn said...

Sorry to hear about the extra large childs helmet, that sucks. Atleast it can assist a pick-up line in a bar?

But seriously though, congratulations with the bike. You said you'd do something and you did within the time you set. Well done. I'm impressed.

Jill said...

Excellent! You know, this is the perfect excuse to buy a new leather jacket. All the cool hog riders have them...

Laura said...

I want to ride it! Seeing as I share your pin-shaped, childlike head size I'm sure I'll be able to fit into your helmet for a spin around the neighborhood. I'll even let you (gently) mash the baby if you let me.

Did you get a little kitty helmet so Lula can ride too? She'd look so cute sitting on your lap with her paws on the handlebars.

Kara said...

orhan and kevbo - you two could be twins...look at you! and orhan...i suppose it's better than having an extra large adult's helmet

jill - why stop there? i think some chaps are in order...don't you?

laura - ok, i'll stand and squish your baby while you take my baby around the block. lulah doesn't get to ride. she's been lippy lately.
