25 December 2008 — 2009 Mini Cooper S Convertible

Why do I torture myself. I’ve spent the evening watching YouTube videos of the 2009 Mini Coopers. Videos like this:

Boring? I think not. Expensive is more like it. Every time I let myself get into a Mini Cooper reverie, I come close to buying one. Make no mistake: my next car will be a Mini. But I’m going to be good, and either save until I can afford it, or wait until my Focus dies.

I just wish the Focus would dies soon. Like tomorrow.

(Note: I’ve never been a “car guy”. But I have a deep and driving passion for the Mini.)

A Mini Cooper is an awesome car. I hear it takes corner like a race car. Wasn’t the mini in a few action movies? I can’t remember which ones…

My point is that it’s okay to love the MC.
