Two weekends ago I spent a Saturday morning doing big girl stuff with Lacey, one of my BFFs. And by big girl stuff, I mean we went shopping for items such as some movie that was recently released (ahem!), new, Spring-worthy make-up, and new, Spring-worthy clothes. We then had a lesiurely lunch, complete with spinach dip and Bellinis. All before noon. Sans children. It was a good time.
On the drive home, Lacey mentioned wanting to buy an old El Camino, which she would then bling out like nobody's business. A bubble gum pink paint job, sparkly door accents, a plush new interior, and rims that would make a rapper sob for his mama. It would totally land Lacey on an episode of Cribs, no doubt. And I'd be right there with her, acting all nonplussed for the Cribs cameras, while making sure I was clearly visible in every shot. Word.
Honestly...this is one smokin' ride. I promised to be Lacey's co-pilot if she ever sees her pink El Camino dreams fulfilled. We'd be such ghetto fabulous rednecks. Our soundtrack for rollin'? This.
It'd also be funny if she had "I See Ya Lookin'!" printed on the back window. Just sayin'.
Lacey's El Camino lust reminded me of a conversation Nikki and I had not long ago, about our shared love for the movie Harold and Maude. Best. Movie. Ever. Truly, it's in my top five of all-time favorite films. It's dark, it's delicious, and it's definitely one of the most beautiful love stories of our time. Plus, the soundtrack is performed entirely by Cat Stevens. Amazing!In the film, Harold takes a brand new Jaguar, given to him by his very fussy mother, and the top part of a hearse (don't ask, just watch the movie!), morphing the two vehicles into a custom Jag-Hearse:
I've decided the Jag-Hearse is my dream ride. Of course I'd want mine to have a pink suede interior and custom license plates: LULA ROX. Oh, and a rockin' sound system, complete with the best subwoofer known to man. Amen.
And this is probably the post that will scare y'all from being my friend, yet I cannot help but go public. (I waited until April 1 was over to do so. Even though I know April is going to ask me, repeatedly, if this is a joke. She will then mock me for my quirky tastes in movies and automobiles. Right, April?!? And this is not a joke. Sincerely.)
At least I know Nikki will cruise with me in my sweet Jag-Hearse. Any of you game for a lift in the car o' my dreams?
