iPhone 5s!!!!!!

Who else is totally stoked for the iPhone 5s?!


I am pretty freaking excited.  I really like that champagne color, but I've always wanted a white iPhone!
The iPhone 5c seems a lot nicer than I actually thought it would be, which is cool.
If only the face of it was white!

It's kind of an off pink, though.  It's like a light red, really.  I like my pinks a bit more bubblegum.

 Like this! I totally want this car, by the way.

That may be just because I'm slightly color blind, and I can't tell the difference between dark orange, red, or dark pink half the time....
But I digress!
I was so excited about the iPhone 5s announcement yesterday, I was glued to the computer, refreshing this page every few minutes so I'd know things before everyone else.

I currently have an original iPhone 4.  You know, the one that loses signal when you wrap your hand around it?  Yeah, that one.  Drives me insane.  They said "Put a case on it, it'll stop doing that!" but they LIE!
I don't have too many problems with that since I don't talk on the phone much.  At this point I've trained myself to hold it a certain way so I don't really think about it anymore.
But I think it's about time for a new phone, yes?  I'm pretty much down in the muck when it comes to phones, too, so I only get iPhones now.
By down in the muck I mean, I have an iPad also, and ALLLL my stuff is in the iCloud, as well.  I feel it's just better to stick with iPhones as a result.  Androids are confusing as hell, anyway.

My friends tell me I am a part of an "iCult" that I had no idea existed.

So who's getting a new iPhone, and which one are you getting, the 5c or the 5s?  Which color are you getting?

Disclaimer: I am not paid by anyone to do any advertising for any products, I just like iPhones and Nintendos and cars and etc etc etc...the images I post are random ones I find through google image search, unless I took them myself, in the case of the Nintendo post.
If I like it I'll probably blog about it, that's just how I operate.

I Want A New Car!

I've recently developed an interest in cars.  Used to I figured they were all the same, except in looks, and it didn't matter what I had.
Thanks to the show Top Gear and my boyfriend, I now know, this is not the case.

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus.  It has almost 90,000 miles on it, and has remained mostly unused for the past few years.  Since I moved to California, it's basically sat in a lot and been driven a few feet every so often so the battery doesn't die.  I know to do this now, because the battery did die completely on me a couple of years ago and my boyfriend replaced it, because he's nice like that.

(Here is what a new 2014 Taurus looks's a different somewhat even from the 2013 version, the 2013 Taurus looked a lot like my car, except shiny.  I guess this year they decided to modernize it, finally.)

My car still runs...but questionably so.  It makes a horrible squeaking noise and it doesn't want to accelerate sometimes.

Since I have recently acquired a long commute, I actually do need a car of my own that can make the drive regularly.  

But, I want a new car too, because, for one, the Taurus is INSANELY long, and therefor, very difficult to park.  I have to take a lot of turns very wide, like you would in a 4 wheel drive truck.

Plus, let's face it, it's not a very pretty car, really.  It's a rather bulky, "boat" car.
This one is even the same color as mine! Except it's not covered in bird shit and tree sap.

Now, if I'm honest with myself, I can't really AFFORD new car.  Well, OK so I can at the moment, but as soon as my contract runs out at work (I'm a temp) I am screwed and can't afford a car.
If I get a job closer to home, it will probably be a retail job which means I'll be making a very small amount, so right NOW I could afford a "nice" car, but later I may not be able too.

So what I'm looking at is a Kia Rio or a Honda Civic Coupe.  I would LOVE to get a Honda Civic Hybrid or a Honda CR-Z because I hate getting gas, I hate global warming, I hate hurting the environment and all the little (and big) animals in it.  I HATE IT!  So I would absolutely love, a hybrid...or, better yet, an electric car!  But I think the hybrids may be a bit out of my reach.

I'm hoping to be able to make a post in the future with all cars I wish I could afford.  There are some ridiculously expensive cars out there.
But one can dream....can't they?

Lamborghini Aventador
Awesome, isn't it?
