Inspired to Abundance 2016 – Sum 8

Seeing as Sum 6 went to learning to drive and a learner’s license, I’d bloody well better get a car!

The sum to spend is $25,000:

$18,000 – Used Toyota Prius (2012 or newer) in TARDIS Blue

$6,000 – 1-Year of Insurance Paid in Advance (appx. $500/month)

$1,000 – 1-Year of Gas Money (appx. $83/month)

$25,000

∴  If I had an extra $50,000 laying around, I’d sink it into a decent, eco-responsible car. I’d love to have a car, honestly. I’ve “opted out” of having a car for many years, because I  really didn’t want to be part of the drain on fossil fuels. Another reason, was because I’ve been afraid of driving in a big city with so many road rules and crazy people zipping around like they’re mental. By that logical observation, I really don’t see why I shouldn’t also be zipping around, and with the many mental cases currently possessing a license and driving a car, I would very easily fit in. That, and if they can get a license, I could probably get one, too.

Blue Morpho Butterfly

When I lived in Brazil, I saw a shop that carried plaques depicting people in various aspects of life. It wasn’t until I looked closer that I noticed there were wings of the blue morpho butterfly incorporated into each scene. I was only 14 at the time, but that sudden realization left me feeling sick to my stomach. I couldn’t understand how such beautiful lives could wantonly be sacrificed for cheap, tacky excuses for art. As much as I said I wouldn’t do it, I’m thinking my next tattoo will be a butterfly after all, a blue morpho, Ok, maybe not the “next” tattoo I get, but I’ll find a spot suitable for one. ;0)

My T.A.R.D.I.S.

My T.A.R.D.I.S.

I’m so far behind on my blog… Oy vey!

Just last month, on August, 27, I got my left forearm inked with an image of the T.A.R.D.I.S. (time and relative dimension in space), from Doctor Who. I was never much into the series when I was a kid, but the latest re-tooling of the Doctor has myself and my Elflings hooked. Between the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), the 10th Doctor (David Tennant), and the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith), our favourite here is David Tennant. If you get a chance, watch the version of Hamlet by the Royal Shakespeare Company, it’s wonderful!
