Dammit, now I'm gonna be dreaming about this for months -.-

So we're driving over to my buddy's workshop to get some of the old gang together for dinner and drinks, and my buddy asks me, "so if you were to get a car, what do you think you'd get? Realistically, within budget, so don't tell me you'd get a 360." So I'm thinking for a second, and he throws out the MX-5, which I've always loved, and tells me I can probably get one for under $30k. Well, shit, now I'm not gonna be able to get that out of my head. Henceforth, I'm gonna see if I can get enough saved up for the downpayment by sometime next year, though apparently a loan may be a problem with that car (not to mention road tax, plus insurance for a damned soft-top). Ah well, at least when I do get one, I can console myself since it really does make for a good (and fun!) daily car. Too bad that damned Golf GTI is way out of my budget.

Champagne has been put off til next week, owing to the stupid amounts of alcohol on Friday (I arrived at the club only to face down 7 trays of shooters, and 4 jugs of vodka-something), and the fact that py insisted on paying for the one bottle that I did order. Well, hopefully this time I can actually get a table booked. Alternately, find a somewhat quieter place, like Villa Bali or Wine Network.

Anyways, dinner and beer was fun. Some of the old gang together again, shooting the bull. I swear, we're having the same conversations now that we did 7, 8 years ago. 10 years from now, I would hope we still haven't grown up. :p
