Right now I'm driving a 2005 Honda Accord Coupe. I love it. Great on miles, quiet ride, quite a beauty I think. But Vlad knows that I'm dying for BMW or Mercedes and I know that he'd love a big SUV! So we will see where that goes
And just for kicks, my little brother has quite the truck. He always wanted a truck and when he finally got one the word around the house was "There will be NOTHING added to this truck!!". Well he got quite a bit added- you can't even see it all or appretiate it all fromt he picture, but it is quite amazing. Ask Vlad, that truck is loud and fast- but a fun ride
I won't lie, I enjoy driving it around from time to time!!
have to say, us city folk don't drive too much! i wish i could walk to work. i hate taking the MTA!
My husband is subway-phobic. He makes me promise never to go on it (I don't want to go into the various weird concerns he has....). So we bus, walk and drive. Luckily, since I'm home with my kids, I don't have a daily commute.
i know after 9/11 never know what can happen on the trains, suicide bombers or some kind of chemical substance released in the tunnles, all that stuff scares me, but i have to take it, nothing i can do otherwise to get to work. it's a long commute too. 1.5 hours on a good day! a bus and TWO trains! it's a pain, i just hope nothing happens.
My husband doesn't even have those as his (exclusive) objections. I was 'banned' from the subway when I got pregnant with our first -- almost 12 years ago! I think I've been on it perhaps twice since then.
wow. well from what i hear the trains has gotten much better. i've never been mugged or attacked, thank god. and considering i carry expensive bags i'm pretty lucky. but one day i'm sure there will be someone out there who will study designer bags and use that as his way of picking out who to mug.
but trust me, i'd rather be in your position, not having to take the train would be wonderful!
Same boat I'm afraid - the train and the bus take me pretty much everywhere. Have since I was a kid actually, so it doesn't bother me so much. Did for a while though - you remember the bombings in London over the summer? All the suicide bombers came from my home town. One even studied at the same university that I'm at now. It still scares me to think there are people like that in my own backyard - my mum and I both take the train, and there have been armed police crawling all over the station ever since. Hopefully these sickos will think twice before pulling something like that again.
When I was in London this past Oct, I took the tube (subway) all the time during the day and cabs during the night. After my initial fear went away I loved how convient it was! But I do understand what your saying english girl.
