Hi all,

My fave car in the whole wide world is a Jag, but it'll be a while before I can afford one. And anyway, I think I'll look better in it as an older Lady.

My current dream car is the one pictured: a Mini in British Racing Green (metallic). Yes, British cars are the best!! I hope to be able to afford to lease one next year. I am currently driving an 8-year-old red VW Polo. It's perfectly OK, but it's not super cool like the Mini. And the paint on the Polo is starting to chip - and you know how us fashionistas hate chipped paint! And it's not as easy to touch up chipped paint on our car as it is on our nails.

I also want my next car to be an automatic. Eventhough the Mini is kind of a sporty car and it does, therefore, seem a bit corny to get an automatic. But considering my driving skills, believe me: it's simply a wise move.

So for once I'm publishing a photo that I nicked off the internet instead of one that I've taken myself (nearly all the photos in this blog were taken by Pink Lady).

Pink Lady is a huge Madonna fan and I love the rapped section of the song American Life. She raps about being very, very with it, i.e. drinking a soy latte (Pink Lady drinks espresso or capuccino - with cow's milk, not soy), about doing yoga and pilates (Pink Lady does both) - and about driving a Mini Cooper. She also raps about "diggin' on the isotopes" - not quite sure what that means. So, for your reading pleasure, here are those lyrics:

I’m drinkin’ a soy latte, I get a double shoté
It goes right through my body and you know I’m satisfied
I drive my Mini Cooper and I’m feeling super-duper
Yo’, they tell I’m a trooper and you know I’m satisfied
I do yoga and Pilates and the room is full of hotties
So I’m checkin’ out the bodies and you know I’m satisfied
I’m diggin’ on the isotopes, this metaphysics s*** is dope
And if all this can give me hope you know I’m satisfied
I got a lawyer and a manager, an agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant and a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler and a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist, do you think I’m satisfied?
I’d like to express my extreme point of view
I’m not a Christian and I’m not a Jew
I’m just livin’ out the American dream
And I just realized that nothin’ is what it seems

Is this like an ebonics infused rap? I don't get it.

Hi Marge,

You'd have to ask Madonna that - or whoever writes her lyrics. I just thought it was funny. BTW, love your blog! :-)

P.S. I had to look up the word "ebonics". You learn something new every day...
