The car of the future

Well, if you read my last post you know that there's been some bitterness in the family about Bobbi's new car. That being said, I'm currently researching a new car for myself. It's not that I feel entitled or anything (although I am freaking awesome), but rather that we really need something bigger than my KIA. The girls are starting to take up a lot of room in the back seat, mostly because they're huge leviathans of the human race. Seriously, my girls are big. Last month Mackenzie turned one and killed a bear with her bare hands on the same day. It's scary.

I read an article today in Newsweek about how Chrysler is redesigning its minivan. They got the same guy who designed the 300m to lend his magic touch to the Chrysler Town and Country. It's very exciting. He put bigger wheels on it, a bigger grille, and some cool touches inside so that now it looks like... a minivan. Why don't they understand that the reason minivan sales are lagging is because people don't want to be seen driving a minivan. I swear there's a huge market that they're overlooking. All they need to do is design an SUV with back doors that open like a minivan. Make a car that looks like a Ford Explorer but when you press a button the back doors slide back and people will line up to buy them. It shouldn't be too hard to do and it makes things so much easier with kids because you don't have to worry about them banging the door into the car next to you (or not being able to squeeze into the door to strap your child into the car seat). Mark my words, Japan will do it first.

Last night I was looking back at some old posts here on the Boolog and was thinking that I'm not as funny now as I used to be. I think the problem is that I'm still getting used to this voice recognition software. Then again, I could just be lame. So here's a joke:

A grasshopper walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, you know we have a drink named after you?" and the grasshopper says, "Really, you have a drink named Bob?"

Thank you. I'll be here all week.
