Quick update – My motorcycle (without gears) diaries begin now. The shiny sexy thing is here. Please welcome her to all the madness! For now she sits pretty next to the car and our parking area looks colourful, pretty, and a little more mine. The only cruising I have done until now is putting on a brave show for the neighbours and laundry people while I scream, screech, accelerate, brake, and generally feel like the Jack Bauer of the colony.
P.S. You hear all the talk about weight loss etc? I think it is time to give some thought to my nawaabi lifestyle. A gym in my otherwise wayward life would be good idea. A lot needs to change around here, especially the weighing machine reading! What you sow and all that. More on that later.
