man fantasy: FULFILLED.

do you see this face? this is one happy man. yes, this is one happy man driving a sporty, expensive car that is not his. fo FREE. yup, instant love.


this is the 2008 lexus sc430 that the stein eriksen lodge loans out to certain guests. i'm not really sure why they offered it to us. all i know is that in all, ALL of our 17 years of hotel staying, we have never-ever-ever been offered something of this magnitude. i think they saw this poor guy who was overrun by 5 women/girl creatures, and, frankly--they felt oh-such pity for him.

whatever the reason was, they offered it to us for a "date night" and we snatched it right up. all we had was our SHIZZY disposable camera to document his fantasy, so most pics didn't take, but the car was black like this:


this is it from the side--i think it's really quite snazzy.


when we got there that night to take it out for a spin, giddy like kids on christmas morning, the valet said, "sir, would you like me to put the top down?"
we turned to each other and smiled. it was a CONVERTIBLE!!!


russ must have said about 13 million times how much he loved the color of the interior--i kept saying, "well, all we have to do is come up with roughly $70,000 and it could be ours."


i think he really debated for a few minutes about having me kidnapped and waking up in a tub of ice with my kidney gone--sold for this little beauty.


we were so excited--we kept thinking that ashton kutchner would jump out from behind the lighted trees and yell, "PUNKED!!!!!" he never showed.

ho, hum......just another boring night in our luxury sports car.


unfortunately, we had to return it. i think they would have held our kids hostage if we didn't come back. we decided we'd rather keep them, and just have happy memories about that car.....

They must have known you were this huge blogging celebrity.

All we got were pity looks and maybe a scratch or two on my sweet Hyundai.

But your suite was about 3 times the size of ours. And we thought we were wealthy.

You lucky little Beeotch! Why didn't you want to take your acura? Oh... yeah it was wrecked and you were driving as you call it a miniture. I say you were driving a vangina...

Only time will tell if you made the right choice.

Wow! That looks vaguely familiar! I think I passed gas in that seat russ was sitting on! Bag getting the wrecked car back, go for the Lexus convertable!

Your husband totally looks like a stud driving that car. I don't think it's just a man fantasy though, I would LOVE to have it too. In the words of Napoleon, "LUCK-Y!"

What I want in life is to some day stay at a hotel so nice that my valet knows more about my $70,000 car than I do. Impressive.

Wow, that is one of those things that never happens to someone you actually know, I feel special just saying that I know you...
