Object of desire XV



Go to the ICON 4X4 homepage and experience that special thrill you can only have when seeing an true object of desire and where you just know that "I really, really...really want one of those". Sure it's a truck and not a car. Sure it's unnecessarily big for your everyday commute. And quite surely there are zillions of cars more suited to city life. But look at it... Look at the paintwork. The suspension. The rapt attention given to even the minutest detail...

I'm actually finding myself trying to work out an equation including my carbon footprint where at the end, I can have one. So, if I ride my electric bike five of seven weekdays thus saving loads of environment, can I drive it to work one day and go on a little weekend trip, then? Oh, they don't sell them in Sweden? Well, suppose I sell my house and move to California, live in the hills and work in a vineyard...then can I have one? Please? Pretty please, with ecologic fairtrade sugar on top?

Object of desire XIV

This is the DeLonghi kMix collection espresso-maker. Apparently, it's not available in Sweden yet, so I will have to
a) order it from broadwaypanhandler.com
b) ask someone to bring it back for me, or
c) fly over there and get it myself




alternative d) (not having this piece of art) is not an option.

Telling tiles

My new hobby is creating three-dimensional objects of a datamatrix. I make them out of those small pieces of plastic tube the kids use at Kindergarten, where you first assemble the plastic tubes on a grid, then iron the whole thing with a waxed paper in between.

My next project is to re-tile my bathroom with mosaic...

Time for a new ride?

So, I finally did something I never thought I would do. I've put my Honda Zoomer up for sale, and on top of that I'm offering to sell it for half of what I paid for it, just to make sure that band-aid comes off really quickly. Why? Because I want to have the new Ecoride Trend electric-bicycle!

Why? Because I love the concept of cruising into and around town in my tweed jacket, while reading a book...on the way to my favourite café... Or riding it to meetings with my clients, who seem to think it utterly and endlessly important to have the latest Range Rover/Ferrari/Mercedes or whatever. So much for that.

It will also be fun to figure out alternative ways to charge it. A miniature-wind farm? A solar panel on my roof? I wonder how long it will take until I have a Brammo, too...

UPDATE: It's been almost two weeks since sold the Zoomer and aquired the bike. So far, it has lived up to my expectations excellently. My next mod on it will be to replace the mudguards with recycled wooden blinds.

Travel

OK, I wanna go home. To Oz. Miss the surf!
