Tesla

It's safe to say that I become easily obsessed with things from time to time. I occasionally go through phases of compulsively "needing" to do certain things. I've spent weeks scrapbooking during my free time, only to set it aside and not pick it back up. It's been nearly a year now and I'm not any closer to resuming. I read all of the Twilight books in FOUR days. I realize this isn't exactly something to be proud of, but it sure does drive my point home. My current obsession is knitting. I know, I'm an old lady, but these scarves I've been knitting are SO soft. Positively luxurious.

Speaking of luxury...my latest car obsession is Tesla.

It's actually been an obsession for a while since I first saw the Model S online, but even more so once I saw people actually driving them around. They sure are pretty. The lines, the emblem, the lights. I could go on. Not only is it an electric car, but it's got some get up and go, too. You can't really argue with an American-made, electric car that has zero emissions and can still make it 60mph in 4.2 seconds (on the Model S Performance). Unfortunately, since I live in a condo, I don't have any place to plug one in. Not that it matters much because I also can't afford one. Not even at the base price.

Those minor details won't stop me from admiring them from afar. Or possibly even closer. I've been looking into applying for a job at Tesla. I'm certainly not qualified to be one of their welders (even though that was my favorite section in art class), but I could certainly hack it as one of their office personnel. Ideally, I'd like something with hours that would allow me to still work at my current job because I need the money honey! Unless of course they want to pay me significantly more than I make at my current job, in which case, I'm sure you know what I'd be doing. After all, I do miss working in the automotive industry.
