cloud nine was never so high

my feet aren't even touching the ground right now because i'm riding SO HIGH on the news that my new baby arrived fresh off the boat from vietnam and is ready to be picked up!

BEHOLD THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS MY NEW RIDE!!!

i have always wanted a vespa and back at the end of june i found this beauty on ebay and just went for it! what can i say, it was a full moon! she made her way all the way from hochiminh city, vietnam on board a cargo ship named the olympian racer to come and live with me in alabama - how cool! and now i just have to find a way to get her the two miles from the pick-up site to my house... considering i don't know how to ride it yet! ha! 
i am so silly but i keep thinking of awesome outfits i should wear while cruising around on it to envoke this image:

OOOooh! You have the most stylish ride ever! Seriously if I could have that or a car, I would steal your vehicle. I think Roman Holiday did it to me too! ^_^
P.S. Haven't made the abroad "announcement" yet and the visa stuff is still getting sorted...

Moments of unbridled joy are few - don't let anything/anyone rob you of this one. It's beautiful, and will only be more so with you atop! Not since Audrey sped through Roma flashing her glorious smile will a Vespa be so lucky! (I'm adding my true identity to this post,emphatically!)
