the Other Side lives NICE
So someone I know just bought a new Beemer, and they got a one-month gym membership at Next Generation Kings Park in their welcome pack — because BMW sponsors the place, or whatever — and gave me the voucher. Apparently everyone thinks I need to get off my skinny butt once in a while.
Since it’s totally on the way to/from work and stuff, Matt said I should just use it for the month, even if it’s just to see how the Other Side lives. I went to join up after work last night (the voucher expires on the 30th, and yes, I know I like to leave everything to the last minute) and ooooooooh, it’s so FANCY!!!
Amusingly, this is on their membership info page:
How much is membership to a Next Generation Club?
We like all of our prospective members to come along to the club and see the fantastic facilities available, allow us to meet you in person and give you a chance to experience Next Generation Clubs first-hand before making a decision. In addition, due to the various membership categories that we offer, we feel it best to discuss which category will be best suited to your needs.
Translation: If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
But that shouldn’t be surprising: they are sponsored by BMW… although that doesn’t really seem to be a very effective marketing choice on Auto Classic‘s part — there were more Porches that Beemers in the parking lot.
Book Challenge Update: only 59 pages to go before I finish PD9 — sweet.
