My real-life character finally caught up with my World of Warcraft characters and I bought a mount today.
Ever since 2003 I’ve been talking about buying a car. When I moved to Texas, DNA put me up with a car. Then I moved back to the Bay Area and I could either borrow a car or I would just take a bus. Then I bought a bike and I rode that around. But with the job change, my commute changes and requires a car.
So as I’ve grown a bit, my taste in cars has too. It’s gone everywhere from a Mini Cooper to a VW Golf to a Subaru Outback to an Audi A3 to finally a Toyota Prius. The Prius is the lamest looking of the bunch, but it has a lot of buttons on the inside that do things like talk to me and make topographic maps float above my head. It even has a rear view camera so I can see evil ninja tacos approaching from behind. The geek in me, which is a large part of me, is rather satisfied.
And it gets eighty-fiveity billion miles per gallon so I bet I’ll pick up some hot hippie chicks in it. Yay…
