Gonna Drive It All Around This World

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

After 10 months without a car, I finally caved and re-entered the automotive community.  Here are some things I learned over the last 10 months.

  • I read a LOT more when I take the train everywhere.  If I had a car, I probably wouldn’t have made it through all those pirate books.
  • I never get sick of walking.
  • I’m not really into biking.  Despite my best efforts, I just don’t enjoy it all that much.
  • iGo is a great idea, but I barely ever used it.  When I did, it took me 20 minutes to figure out how to turn the stinking Prius on.
  • Without a car, I saw less of my friends who live along the blue line (or along no line.)
  • Buses aren’t as bad as I thought.  They can get you where you want to go.
  • The freedom of having a car is no joke.  I’m totally going to Home Depot today.
  • I can’t think of anything I enjoy less than the process of buying a car.

Oh man, I just went on You Tube to see if they had a clip of John Prine singing “Automobile” and found this great clip of him on Soundstage.  It kills me that they fade it out at the end.


Does John Prine’s car have a visor of some sort? What’s going on there?
