Goodbye Mapquest, Hello Open Road

Matt just bought me a GPS, and I must say, I am LOVING it. I type in the address of wherever I am going, and an authoritative female voice tells me exactly how to get there. I type in places I already know how to get to, just to see what she'll say. Tonight I typed in "Ross," because I wanted to do a little bargain shopping. She gave me a wonderful new route I had never considered before.

She is very knowledgeable and loves to share information. Sometimes she can be a little bit of a Know-It-All, but I know she's just trying to do her job.

She gets a little frustrated with me if I don't follow her directions. She'll kind of sigh under her breath as she states, "reCALculating..." in her most even tone.

But I think deep down, she really likes me.
