One of the guys at Nerd Night recently commented on how many gadgets I have, what between my iPod and my Nintendo DS, this coming from a guy with a flashy sportscar with a suped up sound system. The way I see it, as a Metro rider, I am my car. An iPod is the best sound system I can get. My game boy provides me with a certain bucket seat of comfort in which I can sit and block out the world around me.
As much as I complain about taking Metro, I do love learning the price of gas from random LJ laments and wondering where my car is and when the last time I drove it was when I go searching for it in the parking lot.
