Tuesday Reverie: Improving the GPS

Posted on
Sep 25, 2012

I’m just saying … I think it would encourage me to pay better attention to the directions.

“Turn … LeeeeEEEEFT!”

Because frankly, right now she sounds all hoighty-toighty and bossy.

  • I bet you could download Sloth’s voice. I know our Garmin let’s you set it to whatever you find out in the interwebs…..

  • Jodi

    Too funny. My co-worker calls his GPS Joanne, because that is the name of his bossy, know-it-all sister-in-law.

  • Tori

    Don’t we all?!? Life would be so much more enjoyable hearing Sloth each day!

  • Theresa

    Her real name is Monica & Monica is rather impatient and bossy! We take her on vacations with us 😉

  • I have Homer telling me where to go. Seriously. Homer. He tells me i’m a genius when I make it to my destination.

  • When my daughter was little, she named our GPS “Jeema” so that’s what we still call it, whichever model we possess, 5 years later. I can’t see this name changing regardless of how many we burn through. It’s kind of like that one fish named Fred. You know — ALL OF THEM EVER?

  • Whoa. Rand received this rather remarkable gift from someone at a conference and it's led to a lot of discussion in our house about the verisimilitude of it. Also, is it weird that people are constantly giving us likenesses of ourselves?
  • Little dude learning to skip rocks on a crystal clear Bavarian lake. Traveling with @wilreynolds & @norapreynolds is the best. #randtookthis #nofilter #bavariansunset #latergram
  • We visited an Abbey where monks brew beer. Somebody's photobombing us. And this was before the drinking. #randtookthis
  • Just visited my step-mother for the first time since my father died. She gave me a box of photos, many which I'd never seen, including this one of my grandfather on my parents' wedding day. This image of him, his face obscured by smoke, is fascinating to me. In my lifetime, I'd never seen him pick up a cigarette, ever.
  • Cheers! Not sure who was more excited to toast over dinner here in Bavaria. Both Rio And Wil look equally psyched.
  • This again. Off to Germany. Really nervous to see Dad's final resting place for the first time. But this guy has been super supportive. So grateful for him. #thisagain #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaplane
  • My husband's grandfather hugged me goodbye after we had breakfast today, and said, "Take care of my little boy." If you need me, I will be crying forever and ever and ever.
  • Geraldine lost her voice (from recording her AUDIO BOOK!) and so made this handy card to take around at the #Mozcon Local afterparty. #randtookthis
  • Geraldine's uncle, Andy, explains to her, in his Cockney accent, how her book was very well written, even though "half the stories were rubbish." Of course her aunt never would say that you can get bubonic plague from cats... No way. (he read a preview copy - final version comes out May 4th) #randtookthis #everyonesacritic #allovertheplace
  • This is Kevin Eastman (of Eastman & Laird fame)'s actual frickin' studio. He mostly does interviews and photoshoots here, but I'm pretty sure 13-yr old me would be FREAKING OUT if he knew I'd seen this in person. #TMNT #randtookthis #turtlepower
