Life imitates art....

It has begun. It wasn't enough merely to visualize a superhero who had both every gadget imaginable, but, more importantly, enough pockets to stash them all in (sadly, life really does imitate art). Apparently, it wasn't enough that people already jokingly suggest GG plotlines as if he weren't actually fictional, and not just inspired by me. Today, the process of acquiring such super-human attributes for myself has begun.

Today is my 2^5-2^2, er, 3^3+3^0, er, 28th birthday, and I got a black Scott eVest Classic Vest 4.0. I'm still only figuring out where all of the multitude of hidden features are, but I hope to report back soon on how well it carries the multitudes of gadgets I normally have with me. So far, so good, so very very good.

Today is also Piaggio 2x day - the day that the number of miles I've ridden on my Piaggio Typhoon passes twice the number of miles I managed to ride on my eGO cycle before it completely fell apart. I got there much faster, too - the eGO lasted almost a year and a half, but was broken down (and range-restricted) often enough that it didn't really serve as a replacement for my car. Meanwhile, the Piaggio has taken over almost all of my commuting. So, in a little over 10 months, I've replaced more than 3600 miles of travel with the Typhoon, saving 84 gallons, a more than 3/4 of a ton of CO2 emissions. Meanwhile, the eGO website has barely changed in that time. I guess I wasn't the only one with problems with their product.
