Essentially I am an old fashioned girl. Yes, I admit I love my online technology but when it comes to every day technology I am a bit of a Luddite. The one new technology that I have never got my head around is GPS units for the car. I mean...have you got one? What's with that?! What's wrong with a paper map!! For goodness sake, there's no excuse now we have got Google Maps!!
Well...I am afraid I am going to have to eat my hat. I am currently staying with a friend in Brisbane. I plucked up courage to have a little drive around on Saturday. Just for the fun of it, I switched on her GPS unit. He talks with an Irish accent and is called Seamus.
Oh...my...goodness....I am totally in love with Seamus...he is amazing. I'm going to tuck him in my suitcase and take him back to New Zealand. Never again to fiddle around with maps...having to stop and start to read them...putting your finger through the seams...arguing with hubby because he wants to go in the total opposite direction to the way the map says you should go.
The only snag is...Dunedin is a three horse town so I know my way around really well and cannot justify eloping with Seamus. So what I'll have to do is run away with him to a big Australian city and live happily ever after :)
