Help From Siri

Well. Siri came through for us last night. The first time I ever had to call her and ask for real-time assistance. We had driven into the city for a concert. We were a bit later than I’d planned and the parking garage I’d intended to use was full. I’d not printed out any other possible locations, it was getting close to concert time, it was raining. I grabbed the phone and called Siri.

Ahuva: Siri, I need parking garages near where I am.
pause while my husband looks at me as if I am crazy (crazier than he already thinks I am)
Siri: I have found several parking lots near where you are.
phone displays list of addresses, including one on the next street
Ahuva: Touch the first one on the list and figure out which streets it’s between.

*grin* As it happens, that lot was full but it had a LIVE PERSON standing at the entry and he said there was space at the one 2 blocks over.

We parked, made the concert in time, even including beverages, and had a FANTASTIC Surfin’ Safari evening. Just remember you need to keep Siri charged if you want her to have the energy to handle such requests.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
